When I was growing up, I spent a big chunk of my childhood in the UK. Sadly, scones never really grew on me. They were always plain and dry. When I made these gluten free scones, I realized why the scones in the UK never really did it for me. . . they weren’t filled with raspberries and chocolate and burst with flavor (like these do)! While calling these Raspberry White Chocolate Chip Scones “healthy” might be a stretch, they are certainly a healthy-er alternative to traditional scones made with white flour and cream. There is a place in a healthy real food diet for some special treats– savor and enjoy these yummy scones!
