Gluten Free Scones

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.

    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

    • Jo Whitton says:

      Yes, it’s wheat free, and you can get it at most health food stores or the health section in the grocery store. (In Australia – are you in Australia?)

    • Tammy says:

      Orgran can be bought at Coles and Woolies in the health food sections its GF

    • Sarana says:

      Orgran is simply the brand name. I’m sure any brand of Gluten Free self raising flour would work just as well.

      • QuirkyJo says:

        I actually tried a few different brands – this is not a sponsored post, I just found Orgran to work the best because of the blend of flours they use – it’s a lighter mix than more gf flour mixes.

    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

  4. 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.

  5. 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 ????

  6. Tiffany says:

    I don’t have a thermomix, any ideas on how to make these without one??


  7. 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?

  8. Lisa says:

    Can you use another type of milk like almond or rice?

  9. Gemma says:

    can you use any gluten free self raising flour? Don’t think we can get orgran here

  10. Kmmac7 says:

    Can you use normal milk if you’re not dairy intolerant?

  11. jessie says:


    ingredient wise, is the orgran bran okay with no preservatives?

  12. Sophie says:

    Would this recipe work to make into scrolls?

  13. Chloe says:

    What could the egg be replaced with in this recipe?

  14. 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?

  15. 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.

  16. 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!

  17. Caroline says:

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

  18. 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
    emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me
    from that service? Thanks!

    • QuirkyJo says:

      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.

  20. Ang says:

    How many does this make?

  21. 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 🙂

  22. 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.

  23. 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 😘

  24. Natale says:

    Great recipe. I agree that Organ gives a better result.

  25. 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!

  26. 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?

  27. Amy says:

    I don’t wish to make my own coconut milk, should I use canned or long life? Thanks in advance x

  28. 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

  29. 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

  30. Haley says:

    Hi Jo,
    Do you know if these scones can be frozen?
    Thanks so much for the recipe!

  31. 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!

  32. 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!
