Gluten Free Irish Soda Bread Scones recipe

I know the holiday has passed, but I wanted to share the recipe my husband came up with (the night before) to make on the morning of St. Patty’s day for our girls. Cause lately, that’s how we roll. At least we are early for next year. He knew they wouldn’t eat GF soda bread, but Gluten free Irish Soda Bread Scones? YES. They would.

He used grape jelly for these, but really you can use any flavor jam or jelly you would like. If you have an egg allergy (like our youngest does), you will notice they do not contain any egg. You can also make them almost lactose free (they do have butter). It is important to make our food as allergy friendly as we possibly can, because we have such a wide range of them in this family.

We are happy to share this yummy printable recipe with you (even if you don’t have any dietary restrictions)! Please let us know if you give these a try.
