  • Author: School Night Vegan
  • Yield: 8 scones 1x


  • 1 t ground psyllium husks + 5 t water (or 1T flax seeds (ground) + 5 T water)
  • 265 g self-raising flour
  • 90 g granulated sugar
  • zest of 1 lemon, around 1 T
  • 1/2 t baking powder
  • 1/2 t flaky sea salt
  • 120 g vegan butter, use “block” style and freeze in advance
  • 160 g soy milk
  • 2 T lemon juice
  • 2 t vanilla extract
  • 180 g blackberries, fresh or frozen
  • 2 t granulated sugar


  1. Preheat the oven to 200c/390f (fan). Line a baking sheet with baking parchment.
  2. In a small bowl whisk together the ground psyllium husks/ground flax seeds with the water. Set aside to thicken into your “egg” mixture.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, lemon zest, baking powder, and flaky sea salt. Set aside.
  4. Using a box grater, coarsely grate the frozen vegan butter into a medium bowl. Transfer the grated vegan butter to the bowl of flour.
  5. Using a pastry cutter or two sharp knives, cut the butter into the flour mixture until you have a coarse, sand texture – almost like a fine crumble topping. Cover the bowl with a plate and place in the fridge while you prepare your wet ingredients.
  6. Place the soy milk, lemon juice, vanilla extract, and the thickened psyllium husk/flax seed “egg” mixture into the cup of a high-speed blender. Blend until completely smooth.
  7. Remove the bowl from the fridge and pour the blended wet ingredients over the dry. Using a spatula or wooden spoon, gently fold the ingredients together until you have a very rough shaggy dough – do not overmix!
  8. Add the blackberries and, for the last time, stir gently to incorporate.
  9. Scrape out the dough onto the lined baking sheet and use the spatula or wooden spoon to shape the dough into a circle. Use a knife or bench scraper to slice the circle into 8 even segments and separate them from each other slightly to allow room to rise. Sprinkle with the extra granulated sugar
  10. Place in the oven to bake for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown on top. Remove from the oven and allow to cool on a wire rack. If the scones have expanded and are now touching, wait until they’re cool and slice the scones apart.
  11. Serve with a nice cup of tea or coffee!
