Tender, moist Vegan Blueberry Scones with simple glaze are a wonderful addition to any breakfast or brunch! Better than Starbucks!
Scones can be pretty dry but that is not the case here. These vegan blueberry scones are incredibly moist, tender and just plain delightful. They taste a million times better than the ones at Starbucks, and are made with no animal ingredients!
These Vegan Blueberry Scones:
- Are made in 1 bowl
- Are moist & tender
- Have crumbly edges and a golden crunchy exterior
- Include a wonderfully simple glaze drizzle
- Have an abundance of blueberries!
How to make vegan blueberry scones:
First, preheat the oven to 400 degrees and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
Next, in a large bowl, add the flour, baking powder, ground flaxseeds, sugar and salt. Stir to combine.
Add the cold vegan butter and use a pastry cutter (or your hands if needed) until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Pour in the milk and vanilla, and stir until just combined. Then fold in the blueberries.
On a lightly floured surface, turn out the dough and knead it just a few times until it comes together. Flatten the dough into a circle, about 1 inch thick. Slice into 8 equal triangles with a pizza cutter or large knife.
Place the scones onto the prepared baking sheet, and bake for 22-26 minutes until golden brown on top.
Let the scones cool for at least 15 minutes before drizzling the glaze on top. The glaze is totally optional, you can leave it out if desired.
Can vegan blueberry scones be frozen?
Yes, you can freeze these scones after they cool if desired. I would leave the icing off if you are going to freeze them though.
Can you use frozen blueberries for these scones?
Yes, you can use frozen blueberries. Do not thaw frozen blueberries if using, but add them directly from the freezer to the dough. They still might make your scones a little blue but they will taste great! I especially like using those little frozen wild blueberries in scones.
Can blueberry scones be made gluten free?
I haven’t tried it myself, but I’m sure a good quality gluten free flour mix would work just fine. You can also substitute whole wheat pastry, spelt or white whole wheat flour for some or all of the white flour, if desired.

Vegan Blueberry Scones
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 tablespoon ground flaxseeds
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 8 tablespoons cold vegan butter (or solid coconut oil)
- 1/2 cup almond milk + more as needed
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 3/4-1 cup fresh blueberries (may use frozen as well)
- OPTIONAL: lemon zest from 1 lemon
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, ground flaxseeds, salt and sugar.
- Add the cold vegan butter, and use a pastry cutter or your hands to work the butter into the dry ingredients. It should resemble coarse crumbs.
- Pour in the milk and vanilla, and stir until just combined. If the dough seems too dry and crumbly, add up to another 1/4 cup of milk. Fold in the blueberries.
- On a lightly floured surface, knead the dough a few times until it comes together. Flatten the dough with your hands (lightly flour your hands if sticky). Flatten it into a circle, about 1 inch thick.
- Using a pizza cutter or large knife, cut it like you would a pizza, into 8 pieces.
- Place the scones onto the prepared baking sheet and bake for 22-26 minutes, until lightly golden brown on top.
Make the optional glaze:
- Combine the powdered sugar, milk and vanilla in a small bowl and whisk until smooth. If the glaze is too thick, add more milk. If too thin, add more powdered sugar.
- Let the scones cool for at least 15 minutes, then drizzle some of the glaze onto each scone. Let the glaze set before serving.
- May also use whole wheat pastry flour or white whole wheat flour. A gluten free flour mix would probably work, but I haven't tried it.
- You can sub the vegan butter with coconut oil that is hard. Cut it into the dry ingredients the same way.
