Coconut Chocolate Chip Scones – having an Almond Joy bar for breakfast isn’t acceptable, so these scones are a tasty, healthier option.
I am always surprised when I hear that one of my friends have never tasted a scone. They are a staple at our house for breakfast and snacks. They are just as easy to whip up as a batch of muffins, but they have less sugar.
Plus, the flavor combinations are endless! I am totally and completely in love with scones, and if you’ve never had one, I insist that you try one asap. They are so good!
Of course you know that I have a love affair with chocolate and coconut, so it was only a matter of time before I attempted a scone recipe with them. They were an instant success, and I should have doubled the batch because my family finished them off in just minutes. With the chocolate drizzle on top, can you blame them?
Let’s talk about the coconut for a minute. Coconut is plain all by itself. But toast it, and you have a whole new dimension of flavor. Out of this world flavor. Like, I can eat this stuff by the spoonful. It is tasty. And I’m addicted.
If you are a coconut chocolate fan like I am, you’ve got to try this scones. They are such a scrumptious breakfast treat. I’m not lying people. You need to get on the scone bandwagon!

COCONUT CHOCOLATE CHIP SCONES RECIPE
- 2 3/4 cups flour
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 Tbsp baking powder
- 1/2 cup cold butter
- 1 cup chocolate chips (I used semi-sweet)
- 1/2 cup toasted coconut, cooled
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 3/4 cup milk
- For topping:
- 1/4 cup chocolate chips (I used semi sweet)
- 1/4 cup toasted coconut
- Combine flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder in a mixing bowl. Grate in the butter and stir till coated. (Or you can cut it in with a pastry blender.) Add the chocolate chips and coconut.
- In a small bowl, whisk together the egg, vanilla, and milk. Add to dry ingredients and stir lightly till just moistened. If you need to add a little more milk you can. Don't over-mix!
- Divide dough in half and pat into 2 circles that are about 5" across. Cut each into 6 wedges. Place on cookie sheets. (Tip: For great texture and scones that rise up instead of spreading out, freeze the scones on the pan for 30 minutes.)
- Bake in a preheated 425° oven for about 18-20 minutes or till golden brown.
- Melt the 1/4 cup of chocolate chips and drizzle over the scones. Sprinkle with toasted coconut.
