Gluten Free Double Chocolate Scones

These gluten free chocolate scones are the perfect breakfast treat! They are full of chocolate flavor and will soon become a family favorite!

I have fallen in love with scones since first making my gluten free chocolate chip scones. These have a bold flavor and are sweet, without being too sweet, and they are great for snacking on during the morning or any time of the day!

Gluten Free Double Chocolate Scones
  • 1 Cup White Rice Flour
  • 1/2 Cup Cornstarch
  • 1/2 Cup Cocoa Powder
  • 1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 2 1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Xanthan Gum
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Flax-egg (directions on side of blog)
  • 1/2 Cup Butter
  • 1/2 Cup Heavy Cream
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Cup Chocolate Chips, optional
  1. Grate 1/2 cup butter onto a wax paper lined plate. Stick in the freezer until solid.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  3. In a large bowl, measure the rice flour, cornstarch, cocoa powder, brown sugar, baking powder, xanthan gum and salt. Whisk to combine.
  4. Add the heavy cream and vanilla to the flax-egg and combine.
  5. Take the butter out of the freezer and use a pastry cutter or your fingers to work it into the flour mixture. Once it is nice and combined, add the wet ingredients and stir until moistened.
  6. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  7. Pour out onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet and press together lightly to form an 8' disc. Dough will be a bit crumbly. Cut into about 10 scones. 
  8. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes.
  9. Remove from oven, cool, and consume.
