A step-by-step guide to making vegan chocolate chip scones

Ingredients to make the best vegan scones with chocolate chips

Get all your ingredients ready, as this vegan scone recipe comes together super fast.

First step. You have to mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl and check that there are no lumps of flour. The next step is to put the butter or whatever fat you will use; it can be vegan butter or coconut oil.

Second step. Mix well with your hands, being careful not to overheat the dough. We want little pieces of fat, vegan butter, or coconut oil to remain so that the vegan bread is flakey and delicious. You could also use a pastry cutter or a fork for this step.

Ingredients
  

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup vegan butter cold or coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup coconut cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips

To finish

  • 1 tablespoon turbinado sugar
  • coconut cream

Instructions
 

  • Mix the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt until everything is well integrated.
  • Cut the butter into small pieces or grate it with a vegetable grater. Add it to the powders and, with your hands, integrate it gradually. It should be the consistency of wet sand.
  • Add the coconut cream and vanilla and integrate all the ingredients very carefully not to mix over. Add the chocolate chips and mix.
  • On a tray lined with baking paper, empty the mixture and form a large disk about 8 inches in size. Varnish with coconut milk and sprinkle the sugar on top. Cut into several pieces and separate them so that they are in the form of triangles.
  • Bake for about 20-25 min. in a 300ºF oven. Until a toothpick comes out clean and the sugar on top begins to brown.

Notes

  • Use good chocolate. I use dark chocolate with more than 50% cocoa; it makes a difference.
  • HOW TO GRATE BUTTER. The trick to grating is super cold, almost frozen butter. I use vegan butter; if you can’t find or don’t use it, you can also use coconut oil in its solid state.
  • How do you store and freeze scones? You can freeze them before baking them or after baking. If you freeze them raw, shape them into triangles and put them on a baking sheet. Place the baking sheet in the freezer and transfer it to a bag when frozen. That way, you can bake them individually.
    To bake, let them sit on the countertop for 10 minutes and then bake from 10-12 at 300ºF.

When and with what scones are best?

You can serve them with whatever and whenever you want, at all hours, and have them with coffee, tea, or another drink. I love them in the afternoon with hot chocolate or a coffee with milk.

But if I drink them at night or serve them at a gathering of friends in the afternoon or after dinner, I love them with spiced wine.

Frequently asked questions

What can be used instead of egg in scones? With this recipe, you do not need to worry about substitutions; all the ingredients are measured and perfectly thought out, so you can completely forget about the eggs in these vegan chocolate chip scones.

What can I use instead of cream in scones? Coconut cream is a perfect substitution for heavy cream in scones. The amount of fat it has makes perfect scones.

Are eggs necessary in scones? No, they are not.

How do you store and freeze scones? You can freeze them before baking them or after baking. If you choose to freeze them raw, shape them into triangles and put them on a baking sheet. Place the baking sheet in the freezer and transfer it to a bag when frozen. That way, you can bake them individually.

What are scones?

A scone is a small, baked quick bread that is somewhat similar in texture and consistency to an American biscuit. A typical scone recipe will call for fat (butter or oil), flour, liquid, leavening agents (typically baking powder), and other ingredients such as sugar or spices.

Scone dough contains less liquid than pastry dough. The most common method of preparation involves cutting butter into dry ingredients and then adding milk or cream and eggs if desired.

The Best Vegan Scones

How to Make Them VEGAN? You can still make the best vegan scones ever with a little help from plant-based ingredients. I use vegan butter and coconut cream instead of heavy cream or other fat. If you can’t find vegan butter you can definitely substitute it with coconut oil.

These are the brands I usually use to make my vegan scones: Native Forest or Whole Foods.

💡SUPER GOOD KITCHEN TIP💡

If for some reason you can't find coconut cream, you can put a can of coconut milk upside down in the refrigerator for several hours. 

The cream will go to the top and all the liquid will stay at the bottom.

Open the can carefully and with a spoon scoop out the coconut cream. Do not throw away the liquid that remains at the bottom, you can use it to make coconut rice or a smoothie.
