If you’ve ever felt intimidated by baking, you must make a batch of these warm and cozy Mango Spiced Scones. They’re a great beginner recipe and an instant confidence-booster because they’re made from simple ingredients that get combined together in one big bowl. You can mix your scones by hand and get in a quick arm workout, or do what I do and let your stand mixer (with the paddle attachment) handle all of the heavy-lifting. 😉

The star ingredient here is REBBL’s 3 Roots Mango Spice Elixir, which serves as an extra flavorful stand in for milk. It’s made from Alphonso mango and banana, with just the right kick of heat from cayenne pepper at the end. It’s bright and fruit-forward, and incorporates anti-inflammatory turmeric, black pepper (which helps increase the bioavailability of curcumin, turmeric’s star antioxidant), ginger root, and ashwagandha. Ginger is wonderful when it comes to aiding digestion, and I love ashwagandha for helping me manage stress.

These perfectly Fall-spiced scones are gluten-free and vegan, and lightly sweetened with just a small pour of pure maple syrup. To make them gluten-free, I use a combination of gluten-free all-purpose flour and fine almond flour from blanched almonds. And instead of butter, I like to swap in unrefined coconut oil. From there, my motto is to go heavy on the spices and mix-ins to really amp up the flavors—a little extra ground ginger and turmeric, plus lots of chopped fresh mango and chewy crystallized ginger studded throughout. You could stop there, but what’s a scone without a little icing? I highly recommend topping them with a drizzle of my 3-ingredient coconut butter glaze.

This mango spiced scone recipe makes 1 round, which slices into 8 small-medium scones. Aaron and I always devour them within a couple of days, but it’s worth noting that they freeze well too. If you decide to go that route, simply let your scones thaw on the counter at room temperature, then drizzle on the icing and enjoy!

  • 1/2 cup fine almond flour (from blanched almonds)
  • 1½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ cup coconut oil, solid and cut into pea-sized pieces
  • 3/4 cup diced fresh mango
  • 1/3 cup diced crystallized ginger
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup

  • 1 tablespoon REBBL 3 Roots Mango Spice, room temperature
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Cuisine: Vegan, Gluten Free Servings: 8 scones

Simple vegan and gluten-free mango scones spiced with ginger and turmeric, then drizzled in a naturally sweet, 3-ingredient coconut butter glaze. These scones are a great (easy!) recipe if you've ever felt intimidated about baking your own at home.

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375° F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, lightly dust with flour, and set it aside.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the REBBL 3 Roots Mango Spice and lemon juice. Allow to sit for 5 minutes.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, use the paddle attachment to mix together the all-purpose flour, almond flour, baking powder, baking soda, ground ginger, turmeric, and salt. Add the coconut oil pieces and mix on low-medium speed until well-incorporated (about 30 seconds). Gently fold the mango and crystallized ginger into the flour mixture.
  • Make a well in the center and add in the REBBL 3 Roots Mango Spice and lemon juice mixture, maple syrup, and vanilla. Mix until a slightly sticky, very thick dough forms.
  • Transfer the dough to your prepared baking sheet. Lightly dust it with flour, then form it into an 8-inch round and cut into 8 parts, leaving space between each so all sides can brown. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until golden and no longer doughy. Allow the scones to cool on the baking sheet for 10 minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • While the scones cool, make the glaze: Add the coconut butter, REBBL 3 Roots Mango Spice, and vanilla to a small mixing bowl. Stir together until smooth. (The coconut butter should be the consistency of drippy peanut butter.) Drizzle the scones with the glaze and serve.

Notes [3]

You’ll have a little less than a cup of the REBBL 3 Roots Mango Spice drink left after you make this recipe. Feel free to sip it alongside your scones, add it to a smoothie, or mix it into overnight oats (so good!)

I use and recommend this Gluten-Free 1 to 1 Baking Flour from Bob’s Red Mill.

I’ve made these scones a handful of different ways and found them to be adaptable. If you’d prefer not to make them gluten-free, you can use all-purpose flour with excellent results. This recipe also works well with 100% light spelt flour or half light and half whole grain spelt flour.

    You had me at chewy crystallized ginger. 😉 I bet the ginger / mango combo is fantastic!

    1. It’s such a great combination!

  2. Alexa says

    That color is stunning! I’ve been incorporating more turmeric into my diet lately so this will be perfect as a treat. I haven’t tried this REBBL flavor yet but I love their Reishi Chocolate one! Thanks for sharing!

    1. Their Reishi Chocolate is one of my favorites too! Anything chocolate, really. 🙂

  3. Mango sounds like such a delicious flavor for scones! 🙂

    1. Yes! It’s so sweet on its own, you hardly need any added sugar. 🙂

  4. Heather says

    This is so unique Amanda! And that coconut butter icing?! Drooling!

    1. Thanks, Heather! The coconut butter icing is so good. I love it as a more wholesome alternative to using powdered sugar.

  5. Mary says

    I’m not gluten-free but I’d like to make these scones over the weekend for a brunch I’m hosting. Do you think all purpose flour will work?

    1. All-purpose flour will definitely work! (check out my recipe notes for some other flour options too 🙂 )

  6. leslie says

    I am not familiar with REBBL Mango Spice. Could mango juice be used instead?

    1. REBBL Mango Spice uses a coconut milk base, plus mango puree (and it has a bit of a kick at the end). Most Whole Foods and Targets sell it, but if you can’t find it near you, I’d say try a 50/50 mix of full-fat coconut milk and mango juice, with a pinch of cayenne if you like a little spice.
