Light and tender, gluten-free pistachio and chocolate chip scones are the stuff breakfast, brunch and fika dreams are made of.
Fika— a Swedish tradition which roughly translates as a time to gather with friends, eat lovely homemade baked goods and drink great coffee or tea, is a must amidst the hustle and bustle of daily life. Do you fika? Whether you’re new to the concept or just want to eat some yummy baked goods around 2 p.m. each day, I’ve got you covered with these gluten-free pistachio and chocolate chip scones.
Fresh from the oven, can you smell the cardamom? These golden beauties are laced with the warming spice traditionally used in Scandinavian baking. In fact, many of the most common fika baked goods involve cardamom in some way.
Light and tender, these gluten-free scones taste simply amazing with the addition of pistachios and tiny chocolate chips. Baking gluten-free treats can at times, be a challenge. But no-one would be the wiser with these scones. Topped with demerara sugar, these pistachio and chocolate chip scones get a bit of extra rise from a heaping tablespoon of baking powder, plus a teaspoon of baking soda. They also contain tapioca flour which improves the texture and golden baked exterior layer of the scones.
Although fika is an embrace of the slow life, this recipe can be whipped up in a snap. It takes just 30 minutes to prepare! I think you’re really going to love them.
