Orange Ginger Chocolate Scones

What do you do on a snow day?

Me? Stay in my pjs and bake! (and read, watch a good show, all the best things.)

This was my first attempt at scones and they were amazing! There's just something so homey about an orange/ginger/chocolate pastry, so those are the flavors I combined. 

They were slightly softer than any other scone I've had, but my husband preferred it. 

I'll use this recipe again for him, but I'm going to try my hand at a sconier scone at some point.


2 1/4 cups unbleached flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp ground ginger
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
8 tbsp cold vegan butter
1 egg (or 1 tbsp flax seed meal with 2 tbsp warm water)
Zest of 1 orange
Juice of 1 orange
All-natural chocolate chips
Oat milk (as needed)

1 cup organic powdered sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tbsp oat milk

Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl with a whisk. Once combined, create a hole in the middle of the mixture and add your egg, orange zest, orange juice, and spices.

Next, add the butter, chocolate chips, and the oat milk and mix with your hands. (You can use a pastry blender to start.)

The dough will be slightly stiff, but still moldable. It shouldn't be sticky. If it is, add some more flour.

Roll out on a prepared surface and form into a log, about 1 1/2 inches thick. 

Cut the log into triangles and place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Bake at 350°F for about 23 minutes. (Check during the bake; you may need to rotate.)

These were incredibly yummy, clean, and only took about 10 minutes to prepare. 

Aaron is already telling me to "make like 20 more."

Try out the recipe and tell me what you think!
