Ingredients

Dry Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour or gluten-free flour blend, plus more for sprinkling
  • 1 cup gluten-free oats , plus more for sprinkling
  • 1/3 cup cane sugar , plus more for sprinkling
  • 1 tbsp ground chia or ground flax
  • 2 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt finely ground
  • 1/4 tsp ground cardamom optional

Wet Ingredients

The rest:

  • 1/2 cup vegan butter chilled
  • 1 cup frozen wild blueberries or fresh
  • 2 tbsp almond milk
  • 1 tbsp neutral oil

Glaze (optional)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375F/190C. Sift all-purpose flour through a fine mesh sieve into a large mixing bowl. (Optional to sift twice for extra light scones). Pulse oats in a blender, until finely ground, and add to bowl along with cane sugar, ground chia, baking powder, baking soda, sea salt and cardamom. Mix lightly to combine.
  • In a separate bowl combine coconut yogurt, almond milk and vanilla extract. Mix well.
  • Cut cold vegan butter into small cubes and add to dry ingredients. Massage with fingertips to combine the dough and butter, turning into a shaggy dough. Don't overwork the dough here, it should be shaggy and loosely combined. It's okay if it looks a little dry.
  • Slowly pour in liquid ingredients, while gently stirring to combine. Again, don't over mix. It's okay to be dry in places. Next add blueberries and mix gently to just combine.
  • Turn dough onto clean work surface and form together to make a round disk, about 1-inch thick. Optional to sprinkle the top with more flour if there are sticky spots while forming.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together almond milk and neutral oil. Paint the surface with liquid mixture to cover, and sprinkle with oats and cane sugar.
  • Line a baking tray with parchment paper. Using a spatula gently transfer scones to baking tray. Leave space between to allow them to grow. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until golden.
  • For the glaze (optional): combine yogurt, lemon juice and agave. Drizzle scones with glaze and serve.
