I like to recreate my favorite café memories from my pre-celiac days with our ZEGO products, like these gluten-free scones.
I mean, after all, why shouldn’t Celiacs be able to eat delicious scones too!
Okay, so I admit that during college, I decided that I didn’t have Celiac disease (anyone else??). It was very convenient for eating at cafes during a summer trip to London and Paris. Though my body revolted, my memories of those pastries and scones are still fresh.
Since then, I’ve tried gluten-free scones so many times and have been SO disappointed. I knew we could do better.
Trust me, you’re going to love this ZEGO recipe. And, compared to its insulin-spiking wheat-based scones, ours is a nutritional superstar with lots of protein, fiber, and iron.
So pull out your checkered napkins, put on some Nina Simone, and enjoy!
How This Gluten-Free Scone Recipe is Better
Scones are usually a high-glycemic, low-protein treat. But our gluten-free scones have extra:
from our Double Protein Oats and the seeds in our Muesli and Mix-Ins.
And, if you want to remove the sugar, just add in 8 chopped dates. The dough will be a bit less light, but still wonderful. And, when you bite into one of those soft bits of dates, you’ll be delighted.
- 160 g (about 1 1/4 c) ZEGO Apple Cranberry or ZEGO Cinnamon Twist Muesli
- 100 g (about 3/4 c) ZEGO Double Protein Oats, ground into flour
- 60 g (about 2/3 c) ZEGO Apple Cinnamon or ZEGO Cranberry Mix-Ins
- 50 g (1/2 c) sugar
- 3 tsp cinnamon, optional (recommended to use if you’re using the Cinnamon Twist Muesli)
- zest from 1 lemon, optional (recommended if you’re using the Apple Cranberry Muesli)
- 1/4 t xanthan gum, optional
- 1 tbs baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 c oat milk, dairy free milk, cream, or water
- 1/2 c dairy free or regular yogurt (coconut yogurt is not recommended)
- Sugar, optional for sprinkling on top (turbinado or white)
- Heat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and fit shelf in upper third of the oven.
- Combine the dry ingredients in a mixer fitted with the paddle attachment for 1 minute until well blended.
- Add the wet ingredients and mix on low for 2 minutes until the dough is thick and well combined.
- If the dough appears to be too thin, wait 10 minutes to let the oat flour absorb the liquid. If it still looks too thin, add more oat flour 1-2 tbs at a time. The dough needs to be firm enough that you can roll it into a log using parchment paper.
- Place the dough on a large sheet of parchment paper.
- With the help of the parchment paper, mold the dough into a cylinder 2-3″ thick depending on the size you want (2″ is small).
- Refrigerate for 2-3 hours.
- Remove the parchment from the chilled dough and cut into 1-2″ rounds. Note, if the parchment sticks too much to remove, no worries! Just slice the round and bake with the parchment on. You can peel it off before you eat.
- Place on a greased or parchment lined sheet.
- Sprinkle with sugar, if desired.
- Bake 20-35 minutes, depending on how thick your rounds are.
- Remove from the oven and eat warm or let cool. To reheat, sprinkle lightly with water and heat in a toaster oven on the bagel setting.
