Vegan Lemon Scones with Chia

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"These scones are lower in fat than standard recipes, vegan, and super full of lemony flavor! The chia seeds give it a texture similar to poppy seeds and add lots of omega 3s. The added perk is that it's a foolproof recipe. I've made this without even measuring everything exactly and they still came out great. Try adding blueberries or doubling the amount of lemon zest!"

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Combine whole wheat flour, oat flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, chia seeds, and white sugar in a bowl. Mix in coconut oil in until the mixture is crumbly. Stir in soy milk, 2 tablespoons lemon juice, and 2 tablespoons lemon zest until a dough forms.
  3. Transfer dough to a bowl and knead in bowl until workable, about 8 times. Gently roll into a ball and turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Press into a circle about 1 inch thick; cut into 10 wedges. Place scones onto prepared baking sheet.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until edges are lightly golden brown, 18 to 20 minutes.
  5. Mix confectioners' sugar, 1 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice, and 1 tablespoon lemon zest in a small bowl. Drizzle or spread frosting on top of scones while still warm.


  • Cook's Note:
  • I grind oatmeal in my blender to make my own oat flour. Glaze will be thick, but will become runny as soon as you use it on the hot scones. You'll only need a very little bit to cover the top surface of each.
  • Partner Tip
  • Reynolds® parchment can be used for easier cleanup/removal from the pan.

I made this recipe pretty nearly, but not quite. I changed the 1/4 cup white sugar to Organic Coconut Palm Sugar and enhanced the sweetness with 1 T Stevia/1 T xylitol. I also reduced the amou...

I made this recipe today and we (my 2.5 year old son and I) loved it! The lemon in the glaze was a bit overwhelming so I added a splash of vanilla but other than that, I didn't change a thing. T...

My kids loved these scones, and they are picky eaters! The texture is a little more crunchy than the usual suspects, due to the chia seeds and the flour. Leave some honey on the table, in cas...

So yummy! I was looking for a recipe that I could use some of my chia seeds in, and this one is just perfect for a breakfast treat or brunch. I just ground up some oats as the author suggested (...

I came across this recipe and surprisingly already every ingredient! Although, I did use Trader Joes Unbleached all purpose flour and orange zest instead of lemon. The combination of the Orange ...

Fantastic! I made these to take to a staff meeting and they were gone before the meeting was over. Loved the drizzle and lemon was sweet and tart. Chia was a great alternative to poppy seeds.

Made it minus the seeds so bomb.Thank you

Easy and yummy. Used coconut milk instead of soy and no frosting. Ground the chia seeds in my coffee grinder first- really like the texture theyprovide. Am making again and it's only been 2 days.

I will say I'm not a baker nor a vegan so I was pleasantly surprised when these came out great on my first try! I couldn't find oat flour at my grocery store so I subbed tapioca flour but follo...
