Quick Facts

Servings: 7
Prep Time: 35 min.
Cook Time: 20 min.
Total: 55 min.
The flaxseeds in these wholesome and hearty scones provide essential fatty acids and a rich, buttery flavor. If you can't find milled flaxseeds, grind up whole flaxseeds in your blender or food processor.

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup unsweetened dried cherries
  • 1/3 cup brandy
  • 2 1/2 cups spelt or whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 4 oz soft tofu
  • 1/4 cup safflower or canola oil
  • 1 Tbs fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 Tbs maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup milled flaxseeds

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350F (175C). In a small bowl, soften cherries in brandy for 30 minutes.
  • Sift flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder together in a medium bowl.
  • Combine tofu, oil, lemon juice, vanilla and maple syrup in a blender until smooth. Add blended ingredients, flaxseeds, cherries and brandy to flour mixture; stir gently until just mixed.
  • Using a floured rolling pin and cutting board, roll dough out into a circle 3/4-inch (2cm) thick. Slice dough into 8 wedges. Place on parchment paper on a cookie sheet and bake 20 minutes or until golden brown.
