Gluten Free Sour Cream Chocolate Chip Scones

Whenever I am on the hunt for a gluten free treat, I always gravitate towards a gluten free scone! I love the flavor you can pack into a little scone and wide variety of flavor combinations you can create (see my Blueberry Lemon Scone recipe for more inspo)! My Gluten Free Sour Cream Chocolate Chip Scones are flaky but not dry. There is a richness to them from the sour cream and butter, but it doesnt stop you from going back for seconds!

Prep Time: 20  minutes   Cook Time: 25  minutes Total Time: 45 minutes 


2 cups  Gluten Free All Purpose Flour

1 tsp Xanthan Gum

2 tsp Baking Powder

1 tsp Salt

1 stick of butter, cold

1 Egg

¼ cup Brown Sugar

1 tsp Vanilla

1 cup Sour Cream

½ cup Mini Chocolate Chips

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine gluten free all-purpose flour, xanthan gum, baking powder, and salt. 

  2. Cube the stick of butter and cut it into the flour mixture. You can use two forks or a pastry dough blender. Combine until the mixture becomes crumbly. Then mix in the mini chocolate chips.

  3. In a separate bowl whisk together the egg, brown sugar, vanilla, and sour cream. 

  4. Fold your wet ingredients into your dry ingredients until it starts to come together. Don’t be alarmed if it is still a little crumbly.

  5. Dust your counter and the dough with some flour and lightly push the dough together, being careful to not to overwork the dough. If you spend too much time forming the dough, the butter will melt.

  6. Shape the dough into a circle about 8-9inches across & an inch thick. Cut into 8 even triangles and carefully transfer to your pan. If you want a mini scone, cut the triangles in half. 

  7. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the edges start to turn golden brown.
