Vegan Lemon-Blueberry Scones
This recipe from Rob Blum, owner of Knead Bakery in Burlington, Vermont, was adapted for the March/April 2019 issue of fresh. Swapping coconut oil for traditional butter and a "flax egg" (a mix of water and flaxseed) for eggs makes this scone totally vegan, and absolutely delicious.
2 Tbsp. water
1 Tbsp. ground flaxseed
2 cups (10 oz.) all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 cup coconut oil (solid, not melted)

  • Servings:Makes 6 scones
  • Prep Time:15 minutes
  • Cook Time:20 minutes
1. Place a rack in upper-middle of oven and heat to 350 degrees.
2. Stir water and flaxseed in a small bowl and let sit 5 minutes. In a large bowl, whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add coconut oil and mix with hands until oil is incorporated and broken into pea-size pieces. Whisk flaxseed mixture until smooth and add to bowl with dry ingredients.
3. Add non-dairy milk, blueberries, and lemon zest and use hands to gently fold mixture until no dry flour remains and dough forms a loose ball.
4. Turn dough out onto a heavily floured counter and roll or pat into a disk about 3/4" thick. Cut disk in half, then cut each half into thirds to form six triangles.
5. Transfer dough to a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake until scones are firm to the touch and bottoms are light golden brown, about 20 minutes. Meanwhile, stir together lemon juice and confectioners' sugar in a small bowl until smooth to make a glaze.
6. Transfer baking sheet to a wire rack and let scones cool 10 minutes. Drizzle with lemon glaze and let set before serving, about 5 minutes.
