The 'Minimalist Baker' blog recently published a recipe for making simple blueberry scones. For many vegans, finding baked goods that are made without animal products can be a difficult task. These delicate scones provide a DIY alternative for when there are no vegan-friendly options available.
The simple blueberry scones are made from a combination of plant-based ingredients such as coconut oil, unsweetened almond milk and flaxseed meal. The batter is then thickened with a combination of spelt flour and unbleached all purpose flour, which helps to keep the scones light and airy. To enhance the taste of the blueberries, the batter is then finished with fresh rosemary. The end result is a bakery-style scone that toes the line between sweet and savory.
The recipe is perfect for vegan consumers or those who are simply looking for a healthy alternative to store-bought pastries.
