Vegan Lemon and Blueberry Scones (HCLF)

I recently walked past a bakery and saw that they had lemon and blueberry scones and instantly I was reminded of the best thing I have ever eaten. Upon reflection, I don't even think it was lemon and blueberry flavour, but when I was in Berlin last year I had the pleasure of going the extremely exciting grocery store called 'Veganz'. At Veganz I had a scone. This scone changed my absolute life. I don't know if it's because I'd been living on oil clad lettuce leaves for the previous two months or if it's because this scone was as good as I thought.. but it was honestly life changing. Unfortunately for me, though, this scone at the bakery wasn't vegan. It also was full of chemicals and oils and just gross stuff. I was on a mission to recreate this fond image of a scone I had and I think I did a pretty decent job.




What you'll need:

  • 1.5 cup oat flour
  • 1/2 cup brown rice flour
  • 3/4 cup plant milk (I used reduced fat coconut, but almond/soy etc would work)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp lemon zest 
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence 
  • 1 cup blueberries (I used frozen, but either would work)





What you'll need to do:


  1. Pre-heat your oven to 200 degrees Celsius. 
  2. Combine your flour, coconut sugar and baking powder in a bowl. 
  3. Slowly mix in your plant milk, maple syrup, vanilla, lemon juice and lemon zest until well combined. 
  4. Add in your blueberries and mix together.
  5. Pour mixture into a non-stick circle cake tin.
  6. Bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown.
  7. Allow to sit for about 20 minutes before serving.
  8. Cut into pizza-shaped pieces and enjoy!

  1. Is Vanilla essence the same as vanilla extract?

    1. Vanilla essence is just the cheaper, less natural form of vanilla extract. They can be used interchangeably. :)

  2. Yum! These look incredible. I love scones as well and especially love topping them with a bit of coconut yogurt or coconut whipped cream - seriously to die for!
