Light & Fluffy Gluten Free Scones!

Light & Fluffy Gluten Free Scones! - Quirky Cooking

These scones are for those of you who are gluten-free and really missing light, fluffy scones! For a gluten-free, dairy-free treat, use the macadamia oil option, and top them with some naturally sweetened jam (takes 8 mins to make, no excuses!) and some cashew cream, for a delicious afternoon tea treat. I’ve tried this recipe with many different GF flour mixes, and have found that the Orgran SR flour has the lightest and best results. Others will be heavier and crumbly. As is usual with gluten-free baking, these are best eaten on the same day.

Enjoy! xx

300g Orgran® gluten free self-raising flour

60g butter or macadamia oil

1/2 tsp fine sea salt

2 eggs

150g coconut milk (recipe here)


1. Preheat oven to 200°. Line a baking tray with baking paper, or sprinkle with flour.

2. Place flour, butter or oil and salt into a Thermomix bowl and mix 6 sec/speed 6.

3. Add eggs and milk and mix 10 sec/speed 5, using a spatula to help the mixture combine. Do not overmix.

4. Drop mixture by rounded tablespoonfuls onto a baking tray, placing close together so scones are touching.

5. Cook at 200° for approx. 15 mins, or until lightly browned and cooked through.

    I have never heard of the Orgran flour you are using in this recipe. Is it wheat free? And where is it available to purchase. Thanks

  2. Karen says:

    Hi, Would love to make this but cant have nut oils do you think olive oil
    would work ? They are just for me to eat so Im not too worried about the texture and look.
    Thanks so much

    • QuirkyJo says:

      Hi there Karen , Maybe try Avocado oil, sunflower oil, or butter or ghee if not dairy intolerant. 🙂

  3. Alison says:

    Yum these turn out quite nice
    I used cow milk and butter as an alternative and Aldi flour which I had handy
    I will be making them again.

  4. Sarah says:

    Hi Was wondering if I could just use Lactose free milk instead of coconut milk? I have coeliac and lactose intolerant in our family…. But they are not keen on coconut milk. Thank you and I love following you and your great recipes ????

        Hi just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a few of the images
        aren’t loading properly. I’mnot sure why but I think its a linking issue.
        I’ve tried itt in two different browsers and both show
        the same outcome.

  5. Stephanie says:

    Hey Jo they sound and look great. How many does it make? Could you add some chopped dates or sultanas or a sprinkling of parmesan cheese?

  6. Orla says:

    Can you use Chi-seed egg instead of eggs? Il be using Ghee butter or avocado oil instead of butter, do you think this willwork?

  7. Flick says:

    Just tried these now I’m kicking myself I didn’t do it earlier, YUM! Hubby couldn’t tell they weren’t regular scones, so definitely bonus points. Off to eat, I mean make more now.

  8. Susan says:

    These are so good!!! I replaced 100g of the flour with buckwheat and an extra teaspoon of baking powder and they turned out perfectly. Kids gobbled them up and my gluten-loving husband ate 3 😀 Will definitely be making them again!

  9. Caroline says:

    Can you please advise a suitable replacement for the eggs? I am finding that chia gel is changing the consistency too much.

  10. Anna says:

    What a great recipe! I have baked these twice this week for Father’s Day breakfast at preschool. I also swapped out 100g of the flour for buckwheat and I had to make them egg free for one of the schools and they were amazing egg free as well.
    Thanks Jo

    When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now
    each time a comment is added I get several

      So sorry, you’ll need to turn that off yourself in the emails I think – have a look at the bottom of one of the emails you receive and there should be an unsubscribe from comments link.

  12. Belinda says:

    I can’t believe ahoy quick and easy these are to make! It took me 5 mins to make them (that in licked cleaning up!) then 15 to cook. I used the Aldi gf self raising & butter and got perfect results 🙂

  13. Danica says:

    These look great for lunchboxes! Any suggestions for the best milk substitute to try? My son is allergic to dairy and coconut…..he can have rice, soy, almond, and cashew though.

  14. Mic_Huelin says:

    They were the best gf scones I’ve ever made – delicious with strawberry jam and whipped cream! Thank-you so much for sharing this wonderful recipe ????

  15. Erika says:

    Thanks for the great recipe! I just wanted to share that I made these with flaxseed eggs as I was out of eggs and it worked a great! Still great fluffy consistency and not at all crumbly, and added bonus of extra fibre ????. So this recipe could easily be vegan if using the macadamia oil.
    (Replacement for one egg= 1 tablespoon flaxseed meal with 3 tablespoons water, mixed and left for 15 mins to gel up)
    Thanks again!

  16. Amelia says:

    I only have all purpose gluten free flour what is it I put in to make it rise? Also how much for this recipe?

  17. Megs says:

    Just for anyone asking I made these using the Coles brand SR Flour and it worked just as well as the Orgran brand which i unfortunately ran out of. I do use dairy though so butter and cows milk so can’t vouch for the original version. These are amazing jo I crave scones and find a lot of the gluten free products too stale tasting these are delicious light and fluffy so thank you for the recipe xxx

  18. Janelle says:

    Best scones I’ve ever had. These were so light and delicious warm from the oven. I used the Woolies gf flour and Ayam coconut milk. Thank you Jo

  19. Joanne says:

    Sooo grateful for this recipe! I’ve tried for years with very little success to make fluffy gluten free scones! I made these using Aldi self raising gf flour and it worked beautifully! They didn’t brown very much but the flavour was lovely and buttery and the texture lovely and fluffy! So happy! The only change I will make is to make them bigger next time. Thank you so much for the post!

  20. Anne says:

    My boys love these, I have been searching for a GF scone receipe for a while now. I have made them using the organ sr flour but I ran our recently and made them with Woolies GF SR flour, Vitasoy Unsweetened Coconut Milk and Nuttlex spread and they come out beautifully. Lovely and fluffy we don’t have leftovers in our house.


    Really good scones! I made the coconut milk too and it was easy. They turned out just like the image. Thank you so much!

      Is there an unsubscribe link at the bottom of the email? I’m not really sure what’s happening. Sorry about that!

  23. Sally Moogan says:

    I’m grain free and nut Free paleo, can I use potato starch or arrowroot flour to make these?

  24. Christeen says:

    Oh wow , you have completely nailed it with these scones , I followed the recipe exactly as written and they are absolutely delicious, Thank you so much for sharing 🙂

  25. Amy says:

    The easiest, fluffiest, delicious GF scones ever!! Thanks for the recipe 🙂

    Question, if I double the recipe still it work?

  26. Lorraine says:

    This is a great recipe and lives up to the name of being fluffy. I’ve used different brands of GF flour with success. I often use 1 egg and 2 egg whites. I’ve found using powdered coconut milk gives a lovely crunchy texture to the outside. Delicious!
