Wholegrain Spelt  Flour Scones: no dairy 4 ingredients

After many requests here's my wholemeal spelt flour scones recipe. These scones are made with only 4 ingredients. Wholemeal Spelt flour, baking powder, sugar and coconut milk. This spelt scones recipe is dairy-free and egg free. I love the simplicity of this recipe. Also that it is a little healthy without butter. The texture of my wholemeal spelt scones is light and with a gentle crumb as all good scones should have. Or so I am told!
This recipe was inspired by another YouTube channel The Happy Pear, they made spelt scones with baking powder and coconut milk. Totally plant-based scones and vegan.

Absolutely delicious and super easy. There's no blending of the butter into the flour

Takes = 5 minutes
Bakes = 12 to 15 minutes
Makes = approx. 6 scones approx 7cm (2.5 inch) round


  • Wholegrain Spelt Flour – 220g (1.5 cups)
  • Baking powder –  14g (4 teaspoons level)
  • Coconut milk – 150ml (1/2 cup) + 2-3 tbs plus extra for brushing
  • Sugar (optional) – 1 tbs


  1. Preheat oven to 220˚C/200˚C fan and preheat a lined baking tray on an upper shelf.
  2. Whisk the flour and baking powder into a medium bowl. Then add in sugar and the coconut milk and gently mix until combined.
  3. Place the dough onto a floured board and gently knead to remove any cracks.
  4. Pat down the dough lightly to approx. 1" in thickness. Cut into scones with a cutter dipped in flour. My size is 7cm (2.5 inches) Reform any leftovers.
  5. Place on a floured preheated baking sheet/tray, and glaze with a little coconut milk.
  6. Bake in a preheated oven on an upper shelf position for 12-15 mins approx. until golden brown. TIP: Having a slightly higher temperature gives the spelt scones a lift.
  7. Cool on a wire tray for 5 minutes. Serve with your favourite scone toppings.
