Chocolate Chip Scones

Full disclosure!  Yes, as you know I am a champion of a whole foods, plant-based, low-fat diet.  It’s a passion and along with staying fit, it’s what I talk about and teach every single day.

At the same time, I have never professed to nary a stray outside of the whole-foods box.  Lest you think I never bake or eat vegan ‘junk’ food,  today proved otherwise as this recipe has sugar, processed flour, and waaaay too much fat.

Today for Father’s Day I couldn’t help but FINALLY try baking chocolate chip scones from Colleen Patrick-Goudreau’s The Joy of Vegan Baking.  And let me assure you, these did not disappoint.  Colleen’s book is a masterpiece, so fun to look through, and I bake from it maybe once or twice a year.

Yes, the scones are as yummy as they look.  And as the last time I baked a pastry was December of last year, a pumpkin pie for Christmas some 7 or 8 months ago, I am true to my word about the “occasional festive” and “feast” when it comes to items such as this on my plate.  Remember, my dietary plan is a set of principles, not religious dogma.  And no animal was harmed during the preparation of this food, a must, of course!

Enjoy what you eat!  How was your Father’s Day?
