Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Scones

READY IN: 25mins
YIELD: 8 scones




  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, xanthan gum, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Whisk or mix ingredients together until well-combined.
  • Cut butter into very small pieces. Blend butter into flour mixture using a pastry blender or two butter knives.
  • Stir in chocolate chips or chocolate chunks.
  • Whisk buttermilk and vanilla extract together in a small cup before adding it into the mixture. Stir until the dough comes together, but do not over-mix.
  • Transfer dough to a cool, floured surface and knead it four to five times. Pat the dough into a circle approximately 7 inches round and 1 1/2 inches thick. Cut the dough into eighths.
  • Make an egg wash by combining one well-beaten egg with 1 tablespoon of milk. Brush wash over the tops of the scones.
  • Make cinnamon sugar by combining granulated white sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle on top of the scones.
  • Transfer scones to a cookie sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into one of the scones comes out clean.
  • Remove from oven and transfer to a wire rack to cool.
  • Enjoy!
