Breakfast, Recipes | November 1, 2017 | By

Nothing says fall quite like cinnamon-apple-anything. That’s why I wrapped the season up into one bite-sized treat; these Vegan Cinnamon Apple Scones. Perfectly flaky, subtly sweet, and oh-so-delicious.

Apple Scones, For The Win!

First of all, these are hands-down my favorite scones I’ve ever made.

No joke!

These babes are:

  • Flaky
  • Crispy
  • Crunchy
  • Chewy
  • Ooey
  • Gooey
  • Deliciousness

How is that possible?

It’s all about the dough, baby!

I learned, through plenty of trial and error, that scone dough should be flaky and falling apart.. If that’s the kind of scone you’re looking for!

Furthermore, it’s almost a requirement for the butter to be solid. I’ve made scones with melted oil before and it results in a scone seriously lacking crumb.

What does this mean?

Your final product is going to be delightfully crunchy, but oh-so-soft on the inside. These apple scones are crumb central, baby!

Apple Scones for Any Time of the Day

You’ve heard me say it before, but I’m gonna say it again!

Fuck overly sweet desserts-disguised-as-breakfast!

~ This Dude Right Here

These apple scones are the perfect balance of sweetness.. Thanks to the apples!

That being said, if you are craving a dessert scone, simply sprinkle with sugar before baking.. I won’t judge!

Regardless, we ate these babes for breakfast and dessert. Who says we have to play by the rules!?
