No Bee Scones !!

HONVEY Scones ( Non Honey ) Scones Gluten Free, Vegan , Nut and Coconut Free

Well its apparently March so that hails Spring

And here in the UK it also means Mothers Day Sunday 14th March

So then I’m thrown a Challenge by my Challenge Guru Sarah Jane at The Wellbeing Lounge for Mothers Day Afternoon Tea I try to oblige

When the words where uttered ‘Can ‘ we’ do Vegan Honey Scone ???’ that then goes hand in hand with the dilemma of honey !!!

Its not Vegan obviously πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

So time to get inventive and see whats available ( of course I could try my hand at vegan honey, but Dandelions are a little lacking in March )

So then was pleased to see that The Groovy Food Company had a Honey Flavoured Agave Syrup and Foodie Flavours have honey flavouring ……

Sorted Phew !!

So here you go my take on Honey Vegan Scones or HONVEY SCONES

The Beeless Scone !!!!

You heard it here first πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

All set for The gluten Free Vegan Afternoon Tea

All the Taste and Feeling of Spring and Summer with my take on a Vegan Honey Scone

You need a 5 cm / 2″ in cutter or even a 2 in glass will do


  • 500 g Gluten Free Plain Flour ( If not using your own blend I recommend Dove Farms freee UK or Pilsbury US )
  • 1 tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
  • 2 tsp Xanthan Gum
  • 1/2 tsp Cream of Tartar
  • 70 g Vegan Butter ( I used Stork Block UK or Earth Balance US )
  • 80 g Agave Honey Flavoured Syrup
  • ( or Agave Syrup and 1 tsp Vegan Honey Flavouring such as Foodie Flavours )
  • 80 g Unsweetened Apple Sauce ( I used Bramley apples but you can use baby food )
  • 4 tbsp Aquafaba ( Chickpea juice out of a tin on chickpeas )
  • 250 mls Non Dairy Milk ( I used Soya )
  • 2 tbsp Caster sugar
  • – To Dress Scones

  • 200 mls Dairy Free Double/ Heavy Cream Alternative ( I used Shalagfix )


  1. Preheat Oven to 200 C Convection / 220 C Standard / 425 F
  2. Line a baking tray with Parchment or Slipmat
  3. Whisk and then Sift the flour, Bicarb, Cream of Tartar ,xanthan gum, into a bowl
  4. Add small lumps of vegan butter to the flour mix, push them just under the surface and using your finger tips rub the fat in until it resembles breadcrumbs
  5. Whisk the Milk Apple sauce, Agave Syrup ( and Honey Flavouring if using ) and Aquafaba in a jug until slightly frothy
  6. Add half the the Milk mixture to the flour and with a metal knife pull the flour from the outside to the inside on the centre of the bowl until it is combined
  7. Add the rest of the milk and continue until the dough looks like below , mix until the last streaks of flour are gone, but do not over mix , lightly pull the dough into a ball with your hands
  8. When soft dough forms tip onto a lightly floured work surface , your dough should be slightly sticky divide into two equal lumps
  9. With LIGHTLY floured hands pull the dough together GENTLY until you can form a long rectangle the width of your 5cm (2in ) cutter and 3cm (3/4in for you old fashioned type πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚)in height and 27 cm long . You will get 5 out of this process
  10. Cut out and CAREFULLY transfer to the baking tray
  11. Repeat Step 9 with the second piece of dough
  12. Gather up the scraps and cut out one more if possible
  13. Brush the tops with milk lightly,
  14. Sprinkle with Caster Sugar πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆGUESS WHO FORGOT THE PIC πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ
  15. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes until golden
  16. Cool on a wire rack
  17. Enjoy on day of making or store in Tupperware at room temperature for 48 hours , but will freeze well for a month, defrost
  18. Enjoy
