A Taste of Thai Coconut Milk and anise team-up for a totally delicious, dairy-free scone. They make a delightful addition to any special breakfast, brunch or tea!


  • 3 cups plus 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup sweetened flaked coconut
  • 1-2 tablespoons anise seeds (depending on preference)
  • 1 cup Coconut Milk
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil, melt if solid
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon coconut extract
  • nan
  • Optional glaze:
  • 1 cup sifted confectioner's sugar
  • 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
  • Large pieces of flaked coconut


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Lightly grease cookie sheet or cover with parchment paper.
  2. Sift flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt into a large bowl. Mix flaked coconut and anise seeds into flour mixture.
  3. Beat Coconut Milk, coconut oil, eggs and coconut extract in a small bowl. Pour liquid ingredients into flour mixture and mix until dough comes together. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured counter. Knead one or two turns until dough is firm enough to divide into 2 equal portions.
  4. Form each portion into a flat, six inch disk. Place each disk on parchment and cut each one into 8 equal triangles. A bench scraper is the best tool for this but a floured knife will work as well. Gently separate scones so they have room to expand while baking.
  5. Bake for 16-18 minutes until firm to touch. Cool baking sheet on a wire rack.
  6. Serve as is, or glaze when cool. For a decorative touch, sprinkle wet glaze with large pieces of flaked coconut.
  7. Optional glaze: Mix confectioner's sugar with coconut oil and pour onto scone with a teaspoon. Sprinkle with flaked coconut or large pieces of coconut, if desired.
