Hey there beautiful scone! Yes, you the one with all those delicious chocolate chips! Oh, you are gluten-free? That is perfect!
Not only is this gluten-free chocolate chip scone delicious but it is also free from the TOP 8 most common allergens. Yes that means NO: dairy, soy, nuts, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, fish and wheat!
Have you ever eaten a scone? It has been years since I have got to eat one. I used to get them at our small town coffee shop before I had to eat gluten-free.
There are some scone mixes out there, but this from scratch gluten-free scone recipe is not hard. It takes a little patience, but I think its worth it!
What is a scone?
After all, scones are the perfect partner for a cup of coffee! So you might be asking yourself, what exactly is a scone? Well that is a great question!
The public generally compares a scone to a biscuit type of baked good. However, that is not entirely the case. Biscuits are sturdy, so you can put butter and jam on them. They have layers and a bit of air to them.
Scones on the other hand are more crumbly and a touch drier. Do not misread that they are dry. They are not, they are just slightly drier than a biscuit.
Scones are delicious when baked with herbs, fruits and chocolate. You can even dress up your scone just like you would your biscuit!
I am talking about butter, jam, the whole nine yards! Live it up!
Today, we are focusing on chocolate chips. After all, a little sweet treat with your coffee can change your day for the better! Am I right?
Chocolate for the WIN!
You may have heard the story before, but if not, let me share it. When my youngest child was diagnosed with multiple food allergies, it was scary.
I was scared at what I could feed him. I am so thankful that I found Enjoy Life Foods. We knew that I could safely feed him anything from their entire product line.

After making this multiple times and testing the recipe, I found that chilling your dough is key. Also, forming your scone so that it is not too dense.
If you get your scone too high, it will not bake properly. For me, I formed my dough circle/oval to about a 9 inch shape. With that width, my dough was about 3/4 of an inch to an inch tall. That is a good height.
I chilled my dough before cutting into pieces. I think that helped retrain the shape well. Once you remove the dough from the fridge, cut the dough into pieces.
Once your pieces are cut you are going to bake them. Then place on a rack to cool.
I chose to put a simple chocolate glaze on some of my gluten-free chocolate chip scone pieces! I also left some plain!
We used some powdered sugar, cocoa powder and dairy-free milk to make the glaze!
I do not know what your tummy is saying but mine is getting hungry! All this talk about gluten-free chocolate chip scones has got my belly grumbling!
