My Single Serving Chocolate Chip Scone is a gluten-free scone that comes together in a matter of minutes, making it the perfect, simple, and easy breakfast to whip up anytime.

If there’s one thing to know about me, it’s that if I’m going to get a treat at my local coffee shop, it’s definitely going to be a scone. While scones are highly underrated, if you ask me, they are truly one of my favorite things. Why, you may ask? Because not only are they delicious, but they pair perfectly with my favorite cup of coffee!

And when it comes to my favorite flavor of scone, hands-down, it has to be chocolate chip. While I love a fruit-forward scone, like my Single Serving Peach Walnut Scone, there is something about a chocolate chip scone that is truly my favorite.

But as someone with a more sensitive stomach, traditional scones with flour and white sugar don’t always bode well with me. While they are delicious, they can leave me feeling sluggish, which isn’t exactly what I want at the beginning of my day. This is exactly why I knew I needed to make a scone recipe that was completely gluten-free. Not only is it just as delicious, but it’s gentler on your stomach, especially if you tend to be more sensitive to gluten like I am!

What You Need to Make This Warm, Chocolate-Y Scone

All you need are 6 simple and easy ingredients to bring this scone to life!

  • Rolled Oats / Oat Flour: To keep this scone light and gluten-free, we’re swapping out conventional flour for oat flour. You can buy your oat flour pre-made, or if you’re like me, you can make it yourself in less than 30 seconds with some rolled oats. It’s so easy!
  • Brown Sugar: Brown sugar adds the perfect amount of sweetness to this scone, without being overpowering.
  • Baking Powder: A touch of baking powder will help this scone rise!
  • Butter: You’ll want to use cold butter, in this recipe. That’s the secret for achieving the perfect consistency with this scone!
  • Milk of Choice: Any milk works well in this recipe! I use almond milk because it’s my favorite, and what I usually have on-hand, but either dairy milk or non-dairy milk works well, in this recipe.
  • Chocolate Chips: Of course, this wouldn’t be a chocolate chip scone without the chocolate chips!

How to Make This Simple & Easy Single Serving Scone Recipe

Making this scone couldn’t be any easier! Simply start by preheating your oven to 350 F and lining a baking sheet with parchment paper. You may need to lightly grease the tray first, so that the parchment paper sticks to it.

Next, prepare your oat flour if making it from scratch, by processing your rolled oats in a blender or food processor. If you’re using pre-made oat flour, you can skip this step!

Add your oat flour to a bowl alongside the cold butter, baking powder, and brown sugar. Mash it together (note: it will be very crumbly!) then, once fully combined, add the milk and mix until a thick dough forms. If the mixture is still crumbly, you can add in more milk until it reaches the desired consistency.

Finally, add your chocolate chips to the dough. Using your hands, form your dough into a round, scone shape and place it on your baking sheet. Sprinkle it with a handful of brown sugar, then bake for 18-20 minutes, until the top reaches a light, golden brown. Then, remove from the oven and enjoy!
