Gluten-Free Rice Crispy Scones

by Amie on May 4, 2011

Keeping up with the Ratio Rally and my fellow Gluten-Free ladies, this month we’re sharing with you a delicious spread of scones.

All gluten-free and delicious.

But, instead of the usual scone-like shape I decided to get a bit creative.

And I opted for a muffin tin.

Yes, a scone in a muffin shape.

Dense n’ hearty and perfect.

These babies will be gone before you know it. One bite and it’s all over.

Slice ‘em in half with a bit o’ jam, nut butter or honey and you’re all set.

Pure heaven. On earth.

In just a mini muffin-like scone.

Because life’s all about the little things and enjoying the unexpected.

So, when someone asks you if you’ve ever had a muffin scone…

You can say, “Surely, I have….”

And I know you’ll be making these again. They’re contagious and adorable.

I simply can’t resist.

With Mother’s Day coming up on Sunday, go ahead and whip up a batch. Momma will be proud and all smiles with each bite.

I promise.

Any substitute for the yogurt that is dairy free?

Reply

brooke @B & the boy! May 4, 2011 at 9:26 pm

Can you do a soy or coconut milk yogurt? Slightly different consistency but I imagine it would work. :)

Reply

Amie May 5, 2011 at 11:20 am

Actually, yes…great question. I used vanilla soy milk in this recipe earlier this week and they came out delicious. A bit less moist but very flavorful! Thanks for asking…let me know how you like it.

Amie May 5, 2011 at 11:23 am

Of course. I tried rice milk, soy milk and almond milk earlier this week. They all came out great. I have yet to try hemp milk and hazelnut milk but I’m going to have to try that this weekend….hope you enjoy this recipe!

Thanks Tara; they are so tasty. I opted for a bit of extra crunch with the currents, chocolate and the crispy rice…so much fun and so flavorful. It’s a snap, crackle n’ pop in every bite. Hehe. xo

Very creative to bake them like muffins! One question, and maybe I missed it so please forgive me if I didn’t see it, but what ratios by weight does your recipe convert to?

Amie May 11, 2011 at 7:46 pm
