Maple walnut scones are crunchy, sweet, delicious, moist, and soft; an incredible flavor combination.


  • 1 1/2 cups (unbleached) all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole white wheat flour
  • 3 tablespoons natural cane sugar
  • 3 tablespoons maple sugar
  • 1 tablespoon aluminum-free baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 3/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract or paste
  • maple syrup for brushing

Maple Glaze

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • water as needed 


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a bowl sift together the flours, sugar, maple sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  3. Cut in the coconut oil with a pastry cutter or with two knives until the mixture resembles sand.
  4. Add the chopped walnuts.
  5. Pour in the coconut milk and vanilla extract. Gently mix until just combined. The dough will be wet.
  6. Place the dough on a lightly floured work surface and form into a round disk about an inch thick and cut into eight pieces like a pie.
  7. Transfer each scone onto a lined baking sheet tray, brush with maple syrup.
  8. Bake for 18-22 minutes or until slightly golden on the edges.

Maple Glaze:

In a small bowl, mix together the powdered sugar and maple syrup. Adjust the consistency of the glaze by adding a few drops of water until you reach the desired consistency. 


  • Glaze: The key to making the best maple glaze for scones is to get the right glaze consistency. If the glaze is too thin, it will roll right off the scone and make it soggy. So you want to create the perfect maple glaze consistency by adjusting with more powdered sugar to thicken or a couple drops of water to thin the glaze.
