Scones (Whole Wheat, Vegan)

Submitted by: TAILSFOX
Scones (Whole Wheat, Vegan)

Introduction

By nature of being vegan, this recipe is cholesterol free, though I suppose you could change that and use regular butter and milk instead if that's what you have on hand.

This is a plain recipe that will make a biscuit-like scone, but you can jazz them up with whatever you have around: cinnamon, blueberries, dark chocolate chips, etc.

I usually add about a cup of blueberries. (If you do this, add .125 cups of blueberries to your nutrition tracker for each serving)

Ingredients

    2 cups whole wheat flour, plus extra for dusting
    1/4 cup raw/turbinado sugar, plus 2 tablesppons to sprinkle on top
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1/4 teaspoon baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 cup Earth Balance (other margarines will not work as well)
    1/4 cup soy or rice milk (unsweetened)

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400F.

Mix dry ingredients together, making sure there are no lumps in your baking soda or baking powder.
Rub in Earth Balance with your fingertips until the dough has a crumb like texture.
Pour in the soymilk a little bit at a time, mixing as you go. You only need to add enough soymilk for the dough to stick together.

Dust your countertop (or a large cutting board) with flour, and drop the dough onto the floured surface. Sprinkle a little more flour on top and form the dough into a circle about 1.5 inches thick. Cut the circle into 8 triangular slices like pie wedges.
Place the scones onto a cookie sheet at least an inch apart. Sprinkle tops with additional sugar.

Bake for 15-20 minutes, until golden on top and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

    These were really good. I substituted mashed banana for 1/2 of the butter/ margarine. - 9/18/12

    These sound delicious! Does this work with almond milk? - 7/14/10

    This should work just fine with Almond Milk. Sometimes I even use water if I'm out of soy/rice milk, and they still turn out great!

    I love scones with my coffee- thought I had to give them up until we made this one. Thanks for posting it! - 8/1/09

  • I used milk in place of the soy milk and Splenda in place of the sugar. For the sprinkled sugar, I used Xylitol. I also used light, spreadable butter. I had to add more than 1/4 cup of milk to get the batter to form. I put 3-4 white choc chips on top of each scone. (A tad dry but good w/ coffee.) - 1/4/12

  • Really good basic recipe. I made this batch with a cup of blueberries and 1/2 cup of walnuts. I did end up having to use about twice the soy milk to get the dough to stick together. Looking forward to trying different combos. - 4/22/10

  • These were so easy to make, and my (non-vegan) relatives loved them. I always thought that vegan scones were difficult, but i've been proved wrong. Yum! - 12/27/09

  • For a flour substitute, try soy flour, or a combo of potato and tapioca flours. They're what's in a lot of prefab GF/special diet mixes. Hope this helps! :) - 9/21/09
