Heart Beet(root) Scones
Make your Valentine’s heart skip a “beet” with this amazing all-natural Heart Beetroot Scone.
In the spirit of all things red and pink, there should be at least one beet recipe to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Who doesn’t recognize how effective the colour of beetroot can be? So, I took a plunge to make a basket of freshly baked beetroot scones. Sounds a bit odd as Valentine’s treat, right? But I say, what better way to say, “I love you” with these heart-shaped scones.
My very own ‘Heart Beetroot Scones’ are so gorgeously pink and so good to eat either as a savory treat or with marmalade & cream as a dessert. The best way to eat your beets is to incorporate them into fun and tasty dishes.
Beets are finally getting the “superfood” status they deserve due to the ways they can nourish our bodies.
Uncomplicated ingredients handled with love – Here is how to make Heart Beetroot Scones at home.
280g gluten-free all-purpose flour or regular APF

85ml fresh beetroot juice

Milk/almond milk for brushing
- Preheat oven at 18 Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Mix together the flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl.
- Cut the butter into small pieces and blend it together with the flour. Use a pastry blender or in a food processor, pulsing it a couple of times. The mixture should look like coarse crumbs.
