Double Chocolate Chip Scones Recipe (Gluten-free, Dairy-Free, Egg-Free)

I like to take my girls out for Mommy-Daughter dates when I can.  My five year old, non-allergic daughter’s favorite date is hitting the local tea shop for scones and tea.  Actually, I have coffee and she has milk in a tea cup.  We always bring home extra scones to share with the rest of the non-allergic family.  It always hurts my heart when I don’t have an allergy-free version of a treat to share with Bella.  When I stumbled across this recipe at Family Fresh Cooking, I couldn’t wait to make it for her.  Just as I expected, Bella loves the chocolate treats.

I was pleasantly surprised by how easy these scones are to make. I have never made “regular” scones but I’m pretty sure they are not nearly as nutritious as these.  Coconut flour is high in dietary fiber and protein.   Oats are also a great source of fiber and are known to help reduce high blood pressure and lower cholesterol.  The banana, used as a binder in this recipe, is a great source of potassium, vitamins b and c and more fiber!

This recipe only makes 8 scones so I learned quickly to make two batches.

Dry Ingredients:

Wet Ingredients:

  • 1 Banana
  • 3 ounces Coconut Milk
  • 6 Tbsp Honey
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract (optional)


  • 3/4 cup Allergy-Friendly Chocolate Chips (I use these)


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk dry ingredients.  Add 1/2 cup chocolate chip.
  3. Blend wet ingredients in a blender or food processor.
  4. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix well.
  5. Taste dough and add more sweetener if needed.
  6. Form dough into a ball and press into a 1/2 inch thick pizza shape.
  7. Cut into 8 equal pieces and top with remaining chocolate chips.
  8. Bake 10-12 minutes.  Let cool and sprinkle with powdered sugar before serving.

  1. Yum! I bet these are delicious!

  2. These sound amazing! I’ve never used coconut flour before, but it might be worth it to try just for these:)

  3. Bibi says:

    They look delicious. I will pass this to my BFF whose little niece is Celiac and hubs is lactose intolerant….she would love this recipe.

  4. That looks really yummy!

  5. Amanda says:

    These scones looks fantastic! Yum!

  6. Joyti says:

    How lovely of you to make these for your little girl.
    {and as a side note, all restaurants should have a vegetarian and gluten-free and a dairy-free option – given how many people have allergies nowadays}

    • Nancy says:

      Thanks Joyti! Unfortunately or fortunately depending how you look at it, with the rise in food allergies it won’t be long before restaurants offer more options.

  7. Elsa says:

    Actually, this doesn’t look THAT different from a regular scone recipe, so I’m sure they taste similar. We don’t have allergies, so I’ve never had to research this before, but I’m so amazed at the different ways people can make food to accommodate their allergies. This is why I love cooking, the creativity is endless. These look yummy and I really want to try baking with coconut flour now.

    • Nancy says:

      Coconut flour is wonderful but it is tricky to substitute with. Make sure you find a recipe that actually calls for coconut flour. I know a good scones recipe. 🙂

  8. Swathi says:

    looks awesome, ultimate recipe for chocolate lovers. Thanks for sharing with Hearth and soul hop.

  9. This is great! I just started a dairy-free trial period with my 2-year-old daughter, Katie, to see if it clears up some of her congestion/runny nose issues, and we’ve been missing a lot of our chocolate treats!
    Thanks! 😉

  10. Georgia says:

    I love the fact that this blog exists!!!! Both of my kids have issues with dairy. Not a true allergy, but as babies I had to avoid all soy and dairy products in order to BF and they both have to avoid dairy products because it gives them a rash and the runs and that is NO FUN :0) Anyway thank you so much for posting these recipes.

    Btw you should link this up to our new meme Give Back Thursdays. I would feel honored to have you on my site!!

    what a tasty treat with a spot of tea would be delicious come see me at

  12. Wow! A good friend’s daughter is allergic to milk and wheat and I am always looking for things she can enjoy when they come over. We have a regular tea and book club and her toddler will be there and I will have something for her to try!

  13. kristin says:

    This looks delicious! My father is allergic to lactose and it is difficult finding foods that he can eat. I will pass this along to him.

    This looks wonderful. I absolutely understand what you mean about feeling bad about your younger daughter not being able to eat things your older daughter can. Starting to go through that right now with my two girls. Love this and am definitely going to try it! BTW, found you through Slightly Indulgent Tuesdays.

  16. These look amazing, and I do make regular scones. I’ll have to try this for our daughter who would love to see this recipe! Also, that is a beautiful plate they are photographed on!!

    These looks fantastic! I know finding this recipe was a blessing for you to be able to share with Bella. I’ve been seeing coconut flour used around the blogosphere; but, I haven’t tried it yet. Your recipe has sealed the deal. I’m going to get some and give these a try. Thanks!

  21. ellen says:

    i love that these are allergen free, yet still contain really simple ingredients! do the scones come out fluffy or dense?

  22. Miz Helen says:

    I take my daughters on dates too! I have been taking my six year old since she was three and I just took my two year old for the first time. It is so much fun! I can’t wait to try these out! Maybe I will make them and take both of my daughters on a fancy picnic date to an outdoor performance of classical music. 🙂
    P.S. I’m Theophanie of Our Jubilant Nest, I was featured in today’s tea party too. I am so glad I found my way over here!

    • Nancy says:

      Hi Theophanie! Thanks for introducing yourself. I am thrilled to be featured and meet some new blogs. I hope you enjoy the scones.

  30. mmm…these look divine…I will be trying these, thank you!

  31. Just made these using 1/2 teff flour, 1/3 oat and they were lovely…not too sweet! I love all the added goodness of coconut flour many recipes with it are grain free and loaded with eggs…this is a much better use of it for our family! I have a proposition for you too…will be in touch soon about it!

  32. I made these yesterday. They were delicious! :o)

  33. Darcie says:

    Thanks for the recipe! I was needing a gluten free scone that wasn’t as crumbly as my previous attempts. All my other ones turned to sand in my 5yo boy’s hands. Making it with the banana and honey turned out perfectly. I actually adapted it to be non-chocolate, with frozen blueberries instead. Yum!

    • Nancy says:

      I’m so glad they worked for you. I haven’t experimented with different flavors. I’ll have to try your recipe! Thanks for leaving a comment. 🙂

  34. […] was having trouble with crumbly texture of scones, but then I revisited a Top 8 Free Chocolate Scone recipe online. This one used a banana and a lower oven temp. But I’d just had chocolate […]
