Orange-Zested Chocolate Chip Vegan Scones

  • Author: Chloe Coscarelli
  • Total Time: 35 minutes
  • Yield: 8 scones


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar, plus extra for sprinkling
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ cup refined* coconut oil
  • ½ cup almond milk, plus extra for brushing
  • 2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
  • Zest of 1 orange
  • ¼ fresh vanilla bean or vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup vegan chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 375 F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together 2 cups flour, 1/3 cup sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Cut in coconut oil using a pastry cutter, until the texture is crumbly.
  3. Add ½ cup nondairy milk, orange juice, zest, and chocolate chips, and mix with a wooden spoon. Do not over mix; the dough should be sticky and wet.
  4. Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface and liberally flour the top of the dough. Pat the dough into a circle (1″ thick).
  5. Cut the dough into 8 triangular slices. Transfer to the prepared baking sheet, leaving 2 inches between each slice. Brush the tops with nondairy milk and sprinkle with sugar.
  6. Bake for about 15 minutes, or until golden. Allow it to cool before serving.

Refined removes the coconut flavor. Unrefined works fine, just note that a coconut flavor may be added.
