Really Good Vegan Raisin Scones

What you need: 

2 cups flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon turbinado sugar
1/4 cup margarine, softened
1/2 cup raisins
3/4-1 cup nondairy milk

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Mix dry ingredients together. Cut in margarine until crumbles form.
2. Stir in milk and raisins. Drop a spoonful (or make them into cute shapes, like the hearts I made this morning) onto an ungreased baking sheet.
3. Bake for about 10-12 minutes, or until just brown on top.
Source of recipe: I adapted these from a biscuit recipe on this website; I am sure one could play with the spices/ flavorings here. Please let me know how they turn out!

:)>>>  YUM-O
We normally make the ones from the Be-ro book, with earth balance.  Today my
hubby needed to make a vegan batch for a work do.  They were really terrific!
He used a combo of soy & almond milk.  We didn't have any turb sugar so used
reg sugar.  He had one very happy vegan at the in-service!  Thanks for a great
adaptation!  He was a bit concerned about all the baking powder, but they didn't
have that nasty aftertaste at all!


This recipe worked great for me the second time around.  I was more careful this time with the amount of soymilk, as I used frozen fruit.  The first time the dough was kind of too wet and was impossible to make shapes with it, and then the scones did not rise.... they tasted good, but like real scones.  This time they look, smell and taste like scones!!!  :D  I love them... I did not use raisins but frozen strawberries (the first time) and blueberries (the second time).  It is such an easy and quick treat!!! :)>>>


This was a really easy recipe to make and didn't require too many ingredients, which is nice on the wallet.
I halved the recipe and filled the middle of one with some jam before baking, and the others I topped with a little vegan sugar. They were delicious ,especially when dipped in my coffee, and quickly eaten! ;)b


I went to Whole Foods and bought a vegan scone.  It was so good. I thought there must be a good recipe on line.  So this is what I found and they were great!  I did used part white and whole wheat flour, craisins, walnuts, nutmeg, cinnamon, and vanilla.  Maybe I will put more flavor and spices in next time.  I don't know though.  If they taste too good, we'll eat too much and gain weight:)


These are super good..

I made some changes tho ;).. I used chopped up guava treats (guava puree w/ sugar and pectin formed into a little bar) instead of raisins, added 1/4 cup sugar (I made a 1 1/2 recipe) and added 1/2 teaspoon of yeast to make them rise a little more.. When they were done I spread a little guava jelly on top while they were still hot so it formed a glaze..

I am selling these at a bake sale tomorrow morning.. I hope everyone likes them, I know I do :D


Great recipe. These scones were are hit at my high tea party. :) I subbed half ww pastry flour with half white,  no raisins, and only used 3/4 cup almond milk. I baked them at 400 for 18 minutes. I formed them into 8 triangles that were probably about 1/2" in height and around 3 1/2 - 4 inches across. They didn't puff up  or expand too much (just enough though), so I think I'll make them a little thicker next time.


HOLY MOLY! i have never eaten a scone, vegan or not, and these things are GREAT!  i added choco chips to half the batch, and they are so hearty and lightly sweet, great for breakfast on the run. 

Thanks so much!


this recipe would have been absolutely fantastic if i'd have remembered to add the sugar. they came out more like biscuits than anything. but good biscuits. i'll be sure next time to be fully awake when i make them, i'm sure they'll be great.


I didn't like these because they tasted too much like biscuits. Silly me, 'cos the recipe poster even mentioned that the recipe is based on a biscuit recipe. My fault!
Just keep that in mind before you make them. They're very thick & flour-y.


I just made these, and they turned out pretty well. I used huckleberries..the only negative thing is that there is a bitter aftertaste/taste..I don't know if it's from the huckleberries or time I'll try some different additions!  :)
