Today I am hosting the girls for a pre-holiday get together. We try to do this every few months to catch up, and just celebrate with some “togetherness time.” It is like our calm before the storm…or should I say calm before the holiday madness?
I made some of my popular Gluten-Free Maple Pecan Scones to serve with Starbucks® Holiday Blend coffee. Good coffee is a must for this time together!! I have the French press loaded up and ready to go!
And for my bacon lovers, these Gluten-Free Maple Bacon Donuts are also delicious!
Each year Starbucks® Holiday Blend coffee varies a little bit in its flavors. This year’s holiday blend includes aged Sumatra beans. The coffee has flavors of cedary-spice paired with holiday flavors including cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves.
You can serve this coffee with cream, milk, or any nondairy milk and it will taste delicious. I prefer my coffee black so I can taste the subtleties of the coffee.

Ways to Make Starbucks® Ground Coffee:
There are lots of ways to brew this holiday blend coffee. Mr. Fearless Dining and I personally like to use a French press because it really brings the flavors of this coffee out. You can also brew coffee:
- French Press
- In a coffee maker
- As a pour over
(Click on the image below to buy this coffee directly from the picture. How cool is that??)
Are you ready to see how easy these scones are to make?
First, add the dry ingredients and cold butter. Use a pastry blender to cut the butter into the dry ingredients. The dough will be grainy when you are done.
Add the cooked and chopped bacon and pecans. Mix and then add all of the wet ingredients into the bowl. Mix well.
*Tip* To make this easy maple scone recipe nut free, just omit the pecans
The gluten-free scone batter will be thick as shown above. You can see the bacon chunks in the batter.
Press the scone batter into a scone pan and bake. These easy Gluten-Free Maple Bacon Scones are almost ready!
Next, we need to make the maple glaze for these Gluten-Free Bacon Scones.
Mix the powdered sugar and maple syrup.
Mix the glaze. (Mix carefully so the powdered sugar doesn’t go flying!)
Drizzle the maple glaze onto the scones.
Gluten-Free Maple Bacon Scones recipe
- 2 cups gluten free flour blend
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 8 tablespoons butter, cold
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 1/4 cup chopped cooked bacon
- 1/4 cup chopped pecans
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar (glaze)
- 2-3 tablespoons maple syrup
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, add flour, sugar, and salt. Whisk to blend.
Add chunks of cold butter. Use a pastry blender to chop up all of the butter. Your dough will be grainy. (You can also use a food processor to do this.)
In a small bowl, add eggs and milk. Add to scone dough with the chopped cooked bacon and pecans.
Grease a scone pan and add batter to each section and bake for 22-25 minutes.
Remove scones from the oven. Take out of the scone pan and allow to cool on a cooling rack.
In a bowl, add powdered sugar and maple syrup. When the scones are cool, dip one side into the glaze and put back on the rack until the glaze hardens.
