How to make Lavender Blueberry Scones

  1. Start with preheating your oven to 400 degrees F. Prepare a large baking sheet with parchment paper. 
  2. In a large bowl, add the flours, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda and the salt. Gently whisk to combine.

3. Add in the cold butter and with your fingers or a pastry blender, cut the butter in the flours until it resembles coarse meal. With a rubber spatula, fold in the blueberries. 

4. Add in the almond milk, lavender syrup and maple syrup. Combine until moist. 

5. Place the scone dough on a lightly floured surface and knead about 3-4 times. Place the dough on the lined baking sheet and form into about a 6 or 7 inch large circle. Using a bench scraper, sharp knife or other pastry cutter, indent the dough into 8 equal portions (wedges) but not cutting all the way through.

6. Bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool.

7. In a separate bowl, make the glaze by adding 1/2 of the powdered sugar into a small bowl and add the almond milk.

Whisk until combined then add the remaining sugar. Pour over the scone wedges. Store leftover cooled scones in an airtight container on the counter for 2 days or in the fridge for up 3-4 days.

Helpful tips for these dairy free blueberry lavender scones

  • When recipe testing, I used 1 cup tapioca flour at first and 1/2 almond flour and 1/2 coconut flour. While this flour mixture tasted good, it had a chewy texture to it because of the tapioca flour. If you need to substitute, I suggest using gluten all purpose flour or all almond flour. 
  • A rolling pin helps spead out the dough ball. 
  • If the glaze isn’t runny enough, add a touch more almond milk. You can also enjoy these scones without the glaze if you are wanting to lower your carbs.
  • Use fresh blueberries and cold butter. I use the Country Crock Plant Based Butter with Olive Oil. I also like Earth Balance Vegan Butter but Country Crock comes in sticks making it easier fo baking.
  • Scones can be served at room temperature or reheated in the microwave for 30 seconds. 

Serving suggestions

Try adding a touch of lemon zest to the glaze.

You can make this recipe without the lavender or use culinary lavender.

If dairy isn’t an issue for you, you can replace almond milk with regular milk or heavy cream.

Garnish the top of each scones with dried flowers.

Recipe inspiration

This recipe is inspired by a Maple Date Scone recipe I learned from Cooking Light where they use minimal sugar. My twist is the blueberry lavender flavor combination and also making this recipe both dairy free and gluten free. I hope you enjoy this recipe!
