Gluten Free Vegan Vanilla Scones (xanthan free, sugar free, soy free)


Gluten Free Vegan Vanilla Scones-

Scones are this neat rustic cross between a biscuit and a cake.    Sweet, but sturdy.  Perfect for breakfast, slicing open and spreading with jam or your favorite nut or seed butter.  I’m a fan.  My mom used to make terrific oat scones when we were little and since then I’ve been kinda wondering how you could pull off a sturdy sweet-like concoction without eggs.

As with most things it seems, this recipe kinda happened to me by accident. I’ve been trying like the dickens to figure out a gluten free, xanthan free vegan vanilla cake.   This is the result of one of those many tries :)

You’ll note an unusual ingredient in here- pureed white beans. yup.  As I was hunting around, I came across and noticed how she used beans in her vanilla cake.  I was impressed- I tried the recipe and it worked! So, for the next little while I’m going to see what I can do with them.  Its kinda fun :)Gluten Free Vegan Vanilla Scones-

You’ll notice that the scone has a really nice soft dense texture to it-aaaaalmost cakelike, but not quite.  One day, one day!

 So, here we go. Onwards!

  1. Hi there Katey!

    I was thinking about this… hmm. Ok, so, you could add 1/4 cup more coconut flour, and add 1/4 more beans. I’d also add in 2 tsp of oil to replace the natural oils in the almond flour. I wonder if quinoa flakes would work- they are also pretty structured- just make sure to roast the flakes at 250 for about an hour to remove that yucky grassy taste from them (quinoa sometimes tastes a little funky). Hope this helps!! :D

  2. These look delicious! My son can’t eat almonds, though. Any suggestions for substitutions for the almond flour?? Thanks!!
