    These chocolate coconut scones are great to have in the mornings with your cup of coffee or tea!

    Ahh it’s the last day of June and fourth of July is on Friday. This is crazy! Should I be planning our Thanksgiving and Christmas menus now? ;)

    Speaking of holidays..that reminds me of a ton of leftover food which reminds me of what I’ve been eyeing for a while. I really want to get a chest freezer for our garage. It’s one of those appliances that I know I’ll use a lot because I like to buy a lot of bulk meats and I just feel that we’re always throwing a bunch of stuff into the freezer after meals, too. Oh, and not to mention the ice cream attachment that I have for my KitchenAid takes up pretty much all the space right now in our pull-out freezer. I usually remove it in the winter time so I can have more space. Anyway, so I didn’t realize they sold upright chest freezers so it’ll take up less space width-wise. Do you have a chest freezer? Do you love it?

    I was on a huge chocolate and coconut kick a while back when I decided to make these chocolate coconut scones. I wanted a bunch of coconut flavor so there’s triple coconut in this. Coconut oil, coconut flakes, and coconut extract. The mini chocolate chips and the chocolate drizzle on top totally complimented the scones. This was so good to have with our cup of coffee every morning. Scones are so easy to make, too, so I need to whip up another batch of these soon! Grab the recipe below – pretty sure you’ll love it!

    • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
    • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
    • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
    • 2 tablespoons baking powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 5 tablespoons coconut oil (hardened, not liquid form)
    • 1/2 cup coconut milk
    • 1 egg, lightly beatened
    • 1/2 teaspoon coconut extract
    • 1 cup sweetened coconut flakes
    • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

    For the chocolate drizzle

    • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, regular sized
    • 1/4 teaspoon vegetable oil


    • Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat.
    • In a large bowl, whisk together flours, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add the coconut oil and using a pastry blender, cut the coconut oil into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse, pea-shaped meal.
    • Add the coconut milk, egg, and coconut extract to the mixture. Stir together with a wooden spoon until it comes together. Add the coconut flakes and mini chocolate chips. Stir to combine.
    • Turn the mixture out onto a flat, lightly floured surface, and shape into a 1-inch thick circle. Cut the dough into 8 wedges.
    • Place the wedges on the baking sheet and bake for 16 minutes. Let rest on baking sheet for 10 minutes then place on a wire cooling rack to cool completely.
    • Once the scones have cooled, place the chocolate chips and vegetable oil in a small bowl and microwave in 30 second increments and stirring, until the chocolate chips have melted.
    • Carefully place the melted chocolate into a plastic bag and cut a tiny hole in the corner.
    • Drizzle chocolate over the scones and let it set for 30-45 minutes.
    • Store scones in an airtight container for up to 5 days.


    The vegetable oil in the chocolate drizzle is to give the drizzle that extra 'shine' and glossy look. You can omit it if you want.

    I love the combination of chocolate + coconut and these sound right up my street!

  • Jenny Flake says:


  • Lauren @ Climbing Grier Mountain says:

    Two of my favorite things!! Love these, Julie!

  • Maria says:

    Love the chocolate drizzle!

  • Naomi says:

    Chocolate and coconut paired together in a scone?? Always a good choice! This looks great

  • Rachel @ Baked by Rachel says:

    We have a chest freezer and don’t utilize it nearly enough. it basically holds Josh’s water packs and tons of ice cream and ice pops… plus my ice cream bowls lol. My intention was to pack it with meat. Maybe someday I’ll get back to that plan. I think they’re perfect if you use them well though! And srs why aren’t these scones in front of me to enjoy immediately?

  • Kelly says:

    This looks delicious! I love scones (and coconut!!), but have a hard time getting mine to have that lovely fluffiness in the center that my favorite tea rooms always seem to provide in their scones. Any suggestions?

    • Julie says:

      Hmm, I’m not sure Kelly! I’ve always thought my scones were fluffy, haha – maybe don’t bake them as long? Pull them out when they’re almost done and just let them sit? They do bake a little more even after you bring them out of the oven so if you bring them out a tad early, maybe they’ll be fluffier inside!

    • Janiece says:

      This recipe calls for 2 Tablespoons of baking powder so I would assume they would indeed be nice and fluffy. Does the recipe you have used in the past have this much leavening? I am looking forward to trying this!

    • Nikki @Seeded at the Table says:

      Not sure if this helps, but I would suggest making sure not to over-work the dough. :) That’s my trick to nice “fluffy” scones. Enjoy!

      • Kelly says:

        Thank you all for the suggestions! I wouldn’t be surprised to find I’ve been overworking my dough, Nikki! I’m going to give it a try soon!

    • Natalie says:

      Hi yes don’t overwork your dough! Scone dough just needs folded over two or three times then patted into the shape and height you want. That should make them fluffy all the time :)

  • Layla @ Brunch Time Baker says:

    A great flavor combo in a yummy scone! genius!

  • Leah | So, How's It Taste? says:

    Droooooling over these! Coconut and chocolate in a scone? Yes, I’ll take a dozen…and I will eat them all at once. ;)

  • Heather Christo says:

  • Medeja says:

    These scones look amazing :)

  • Francesca says:

    Oh my English mister LOVES scones -and- chocolate. Thanks, lady!

  • barry ozmo says:

    back in the 60’s and 70’s chest freezers were the go.something you could fit a side of lamb or even beef into.if there was a long blackout then bbqs were the answer.buying large quantities of quality beef makes great sense especially with your knowledge of surpliers.

  • Laura (Tutti Dolci) says:

    Gorgeous scones, what a perfect breakfast!

  • Kathy says:

    Decided to try these and grabbed my sil-pat pizza rounds to put them on… Word to the wise – don’t put something with coconut oil onto a sil-pat that has holes. Whoops! Coconut smoke everywhere! Thank goodness for a skylight that opens. We cleared it up, stuck a baking sheet on a rack below and good to go.

    • Julie says:

      Glad you guys were able to clear it up and make it work!

  • Kathryn says:

    Love these scones! When I make them though, they don’t hold their shape. They always spread into one giant scone. Any advice??

    • Julie says:

      You could pop them (after you’ve formed them) into the fridge for a bit to let them firm up before putting them in the oven. My guess is that the scone dough is too warm so it’s spreading out too much.

      • Kathryn says:

        Thanks Julie! I’ll definitely try that!

    • LisaB says:

      Maybe because the recipe only calls for 1 cup of flour total. I really think it should be 2 cups of flour. I make scones every weekend for my local market and I thought right away that these would be very wet. Try upping the flour!

      • Julie R says:

        I just made these today, I grated frozen butter into the dry ingredients and my coconut milk was cold. My dough was very wet. I’ve been making scones once a week because the kids love them. But something isn’t right with this recipe. I definitely think they need more flour, and 2 tablespoons of baking powder is far too much. They taste like baking powder. I think I’ll try them again, but with ratios more similar to the other recipes I’ve been trying, because I haven’t had one of those fail on me yet! Sorry! The flavor is awesome though, besides the baking powder taste. And they are soft and fluffy! Just flat as a sugar cookie!

  • Barbara says:

    Can I use all ‘all-purpose flour’ or does it need whole wheat flour?

    • Julie says:

      Yes, you can

  • Sarah says:

    Coconut milk in the can? Or coconut milk in the cold section? Thanks!

    • Julie says:

      Coconut milk in the can :) thanks for asking!

      • Sarah says:

        Thank you! I grabbed the right one. Making these to share with my two year old this morning. Can’t wait!

  • Terri says:

    I made these scones and they tasted wonderful. I did make find the dough too wet so did add approximately an additional cup of flour. (I hadn’t read any of the comments until after I made this recipe.) Also, I agree with the comment to chill the dough before putting the n the oven to prevent spreading. If chocolate and coconut are your favorites, then this scone recipe s for you!

    • Julie Wampler says:

      Great tips, Terri!

  • Hira Syed says:

    Hi Julie, I do not have coconut milk on hand neither any other non dairy, which other milk can work with this?

    • Julie Chiou says:

      regular cow’s milk is fine
