I want to start this post off with a serious question.  What exactly are scones?  Are they just dressed up biscuits or  just fluffy-single serving cakes?   I am confused about what they actually are, but that really doesn’t matter.  Scones are delicious, sweet and just perfect in their own unusual way.  The world may never know what scones really are, but it’s a beautiful mystery.

This brings up another question that I always get confused about.  Since dolphins are considered whales, why aren’t whales considered dolphins?  Ok sorry, a little off topic that time.  Besides the point, who wouldn’t want a scone for breakfast?   I actually feel sophisticated when I eat a scone because I pretend I’m at a British tea party wearing a formal dress.  Then I remember that I hate wearing dresses and continue to eat my scone and sip my tea(pinky up) in sweatpants looking like I got hit by a train #judgeme.

When I was looking for a recipe to adapt from, almost all recipes included tons of butter.  I’m not against the golden spread, but I wanted to make these vegan for all my vegan homies out there (holla!).  I finally came across this recipe that included only a little bit of melted coconut oil.  Who says scones are always full of fat and sugar?  Not I, my friend!  These babies are gluten-free, vegan-friendly and refined sugar-free!    Roasting the strawberries brings out the sweet flavor even more and the addition of the toasted coconut is dynamite!

Gluten-free Roasted Strawberry and Toasted Coconut Scones

Ingredients

  • 2 cups gluten-free flour (I like this one
  • 1 Tbsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup hot water
  • 1 1/2 cup whole strawberries
  • 1/2 cup toasted coconut

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Place strawberries on a cooking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 20 minutes until roasted, set aside.
  3. Combine flour, baking powder and cinnamon in a large bowl.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine maple syrup, coconut oil and vanilla. Mash roasted strawberries into mixture.
  5. Add wet mixture to dry ingredients and stir well (batter will be dry). Add hot water to mixture and mix until all ingredients are completely combined. Add in toasted coconut and mix well.
  6. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Place parchment paper on a cooking sheet and drop batter by 1/3 cup measurements. Round edges with fingers so they are shaped like scones (or big cookies).
  7. Bake for 20 minutes, or until golden.
  8. Enjoy!

    I have no clue what scones are either, but I know delicious when I see it and I am gazing right at it <3 And this vegan homie appreciates the vegan take on scones. And GF too. All the things I want in a mystery pastry! I love the pretty pink color, and such a good idea rooting the strawbs first. And I busted out laughing at the whale part 😀 You write the best posts!

    Mmm I love scones! They remind me of my summer spent in Paris. I prefer coffee with my scones and I think of them kind of like a pastry rather than a cake or biscuit.

  • Reply Kim Smyth February 5, 2016 at 12:41 pm

    Looks and sounds delicious! I don’t use those kinds of flours though, would it work with coconut or almond flour?

    • Reply Bethany And Rachel February 6, 2016 at 1:11 pm

      I think almond flour would work best but you may need to adjust the liquid depending on how wet or dry the batter is!

    um…this needs to happen in my kitchen right now!

    It’s so creative and delicious sounding, I did a Tkatchev straight into a pak salto but then did a pak salto back up to the high bar.

    (Ps- readers must thing our interactions are so odd lol!)

      Heck yes! Thanks so much! That’s such a hard combo, isn’t a pac salto up to the high bars technically a shaposh? Either way that’s impressive and I’m sure you have the highest start value out of the whole world. The readers will never understand our interactions haha

  • Reply Heather @ Polyglot Jot February 6, 2016 at 7:36 pm

    Wow these look awesome! I think for me it depends on the texture of the scone. If it is dryer I think its more of a biscuit whereas some scones are really cakey. Either way, I love them! I am a coffee lover but love tea too. I dont discriminate between hot beverages 😀

    Hey Rachel! These scones look so delicious! I love everything strawberry 🙂

  • Reply Lauren @ i had a big lunch February 12, 2016 at 1:49 pm

    I would have to say a scone is a sweet biscuit…I don’t know it’s just not a cake to me! I’m all about anything coconut-flavored so this looks awesome! We have a place in Chicago called Scone City and it’s amaaaazing. I didn’t think I loved scones until I discovered them!

    Lol to the dolphin/whale question. Not a stupid question! Because now I’m wondering…haha

    • Reply Bethany And Rachel February 12, 2016 at 10:36 pm

      A sweet biscuit sounds right! I need to go to scone city that sounds awesome!

  • Reply Samantha February 15, 2016 at 8:23 pm

    Wow what a great combo! Love the sound of these flavours. I haven’t made gluten free scones as of yet and this sounds like the perfect recipe!

  • Reply Liora- Allthingsloveli.com February 22, 2016 at 10:41 am

    Ah these looks so good! I love that there’s strawberries in them. My parents are South African, and my Gran used to alway make scones for us growing up. Now that I’m gluten free I don’t eat them anymore, but these look like an amazing alternative 🙂
