Vegan Wholewheat Walnut Sage Scones with Maple Glaze

These tasty scones or biscuits were perfect. We enjoyed them as a mid afternoon snack with tea. They would also make a lovely brunch. They’re slightly sweet yet, not too much so, crunchy from the walnuts and the hint of sage adds depth.

Yield: 4 scones

Ingredients:

for the scones:

  • 1/2 AP flour
  • 1/2 cup wholewheat flour
  • 1/8 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon sage, dried or minced fresh
  • 4 tablespoons vegan margarine, cold
  • 1/2 cup toasted walnuts, chopped
  • 1/4 cup soy milk
  • 1/4 cup soy yogurt

for the maple glaze:

  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon soy milk or soy yogurt

Directions:

to make the scones:

  1. Heat the oven to 425 F.
  2. Chop and toast the walnuts in a dry frying pan. Be careful to stir them and not to let them burn. When they are light golden brown, remove from the frying pan.
  3. Place in a large mixing bowl, the 2 flours, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar.
  4. Add the vegan margarine in small chunks.
  5. Using a fork or your hands blend the margarine into the dry ingredients. The texture will resemble sand.
  6. Add the walnuts and sage and mix.
  7. Add the soy milk and soy yogurt and blend to a soft dough.
  8. Place the dough on a lightly floured surface and need or fold 2-3 times to make an even consistency.
  9. Form the dough in a circle.
  10. Put the dough on a parchment lined cookie sheet.
  11. Using a sharp knife, cut the circle in fourths.
  12. Bake the scones in the oven for 20 minutes or until lightly browned and firm to the touch.

meanwhile make the glaze:

  1. Place the powdered sugar in a small bowl.
  2. Add 2 tablespoons of maple syrup and stir to blend.
  3. If the mixture is too thick, add a bit more maple syrup.
  4. Add the 1 teaspoon of soy milk or soy yogurt to make it smoother and creamy.
  5. In general it is a thick glaze.
  6. When the scones are done, remove from the oven and allow to slightly cook.
  7. Drizzle the glaze over the tops and serve warm.

  1. These look so unbelievably delicious – I love the addition of sage to it. ^^ I think I’ll add some of my oatmilk yogurt to it to go with the nuttiness as well.
