We caved and finally made some scones this morning in our toaster oven. As I’ve mentioned a few times and ya’ll are probably tired of reading it but we have packed our kitchen up almost 90%. Additionally I have completely cleaned the oven so we aren’t touching it now until we move. Ha-ha. Genki Husband has been craving homemade pastries though so I just had to make something for him. Scones are simple to put together, contains few ingredients, and can be made in a toaster oven. Our kitchen still has limited ingredients so this is what we had in stock – thankfully it turned out amazing! It was almost like a scone dough version of a bounty bar (veganized). If that weren’t enough of a selling point, it contains no oil or butter while still being fluffy/flaky!2 ½ c flour 1/3 c coconut shreds 1/3 c brown sugar 1/2 tbsp baking powder ½ tsp salt 1 ¼ c nondairy milk (I used unsweetened coconut milk) 2 tsp almond extract ½- 1 c chocolate chips or chunks 1 tbsp flaxseed, ground (optional) 1. Mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl. 2. Add the wet ingredients to the same bowl. 3. Mix together the entire mixture until it becomes a dough ball. 4. Grab orange-sized balls and place on a prepared pan. 5. Place in a preheated oven at 425F. Bake for 15-20 minutes. If using a toaster oven, it might take double the time to bake depending on your toaster oven. Bake until lightly brown on the bottom.
*Optional: Drizzle chocolate on top of the scones to make it even a bit more chocolaty if you have a sweet tooth.
