Let's Bake - Vegan, Gluten-free currant and silvered almond scone!

Yes, I mean "bake", literally. I cook a lot but I don't really bake. 


Why? 


Cause' the time it takes me to bake one thing, I can do stir-fry, grill and deep-fry a lot of stuff and everything will be ready for a whole meal for my family.  There is no time for me to knead the dough and measure every ingredient. {Oh, well, maybe just because I didn't bake enough. This I assume will lead us to the discussion of chicken come first or eggs come first. blah~~}


Anyhow, after I ate my friend, Yu's, homemade steel-cut oats with currant scones for two days in a roll, I am hooked. I decided to bake my own version of Vegan, gluten-free scone. It's not that I have celiac disease (link here) but I am sensitive to wheat, thus, I have been eating 90% gluten-free diet for some time.


Here is the recipe I searched online and adapt it a bit for my convenience. 

Vegan, Gluten-free, no diary, no eggs, no refined sugar currant, and sparingly silvered almond scone. 

  • 1 1/2 tbsp flaxseed + 4 tbsp water (soak and set aside) 
  • 1 1/2 cups GF all purpose flour blend
  • 1/2 cup almond meal/flour
  • 1/4 cup almond, coconut, rice, or soy milk
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil in solid form 
  • 1/3 cup coconut palm sugar (low glycemic index score)
  • (optional) slivered almonds



First, you need to blend the coconut palm sugar and coconut oil together. Then mix all the dry ingredients altogether. Then use a stand mix or hand knead the dry ingredients into coconut sugar and oil mixture in two parts. As you know the texture should be coarse and look like cookie dough before you roll them out and cut them in either round or triangle shapes. 


PS. Don't forget enter yourself to my GIVEAWAY of $150 worth Tatcha beauty product. They are amazing!!

Summer is for baking!
