Hello, my friends! I have a treat for you today, and just in time for Easter brunch (and Mother’s Day brunch!), too – a recipe for Vegan Strawberry Scones. Aren’t they pretty? :)
There’s nothing quite like a freshly baked scone, in my opinion, and these do not disappoint. :)
Since tis the season for strawberries, it only made sense to add a pop of color and flavor in the form of my favorite red fruit. So obsessed with berries right now!
These scones were kept vegan thanks to Almond Breeze almond coconut milk in place of regular milk and coconut oil in place of butter. I also amped up the nutrition with whole wheat pastry flour (softer and less dense than regular whole wheat flour) instead of white flour. You won’t notice the difference, I promise. :)
See below for the recipe! It’s easy as can be.
