Strawberry Scone Recipe - Gluten free and sugar free with vegan option

Today in our farm box we had lots of fresh strawberries!

Spring is prime strawberry season here in the Bay Area and big, local strawberries are EVERYWHERE. There is even a person on the corner of our street selling big crates of strawberries. (I wish the ones he sold were organic, but unfortunately, they are not.)

The pressure is on to use these strawberries up quickly because these only stay fresh for a couple of days. Most of the time our family just can’t eat them quickly enough before they go bad, so I end up freezing them for smoothies. (To freeze strawberries, I wash the berries and then set them out on a towel to dry. When they have dried off, I take off the green top and toss them into a large freezer bag. See The Easiest Way to Freeze and Store Berries.)

I don’t know about your mornings, but ours are crazy hectic. We have kids running around, trying to get ready for school as quickly as they can because they slept in longer than they should have. Every morning is the same. I wake them up for school at 7:00 am, only to see them lay in bed for another 20 minutes. I open their blinds so the sunlight hits their sleepy faces at just the right angle, pull their covers off, and talk loudly. Nothing seems to work.

Because of our morning rush, the kids often run out the door with only a few bites of breakfast. I am always trying to create healthy “grab and go” breakfasts for my kids so I know they start their day out right.

This gluten and dairy-free strawberry scone recipe is loaded with nutrition and protein. As always, I use coconut sugar and no refined sugars to sweeten.

I am always looking for new and exciting ingredients to try when I make scones.  Scones can be sweet or savory.

Berries, cherries, and dried fruit are all great additions.

Likewise, savories like cheese, dill, bacon, etc. could be added as well.

The sky’s the limit!
