Finally making a sweet scone recipe 🙂 . These gluten free coconut, date, and pecan scones are perfect with a cup of coffee or tea.
I found some sweet looking dates in our grocery store and I thought these would work well with coconut and pecans.
For this recipe, I used the Bob’s Red Mill’s new 1 to 1 gluten free flour blend that I picked up at my local Costco. I had wanted to try it out in this scone recipe. This flour blend is a lot lighter with more starch, so these scones are not only flaky, but lighter in texture as well.
These scones are so worth it….(I highly suggest you make a double batch, the whole family is going to devour them.)
To make the scones, use a pastry blender to cut the butter into the dry ingredients.
Your dough will look like this before you add the wet ingredients.
Spread the dough out on parchment paper and make cuts in the dough. Once it is baked you just need to cut it again along those same lines.
Super flaky and full of dates and pecans.

Gluten Free Coconut, Date, and Pecan Scones
- 2 cups Bob's Red Mill 1 to 1 Gluten Free Flour Blend (*Note, my flour blend has xanthan gum included. If yours doesn't, add 1 teaspoon.)
- 1/2 cup sugar use 1/4 if you use sweetened coconut.
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 stick butter cold
- 2 large eggs
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup shredded coconut
- 1/2 cup roasted pecans
- 1/2 cup chopped dates
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl add all dry ingredients.
Whisk to blend.
Add butter in chunks to the flour.
Using a pastry blender, cut butter into the dough until the flour mixture is grainy.
Add wet ingredients and mix ins and stir to blend.
Put a piece of parchment paper onto a cookie sheet.
Sprinkle a little flour on top of the dough and shape it to a round flattened circle about 2 inched tall.
Use a sharp knife to cut slices into the dough (as shown in above photograph.)
Bake for 20-25 minutes until done.
When scones are cooled down, use a knife along cut marks.
