S'mores Scones + 5 Year Veganniversary

Seriously delicious and fun, these s'mores scones are a wonderful treat for the youngins and those who are young at heart. Studded with chocolate chunks and bits of graham cracker, they are drizzled with chocolate as well as a marshmallow glaze then topped with crushed graham cracker. These are incredibly easy to make and done in a flash; so be the hit of the bonfire or party with my s’mores scones!

Oh yes my friends... two of the most perfect foods have been combined: s'mores and scones. I cannot think of anything more delicious. These were developed for the baby shower of a good friend last weekend and they were a hit!  I'm always trying to think of new scone flavors and when pondering the tasty flavor for the shower I was hit with a massive s'mores craving! I was dancing up and down when I told Todd my idea. My eagerness for bonfires, s'mores, and general Alaskan summer fun is really ramping up.

For my birthday last week I may have made funfetti scones... I think I have a problem... #sconelife

And guess what else!? Today is Todd's and my FIVE year veganniversary! Holy moly, you guys. If you want to learn more about why and how we went vegan (it happened overnight I might add!) head on over to the new About - Our Story page to find out all the deets. But first... scones.

Yield: 8

Ingredients

  • 2 cups (10 oz) all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup vegan granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 5 tbsp refined coconut oil, room-temperature
  • ¾ cup vegan chocolate chunks or chocolate chips, divided
  • 3 vegan graham cracker sheets, crushed, divided
  • ¾ cup + 1 tbsp vegan creamer or full-fat coconut milk, divided
  • ¼ cup vegan powdered sugar

Cooking Directions

  1. In a food processor, pulse together the flour through the baking powder. Pulse in the oil, 1 tbsp at a time, until it resembles coarse cornmeal with some larger pieces.
  2. Transfer to a large mixing bowl and stir in ½ cup of the chocolate chunks. Stir in the graham crackers, reserving a couple tablespoons for later. Next, slowly stir in ¾ cup of the creamer until just combined. The dough should be slightly sticky; if it’s not stir in a little more creamer.
  3. Preheat the oven to 450 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place another baking sheet beneath the first one (this keeps the bottoms from browning).
  4. Transfer the dough to a floured workspace and pat into an 8-inch round. Cut into 8 wedges and arrange on the baking sheet 2 inches apart. Bake for 12-15 minutes, rotating the sheet halfway through, until the tops are just golden brown. Allow to cool on a cooling rack until fully cooled.
  5. Once the scones are completely cool, melt the remaining chocolate in a small bowl in the microwave on the defrost setting or half power until it just starts to melt. Stir with a spoon to melt completely. Drizzle over the scones.
  6. In a small bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar and remaining creamer until smooth; add more creamer if necessary to reach the right viscosity for drizzling. Drizzle over the scones. Sprinkle the tops with the remaining crushed graham cracker crumbles. Serve with love.

Well, April 25th was Todd and my two year blogiversary and veganniversary. Another one come and gone and too much excitement already happening (housebuilding and cookbook) to evenly properly celebrate, can you imagine?! It's only been two years since we simultaneously decided to go completely vegan, and start a blog as an outlet to our new adventure but it sure feels like we've lived this way our whole lives.

Who would have known the adopting a vegan lifestyle would reduce Todd to the lowest dose of Methotrexate for this rheumatoid arthritis! Just by cutting out dairy, eggs, and meat?! He felt so much better, there was no turning back and then the blog just grew from there. It wasn't filled with the potential struggles of being vegan like I thought it would be. Nope, rather Produce On Parade became a celebration of this new way of life and the amazing food that goes with it. Add as time went on were reviews of wonderful vegan products, news and information regarding veganism and wellness, and of course a new Dutch word every post too. 

A lot has changed from two years ago. I never thought I'd be smack in the middle of building a home (yesterday was our second kitchen design appointment and today was bathrooms!) and writing a cookbook (over halfway done!). It's been a pretty crazy ride but I wouldn't change it for anything. Adopting a vegan lifestyle and starting Produce On Parade have been two of the most life-changing and exciting things in our lives. I can't wait to see what the next two years have in store! And for fun, here is look back to our one year blogiversary/veganniversary in which a salted caramel chocolate tart made a grand appearance. 

Thanks so much for supporting Produce On Parade in all we do over here. I love hearing from each and every one of you! You all always have the kindest things to say, especially in a world that's sometimes not so friendly. I wish you were all my neighbors so we could celebrate each new day with delicious, cruelty-free food and give each other advice on which vegan deodorant to use (you think I'm joking but I'm really not). I have the best readers and friends around. Thank you.
