Using coconut flour gives these scones a nice coconut flavor that complements the tartness of the kumquats.


  • ¾ cup coconut flour
  • 1 cup gluten-free oat flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 Tbs poppy seeds
  • ¼ cup coconut milk
  • 2 Tbs coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 Tbs agave nectar
  • 1/2 cup kumquats (seeded and finely chopped)


  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • In a large bowl, sift together coconut flour, oat flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix in poppy seeds and set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together coconut milk and coconut oil until fully combined. Add vanilla extract, agave nectar, and kumquats; stir to combine.
  • Slowly fold the liquid mixture into the flour mixture, and stir until a firm dough comes together. If the dough is sticky, add a tablespoon at a time of coconut flour until the dough reaches the desired consistency.
  • Knead the dough into a ball and transfer to a flat surface. Flatten the ball of dough with your palms until it is about ¾ of an inch to 1 inch thick. Use a large knife to cut eight equal pieces. Top each piece with a kumquat slice.
  • Transfer the scone slices to a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes, until slightly golden on top.
  • Cool on a wire rack.
