Berry Scones

Where are the scones lovers?! I have to be sincere with you… I had never tasted a regular or coffee/pastry shop scone. I had always seen them show-window but never eat one because they are too high in sugar, fat and they are not vegan. But I have seen many flavours like orange with cranberry, blueberry or plain. I also noticed that they have sugar on top.

Scones are another ideal sweet treat to enjoy with a cup of coffee just like a strudell, cinnamon roll or pie. I did these vegan scones with the guide of The Minimalist Baker’s Coconut Oil Blueberry Scones with Rosemary. I adapted her recipe to the ingredients I had available and to my likes. These scones are sweetened with organic agave and have approximately 8g of sugar per serving. The blend of berries make them more juicy and the fresh rosemary leaves taken from the garden added a fresh and special flavor and aroma.

You can enjoy these scones with more fruits, yogurt, with a drizzle of your favourite nut butter (I did it with Pistachio Spread) or cut it into half and spread a nut butter also. Enjoy them with your quality time at home with coffee or milk.
