Vegan cinnamon buttermilk scones with a maple glaze in under 30 minutes!




  • 1 cup nondairy milk + 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup cold vegan butter
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup

Maple Glaze:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar, sifted
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 1/2 tbsp oat milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 375 F. In a small mixing bowl, combine the nondairy milk and vinegar and set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon and whisk to combine. Using a box grater or cheese grater, grate in the vegan butter. Use your hands to mix it with the flour until it makes a crumbly mixture. Don’t feel the need to over-mix.
  3. Add the nondairy milk mixture and maple syrup. Stir until just combined, then knead about 3-4 times in the bowl.
  4. Turn out dough onto a clean work surface, then shape into a round disc about 1 inch thick. Cut into 4 wedges, then cut each in half, making 8 wedges.
  5. Place on your sheet pan and bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes, until golden brown on the bottom and just starting to brown on the top.
  6. Meanwhile, whisk together maple glaze ingredients until combined. Set aside.
  7. Remove from oven and let cool slightly. Drizzle glaze overtop, then enjoy!
