Recipe: How to Make a Gluten-Free Scone



  • 2 cups Gluten-free all-purpose flour (Bob’s Redmill makes a good one)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp. salt
  • 3/4 tsp. xantham gum
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/3 cup cinnamon chips, chocolate chips or other additive
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) cold butter, cut into pieces
  • 3/4 cup milk (I used vanilla flavored almond milk)
  • 1/2 cup plain fat-free yogurt
  • 2 tbsp cinnamon sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees
  2. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, xantham gum and baking soda into a large bowl.  Add cinnamon chips, chocolate chips or other additive and toss to combine.
  3. Cut butter into flour mixture with pastry blender or two knives until coarse crumbs form.
  4. Stir milk into yogurt in a small bowl until combined
  5. Gradually add wet ingredients to dry ingredients, stirring just until dough begins to form.  Transfer to surface sprinkled with flour.  Knead 5 or 6 times until dough holds together.  Divide into two pieces.
  6. Pat each dough piece into 5-inch circle about 1/2-inch thick.  Cut each circle into 6 wedges with floured knife.  Place scones 2 inches apart on un-greased baking sheets.  Sprinkle scones with cinnamon-sugar.
  7. Bake 10-14 minutes until lightly brown.
