Scones are a versatile biscuit like cake that are plain in its original version and usually dressed up with a spread on them. However, they can be turned into anything you would like them too. A gluten free cheese scone is the perfect side for a meal and one of my favorite ways to make a savory scone recipe.

How can Gluten Free Cheese Scones be dairy free? 

Nowadays there are many brands to choose from for vegan, lactose free, and dairy free cheeses. Go Veggie is my go-to for shredded style cheese and cream cheese. The texture and flavor are amazing! I love how they are easy to find at many of my local stores and very affordable for a vegan option. They make these gluten free cheese scones so delicious you would never know that they are dairy free.

How to make gluten free scones soft and spongy…

When making  gluten and dairy free scones you might be concerned of how the texture will be. Learning to make gluten free is always a challenge, but then when you also remove the dairy, a disaster can happen easily. There are a few things that can help you succeed with how to make gluten free scones soft and spongy, but still have a crumb to them at the same time.

    1. Your Gluten Free All Purpose Flour matters. They are not all created equal and you can have different outcomes. I only use my My personal Gluten Free All Purpose Flour Blend when baking because it never lets me down. It is simple to make and very inexpensive. You can grab the recipe HERE.
    2. Eggs. They help create a rise and give it the proper texture. If you are vegan you can use egg replacer, but your scone will likely come out a bit dryer and have more crumbs.
    3. Xanthan Gum . I get a lot of questions about Xanthan Gum and if you are new to gluten free baking you are probably scratching your head with this ingredient. Xanthan Gum is a binding agent that keeps your baked items from completely failing apart. Gluten is also a binding agent, and since we are baking gluten free we need to provide the flour with a new binding agent.
    4. Vegan Butter. This gives the gluten and dairy free scones the flaky and tasty finish.

That is how to make gluten free scones soft and spongy!

How do I make these Gluten Free Cheese and Chive Scones?

  1. You will start by blending the Gluten Free All Purpose Flour, salt, sugar, baking powder, and Xanthan Gum in a bowl. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Once the dry ingredients are blended you will add the vegan butter, Go Veggie shreds, chives, eggs, and coconut milk. Mix it all up until it forms a ball.
  3. Drop the ball of dough on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Flatten it out to be 1 inch thick and clean the sides up with a spatula dipped in water. You will then cut it into 8 slices. You will want to dip a sharp knife in water and use it to cut your scones. Spread the scones out to be about 2 inches apart.
  4. Bake for about 20 minutes. You can garnish the gluten and dairy free scones with more cheese and chives if desired.

    I can’t believe these scones not only gluten free but also dairy free – that “cheese” looks so real! I love the pretty speckles of chives inside them. I have to confess, I prefer savoury scones over sweet scones! And I am always on the lookout for another savoury scone recipe. Will definitely keep yours handy for when I have gluten-free company over.

      Thank you Julia! I know that you and your friends will enjoy them.

    The bread lover in me LOVES the sound of these scones. Perfect for brunch, alongside soup and salad..and of course a must with chilis. I much prefer savoury over sweet, so these are right up my alley. Even though I do not have to eat gluten-free, I would devour these for sure.

      Thank you Gloria! We are loving them potato soup.

    These scones are so cute! The perfect snack for tea time! I’ll never seen that vegan cheese before – I’ll have to find that brand. My friend’s a vegan and totally misses cheese.

      Hi Carmy,

      It is in a lot of stores. We enjoy it. 🙂

    I’m not gluten free, thus I’ve never had to make substitutions — and I’ve always been dubious about all the unusual ingredients required to bake gluten free — xanthan gum etc. That said, I had no idea you could turn out a beautiful savory scone that looks exactly like a regular butter and flour variety. These look mouthwateringly tasty. My Aunt has celiac, so I will give this recipe a go and invite her over for dinner — do you have a good vegetable soup recipe too?

  5. 5 stars
    Oooh go veggie cheeses sounds like the cheese lovers solution for dairy free cheese! I’ll definitely pick some up at the store next time I’m cooking for vegan / dairy free friends. Love that these are so accommodating for many diets!

    I’ve never tried making savory scones, but these sound fabulous. I’ve also never tried go veggie cheeses. So, thanks for that introduction. Looking forward to trying new things, especially when they look so good.

    Thanks for all the tips on how to make the best scones! Cheese and chive scones are one of my favorites and I love that I can have them while gluten-free and dairy-free. And the vegan cheese sounds perfect – I can have no cheese and eat it too. 🙂

  8. 5 stars
    Gotta say, I’m impressed! Gluten-free and with a non-dairy cheese, but I never would have guessed from the pictures! I’ve kind of avoided non-dairy cheeses in the past but they’ve come a really long way recently. Definitely getting to the point that it’s worth trying some projects like this with them – especially for when you want to make something that can suit any dietary need/restriction!

    1. livingfreelygf says:

      They have definitely come a long way! There are a lot of really good ones available now.

    I haven’t made scones in ages! This recipe has me hankering them now, that’s for sure. Especially with this flavor combo. In my world, savory scones > sweet scones ANY day!

    1. livingfreelygf says:

      I am so with you Dana! I love dipping these in my soup.

    I love homemade bread and anything savory! These scones would be great as an appetizer or a savory snack. I can’t believe that people who have problems with gluten can enjoy these scones worry free. I can’t wait to make them.

      Thank you Marisa!

    These scones would be so perfect for brunch! I have a few friends who follow a gluten-free diet and am always looking for recipes to keep on hand for when we get together. The texture looks fantastic, and I love that I can make them dairy-free too for those who can’t have cheese!
