Blueberry Coconut Chocolate Chip Scones

Blueberry Chocolate Chip Scones

Paleo breakfasts are the most requested recipes we get. I will say you might not want to eat these blueberry chocolate chip scones for breakfast every day but occasionally is great. Not to mention, you can easily swap out the fruits or ingredients to make as many fancy flavors as you want. Pumpkin orange, cranberry walnut, chocolate chocolate chip are just a few ideas that graced my brain to share with you.

Blueberry Chocolate Chip Scones

My favorite way to eat Blueberry Chocolate Chips Scones are when they are still warm from the oven and covered with grass-fed butter or homemade whipped cream. However, sometimes I change up the recipe and create entire new scone flavors that are equally as delicious. For these variations, the entire recipe stays the same except for omitting the dried blueberries and/or chocolate chips.

  • Coconut Scones – omit the blueberries and chocolate for a basic but delicious scone.
  • Fresh Blueberry Scones – omit the chocolate chips and add 1 cup of fresh blueberries.
  • Chocolate Scones – omit the dried blueberries and add 1/2 cup to 1 cup of semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips, depending how chocolatey you want your scones.
  • Strawberry and Chocolate Scones – replace the dried blueberries with fresh or dried strawberries that are chopped into smaller pieces. You can omit the chocolate and add 1 cup of fresh or dried strawberries for Strawberry Scones.
  • Cherry and Chocolate Scones – replace the dried blueberries with fresh or dried cherries. You can omit the chocolate and add 1 cup of fresh or dried cherries for Cherry Scones.
  • Raisin and Chocolate Scones – replace dried blueberries with an equal amount of raisins.
  • Blueberry and Lemon Scones – omit the chocolate and add the zest of 1 to 2 Meyer lemons, depending how much of a lemon taste you prefer.
  • Pineapple and Coconut Scones – omit chocolate and add 1 cup of fresh or dried pineapple that are chopped into smaller pieces.

Of course, there are endless fresh and dried fruit and even nut combinations, but these are the ones that I have tried and loved. If you don’t feel life experimenting, you can make one of my other delicious scones recipes.

  1. I finally made these, and I love them!! I didn’t have dried blueberries, but they still turned out great! I LOVE scones, so it’s nice to have a healthy alternative. They’ve been great for my morning sickness too as food isn’t that all appealing to me lately. Thank you for all of your wonderful recipes!

  2. I made these last night with blackberries instead of blueberries and 1 tablespoon of honey and one of xylitol instead of syrup and they were absolutely delicious!! Love the website George, keep up the wonderful work! :)

  3. I made these last night and they were absolutely delicious! For those curious I used blackberries instead and subbed 1 tablespoon of honey and xylitol each and they were still really sweet. Love the website George, keep up the wonderful work!

  4. I made these with dried cranberries and no chocolate chips bc my daughter recently revolted when I put choc chips in some paleo almond banana muffins. They were delicious!

  5. While craving bacon this morning, I came to your site for bacon recipes…I found this scone recipe and tweaked it by omiting blueberries and coconut, adding bacon, mashed banana, peanut butter and macadamia (why not!) And boy am I in a happy place right now! Thank you for your inspiration!

    1. Oh wow, I am drooling. I believe you can only make things better by adding bacon and I look forward to making these with your tweaks, Wendy!

      I just made these but with raisins, cinnamon, and walnuts. I remember how good these kinds of scones were pre-grain-free. They came out AWESOME!!! Thanks!!!

  6. I am drooling a little bit….also i am hesitant about the syrup/honey. I try to stay as clean/paleo as I can w/out spiking my blood sugar. I am currently grain/gluten free and as little sugar as I can possibly manage…could I use erythritol (or Swerve) to sweeten them naturally w/out the added sugars of syrup?

    I’m also fairly new to the paleo “rules”….it just happens to be how i eat by accident. I didn’t know there were actual rules :)

    Thanks for all your hard work George! You look incredible!

    1. Thank you for the kind words Heather. I am unfamiliar with those ingredients as the only sweeteners I use are honey, maple syrup, or sometimes coconut sugar. It may work but you will have to experiment

    2. Heather, my husband is a diabetic and when his diet is good, and I have Paleo treats onhand, such as Paleo brownies, pancakes, etc., local pure honey and pure maple syrup does not spike his blood sugar. Just an FHI. Has to be pure though and local if possible.

  7. I’m severe coconut allergic. Do you think these would come out okay if I omitted that ingredient? Or is there something I can sub for it?

  8. Wow this recipe is amazing. I made a batch with maple syrup as suggested and they were great, but i prefer raw honey as a sweetener so i made another batch with honey instead and they were just as good. Thanks for the great website!

  9. We just made these this morning. They are awesome!! I used fresh blueberries instead of dried and they turned out excellent:) Thank you for an awesome recipe!!!
