23 Splendid Paleo Scones Recipes
Sometimes life just calls for a batch of scones to be made.
That’s why I’ve gathered this list of 23 delicious Paleo scones recipes here, just for you guys…I’ve got:
- Paleo scones made with coconut flour,
- Paleo scones made with coconut and almond flour,
- Paleo scones made with just almond flour,
- Paleo scones made a mix of Paleo flours, including tapioca flour.
These different Paleo flours yield different results when baking. For example, coconut flour can absorb a lot of moisture, so the baked goods can end up a little drier than if you were to use almond flour and so you’ll need to adjust by adding more eggs.
Baking with Paleo and gluten-free ingredients isn’t just a straight-forward swap from your regular flour to Paleo flours, and that’s why it’s useful to follow these Paleo scones recipes instead of creating your own.
And boy do we have some really yummy scones recipes in this list. From sweet pumpkin scones with cinnamon glaze to mango butter scones, there are scone recipes for every season.
Here are just a few of the Paleo Scones Recipes we’ve included:
- Starbucks Copycat Pumpkin Scones
- Sweet Plantain Drop Biscuits
- Paleo Frosted Cherry Scones
- Paleo Mango Scones
- Wild Blueberry Choc Chip Scones
- Maple Bacon Scones
- Apple Ginger and Spice Scones
- Orange Scones

Paleo Scones Made With Coconut Flour
– Unconventional Baker
Ingredients: pumpkin puree, coconut oil, coconut butter, maple syrup, vanilla extract, salt, cinnamon, cloves, coconut flour, tapioca starch, coconut milk.
Starbucks treats may be yummy, but they definitely aren’t Paleo-friendly. This copycat recipe for pumpkin scones brings all the yum and none of the yuk! Pumpkin flavors are perfect for Fall, but that doesn’t mean you couldn’t make them at any time of year. These scones are also gluten-free and vegan too, so pretty much anyone can enjoy them.
Ingredients: brown plantains, maple syrup, coconut oil, eggs, coconut milk, coconut flour, cinnamon, baking powder, salt.
These plantain drop biscuits are more reminiscent of traditional English scones which are enjoyed with cream teas. Using very ripe “brown” plantains will give an extra sweet flavor to your scones, but if this isn’t sufficient, maple syrup can always be added. Enjoy this recipe fresh from the oven with a little butter or ghee spread.

Ingredients: coconut flour, coconut sugar, arrowroot flour, baking soda, cream of tartar, sea salt, unsweetened applesauce, almond extract, gelatin egg, apple cider vinegar, dried cherries, cherry juice, beetroot powder, coconut butter, coconut oil.
If you love cherries then you will want to try out this recipe. Lightly crispy on the outside with an almost, buttery smooth texture to the middle – what’s not to love?! These would make a great offering at a party or just as a midweek treat for the family. You could enjoy one of these for breakfast if you were on the go.
– Whole Life, Full Soul
Ingredients: organic gala apples, water, apple puree, TigerNut flour, coconut flour, arrowroot flour, organic baking lavender, cinnamon, baking soda, sea salt, apple cider vinegar, vanilla, coconut oil, palm shortening.
Tiger nuts aren’t actually nuts, they are tubers which are filled with nutrients and prebiotic fibers. With heaps of iron and potassium, this scone recipe is a different way to ingest these nutrients and an enjoyable one at that.
– Frisky Lemon
Ingredients: coconut flour, almond flour, unsweetened shredded coconut, baking powder, cinnamon, sea salt, butter (omit) or ghee, raw honey, coconut milk.
As we all know, coconut has many health benefits as well as many uses in day to day life. This scone recipe celebrates coconut in all its glory and creates yummy, sweet scones which are perfect for a breakfast treat for the one you love (or yourself to be honest… I won’t tell).

Ingredients: mango, water, vanilla extract, mango butter (recipe included), coconut flour, baking powder, sea salt, egg yolk, egg white, honey, coconut cream, ground cinnamon, cardamom.
I always find mango recipes great as the unique flavor of this fruit can be used for so many types of food. These scones combine mango and cinnamon flavors, which are surprisingly complementary on the palate. You will want to use nice, ripe, smooth fleshed mangoes for this recipe as fibrous ones will be far too much of a pain to work with.
– The Movement Menu
Ingredients: gluten-free flour, coconut sugar, baking powder, sea salt, ground cardamom, orange zest, ghee or grassfed butter (omit), orange juice, coconut milk, egg, water, coconut cream, maple syrup or raw honey, ginger powder, vanilla extract.
This recipe was born out of an “oops” recipe, but serendipity can often give us new ideas and in the food world; tasty results. If you want to create more of a scone, then just don’t roll the pastry as thin before baking. Orange and cardamom go so well together creating a zingy heat which is nicely complemented by the ginger whipped coconut cream.
Paleo Scones Made With Almond Flour
– Fed and Fit
Ingredients: almond flour, arrowroot, sea salt, baking soda, fresh cranberries, fresh orange zest, orange juice, coconut oil, maple syrup, vanilla extract, egg.
If you have a fondness for jam, then these scones will give you that fix with no added sugar – the cranberries transform in the oven to a sweeter more jammy texture. Orange adds a nice zest to this recipe and makes the perfect breakfast treat which is definitely worth waking up for!
– All Day I Dream About Food
Ingredients: almond flour, swerve sweetener, coconut flour, baking powder, salt, pecans, pumpkin puree, eggs, butter (omit) or ghee, pumpkin spice extract or pumpkin pie spice.
These low carb scones would be the perfect treat for the adults while the kids are out trick or treating on Halloween. Pumpkin is always a winner in baking, especially when it’s combined with cinnamon. The addition of pecans to these scones makes for an added crunch in these buttery textured scones.
– Ditch The Wheat

Ingredients: almond flour, baking soda, salt, mini sugar-free chocolate chips, eggs, raw honey, butter (omit) or ghee, wild blueberries.
These blueberry and choc chip scones make a great morning snack to send your kids off to school with or to grab on the way out of the door to get to work. You don’t have to include chocolate chips if you prefer to steer away from chocolate, they will work just as well with simple blueberries.

Ingredients: almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda, pastured eggs, bacon fat, maple syrup, coconut milk, pastured bacon, coconut cream, maple syrup, vanilla extract, sea salt.
Sweet and salty flavors are a great way to enjoy scones and these maple bacon goodies will not disappoint. Rustle these up for breakfast at the weekend and make everyone’s morning. You could enjoy these as they are, or add some of the glaze that Hannah created for this recipe.
– Low Carb Maven
Ingredients: almond flour, erythritol, ground ginger, salt, baking soda, lemon zest, coconut milk, eggs, lemon juice, vanilla, stevia glycerite, coconut butter, swerve or powdered erythritol, water, coconut oil, lemon extract.
If you find yourself missing crunchy, crumbly textures since starting your Paleo journey, then these scones are sure to satisfy your cravings. Lemon and ginger is a really simple but refreshing combination of flavors and if you like to top your scones, try adding Paleo-friendly blueberry jam.
– Wholesome Yum
Ingredients: almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, sea salt, unsweetened almond milk, egg, vanilla extract, coconut oil, erythritol or any granular sweetener, blueberries.
Blueberries are one of those berries that just works in baked goods. They are sweet but with a mild sharpness which cuts through any denseness. This recipe is really similar to making low carb muffins, just with a little difference in the ratio of ingredients.
– Ruled Me
Ingredients: sweet lightning winter squash or pumpkin puree cinnamon, garam masala, coconut oil, eggs, vanilla extract, baking powder, almond flour, butter (omit) or ghee, pumpkin pie spice.
These scone cookies will sharp become a household favorite – with the taste of a cookie and texture of a scone. Make sure to squeeze as much of the liquid from the pumpkin puree as possible otherwise you’ll end up with flat biscuits which won’t resemble a scone texture at all.

Ingredients: almond flour, baking soda, fine sea salt, orange zest, dried cranberries, apple juice, eggs, honey, orange extract, fresh lemon juice.
Here is another recipe which mixes the flavors of orange and cranberry. These scones are not too sweet, so make a super breakfast or healthy addition to an afternoon cup of tea or coffee. The orange zest adds the perfect hint of orange flavor, but the cranberries will be the main flavor you get with these scones. Use less cranberries if you prefer.
– The Low Carb Diet
Ingredients: almond flour, lemon zest, lemon juice, sweetener, baking powder, baking soda, salt, vanilla, butter (omit) or ghee, egg.
This recipe has the perfect ratio of lemon juice and zest to get the flavor just right. With a soft, buttery middle and crunchy crisp edging, these scones give you everything you would want from a snack. This is a great recipe base for you to experiment with your own flavors and fillings.

Ingredients: almond flour, egg, baking powder, liquid stevia drops, vanilla extract, lemon juice, salt, cacao butter, vanilla bean pod, stevia or honey.
One of the most traditional flavors in baking, vanilla, has been utilised really well to create these simple but yummy scones. This is another Starbucks copycat recipe, but of course, with a healthy twist. These scones are relatively dense, but have the crumbliness you expect from a scone.
– The Urban Poser
Ingredients: almond flour, sea salt, baking soda, cinnamon, allspice, tart apples, honey, grated ginger, apple cider vinegar, egg.

These savory biscuits are similar to English scones – with a bit of height so you can cut them in two and add your favorite spread. Traditionally, Southern-style biscuits are enjoyed warm with anything from breakfast to fried chicken, so this versatile recipe could be one to try if you feel you need something extra with your meal.

These scones from Kelly at A Girl Worth Saving are a great recipe to celebrate the arrival of spring or summer, with the fruity taste of orange. The orange honey butter topping can be skipped if you prefer to enjoy your scones as is. This is another recipe which could be adapted with your own choice of flavors.
