Let’s put our hands up for fall! And by fall, I mean all things apple and cinnamon. Is there a better combo?! I think not. It is hands down (or hands up…) one of my favorite flavor combinations. I could not let this season go by without another creation. So here we are, in fall paradise, with vegan gluten free apple cinnamon scones. Drizzled with cinnamon glaze you won’t be able to resist!
Truth be told, it was the glaze that came to fruition first. I was playing around in the kitchen and created this incredible cinnamon glaze that I couldn’t stop eating. And it hardens like real glaze too! So of course I needed to make something that it could be drizzled on…since simply licking glaze off a spoon all day was a little weird. Or maybe not, but it did need a home that wasn’t my tongue. Vegan gluten free scones have been on my to do list, and this was the perfect time. Oh and did I mention no oil or butter? Yep, take a peek and see what I cut into the dry ingredients!
Getting the perfect scone texture is a tough one to crack when you aren’t using butter or eggs. Everyone is different with how they like their scones, so I went with our favorite: dense, moist with a hint of dry. Not the kind of dry that you need a drink after the first bite, but the kind of dry that makes you think scone. A big part of this magic is the combination of ingredients I use. Oat flour for density, a little touch of coconut flour to help with the hint of dry and give a nice crisp outside, and my favorite Silk products to help with moisture, along with a few other whole food ingredients.
For this vegan gluten free scones recipe, I decided to use the Silk unsweetened organic soy milk. It has a touch more fat than my usual go to cashew. But not too much. If you can’t have soy, then the Silk coconut would be another good alternative as it has the same fat makeup. My husband is not a coconut fan though, so when I can, I try and use something else. Plus we aren’t allergic to soy and I personally believe soy in moderation is perfectly fine. If you want a great read on the whole soy debate, check out my friend Alisa’s post. I bet you will find some info you didn’t know!
