Pecan Scones {Gluten-Free}

Who doesn’t love scones? I sure do! While everyone was making banana bread in 2020, I was working on my gluten-free scone recipe game. Specifically my gluten-free pecan scones! I found a combo of gluten-free flours works best. I also determined that using gluten-free flour creates nice light and fluffy scone! Even better. 

What is the best part about whipping up this gluten-free scone recipe? It’s that scones can be enjoyed any time of the day of course! They make such a great snack, breakfast, or even dessert. I personally love these pecan scones in the afternoon with some fresh berries. The Wildly Organic Pecans in this recipe add a nice little crunch to a lightly sweetened treat! My husband on the other hand prefers them with coffee. He knows how to live.

When it comes to ingredients I love baking with Wildly Organic Himalayan Pink Salt. It really elevates the flavor of baked goods. 

I’m also a big fan of nuts. When I can add walnuts or pecans to a recipe, I sure do. Whether it’s a salad, brownie, or this Pecan Scone Recipe, I love the added crunch and salty goodness. This time around I opted for Wildly Organic’s Raw, Soaked and Dried, Certified Organic PecansGrown on a small family pecan farm in Texas, they are awarded with the highest possible quality grade. Wildly Organic soaks the nuts before dehydrating them at low temperature to break down the phytic acid and enzyme inhibitors that can affect the absorption of nutrients. Trust me, when I say, you’ve never had raw pecans as good as these! 

Want to take these Pecan Scones to the next level or if you’re a salty and sweet person. Try adding in 1/4 cup of Wildly Organic Goji Berries, Coconut Flakes, or Cacao Nibs

Make sure to add this recipe to your next weekend meal plan.
