This savory scone says “goodbye” to cream, butter, and all-purpose flour, and “hello” to a gluten-free dough filled with flax seeds, almond flour, and coconut oil. To amp up the superfood factor, we added a supplement powder with black seed (also known as nigella), aloe, and turmeric that’s fermented so it’s gentle on tummies. To finish it off, sprinkle on a totally addicting topping inspired by “everything bagels.” And here’s a tip—make a double-batch of the topping and save some to dust over popcorn.

Make the scones
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and generously mist a 10-inch cast-iron pan with cooking spray. Whisk flax seeds and water in a large bowl; let sit 5 minutes. While the flax seeds soak, whisk almond flour, tapioca flour, fermented black seed powder, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and 1 tablespoon topping mixture in a medium bowl.
Add coconut oil and almond milk to bowl with the flax seeds; whisk until fully combined. Pour dry ingredients into wet and stir until incorporated. Pour batter into pan and smooth with an icing spatula. Sprinkle remaining topping over the batter. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until toothpick comes out clean and scones are slightly golden.
