Buttermilk Oat Scones - The Vegan Way

1 cup steel cut oats ( check the bulk bin or available packaged)

1 cup soy milk with 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar added (yes that is how to make vegan buttermilk)

1 and 1/4 cups whole wheat pastry flour

1 tablespoon organic sugar

2 teaspoons non-aluminum baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

1/3 cup dried currents

4 tablespoons non-hydrogenated margarine (I like Earth Balance)

cinnamon and sugar mixture for top if desired

Turn oven to 350. Spread oats on a cookie sheet and toast for 20 minutes, stirring a few times. You want them to change color slightly.

Add vinegar to soy milk.

After oats are toasted, place in a bowl and add soymilk and let soak for 20 minutes.

Then oil the cookie sheet lightly for the baking.

Raise oven temperature to 400.

Combine the flour and rest of the dry ingredients, mix well with a fork.

Then add the currents and stir to distribute through. Cut in the margarine using a pastry blender or two knives until the mixture has the consistency of coarse meal.

Stir in the soaked mixture.

Flour your hands and knead briefly into a ball (don't over mix).

Place the batter on the cookie sheet and press and shape into a rectangle or oval that is 3/4 inch thick.

If desired brush with a bit of soymilk and sprinkle a cinnamon and sugar mixture on top.

With a sharp knife score almost to the bottom into eight slices, the end ones may be curved a bit.

Bake for 12-15 minutes.

Cool in pan and separate. You may want to cut each one in half.

These are nice served with an all-fruit jam.

If you are limiting your sugar or baking for someone who is, this will satisfy a sweet tooth without much sugar.

Good for a brunch, casual entertaining or to take to a meeting.

We look forward to hearing from you
