Soft and fluffy, savoury Wholewheat Vegan Cheese Scones. Easy to make and great for Afternoon Tea, lunchboxes or just dunking in a bowl of warming soup! Perfect scones without the dairy and made with wholewheat goodness!
Weigh the flour into a mixing bowl and add the Bicarbonate of Soda before incorporating fully.Next add the dairy free margarine to the flour mixture and rub together with you fingertips until you have a breadcrumb like mixture.Next add the finely grated cheese, salt & pepper and stir until fully combined.
In a separate jug mix together the chilli sauce, olive oil and dairy free milk (if you have opted for the completely wholewheat version also add in the honey or golden syrup) Now for the messy bit - either use a spoon or you hands - its up to you! Add the wet ingredients into the dry and stir together until a soft dough is formed. Turn out onto a floured board and gently knead in more flour if its very sticky.
Roll or squash the dough flat and using a floured straight sided cutter cut out the scones. Push the cut straight down and DO NOT twist it!! I roll the dough out to about an inch and a half thick.
Bake on a preheated baking tray for 20-25minutes, until brown.
