Paleo Blueberry Scones

Paleo Blueberry Scones feature a cashew flour base that is made lighter and fluffier with arrowroot starch, and perfectly sweetened with fresh blueberries and real maple syrup for the perfect healthier breakfast treat!

Do you love road trips as much as I do? Samantha, my youngest sister, and I are on the ultimate road trip.

Starting point: San Antonio, TX.

Ending point: Seattle, WA.

Duration: 5 days.

Entertainment: Language of Flowers {audio book}, Kitchen House {audio book}, dodging dust devils, and hunting for parking spots that don’t require us to show off how talented we are at backing up a truck and trailer.

Sustenance: Buc-ee’s beef jerky, freeze-dried cherries, banana chips, peppered cashews, apples, almond butter, coconut water, coffee, and Orbit’s strawberry gum {two pieces at a time = mandatory}.

I’m writing to you as we roll through Western Arizona, soon to be South Eastern California. It’s fascinating to watch the landscape change. From the comforting ancient trees of the Texas Hill Country, flat nothingness of West Texas, smooth mini mountains in New Mexico, and the biggest boulders I’ve ever seen in my life in Eastern Arizona …{we keep reciting Donkey’s line from Shrek movie: “that’s a nice boulder.”}

I desperately want to pull over and take pictures – of everything. It’s so beautiful. I also desperately want to climb every mountain we pass. I love to hike. These hills {mountains?} are so inviting. And probably crawling with creatures that sting. I changed my mind.


Yes, there’s a more direct route to Washington. We chose the California landscape for our slightly longer, prettier drive. We’re in no rush. We’ll drive a stone’s throw from Carson, CA so that we can absorb some of the CrossFit awesomeness happening there this weekend {nobody spoil it for me}, while our hearts are set on spending extra time in Portland, OR for some grub. Y’all ever see Portlandia? I’m dying to meet an environmentally sustainable chicken farmer …who names his chickens.

Samantha starts grad school this Fall in the Seattle area, so I volunteered to accompany her and all her stuff for the drive. I’ll help her get settled then fly back to TX. I will probably sit in amazement on that flight, marveling at the miracle of speedy travel by airplane. Nothing makes you appreciate modern transportation like a 5-day road trip across the country. I’m currently having visions of the Oregon Trail …wondering how many oxen we’ll lose if we cross over any water.

Anyhew, even though I’m not in my kitchen and am surviving on dried goodies and gas station waters, I’ve prepared something very special for you all. My friend Juli Bauer of PaleOMG {okay, we’ve only met once, but I’ve decided we’re going to be great friends} posted this recipe for Lavender and Vanilla Bean Scones. I drooled over the recipe, immediately made a batch, and then kept playing. I wound up with a Paleo blueberry scone version that I now make every single time we have company.

Thank you, Juli for the awesome recipe.

Thank you, countless guests at Austin and my house for eating all the experiments.

Cashews for Paleo Blueberry Scones

So the flour base for these Paleo blueberry scones is unique – cashews! It’s as delicious as it sounds. I have a huge bin of salted cashews from Costco. They work just great. Measure out 1.5 cups and pour them into a food processor. Also, preheat your oven to 350 F.

Blend the cashews until they resemble a coarse meal.

Arrowroot Starch for Paleo Blueberry Scones

Meet Mr. Arrowroot! He's a paleo-friendly starch, very messy, and works wonders in gluten-free baked goods.

    What’s the purpose of the arrowroot powder? Does it make it hold together better, or…?

    • #
      fedandfitposted July 29, 2013 at 9:44 am

      Hi Rachel! Good question, and yes. The arrowroot combined with the cashew meal result in a flour that behaves more closely to that of wheat flour.

    • #
      fedandfitposted August 18, 2013 at 10:25 am

      Maybe more time in the oven. Depending on the moisture of the blueberries, it may just need a little more heat to firm up. I hope that helps! I ate a few trial batches with a spoon too 😉

    • #

      Hi!! The frozen berries should work fine. You may need to increase the cook time a bit if the scones don’t set. I wish you all the best and please let me know how else I can be a resource for you along your journey!

    Because so many paleolithic era people had access to baking powder…

    • #
      fedandfitposted September 3, 2013 at 11:00 am

      Good point! They did not. The Paleo lifestyle that I promote and build recipes from is structured more around certain nutrition principles than as a reference to the Paleolithic era.

      Rachel Ball (@grokgrub)posted September 3, 2013 at 12:38 pm

      If the issue is with baking powder specifically, I’ve heard the Paleo police say the cornstarch in it is a no-no, compared with the pure sodium bicarbonate in baking soda. But I don’t sweat the small stuff!

    • #
      fedandfitposted September 3, 2013 at 3:01 pm

      Great point, Rachel! I like to use baking powder because I find it a little more reliable than baking soda {which then requires the use of some form of acid}. I’m with you on the small stuff, but this has given me great food for thought. I’ll start experimenting with repeatable baking soda use portions. Thanks, girl!

    If you used almond flour how much do you think you should use? Because 1 1/2 cups of whole cashews will turn out to be how much after you grind it?

    • #
      fedandfitposted September 9, 2013 at 11:35 am

      Good question …I need to grind some up and then I can let you know. My best guess is 1 & 1/3 cup. I’ll need to verify though.

    Do you think this recipe would work just as we’ll without the maple syrup?

    • #
      fedandfitposted September 12, 2013 at 12:02 pm

      I haven’t tried the recipe without the maple syrup, so I can’t really say. The moisture added is necessary to the consistency of the finished scones. You can experiment by substituting honey or an equal amount of water. I’m not sure what the flavor or texture will be like, though. Please let me know if you give it a try! I’d love to know how they come out with that modification.

  13. #
    Sarahposted September 13, 2013 at 8:53 pm

    These look delicious! I have two questions: Should the cashews be salted or does it not matter? Or if they’re unsalted should I add some salt to compensate? Also, any advice on how to adjust cooking time if using a glass baking dish instead of metal? Thanks. I’m excited to try them this weekend!

    • #
      fedandfitposted September 13, 2013 at 10:22 pm

      Hi Sarah! I used salted cashews, but I’ve heard that the recipe will work with either. If you want the flavor to match as closely as possible and you’re using unsalted nuts, add an additional pinch of salt. I’m not sure how much longer it will take to bake in a glass dish, but you can use the toothpick test pretty easily. Insert a toothpick in the baking scones. If it comes out with dough on the stick, they need more time. If it comes out clean, they’re done! You can also tell by the look of the top crust. It should be golden brown. Hope that helps!

    Sunshineposted September 15, 2013 at 9:22 am

    Yum! I used the almond flour substitution of 1 1/3 cups (reason being I was too lazy to grind the cashews) and all my measurements were made by a 4 year old (probably not too exact). I also baked it in a glass 9×9 and had to extend the cooking time by about 5 minutes. My point is, I rarely make a dish exactly to the recipe due to lack of ingredients or some other random reason and this came out beautifully. It must be resilient. I love your recipes, I love your positive posts, and I will keep coming back for more!

    aninaposted September 18, 2013 at 6:17 pm

    Hey there
    I finally made this using homemade almond meal and raw honey instead of maple syrup mainly because I didn’t have any MS. I also didn’t have a pan so ended up spooning the mixture in a muffin tray (makes 6) and they were YUMMOLICIOUS! I’m going to try them again but sub the coconut oil for olive oil. Mainly because my husband can’t have coconut oil due to its saturated fat levels and will let you know. Do you think I’ll get away with using 1/4c of olive oil? Will that be sufficient?
    Thank you once again for sharing…very yummy the day after too!

    • #
      fedandfitposted September 18, 2013 at 6:20 pm

    I desperately want to make pumpkin scones, any ideas on adapting this recipe? I will leave the blueberries out for sure and maybe add some cinnamon but not sure what other adjustments might be necessary. Thanks for posting this one though, it’s delicious 🙂

    • #
      fedandfitposted September 23, 2013 at 9:52 am

      Hi Kristena! What a brilliant idea you have. I’m going to get busy experimenting. I would probably add 1/4 cup (maybe more) of pumpkin puree (from a can), some cinnamon, and maybe some ground cloves. I’d probably add some extra coconut four to make up for the moisture added by the pumpkin puree. I’ll get to work! Thanks for commenting!

    Tposted September 21, 2013 at 8:17 pm

    Just made these and tasted them – FABULOUS! I immediately ran out to buy more cashews so I can make another batch in near future! Thanks so much for this great recipe!
    FYI for anyone who cares – I used raw cashews that were previous soaked and dried in a dehydrator for almost 48 hours and stored in a glass jar (that’s what I had on hand), and only added one pinch of salt. Came out great! This really helped me with having multiple breakfast options for my upcoming busy week (and an lovely item for tea with the ladies). Thanks so much! Looking forward to more recipes!

    Emma Leeposted September 22, 2013 at 9:09 am

    This recipe looks great. I’m certainly not a paleo policewoman by any stretch. The Costco cashews are cooked in canola oil and not ideal for paleo baking. Do you (or any commenters) have suggestions on where to find cashews whose only ingredient is um… cashews? And what is a reasonable price?? Thanks for posting this recipe!! And beautiful photography as well.

    • #
      fedandfitposted September 23, 2013 at 10:05 am

      Hi Emma! You are so right about the Costco cashews. If you’re looking for a more pure approach, you can do as some other readers have suggested …purchase raw cashews (find them in the bulk foods section of your local grocery store/whole foods), soak the cashews for 4-6 hours in water, then place them in either a counter-top dehydrator or your oven @200-250 F until they’re dry. As far as reasonable price goes, it can be hard to say. I think you can purchase a pound of whole raw cashews from Trader Joe’s for ~ $10. Hope that helps!

    marlaposted September 23, 2013 at 10:08 am

    I made these scones on Saturday and they were delicious! I got distracted and accidentally left out the arrowroot, but they still turned out with a texture similar to cornbread. My husband and 2 year old son devoured the whole batch! I was reading the comments about baking powder and I think a good substitution would be 1/2 tsp. baking soda + 1/2 tsp. lemon juice. The lemon should set off the taste of the blueberries nicely. In fact, I might even add some grated lemon peel to the next batch. Love your blog – keep of the good work!

      fedandfitposted September 23, 2013 at 10:10 am

      Hi Marla! I’m so glad you and your family liked the scones. Great tip regarding a leavening substitute! I agree that the lemon zest and blueberry would go really well together. Thanks for your feedback!

    Michaelposted September 25, 2013 at 11:14 am

    Why do you need to soak and dehydrate the raw cashews? I thought they were already in that state when you buy them. I am considering just lightly roasting (low heat) raw cashews with a little salt and almond oil.

    • #
      fedandfitposted September 29, 2013 at 2:38 pm

      Great question, Michael! It is my understanding that soaking the raw cashews helps to remove certain enzymes that can hinder the absorption of vitamins and minerals, in addition to a few other other benefits.

      Hi Alex! I haven’t tried this recipe with cashew butter, so I don’t really know how to advise. It will change the moisture content. You can start off with a direct substitution and then add or subtract amounts as you experiment. Sorry I can’t be of more help!

    These are wonderful! I made these with raw cashews (added a dash of salt), cold butter instead of coconut oil (I cut this into the dry ingredients) and frozen blueberries (had to add about 10 minutes to the baking time). My husband and 4 year old son thought they were amazing as well (I made them to take with us on a long airplane ride tomorrow, so I only allowed them to each have 1 and they’re mad they can’t have more right now). I meant to add some lemon zest since I love blueberry and lemon together, but I forgot to. I will try that next time, as I plan to make these again and again. As someone earlier mentioned, they do have a texture similar to cornbread, so I think if you eliminated the blueberries and vanilla (and perhaps reduced the maple syrup) it would make a pretty awesome grain-free “corn”bread recipe.

I used almond flour (1 1/3 c) as I didn’t have cashews on hand, made 3 and omitted the coconut oil for 1 ( oops…forgot it) and pleased to say that although it was just a bit drier it was still terrific.

I baked at 350 for around 25 min. It was a bit crumbly but not too bad so next time i may add a bit of water or some type off milk.

    Hey there! I loved this recipe! I had to swap the cashews for another type of flour since there are nut allergies in my household. Also had to omit the coconut oil due to allergies as well. It’s a challenge cooking & baking when many of our allergies are go-to’s for health food fans! 🙁 I also swapped Agave Syrup for the maple syrup. Will let you know how that turns out. I know it sounds like I changed the whole recipe, but I truly tried to stay a s close to the true recipe as I could!

    I love this recipe! Finally something I really like and so is my husband. I baked 2 with slight changes and they came out great! First time I used almond meal and honey instead but the second time I made bigger alterations. I used 1 cup of almond meal and 1/2 coconut flour, honey, I mixed coconut oil and olive oil in a 1/4 cup and I added additional egg and half of a banana (plus the rest of your ingredients of course). The second one was lighter and tasted a little like banana bread. I baked the second in muffin trays for 25 min in 350F.

Fluffy, just sweet enough and the taste is out of this world!!! Highly reommended!!

    I am a Type 2 diabetic and although I eat mostly meat, veggies and fruits to keep my carbs within my Dr. limits, I have been looking at some Paleo recipes recently with the hopes of finding recipes which would work for me with low carbs and calories. My mouth watered when I saw your recipe tonight. I haven’t made this dish yet since I need hubby to go buy some of the ingredients. I have made a slight adjustment to your recipe to make it fit better into my food plan. Here are the changes I plan to make and the results. I posted the numbers for your original recipe and my changes so that others can use the nutrition numbers if they need them. NOTE**I haven’t decided yet how much Splenda to use. I will decide as I taste the water and Splenda to get the same sweetness as the syrup would give to the dish. I will post the amount after using the substitution. Thanks so much for the recipe. I can’t wait to try it. I also love Strawberry Scones so might try them as well later.

      Hi Ashley! Not sure why that happened and I haven’t heard that happening to others before. It will be different from a typical scone you get in a coffee shop as we aren’t using any gluten. If you wanted, you could try to add more maple syrup to make it sweeter. Hope it turns out better next time!

    AWESOME recipe. Very delicious! Question: do you know how much calories the scones have?

      Kellyposted March 31, 2016 at 2:35 am

      We don’t have the calorie breakdown for this recipe, but if you liked you could enter the ingredients into an online nutrition calculator and it should give you that information. MyFitnessPal works great for this. Hope that helps!

    These scones are delicious! I substituted unsweetened applesauce for the maple syrup (1 to 1) and they turned out perfectly!
    They weren’t very sweet, but the texture was good.

    Would pecans be too soft to use instead of cashews? I do have almond flour I can use. I just don’t have cashews.

      Hi Laurie! Either of those would work!

    Just curious with blackberry season about to begin in my neck of the woods: Do you think these would work with either raspberries or blackberries?

    Hi! How can I sub the arrowroot flour? I live in Colombia and it’s impossible to find it here! I can easily find almond, coconut, and rice flours… even the Bob’s gluten free all purpose baking flour! Help!

    these scones ? more like scone powder!! my wife and i made 4 different batches with varying ratios of ingredients and each tasted terrible and had the consistency of sand! my wife is allergic to almonds and cashews, so we substituted coconut flour instead and now i think we’re both allergic to these scones.

    i don’t think there is any way to save these scones. we now use the scone powder as ice melter for our ski chalet in Alaska.

    Could you please tell me how many calories this is. Would you be able to tell me how much sugar is being used as you placed maple syrup and vanilla extract into this wonderful recipe. I would love to make this for the kids only if it isn’t too high is the sugar or calorie area.

    Kind regards,

    Just figured I would comment as I have made these 10+ times and they are great! I make them for friends with special dietary requirements mostly but everyone (even non-paleo/ gluten free etc) likes them.

    I have made with no Maple Syrup or other sweetners for sugar free friends – you barely notice the difference to be honest. Taste fine as they have fruit anyway.

    I have made with almond flour/ meal instead of the cashews and both are great.

    As a variation I have also replaced the blueberries with raspberries and then added some dark choc – which is really good too!

    I have mainly used frozen berries (either blueberries/ raspberries etc) and while the mix can look a little solid when you put it in the pan (as the frozen berries freeze the dough a little) it always cooks perfectly.

    Thanks so much for the recipe – just about to make again! 🙂

    HI Cassy Joy! I made these tonight and they turned out DELICIOUS! Thanks for the awesome recipe.

    I was wondering if you have any experience with freezing some of it to keep for a later date? If so, how did you re-heat? I can’t eat it all in the next few days and don’t want it to go to waste!

    Thank you!

    So I see I’n a little late to the party but this is the first time I’ve used cashew flour and I am totally blown away by it. This is also the third nut flour scone I’ve made this week, the other two got trashed poor unfortunate souls.
    Anyway since I can’t eat eggs I took the liberty of making a couple of changes which I thought I’d share for anyone else who might need to do the same. So here’s what I did: I made it using a flax egg (1Tbsp ground flax + 2Tbsp squeezed lemon juice), 1 1/2 tsp gelatin powder + 1 Tbsp coconut cream. I added the flax+gelatin to the dry and the lemon juice+coconut cream to the wet. Plus another 2 tsp cinnamon. I literally cannot stop eating this stuff.
    So, so, so good. This is the best paleo scone I’ve ever eaten. My search is complete. Thank you!

    Hi! I just came across this recipe on Pinterest and would love to try it, but I don’t have any coconut oil. Since I’m not really specifically looking to make it Paleo, Can I use butter instead? Would it be an even substitution?

    My daughter introduced me to these great blueberry scones – I love them! I have not had time to go thru all posts here so this may have been answered
    I’ve only made these once. The blueberries all sank into the batter when baked. You could only see blueberries after cutting into scones.

    I wonder if my baking powder was bad? Have you had someone who has had this happen and what is the answer. My daughter’s BB scones come out perfectly as pictured.

    Thanks for any info.

    These are good! But they came out a bit too moist, and my batter was runnier than yours.
    Not sure why. I used frozen blueberries but thawed, rinsed and drained them first.
    Anyhow, they’re quite tasty.
