Orange Chocolate Chip Scones

Prep Time:  15 – 20 min   ~   Bake Time:  12-15 min

Preheat oven to 350º F.


  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. orange zest
  • 1 C. unbleached flour
  • 1/3 C. vegan butter
  • 1/3 C. vegan sugar
  • 1/2 C. orange juice
  • 1/2 C. vegan chocolate chips (try using orange-chocolate bars, chopped, for extra zing)

Mix together the flour, baking powder and orange zest (fresh finely grated orange rind). Add a little more zest for more orange flavor.

In a separate bowl, mix vegan butter (room temperature), vegan sugar, orange juice and chocolate chips. Stir  flour gently into liquid mix and form into one large ball (adding enough flour so it is not too sticky ), then flatten the ball out on a flour-dusted cutting board.

Cut into sixths or eighths and put on a cookie sheet (silpat underneath if you have one).

Bake for about 12- 15 min., until lightly browned.  Remove and enjoy!
