Scones (Dairy free, vegan)

 

Ingredients:

 

300g oat flour

150g plain flour (gluten free flour can be used)

1 tsp. bicarb

1 tsp. ground cinnamon

1 tsp. ground nutmeg

200ml almond milk

200ml maple syrup

50g coconut oil, melted.  Plus extra for lining the muffin tray.

 

Method:

 

  • Preheat the oven to 180c. Oil a 12-hole muffin tray with coconut oil.

 

  • In a large bowl, mix together the flour, bicarb and spices. Once combined, add the maple syrup, coconut oil and almond milk and mix until a batter has formed.

 

  • Pour the mixture into the muffin pan and bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden (a knife inserted in the centre should come out clean, if not place back into the oven for 5 more minutes).

 

  • Once cooked, leave the scones to cool for at least 10 minutes in their tin to firm up, then transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling or serve warm

 

  • Serve with a big dollop of coconut yogurt and chia jam (see recipe below).
