I am sure you have heard me fully admit to the fact that I am not a baker. I have never really enjoyed baking; I would much rather cook. But I have a small problem… I have a bit of a sweet tooth. So while I don’t particularly want to bake, I do. You know, for the sake of my own tummy (my family doesn’t mind, either).
I’ve gotten much better at it in recent years and have actually enjoyed adapting recipes to match our clean eating lifestyle, and, more recently, our dairy-free lifestyle. Once you know a couple of tricks, it’s pretty easy to adapt recipes to fit your needs… unless you are avoiding sugar. In which case, good luck. No baked goods should be attempted without sugar.
After visiting a tea house with my daughter, sister and niece last month, I was reminded of how incredibly perfect scones are; especially when paired with afternoon, or morning, or any-time-of-the-day coffee. So when I returned home, I looked up some easy scone recipes and whipped some up sans dairy.
These are what transpired. They were pretty scrumptious with just the right amount of sweetness (thanks to a sprinkling of sugar and chocolate chips), and when you load them up with butter – well, yum.
If you need a good dairy-free scone recipe, or if you just need an easy scone recipe (feel free to add in dairy where necessary), then these really fit the bill. They lasted us a few days (one batch makes about 12-14 scones) and were great for a morning or afternoon snack.
