Gluten Free Scottish Oat Scones

These simple gluten free scones have a rich buttery taste with a great crumb. So perfect for weekend breakfasts or grab-and-go weekday mornings. Easily adapts to non-gluten free.
Servings 8 scones


  • 1 1/2 cups 195g gluten free all purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 cups 120g gluten free old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar or coconut sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins


  • Preheat your oven to 450 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, oats, baking powder, salt, xanthan gum and sugar. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, melt the butter in the microwave for about 45 seconds. Whisk in the milk, apple cider vinegar and egg until combined.
  • Pour the wet ingredients over the flour mixture and stir just until combined. Add in the raisins and mix until distributed.
  • Dump the dough onto a floured surface. Work the dough into a round disc that measures about 6 inches across and is 3/4 of an inch tall. With a sharp knife, cut through the disc into 8 wedges. Place the wedges on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden on top.


To create traditional, non-gluten free scones, use all-purpose flour and omit the xanthan gum.
When using oats, be sure they are labeled "gluten free" if you are sensitive to gluten.
