Cheddar & Pear Gluten Free Scones

Cheddar and Pear Scone. This gluten free recipe is perfect for fall

It’s pear season here on the North Central Coast of British Columbia, and lucky for me – I have a tree. Last year I sadly let many go to waste but this year I’m on a mission: to create delicious and healthy pear recipes that are out of the box and fun. Like these Cheddar and Pear Gluten Free Scones.

I was recently tested for food intolerance’s and sensitivities, the test has came back with a lot of results (100+). Although I’m sure a lot of those food sensitives will go away once I take care of a few health care issues right now I’m avoid a lot: including wheat and gluten.

A couple years ago my husband was avoiding gluten and I found a Paleo Burger Bun recipe from Paleo Plan. This recipe for Cheddar and Pear Gluten Free Scones is built on that said recipe. However, I’m going to call them scones as the texture reminds me of one of my favorites.

These gluten free scones use almond and coconut flours, originally I bought mine for the health food store but in the past two years I have noticed that these are widely available at grocery stores. Don’t be scared of them, they’re absolutely delicious and a great alternative to wheat flour (I’m so thankful I don’t have any dairy allergies because I would so sad to give up melted cheddar).

They puff up rather nicely and are incredibly soft and tender. My husband loves these without the pears with “sloppy joes” or Paleo Stuffed Peppers. The above photo looks rather boring, and I think adding in some parsley or Italian seasoning would have made them look a little more eye appealing. Either way, they taste yummy.

  1. These sound really good! I love pears and cheddar too and I have several friends who are gluten-free. Thanks for sharing! πŸ™‚

  2. This sounds like such an interesting combination. I love anything with pears and we just bought a big box at Costco. I’ll have to try these scones – I hope my kids like them!

  3. This recipe looks really delicious. I never thought of adding pears to my scones!

    • In all honesty, I wasn’t sure if I was to call this a biscuit or scone. I did some googling and they seem to be basically the same thing. I just opted to call it a scone πŸ˜‰

  4. I never think to cook with pear. These sound like they would be really good!

    • They are good and even after leaving it on the counter for a few hours (whoops) still super soft and delicious. I really like how they’re not drying up.

  5. These look delish and I have all of the ingredients!
    Time to bake me some scones πŸ˜‰
