Ingredients

SCONES:

  • 1 1/4 cups organic all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup organic rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup organic cane sugar
  • 2 tsps baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • Pinch of ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, frozen + grated (See Notes!)
  • 1 cup Dairy-free "Buttermilk", VERY COLD (Almond milk + 1 tsp lemon juice; You can also use dairy buttermilk!)
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 cups fresh blackberries
  • 1 cup chopped white chocolate (You can also use white chocolate chips)

BLACKBERRY GLAZE:

  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar, sifted
  • 2-3 Tbsps Almond milk 
  • 1 Tbsp blackberry preserves

OTHER:

  • 1 Egg wash (1 egg + 1 Tbsp milk beat together)

Instructions

MAKE THE SCONES:

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit and prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, add flour, oats, baking powder, sugar, cinnamon, salt and whisk until combined.
  • Add the grated butter (See Notes) into the dry ingredients and using a fork, mix together until it resembles “peas”.
  • In separate bowl, whisk together the dairy-free ‘buttermilk’ and egg, until combined and smooth. Pour wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix everything together using a spatula or your hands (working it together with one hand) until the dry ingredients are moistened and a ball can be created. NOTE: No need to create a ball just yet. You have to now add remaining ingredients.
  • Fold in chocolate chips and blackberries and gently press them into the dough. NOTE: This will be messy because of the blackberries.
  • Add the dough unto a floured surface, pat and shape dough into an 8-inch round circle. Using a very sharp knife (or pastry cutter), slice into 8 equal wedges (triangular shaped), dusting knife or pastry cutter with flour incase dough is on the stickier side.
  • Place each scone onto the prepped baking sheet and brush tops with a little egg wash. Bake for 13-15 minutes until tops are golden brown and the center comes out clean after inserting a toothpick.
  • Remove from the oven and let cool completely before adding glaze.

TO MAKE THE GLAZE:

  • Whisk together the powdered sugar, blackberry preserves, and almond milk, until combined and smooth. NOTE: If the glaze seems too thin, add in another 1/2 cup of powdered sugar. However, If it seems too thick, add an additional 1 Tbsp of milk.
  • Once cooled, drizzle the glaze atop each scone, and allow it to set for about 3-4 minutes so that it hardens.
  • Bon Appetit!

Notes

STORAGE: Leftovers can be stored in an air-tight container and refrigerated for 1-2 days for best taste. Reheat in the oven or microwave when ready to serve.
GRATED BUTTER: To grate your butter, add the stick to a freezer for 15 minutes. Remove from freezer and using a grater, grate into pieces.
