Vegan scones are delicious breakfast treats that feel fancy but are ready in less than 30 minutes! Fluffy, soft, and totally customizable with add-ins like berries and nuts, this will be your new favorite brunch option.


  • 1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 TBS brown sugar, packed
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 TBS ground flax (+ 5 TBS water for two "flax eggs")
  • 1/3 cup dairy-free yogurt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 1/2 TBS coconut oil, softened but not melted
  • Vegan butter, jam, honey, or agave for serving


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and lightly oil or parchment-line a baking sheet. In a large bowl, mix together flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

  2. In a smaller bowl, combine flax and water and let rest for a couple minutes (this is your egg replacement). Add yogurt, vanilla, and coconut oil. Pour wet mixture into dry and gently combine until crumbly but cohesive.

  3. On a lightly floured surface,  shape the dough into a disk. Place dough on baking sheet and cut into 6 pieces, while maintaining the circle. Separate the pieces slightly so that they will bake through the center.

  4. Bake for about 20 minutes until golden and firm The bottoms will bake quickly so be sure to check carefully. Remove sheet from oven, carefully take off scones, and let cool on a wire rack. Serve with toppings of choice.


To make this recipe gluten-free, substitute all purpose flour for finely ground out flour.
