Healthy Double Chocolate Gluten-Free Scones with Pistachios

Chocolate gluten-free scones dipped in decadent chocolate and topped with lightly salted pistachios for a sweet and salty treat!

These deliciously simple gluten-free scones are made refined sugar-free for a crumbly, cakey, chocolatey breakfast! Loaded with crunch pistachios. SO YUMMY you won’t be able to have just one.

These scones are super simple to make. I just tossed all the ingredients into a food processor and blitz the ingredients together until a dough formed. Removed the dough and created a round mound. Cut the mound into triangles and baked. Easy peasy!


I realized I hadn’t posted a scone recipe in forever. I think it’s been years since I made gluten-free scones for the blog. If I had it my way I would be baking cookie dough all day. Like this cookie dough recipe here.

I couldn’t decided what flavor to make my scones so I defaulted to chocolate (duh) and added some pistachios for color and crunch. All good things; this flavor combo is a must try.

I did a lot of testing for these scones and I’ve come to the conclusion that butter is needed to make a perfect scone. But I know some of you don’t like to use butter in your recipes so I continued testing with different types of butter: vegan butter, ghee, light butter, olive oil butter. The good news is they all work! Yay!

Are you guys wondering yet why I have two different backgrounds for these scones? Well the answer isn’t as exciting as I would like it to be. I literally just wanted to see how the pink would contrast with the scones. Do you like it? It’s a nice little change from my traditional white wood background.

Healthy Double Chocolate Gluten-Free Scones with Pistachios

Double chocolate gluten-free scones dipped in decadent chocolate and topped with lightly salted pistachios for a sweet and salty treat!

Ingredients

  • 3/4 c gluten-free flour
  • 32g chocolate protein, vegan if necessary PEScience 30% code PBCHOCO
  • 3 tbsp unsweetened cocao powder
  • 4-5 tbsp cold almond milk
  • 3 tbsp cold vegan butter or butter of choice *see notes
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 packets stevia
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/4 c roasted & lightly salted pistachios
  • half of a sugar-free dark chocolate bar (50g)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F and prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Place the flour, protein, cocao powder, salt and baking powder into a food processor along with the cold butter and vanilla. Pulse 2 or 3 times until ingredients are incorporated. Add in 4 tablespoons of the cold milk and continue pulsing until a dough forms. If dough is too dry to come together add another tablespoon of milk. This will vary depending on the brand of protein. Add in the pistachios and pulse just until incorporated.

  4. Melt chocolate in a shallow microwave safe bowl. Dip the tops of each scone into the chocolate. Sprinkle with more pistachios if desired. Place in the fridge to chill until chocolate has set. Serve.

Notes

vegan butter, real butter, ghee, light butter, olive oil butter and frozen coconut oil all work in this recipe.
