Berry Lemon Scones

These scones are the definition of an easy-to-make breakfast that will have you feeling fancy and save you money at the same time!


– 1 ½ C of all-purpose flour – ½ tsp of baking soda – 2 tsp of baking powder – 1 tsp of salt – ½ C of granulated sugar – ½ C of vegan butter – Zest of 1 lemon or 1 tsp of lemon extract – ½ C of fresh or frozen blueberries or berry of your choice – ½ C of plant-based milk I use almond, coconut is also good – Extra sugar and non-dairy milk for top of scones

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a cookie sheet with a silicone mat or parchment paper. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Mix well to distribute ingredients evenly. Add sugar, margarine, zest, blueberries, and milk and stir until everything is mixed. (If you use blackberries or raspberries- fresh are best. You can choose to use frozen, but they tend to break up and turn the scone red/purple.)

Flour a large dry surface and flatten out the dough. Work the dough into a ½ inch circle. Cut the dough like a pizza- that will give you a nice “coffee house” style cut for your scones.

Brush milk on tops of scones and sprinkle with sugar. Bake for about 13 to 15 minutes or until scones are a little brown on top.
