Easy Blueberry Almond Scones

"Inspired by Lalalous's recipe #371363, this simple scone recipe is so easy, you can make it in the morning before work! Raspberries work well, too - use almond extract if you're using rapberries! I use frozen berries (the individually frozen kind, not the kind in syrup) for these, and I like my berries, so my scoop of berries is more like a heaping 1/2 cup!"

Ready In:
4 Scones




  • Preheat the oven to 220°C/425°F.
  • In a bowl mix together flour, oats, baking powder, sugar and vanilla powder (if using vanilla extract, add with milk). Add oil and stir to combine.
  • Fold in blueberries and almonds.
  • Add milk (and vanilla extract) and stir to combine. If it is too sticky add more flour, if it is too dry add some more milk.
  • Pat out dough on a floured surface and cut or shape scones of desired size. I often shape dough into a large circle, and cut into triangles for a traditional shape.
  • Place on a paper-lined baking sheet and bake for about 15 minutes until baked through and golden brown.

  1. Sooooo Goooood! Life doesn't get easier or better than this scone recipe! I made it with whole wheat pastry flour and almond milk and it was absolutely perfect! It was super easy and only used one bowl! I'm looking for recipes to make during summer vaction where we'll be staying in a rental condo. This is going to be perfect. I can see making the basic recipe with variations on the fruit every day. For me they baked up moist and delicious with just 1/3 cup milk. LOVE THIS RECIPE!
  2. Great scones!!! I made 1/2 of the recipe, but when I decreased serving size it left the whole amount of oats, so mine had extra!! I did have to add some more flour as it was too wet with the 1/4 cup of milk. I loved the combination of the oats, almonds and blueberries!! Thanks for sharing another wonderful scone recipe. Made for Stars Tag.
  3. After falling in love with English scones, I have been hesitant to try to make them. This was my first attempt and I have to say they turned out very good! They didn't taste like ones I have had in England, and I'm not sure why, but they were yummy!!! I didn't have a problem with them being dry. In fact my batter was rather wet. I plopped it down on a baking tray and attempted to separate it into traditional triangles before I baked. I sprayed a butter knife with non-stick spray separated them into 4 triangles. Time was exact and I can't wait to make these again! Thanks for the great recipe!!!
  4. I've never made scones and I don't think I've ever eaten them before either so this was totally new to me :) I used about 3/4 cup regular flour and 1/4 cup ww flour and used vanilla extract as I've never heard of vanilla powder. They were quite easy to put together and smelled great as they were baking. They were a little dry plain but great with a touch of butter! I didn't really taste the almond too much so I think I'll skip them next time. I think I'll try it with raspberries too!
  5. Except we were missing vanilla, and adding a little cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove; in addition substituted sugar for honey!<br/>This came out perfect, my first attempt at Scones and this recipe was so simple!<br/>I also used almond milk and whole wheat flour.<br/><br/>Thank you!


I'm a now vegan who used to make one heck of a souvlaki. I love cooking, I was a huge fan of Moosewood and Molly Katzen prior to going vegan (although that has nothing to do with my choosing the name Katzen - that's just what my German Grandma has called me all my life.) Aside from cooking, I also love scuba diving, cycling, politics, and reading.
