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.
