Mother's Day Paleo Vegan Lemon Poppy Seed Scones
Grain-free, dairy-free paleo vegan lemon poppy seed scones are so easy to make and perfect for sharing for brunch!
(yield: 8 large scones)


  • 2 tablespoons ground flaxseed
  • 6 Tbsp water
  • 1/2 cup Avocado/Coconut Oil
  • 3/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 2 lemons zested
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 cups almond flour
  • 1 cup arrowroot powder
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 2 Tbsp blue poppy seeds


  • 1/3 cup coconut butter, melted


  1. Preheat the oven to 190 degrees C.
  2. Stir together the flaxseed and water in a small bowl to form flax “eggs.” Allow this mixture to sit for 15 minutes to thicken. Stir occasionally. The mixture should be the consistency of beaten eggs.
  3. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the flax “eggs,” avocado oil, lemon zest, lemon juice, vanilla extract, and pure maple syrup.
  4. In a separate mixing bowl, stir together the remaining dry ingredients. Add the dry ingredients to the mixing bowl with the wet ingredients and stir well until a sticky dough forms.
  5. Transfer the scone dough to a lightly-oiled scone pan or line a baking sheet with parchment paper and form drop scones (you can make them any shape you would like).
  6. Bake on the center rack of the oven for 14 to 22 minutes (depending on size of scones), until scones are golden-brown around the edges. If making drop scones, bake for 14 to 18 minutes. If using a scone pan, bake 20 to 22 minutes.
  7. Allow scones to cool 15 minutes before using a spatula to remove them from the scone pan or baking sheet.
  8. If making the glaze, heat the coconut butter in a ramekin in the warm oven or microwave until melted. Drizzle scones with coconut butter and serve.
