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?
