Summery Vegan Lemon Scones

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 20 - 25 minutes

Scones are a great treat for any kind of weather, but lemon adds a taste that's perfect for summer. This recipe needs only a few ingredients, and can be easily modified for all types of flavors.

Like all scones, these also go well served with tea or coffee.


  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 cup and 1 tablespoon soy or almond milk [for an added coconut taste, substitute for coconut milk]
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar [most types of sugar can be used]
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons lemon zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Optional ingredients:

  • 1 cup berries
  • Coconut shavings


  1. Preheat your oven to 430 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Combine ingredients into a large bowl. Mix the flour, sugar, and any additional ingredients together.
  3. Add the soy milk into the bowl. Continue to mix until just combined, be careful not to over mix!
  4. Place the ingredient mix onto a pre-floured surface. Gently fold until the dough isn't sticky, and has a generally even texture. 
  5. If needed, add extra flour and continue to fold. However, be careful no to over do this step, this will make the dough too tough.
  6. Place the dough onto a sheet of parchment paper. Shape it into a circle [approximately 9-10 inches in diameter].
  7. Using a knife, cut through the dough from end to end. Repeat this step four times, this should leave you with 8 separate slices.
  8. Brush the dough with the additional tablespoon of soy or almond milk. Sprinkle on a pinch of additional sugar. Additional lemon zest or coconut shavings can also be used.
  9. Bake the scones for 20 - 25 minutes on the top rack of your oven. When ready, insert a toothpick into the center of one of the scones. If it comes out clean, they're finished. 
  10. Serve your scones warm with jam, jelly or your favorite spread.
