Apple Cinnamon Scones [vegan]

I’ve out done myself! These Apple Cinnamon Scones are too good not to share. I’m a big fan of a scone….and yes, I say scone as in s-cone not s-con, that may make me a bit posh, but it’s how it’s said..alright?!

I have mixed feelings about the recent clocks going back. I love the extra hour to catch up on some serious zzzzs….I mean, I’m not going to complain about that! I also love the cosy dark nights, curling up under a blanket on the sofa and Netflixing my way through autumn/winter (currently obsessing over Bloodline). But, I don’t like coming home from work in the dark, or battling the low light to take photos of recipes, such like the one below at 2pm!

I served these with some delicious strawberry jam and some coconut yoghurt – a perfect vegan alternative to cream. These also are so full of cinnamon apple flavours they taste pretty darn good on their own too!

Apple Cinnamon Scones
Makes about 9

50g dairy free margarine
100g self raising flour
150g spelt flour
25g caster sugar
1 tspn cinnamon
100g stewed apples (I used normal eating apples, so they held their shape once cooked)
150ml oat milk (alternative plant based milk)

  • In a mixing bowl, rub the margarine into the flours using your fingertips, until breadcrumb-like
  • Add the sugar and cinnamon and stir through
  • Add the stewed apples, along with the milk
  • Combine until a dough has formed (you may need to add a little more four of the mixture is quite wet, depending on your apples)
  • On a floured surface, gently work the dough so you can cut out the scones using a cutter (the trick here is not to handle the dough too much and to keep it quite thick so you have nice sizeable scones)
  • Cut out the scones, and place on a greased baking tray, brush with milk and sprinkle a little cinnamon on top
  • Place in the oven for 15 minutes at 210C
  • Leave to cool on a wire rack

Enjoy
