Cranberry Lemon Scones ~ A Grain & Gluten-Free Recipe


The aroma of coffee brewing and breakfast baking is such a welcoming "hello" in the morning.  Scones are my hero because from start to finish, they reach the table in less than thirty minutes.  I tossed in a few white chocolate chips to make it an extra special treat.  Trader Joe's offers them this time of year and I usually stock up before Christmas is over and their supply runs out.  If you decide to opt out of them, drizzling a bit of honey over the scones is yummy since there is no sugar in the recipe.  Almond flour is naturally sweet so there's no need to add any other sweetener.  This recipe makes six large, Starbucks-sized scones.  You could easily make two disks and cut each up in sixths to make twelve mini scones (see pictures below).  This is definitely in the running for the coveted Christmas breakfast dish along with Easy, Cheese Ham & Potato Strata.

GF Cranberry Lemon Scones
Prep time: 10 minutes, bake time: 15-18 minutes, yields 6 scones
  • 2 cups blanched almond flour
  • 1/2 cup arrowroot powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon Celtic sea salt
  • 6 tablespoons butter or coconut oil
  • 2 eggs
  • zest from 1 lemon
  • juice from 1/2 of the same lemon (about 1 tablespoon)
  • 1/3 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/3 cup white chocolate chips (optional)
  • raw honey to drizzle over baked scones
  1. Preheat oven to 350º.
  2. Mix together flour, powder, soda, and salt.
  3. While the mixer is mixing, cut in butter, 1/2 tablespoon at a time, until dough is crumbly.  If you're using coconut oil, you can dump the whole amount in at once and mix until crumbly.
  4. Whisk together eggs and juice, then stir in cranberries and lemon zest.  Pour into dough and mix thoroughly. 
  5. Shape dough into a disk, about 1 inch thick.  Cut 6 pieces like cutting a pie.  Place pieces on baking sheet and bake 15-18 minutes or until hints of brown are around the edges.  Drizzle raw honey over scones just before serving.

  1. Oh thanks! I was just thinking I needed to find a special recipe to make as a food gift for one of my friends, she and one of her sons are gluten/dairy free so without the chocolate chips these should be perfect.....also, they seem very seasonally appropriate :o) Thanks for taking one item off of my Christmas to do list, now I can just have the fun of baking!

  2. Wonderful! Be sure to encourage her to enjoy them with honey drizzled over the top. It really makes the flavors pop. :) Merry Christmas!

  3. Just noticed the recipe calls for 1/4 cup of salt . Could you substitute something for the arrowroot powder to make it gaps friendly?

  4. Should it be 1/4t salt? I am assuming so:) we are making these now, but using orange instead of lemon:)

  5. Oh my goodness! Haha! Yes, 1 TEASPOON. :) I just fixed that. Thanks for the heads up. Orange should be super yummy, too.

  6. Yeah, I just fixed the salt measurement. It's supposed to be teaspoon, not cup. ;) You can use an extra 1/2 cup of almond flour instead of the arrowroot. It might be a bit harder to form the dough though, so you might want to make them like drop biscuits.

  11. I just made these, even though I didn't have any cranberries!! I used the entire lemon and added 3 Tbs coconut flour to firm up the dough and BOY WERE THEY GOOD! ;)

    We topped them with homemade honey butter... A-mazing! Thank you for all of the great grain free recipes. My family is reaping the benefits ;)

  12. Would the measurements remain the same if I used GF flour or reg. flour instead of the almond flour? So, if I wanted to sub. flour for 1/2c arrowroot...would it be 2 1/2 cups flour? Thanks :O)

  13. Hi Jennifer!
    I rarely use other gf flour than almond and coconut so I'm not sure how it would turn out. I'm thinking it would be a good guess to use 2 cups of another gf flour and skip arrowroot powder and almond flour.
