If you haven’t noticed yet, I love scones! They are like a cross between a muffin and a cookie.
Scones are great for breakfast, brunch, a snack or even dessert. I enjoy serving them with soup. A sweet scone is a great contrast to salty soup. Plus it helps fill you up and get a good balance of carbohydrates, protein and fat in your meal.
The nice thing about these blueberry scones is that they are gluten, dairy and nut free. They can also be made egg free.
My daughter raved about these scones. She said they are like blueberry cookies.
This is another great way to use up some of your fresh blueberries. Or you can make them in the winter with your frozen stash.
Don’t think you have time to make scones for breakfast? Prepare the dough the night before and chill it over night. In the morning simply put the scones in the oven. By the time you get yourself ready you’ll have fresh scones. You can even freeze the dough for later.
Another option is to bake the scones when you have time and then freeze them for later. Scones from the freezer make an easy breakfast on a school morning.
Serve a batch of blueberry scones with scrambled eggs, bacon, soup or cheese (that’s what I usually do for breakfast). You really can’t go wrong.

I just read this recipe how come there is no dancing under a tree during a full moon to make this most gluten free recipes you need to be a chemist or a witch and the nutritional value is not worth eating it. I also like that you use different flours.
I like to keep things as simple as possible, Karen. No gums, no fillers, no weird stuff.
Thank you very much for this recipe. It was fantastic, though my batter was dark purple from the frozen blueberries. I read the solution would be to rinse them 3x and thoroughly dry. I will be trying that next time. I took them out after 30 minutes instead of 35 because I got antsy about them being brown already. I tasted them and they were delicious, even though they were overdone in my oven, which my separate thermometer says runs 25 degrees F cooler than displayed, so technically I was only baking at 350. I will listen to my spidey sense and take them out much sooner next time.
I love how versatile these are. Trying them with frozen bloobs this week! 🙂
