Have you been craving scones recently, but you’re not sure whether or not they’re suitable for vegans? Well, you’ve come to the right place – keep reading to have your questions answered.


Scones are leavened baked goods that can be made either sweet or savoury. When sweet, it’s a key component of a cream tea loaded with jam and vegan cream and accompanied by a pot of tea.

Scones can be flavoured with anything from dried fruit or vegan cheese and herbs.
