Look for dried Bing cherries, which are naturally sweet, and avoid dried tart cherries, which always have added sugar. Enjoy a scone with some sugar-free jam or a wedge of light spreadable cheese and a glass of fat-free or 1% milk for a healthy breakfast.


  • 1 cup(s) flour, oat, gluten-free
  • 1/2 cup(s) flour, almond
  • 1/2 cup(s) flour, coconut
  • 2 tablespoon sweetener, monk fruit, no-calorie, baking formula
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder, gluten-free
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon, ground
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup(s) milk, fat-free
  • 1 large egg(s)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice, fresh
  • 1/2 cup(s) cherries, dried
    chopped, gluten-free all-natural, no-sugar-added


  • 1

    Make Ahead: The scones can be baked ahead and frozen for up to 3 months. To freeze, arrange on a small baking sheet and freeze solid, then transfer to a freezer container. Reheat in a microwave (30 to 45 seconds) or in a toaster oven (no need to thaw).

  • 2

    Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with foil (for easier cleanup) and lightly spray with olive oil.

  • 3

    In a large bowl, whisk together the oat flour, almond flour, coconut flour, monk fruit sweetener, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.

  • 4

    In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk, egg, vanilla, and lemon juice. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until well combined. Fold in the dried cherries.

  • 5

    Divide the dough into 8 balls and place on the baking sheet. With moistened hands, flatten and shape the dough into 8 triangles, 11 ⁄2 to 2 inches thick. Make sure the triangles are at least 2 inches apart.

  • 6

    Bake until lightly golden and a toothpick inserted in the center of a scone comes out clean, 15 to 20 minutes. Let cool on the pan.

  • Serving size: 1 scone
