The secret to making scones - whether vegan or not - is to use very cold butter, or, in this case, vegan margarine. Soy margarine works well in vegan scones, and make sure the chocolate chips you're using are dairy-free as well. Making homemade vegan scones is quite simple, as this recipe shows. Plus, they're homemade, egg-free, low-fat and cholesterol free.

What You'll Need

  • 2 cups flour
  • 5 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 6 tbsp vegan margarine, cut into pieces
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup soy milk
  • Egg replacer for 2 eggs

How to Make It

Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, 3 tablespoons of the sugar, baking powder and the salt. Cut in the vegan margarine. Stir in the chocolate chips.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the soy milk and egg replacer. Combine with dry ingredients, and stir until dough forms.

Place on a floured surface and knead a few times, then roll out into a circle about 2 inches thick.

Slice like a pizza or a pie into 8 triangles.

Place the triangles on a baking sheet and sprinkle with the remaining sugar.

Bake 20-25 minutes until lightly golden.
