Don’t be intimidated by making scones, they are really easy to make. I used Organic Valley Egg Nog which is naturally gluten free. I only used 1/3 of a cup in the entire recipe but these scones aren’t necessarily low fat. But it is the holidays, right? And who isn’t looking for an easy recipe?
Gluten Free Eggnog Scones
- 11 ⁄2 cups gluten-free all-purpose flour
- 1 ⁄4 cup coconut flour
- 1 ⁄2 teaspoon xanthan gum
- 1 ⁄4 cup unrefined sugar
- 2 teaspoons gluten-free baking powder
- 1 ⁄8 teaspoon salt
- 1 ⁄2 cup coconut oil
- 2 large eggs
- 1 ⁄3 cup eggnog
- 1 teaspoon wheat-free vanilla extract
- 1 ⁄4 cup white chocolate chips more for melting and drizzling on top
In a large bowl, mix together the flours, xanthan gum, sugar, baking powder and salt. Work in the coconut oil until the mixture is crumbly.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, eggnog, and vanilla until frothy. Add to the dry ingredients, stirring until well blended. The dough will be sticky.
Fold in the chocolate chips.
Drop the dough onto the parchment paper or silicone mat and form into a circle in the center of baking sheet. Cut circle into 8 triangles.
Sprinkle the scones with extra sugar if desired. Bake for 15–20 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and let cool for at least 5 minutes before drizzling extra melted white chocolate of desired.
I can’t tell you enough how simple these are to prepare. They are perfect for Christmas breakfast and even better with a nice hot cup of tea (or coffee of course). You MUST try these. They really are amazing.
