There was no baking that Sunday

The past weekend was shot, but the week managed to yield some good. The recipe comes from Vegan with a Vengeance, with a few tweaks here and there:

Chocolate Chip Chai Scones

3 cups flour
2 Tablespoons baking powder
2/3 cup sugar
1 tsp salt
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 and 1/4 cups Coconut milk
1 Tablespoon Chai tea powder
Chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 400 °F
Heat the coconut milk in the microwave until it's warm (about a minute) and add the chai powder. Stir well and set aside to cool.
In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar.
Add the oil and coconut milk chai- make sure that the mixture is cool - to the dry ingredients.
Add the chocolate chips and mix until just combined.
The resulting dough will be somewhat sticky, dust with a scant amount of flour before forming the scones- or drop the dough by the 1/4 cupfuls onto a greased cookie sheet.
Brush the tops of the scones with coconut milk and sprinkle with sugar.
Bake for 12-15 minutes, until firm and slightly golden.

Yeilds 16 scones (or 8 large monstrosities, as I prefer)

Those look delicious, rich and tasty! I've never tried a vegan scone recipe - only muffins and cookies. I'm going to add this to my list of recipes for try.

These were incredible. The chai and the coconut melded so well together!
