There’s nothing better on a cool afternoon than hot scones straight from the oven spread with lashings of butter and jam. This gluten free recipe is really quick and easy and doesn’t need many ingredients.

I use Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free All Purpose Flour because I love the results I get with it but you could try this with any gluten free flour. You may need to adjust the amount of liquid a little if you do and if the flour you use has xanthan gum in it then there is no need to add that either.

This recipe can also be dairy free if you use dairy free milk and is nut free, egg free and soy free.

Gluten Free Scones


  • 2½ cups (325g) Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free All Purpose Flour

  • 1 tsp xanthan gum

  • Extra milk for brushing scones with


Heat oven to 200°C

Line a tray with baking paper

Put all of the dry ingredients into a food processor and combine

Add solid coconut oil and blitz until it resembles fine bread crumbs (you could also just use a bowl and run it in)

Add the milk to the mixture and gently mix with a spoon

Tip out soft, sticky dough onto a lightly floured mat on the bench

Knead gently until smooth and spread out to about 2cm thick

Use a small round cutter (about 5cm) to cut out the scones and place on prepared baking tray
