Chocolate Chip Scones (Gluten & Dairy Free)

Nothing beats a Sunday morning breakfast! I wanted to make something different… this morning I set out to make scones…..and not just any scones mind you….but amazing, melt in your mouth delectable chocolate chip scones! I wasn’t sure how these would turn out dairy and gluten free, but you can’t tell the difference! They are nice and light and flaky. They are super easy to make, I cut the recipe in half to just make 4, but you can easily double it if you want more. This ones definitely a keeper and since its so quick and easy to make, I’m sure I’ll be making these more often! Enjoy! 🙂

Chocolate Chip Scones (Printable Version)

1 c gluten free flour

1/2 tsp xanthan gum

2 Tbsp sugar

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/8 tsp baking soda

1/8 tsp salt

1/4 c non-dairy butter

1/4 c mini Ghirardelli chocolate chips

1/2 tsp vanilla

1/3 c almond milk + dash lemon juice

Egg Mixture:

1 egg, lightly beaten

1 Tbsp almond milk


1/2 Tbsp sugar

Dash cinnamon

Mix almond milk and lemon juice and let sit 5 minutes. In large bowl, mix dry ingredients. Cut butter in with pastry blender until coarse crumbs. Stir in chocolate chips. Add milk & vanilla and stir until dough comes together. On lightly floured surface knead dough 4-5 times, then pat into a circle, about 1 inch thick. Cut into 4 equal wedges. Place scones on a parchment paper covered baking sheet. Brush with egg mixture. Sprinkle topping evenly on top of scones. Bake at 400 for 15-20 minutes or till golden brown. Check with toothpick. Transfer to wire rack to cool.
