Tender, moist Vegan Blueberry Scones with simple glaze are a wonderful addition to any breakfast or brunch! Better than Starbucks! Vegan Blueberry Scones

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon ground flaxseeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 8 tablespoons cold vegan butter, (or solid coconut oil)
  • 3/4 cup almond milk, (soy or coconut milk fine)
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3/4-1 cup fresh blueberries, (may use frozen as well)
  • OPTIONAL: lemon zest from 1 lemon

Simple Glaze, optional

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons almond milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Instructions:

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, ground flaxseeds, salt and sugar.
  • Add the cold vegan butter, and use a pastry cutter or your hands to work the butter into the dry ingredients. It should resemble coarse crumbs.
  • Pour in the milk and vanilla, and stir until just combined. Fold in the blueberries.
  • On a lightly floured surface, knead the dough a few times until it comes together. Flatten the dough with your hands (lightly flour your hands if sticky). Flatten it into a circle, about 1 inch thick.
  • Using a pizza cutter or large knife, cut it like you would a pizza, into 8 pieces.
  • Place the scones onto the prepared baking sheet and bake for 22-26 minutes, until lightly golden brown on top.

Make the optional glaze:

  • Combine the powdered sugar, milk and vanilla in a small bowl and whisk until smooth. If the glaze is too thick, add more milk. If too thin, add more powdered sugar.
  • Let the scones cool for at least 15 minutes, then drizzle some of the glaze onto each scone. Let the glaze set before serving.

Notes:

  • May also use whole wheat pastry flour or white whole wheat flour. A gluten free flour mix would probably work, but I haven’t tried it.
  • You can sub the vegan butter with coconut oil that is hard. Cut it into the dry ingredients the same way.
