Equipment

  • baking sheet
  • Mixing bowls
  • measuring cups and spoons

Ingredients

  • 2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1 Tbsp ground flax seeds
  • ¼ tsp kosher salt
  • ½ cup coconut sugar
  • 1 Tbsp fresh thyme leaves
  • 8 Tbsp vegan butter cold
  • ½ cup almond milk + 1 Tbsp divided
  • 1 ½ tsp vanilla extract divided
  • ½ cup dried figs chopped
  • ½ cup vegan white chocolate chips
  • cup walnuts chopped
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • ½ tsp ground cardamom

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 °F.
  • In a large mixing bowl combine flour, baking powder, flax seeds, salt, coconut sugar, and thyme.
  • Cut the vegan butter in and use a fork or pastry cutter to cut into the dough until a rough sandy texture forms.
  • Pour ½ cup almond milk and 1 tsp of vanilla extract into the flour mixture and mix. As the dough starts to come together add in the figs, white chocolate, and walnuts. I started using my hands at this point to bring the dough together. The dough will seem dry but keep mixing and it will come together into a stiff dough.
  • On a parchment-lined baking sheet form the dough into a circle that is 1” thick.
  • Using a pizza cutter or large knife cut the dough into 8 wedges like pizza slices and move scones 1 inch apart for baking.
  • Bake scones for 20-24 minutes until light golden brown.
  • Let scones cool for 15 minutes before serving.
  • While the scones are cooling combine the powdered sugar, ground cardamom, 1 Tbsp almond milk, and ½ tsp vanilla extract in a small mixing bowl to make the glaze.

Notes
