Blueberry Lemon Scones


blueberry lemon scones - recipe on

How beautiful are these blueberry lemon scones? Kelly of The Nourishing Home sent me an advanced copy of her new cookbook Everyday Grain-Free Baking and the moment I saw this recipe, I knew I wanted to share it with my readers. I absolutely love scones, especially with a cup of buttered chai on a lazy morning. I’m currently on a sugar detox this month, so while I dream about these sweet scones, I’m hoping you will actually make and enjoy them. Just because I can’t have sweets this month doesn’t mean I want to deprive those of my readers who can!

This mouthwatering treat is one of more than 100 grain-free, dairy-free and starch-free recipes in Kelly’s new book. She has included recipes for traditional baked good favorites, step-by-step instructions, beautiful photos and helpful tips to make grain-free baking a smooth process. If you’re looking for a great resource on baked goods, then this is the book for you. There are savory and sweet recipes for all sorts of baked goods including breads, muffins, tarts, cakes, pancakes and more.

Some of the recipes that I can’t wait to try: strawberry shortcake muffins, french toast, Boston cream pie, lemonade sunshine cake, and I’m pretty sure this list could go on for quite awhile. Thankfully February is almost here so I’ll be able to make as many sweets as I want… and eat them in moderation of course. 😉

Servings 8 scones



  • In a food processor, combine the almond flour, baking soda, and salt. Pulse in the cold butter (or palm shortening) until it’s well incorporated. If you don’t have a food processor, use a pastry cutter to cut the butter (or shortening) into the dry ingredients.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, coconut milk, lemon juice, zest, and honey until well combined.
  • Using a spoon, stir the dry mixture into the wet mixture until thoroughly combined. Then fold in the blueberries. Place dough in fridge to cool about 10–15 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F while dough is chilling. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside. Sprinkle your work surface with a handful of blanched almond flour. Melt a teaspoon of butter (or coconut oil) for brushing the tops of the scones.
  • Once dough is chilled, gather it together in a ball and place floured surface. Shape the dough into a 6x6-inch square, then cut it in half twice to form 4 small squares. Next, cut each of the 4 small squares in half diagonally to form 8 small triangles.
  • Brush the tops of the scones with melted butter (or coconut oil). Sprinkle tops with a little bit of coconut crystals or maple sugar, if desired.
  • Using a spatula, gently place each scone onto the prepared baking sheet. Bake about 15–18 minutes, until scones are light golden brown along the edges. Serve warm with your favorite herbal or green tea.

    Hello Ashley, I just discovered your website today. 🙂 Today is my Day 7 of the Paleo Lifestyle (after 2+ years of Dairy & Gluten free), and I feel great! I began eating this way to see positive change in regards to my autoimmune issues (tummy, joint, skin issues, etc.) I was excited to see you and your beautiful recipes! I am 21, so I am glad to be starting on this now rather than later. 😉 Glad to have virtually “met” you!

    BTW, can coconut oil be substituted for the butter in this scone recipe?

    Thanks! -Catherine

      Catherine, so happy you’re feeling great!! And I’m glad you found my website 🙂 Hope you will let me know how any recipes turn out for you. I’m sure coconut oil will work as a sub, enjoy!

    Any particular reason why dried blueberries are used here? There’s just always so much sugar added to dried fruit, I’m wondering why you couldn’t just use fresh blueberries?

    • My Heart Beets says

      Hi Debra, this is a book review and so I can’t speak as to why the author used dried over fresh, but you should be able to find dried blueberries at your local health food grocery store (no sugar added). I would think that fresh blueberries would also work just fine. If you try, please let us know!
