Its Wednesday… Regular boring Wednesday. Lets spice it up a bit so the weekend dont seem so far away!:-)
Vegan chocolate spelt scones
Makes 6 scones
- 1 1/2 cup (225 g) Spelt flour
- 1/4 cup (30 g) Coconut palm sugar
- 1/4 cup/2 oz (55 g) Earth Balance (margarine)
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 2 oz (55 g) dark or semi sweet chocolate, chopped
- 2 Tbs apple sauce
- 1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar
- 1/2 cup (115g) rice milk
Turn the oven to 375. Prepare a baking tray with parchment paper or a nonstick slipmat.
Mix all the dry ingredients in a medium bowl. Using your fingers, crumble the Earth Balance into the flour till there is chunks of margarine in pea size. Only work the dough for a couple of seconds. Stir in the chocolate. Then put the bowl in the fridge.
Whisk together all the wet ingredients in a medium bowl.
Take the flour out of the fridge, and ad the wet ingredients. Just stir a couple of times with a wooden spoon till it almost comes together. Do not over mix!
Turn the dough out on a flour dusted table, and shape it into a disk. With a large knife, cut the disk into 6 wedges.
Transfer the scones to the baking tray, and spread out so theres about 2 inches between them. Brush with rice milk and sprinkle the scones with a bit of palm sugar.
Bake in the middle of the oven for about 22 min. Serve while they are still a bit warm:-)
