Paleo Scones

Those of you that have followed me for a while, know that I have a thing with scones. They are a weekend breakfast staple and they used to be a weekly Starbucks treat. Sadly for me, not anymore Since giving up grain, I’ve been making double batches of a lot of things, including scones. By double batches, I mean regular and gluten free or grain free. So for me, finding a recipe that everyone would eat was very important.

For those of you also eating grain-free or paleo, I’m sure the idea of making two recipes is familiar to you. When you decide to make a change in what you eat that oftentimes means becoming a short-order cook so that you can eat what you need without frustrating your family.

This is one of the main reasons I created the Family KickStart Program. It’s a comprehensive 30-day whole eating program created with the whole family in mind. No more making one meal for you and another to keep the family happy. I’ve re-imagined so many family favorite recipes and created them without processed food, sugars or gluten.

The entire program is paleo compatible so you can keep on track while also helping your family enjoy a healthier lifestyle too. See more about the Family KickStart Program here, where I’ve created 4 weeks of meal plans, shopping lists, delicious recipes and everything else you need to succeed at eating clean as a family.

Do you know what happens to people like me that cook and photograph nearly everything? Things get lost in the photo-transfer shuffle. That’s what I call when I transfer my food photos for work and this blog into folders, I edit them, and then I forget that I photographed the recipe!

I’ve been making this recipe for months and yesterday I wanted to make it and thought to myself: oh! I’ll get it from the blog. I came to this website and this recipe was nowhere to be found. Surely I had published it, right? OH.NO. I had forgotten!

OMG These grain free blueberry scones are sooooo good!

Clearly, Baby G is 6 months older now… which tells you that I have way too many things going on at once. Since I took these photos, I’ve written one cookbook and I’m working on a second one as we speak. Call me crazy… because surely I don’t know why I put all of this on myself. Oh, yes… I do. I love the world of kids food.

So moving on to these scones. Last year, when I made the switch to a grain free diet (with the exception of the occasional rice and hummus) I didn’t know how to replace my most beloved recipes. Luckily, I stumbled upon this cookbook and it helped a lot. I modified its currant scone recipe (a lot) and it eventually became my own.

these grain free and paleo blueberry scones are delicious and super easy to make!

The dough is a little sticky so I found the easiest way to shape the scones was with a biscuit cutter. Of course, feel free to use your little helpers to stuff and shape these cones; especially if you are doubling the recipe.

Brushing them with a little milk makes the shinier and well… just that much more delicious.

Saturday and Sunday mornings is when I test new recipes, bake all things delicious, and hang out in our pjs for way to long. These scones represent the comfort of our weekends. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do.

Grain Free Blueberry Scones Recipe (Paleo)

These tasty paleo scones are made with coconut flour and almond flour. They are also grain and gluten free scones perfect for breakfast or snacking.

  • Author: Laura Fuentes
  • Cook Time: 20 mins
  • Total Time: 20 mins
  • Yield: 6 1x
  • Category: Breakfast & Baking


  • 1 3/4 cups blanched almond flour, sifted
  • 3 tablespoons coconut flour, sifted
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup almond milk (any milk will work), divided
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil, melted (butter will work too)
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 cup blueberries


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F
  2. Sift your almond and coconut flours directly into a stand mixer. Add honey, egg, 3 tablespoons almond milk, butter, lemon zest, baking soda, and salt to the flours. Mix until a loose dough forms. Gently fold in blueberries.
  3. Using your biscuit cutter as a shaper, fill it with 1/2-3/4 inch of dough. Press it down with your hands to form scone over lined baking sheet and lift cutter as you hold down dough to release. Repeat with remaining dough.
  4. Brush scones with remaining 1 tablespoon almond milk.
  5. Bake for 18-20 minutes until golden brown. Allow them to cool down slightly prior to eating.


  1. Store in an airtight container for up to 2 days. Warm again prior to serving.


  1. I double this recipe and freeze unbaked and shaped scones on a parchment lined sheet. Once frozen, I transfer them to a zip bag and freeze up to 3 months. To bake, remove from freezer while oven preheats and add 2-3 minutes to baking time.

    They look like hockey pucks.

    1. Laura Fuentes says:

      yes, well they are round and shaped like hockey pucks. Hopefully yours did not turn out like them! lol

  2. Kristin says:

    These are so good and a great recipe for little kids to help make! My three year old son loved helping and then eating them all up. We followed the recipe except we ran out of almond flour, so I used 3/4 of whole wheat pastry flour. Still turned out perfectly! Will definitely add to our recipe file. 🙂

  3. Becky says:

    I just made these for breakfast & they were delicious!! Thanks for the recipe!

  4. Kim says:

    mmmmmm….Any thoughts on a different “flavor”? Like cinnamon scones? Would I just add some cinnamon (coconut) sugar?

    1. Laura Fuentes says:

      You can try these pumpkin scones. I haven’t experimented with this recipe other than cinnamon raisin or fruit.

  5. I let you know on Twitter how much I love these scones!

    Mine were a little wet still and very doughy though, not as light and fluffy as the scones i used to eat where the ingredients were wheat flour butter sugar etc… I’m not sure if this is due to the difference in ingredients or I should have left them in longer?

    1. Laura Fuentes says:

      Emma, a little longer next time if they are too “wet” but they dont’ feel as dry as flour scones. Totally different flour texture. I’m glad you enjoyed them!

  6. Arlene says:

    I am allergic to honey. What can I use as a substitute for the honey without compromising the texture of the scone?

  7. Lisa says:

    Just made half a batch of these – without the blueberries – and they worked well, held together well to unlike so many that just crumble in your hands.


  8. Keona Baskin says:

    OMG!!!!! These were so delicious! Thank you Laura for that recipe and the variation options. I used dried cranberries and ghee; followed the rest to the letter. And my oh my, these were awesome! I made a lemon glaze, that didn’t turn so much out like glaze, rather a sauce, but all the same, it taste great with the scones. Again thank you and I love your recipes. I am new to paleo and so far am loving every bit of it.

    1. Keona Baskin says:

      Oh, and they held together great. Wish I could show a pic.

      1. Laura Fuentes says:

        Thank you!! Glad you enjoyed! You can always tag me on Instagram @LauraSFuentes 😉

  9. Kaitlin says:


    We can’t do nuts in our house–do you have any suggestions on what would make a good substitute for the almond flour? We’re pretty new to grain free eating–so far we have used mostly coconut flour. Thanks!

    1. Laura Fuentes says:

      You can use pumpkin seed or sunflower seed flours, which essentially is grinding the seeds into a flour like texture. I have a grain-free cookbook, The Best Grain-Free Family Meals on the Planet, that explains this process and makes sure how each recipe can be made nut-free.

  10. Kim says:

    Hi Laura! Thank you for a beautiful website and lots of inspiring recipes. I have to tell you, when I read comments on people’s blogs about recipes – I never know how the bloggers manage to continue being so polite and responsive! You’ve very clearly stated the expectations for this recipe, and provided lots of examples of other recipes if people don’t need grain free. And yet the comments from others don’t recognize that. You win a blue ribbon in my book for keeping your patience!

    I had some less-than-amazing blueberries, but your recipe saved them! The scones were delicious! I used a large, old school ice cream scooper to make the scones. I tend to use this ice cream scooper whenever I make almond/grain free biscuits. The dough is usually wet, and scooping out the biscuits makes it really easy!

    Again, thanks for the great recipes!

    1. Laura Fuentes says:

      What a great tip Kim! I know exactly the type of scoop you are suggesting and it’s brilliant! And thanks for the funny insight. I just try to put myself in their shoes and realize that not everyone has the same cooking/baking knowledge and they might need further clarification. Now, if they start substituting half the ingredients in a recipe with whatever they have on hand, I can’t help much; since I test my recipes a few dozen times for consistency and accuracy as written. I’m so glad the recipe helped you make the most out of your “less-than-amazing” blueberries!

  11. Jenn says:

    Holy moly are these good!!! I could eat a dozen in one sitting. I’m on a complete elimination diet, so I cheated a tiny bit by actually using the honey, but I used a little less than the recipe calls for. I also think the salt could be omitted as well, because they taste a bit too salty for me. Otherwise, THANK YOU! I was looking for a breakfast alternative from my daily protein shake and this is it. I’m so happy I can have something yummy and healthy at the same time that fits my diet. I would definitely make these again (and again and again). Any other recipes you have that you would recommend?

    1. Laura Fuentes says:

      How exciting, I wish you much success with your new healthy eating journey! I could send you on a recipe adventure around my site, but if you need more help all in one place, my grain free cookbook is just what you need 😉

  12. Cierra says:

    Just made these and they turned out amazing!! I swapped out the honey for agave, the coconut oil for vegan butter, and sprinkled the tops with coconut sugar. They are just sweet enough and the flavor combo is perfect! They turned out crisp on the outside, yet tender on the inside. Can’t wait to gobble these up all week!

    1. Laura Fuentes says:


  13. Tdkja says:

    So good! Left out the honey and used chopped dark choc and raspberries instead. Had better put them in the freezer before I eat them all!

  14. Kimberly says:

    I made these just as the recipe called for and formed by had as suggested. They came out absolutely delicious! Taste is just sweet enough and they were light and yummy! What us the nutrition facts on these?

    1. Laura Fuentes says:

      Hi Kimberly! I just updated the recipe to show you the nutrition facts per serving. Enjoy!

      1. Kimberly says:

        Thank you so much!

  15. Deen says:

    Hi my name is Deen can you use all coconut flour instead of almond flour

    1. Laura Fuentes says:

      Hi Deen! You can not. Coconut is 10x more absorbent and your scones will dry out and fall apart. sorry!

  16. Titi says:

    Hi Laura,

    I have just tried out this recipe, it’s scrumptious. I wanted to make a little over half the recipe but then added a quarter cup of honey by mistake which made it a bit runny, I decided to add a little more coconut flour to absorb the extra moisture, used a whole egg and after baking, it turned out right. I like it. Thanks for the recipe. Looking forward for more Gluten-free recipes. I didn’t add blueberries.

    1. Laura Fuentes says:

      I’m so glad you enjoyed them.

  17. LindaB says:

    Fabulous recipe! I think I may know why some bakers are finding their dough too wet to shape. The recipe calls for 1/4 cup of almond milk but if you read further you will find that only 3 tablespoons go into the dough. The rest is for brushing on top. I have been guilty of not reading through recipes before charging ahead

  18. Susan Skogg says:

    Can you make this recipe with an egg substitute? I’m allergic to egg whites.

    1. Laura Fuentes says:

      Hi Susan, this recipe can indeed be made with a flax-egg (1 tablespoon flax meal + 3 tablespoons warm water). Enjoy!
