This a great recipe from my wife Julie Piatt. All 4 of our kids love these for breakfast, and they go great with jam or a vegan butter substitute. Alternatively, the scones are delicious served as a dinner roll with dishes such as vegan mashed potatoes and mushroom gravy, black bean vegan chili or vegetable soup. Give them a try and let me know what you think!
