VEGAN Scones

These vegan scones are about to be your new go-to. Simple and delicious, these are another awesome 15 minute recipe, so they’re perfect for unannounced guests! I remember when we were little my mom would take my sister and me to this coffee shop before school in the morning and I would always get their scones. I’ll always remember them, they were just perfect, not too dry and not too sweet, just perfect. Since that time about 10 years ago, I’ve never forgotten those scones, but these vegan scones definitely give them a run for their money!! I know these scones will leave a lasting impression on you all as well! These taste great topped with fresh fruits and jelly of your choice!

Baked Oatmeal Cups

I love these baked oatmeal cups for a couple reasons; they’re super healthy, they’re easy to make, and they’re versatile-you can mix and match-fill them with whatever you like! These are a simple recipe even your little one can help make! They also last in the freezer up to 3 months, so I like to make a big batch which will last weeks! Perfect for breakfast, lunch boxes, and grab-and-go snacks. For an extra boost of omega 3s- mix in some chia seeds with the oats! I topped this batch with toasted coconut and mango, goji berries-a mildly sweet and savory berry packed with antioxidants and vitamin A, and blueberry, my favorite! Comment below and tell me which kind of oatmeal cups you like the best!!
