The secret to making scones — whether vegan or not — is to use very cold butter, or, in this case, vegan margarine. Soy margarine works well in vegan scones, and make sure the chocolate chips you're using are dairy-free as well. Making homemade vegan scones is quite simple, as this recipe shows. Plus, they're homemade, egg-free, low-fat, and cholesterol-free.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups flour
  • 5 tbsp. sugar
  • 1 tbsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 6 tbsp. vegan margarine (cut into pieces)
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup soy milk
  • Egg replacer for 2 eggs

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Preheat the oven to 400 F.

  3. In a large bowl, combine the flour, 3 tablespoons of the sugar, baking powder and the salt.

  4. Cut in the vegan margarine.

  5. Stir in the chocolate chips.

  6. In a separate bowl, whisk together the soy milk and egg replacer.

  7. Combine with dry ingredients, and stir until dough forms.

  8. Place on a floured surface and knead a few times, then roll out into a circle about 2 inches thick. Slice like a pizza or a pie into 8 triangles.

  9. Place the triangles on a baking sheet and sprinkle with the remaining sugar.

  10. Bake 20 to 25 minutes until lightly golden.

Tip

  • Start with very cold butter. This will produce a better texture for the scone.
