1 tsp green tea leaves ground to a powder
450g/1lb strong white flour, plus a little extra for rolling out
80g/3oz vegan spread
75g/3oz xylitol
2 free-range eggs, beaten
5 tsp baking powder
250ml/8½fl oz Oat Dream or Vanilla Rice Dream

  2. Lightly grease a baking tray and line it with baking or silicone paper.
  3. Put the green tea and flour into a large bowl and add the dairy free spread.
  4. Rub the flour and spread together with your fingers to create a breadcrumb-like mixture.
  5. Stir in the xylitol, eggs and baking powder and use a wooden spoon to beat the mixture gently.
  6. Pour in half of the Oat Dream and stir to combine.
  7. Add the remaining milk a little at a time to create a soft and sticky dough (you may not need all the milk)
  8. Lightly flour a work surface.
  9. Tip out the dough and knead lightly to form smooth dough.
  10. Roll out the dough until it is 2.5cm thick.
  11. Use a pastry cutter, stamp out rounds from the dough and place onto the baking tray.
  12. Brush the tops with a little egg glaze. Bake the scones in the middle of the oven for 15 minutes, or until the scones are risen and golden-brown.
  13. Leave the scones to cool, then split in half and spread with dairy free spread and jam to serve.
