Vegan scones with chocolate, orange and amaretto
Still no rating, be the first!

We love to nibble on sweets, but are cautious about the amount of sugar included, so we like turning to scones. Those only need a relatively small amount of sugar and we always have all the ingredients with us.

Today, I wanted to create a new type of scones for the upcoming week. In the past days, we already had some with coconut flakes and orange zest. You were hardly able to taste the coconut flakes, unless you bit on some. Today, I left out the sprinkles, and instead added amaretto to the dough: and voila, the vegan scones with chocolate, orange and amaretto were created. Not only is the subtle amaretto aroma convincing, the not too sweet taste is wonderful

If you like, you can substitute real amaretto with amaretto syrup, such as this one: Monin amaretto ayrup. In our bottle rack at home, we keep a total of 12 bottles of different types of Monin syrup
