vegalicious scones


My husband has been playing around with this recipe for the last month or so and it tastes so good ( he has made many variations of it from pumpkin scones to walnuts to cashews  to banana blueberry)  but this one, with pecans is one of our favourites.

heart shaped scones

3 cups of flour ( any flour you like, we have used 6 grains flour as well as spelt )
1 and 1/2 tablespoons  baking powder
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
2 cups of pecans
1/4 cup sugar ( we replaced it with 7-8 dates)
1 large banana
3 tablespoons of maple syrup
1 and 1/2 flax egg substitute
8 tablespoons of melted cacao butter

Put flour in mixing bowl with baking powder, cinnamon, salt, and vanilla.

Throw pecans in food processor to finely chop
Then add the pecans to the mixing bowl
Then put the banana, dates , and maple syrup in food processor  and mix together
Then add those to the mixing bowl

Get flax egg ready to add to mixing bowl

Add the melted cacao butter to the mixing bowl

scone mix

Mix well and work with hands


Lay on paper to roll out and cut into shapes


Lay on baking sheet


And bake in oven for about 15 minutes at 415 degrees
( this depends on your oven , watch scones carefully)


And enjoy 🙂

My husband likes to add a vegan glaze on top of his, I prefer mine without.


For the glaze in a small blender mix a handful of pecans with a couple of tablespoons of maple syrup and a dash of vanilla, salt, and cinnamon  and pour on top of scone ( this is for a small amount )
