This deliciously flaky recipe for Vegan Scones with wild blueberries are a tasty weekend breakfast or for an afternoon snack. As the weather starts to cool down, we start baking a whole lot more and baking these wild blueberry scones are just the thing to welcome the fall.
Making this recipe for Vegan Scones is a simple 4 part process.
Step #1: Mix the Flours, Sugar and Powder!
Using a large mixing bowl, you’re going to whisk the flours, sugars and powders. Mixing these beforehand ensures that
Step #2: Use a Pastry Blender to Avoid Warming Up the Dough
You want to touch the dough as little as possible to avoid warming up the dough. Using a pasty blender keeps it. Then, using a pastry blender, cut in the chilled coconut oil and mix ingredients until combined and crumbly.
Then, you’re going to add the coconut cream, maple syrup, lemon zest (if using) and lemon extract. Again, use the pastry blender, combine again until a soft dough begins to form, approximately 3-5 minutes.
Step #3: Fold in the Frozen Wild Blueberries
Fold in the frozen blueberries as best as you can to make sure they are fully integrated into the dough. Then, gently pat the dough into a large circle about 1 inch thick. Don’t forget to pre-slice the scones into 8-10 wedges pieces using an oversized knife. Sprinkle the dough with the 2 tablespoons of coconut sugar.
Step #4: Bake and Drizzle in Coconut Sugar/Almond Mixture
For a sugar glaze — combine 1/2 cup coconut sugar with 1-2 tablespoons almond milk and drizzle.
Simple enough and oh so delicious. This recipe for Vegan Scones is easy, quick and a perfect weekend dinner.

So, if you are looking for a breakfast with optimum nutrition, scones are not typically what I would recommend. However, these cleaned up wild blueberry scones are definitely bursting with nutrients.
By using a combination of nutritious and gluten free flours (almond flour and cassava flour), substituting coconut oil and coconut cream for dairy cream and butter and using just a wee bitty bit of unrefined coconut palm sugar, I was able to pull together a recipe for Gluten Free Scones that really does taste pretty darn amazing.
Wild Blueberries are the Best Blueberries
Small but mighty, wild blueberries have a very high total antioxidant capacity (ORAC). In fact, wild blueberries are higher than almost all of the typical fruits and vegetables you see at the grocery store.
Compared to cultivated blueberries, wild blueberries have a considerably higher ORAC value. The higher the ORAC value of a food the more powerful that food is at slowing the aging process, fighting disease, reducing inflammation and preserving health.
Why Buy Wyman’s Wild Blueberries?
Wyman’s wild blueberries are the only blueberries we trust here at Clean Cuisine. Within hours of being picked, Wyman’s sorts and cleans their wild blueberries using state-of-the-art technology. This method preserves flavor, quality and antioxidant goodness.
Frozen wild blueberries taste great and once thawed, they can be used just like fresh wild blueberries for a number of different recipes. Wyman’s are available in a number of local grocers – check the frozen aisle.
Why Wild Blueberries in Blueberry Scones
I stumbled on wild blueberries a few years back and have been hooked ever since. In comparison to conventional cultivated blueberries, wild blueberries pack a much bigger nutrient punch (they are loaded with antioxidants!) and their small size makes them much better for baking because they don’t fall apart.
It is pretty hard to find fresh wild blueberries though, so I suggest you go with frozen. Wyman’s frozen wild blueberries are the ones I use and they are available nationwide.
Oh! And I would definitely suggest eating your scone with black tea. There’s just something about tea that makes everything about scones better.
The Healthiest, Cleanest Baking Dish
As you know, here at Clean Cuisine we love eating clean AND using non-toxic cookware in the kitchen. We love unglazed stoneware because that’s all it is, unglazed, uncoated stoneware that is pure and clean to bake with. Our favorite baking sheet is this large bar pan from Pampered Chef.
You could also use my personal favorite is a stoneware pizza stone. It works great to spread out the scone dough into a big circle.

*Both the coconut cream and the coconut oil must be chilled to make the flaky English texture to this recipe for Vegan Scones.
Coconut Cream: This is the thick, rich and non-watery part of canned coconut cream. To get the “cream” you need to refrigerate your coconut milk for 5 or 6 hours or pop it in the freezer for at least an hour. Once the coconut milk is cold, carefully remove the top with a can opener and use a spoon to scoop out the hardened coconut “cream” off the top. The “cream” is what you will be using for the Blueberry Scone recipe. You can reserve the liquid water for other smoothies.
