Lemon poppy seed scones – yes, the perfect breakfast treat. Full of flavour with a zip of lemon, these scones are best served with a warm cup of tea on a chilly day. Bonus part, they’re gluten free. Okay, let’s get baking!

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups of gluten free flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 4 teaspoons of poppy seeds
  • 1 tablespoon of lemon zest
  • 2 tablespoons of salted butter, frozen
  • 1/2 cup of yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons of agave
  • 2 tablespoons of lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon of vanilla
  • 2 teaspoons of soy milk

First, gather all of your ingredients and set the oven to 425 on bake.

Get out a baking sheet and cover it with a silicone mat.

Next, time to mix all the ingredients. Mix the first 4 and then zest the lemon. Mix well. Cut in the butter – I find the easiest way to do this is to grate it. That’s right, use your cheese grater and you’re good to go. Mix in the yogurt, agave, lemon juice and vanilla.

Once you’ve worked the dough just enough to mix, transfer it to the silicone baking mat. Form into a circle that’s about 1 inch thick.
