Just in time for Valentine’s day, these adorable heart-shaped gluten free scones will make your loved one super happy. If you are looking for a special gluten free recipe for Valentines Day or any other day really, look no further. These scones are AMAZING!
These might look cute and fancy, but basically it’s just a regular gluten free scone recipe and I used a heart -shaped cookie cutter to make them look adorable. And they look really adorable. These scones have no butter in them, just healthy coconut oil. They make the perfect breakfast (with a cup of joe or green tea) or dessert (with a glass of wine 🙂 )
Gluten Free Strawberry Pomegranate 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 plain Greek yogurt
- 1 teaspoon wheat-free vanilla extract
- 1/4 diced organic strawberries
- 1/4 cup pomegranate seeds
Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or use a silicone mat.
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, Greek yogurt, and vanilla until frothy. Add to the dry ingredients, stirring until well blended. The dough will be sticky.
Fold in the strawberries and pomegranates.
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 or use a cookie cutter to make 8 hearts.
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 serving.
These can be made with any fruit you like or have in the house. I picked these because I love them both and red for Valentines Day 🙂 You can also add dried cranberries, raisins, chocolate chips etc… whatever makes you happy. For me, these are what make me happy. Who will you make these for?
Have a great day!
