Dark Chocolate Beet Scones 

Servings: 8 scones Prep time: 15 minutes Cook time: 20-25 minutes


* 1 package of Love Beets Organic Cooked Beets

* ¼ cup full fat coconut milk, stirred

* 2 tsp. vanilla extract

* 1 dairy free dark chocolate bar, chopped (about ½ cup)

* 2 cups + 1 Tbsp. whole wheat pastry flour

* ½ cup cold vegan butter (regular butter will also work)

* ¼ cup coconut sugar

* 2 ½ tsp. baking powder

* ½ tsp. salt

* Beet juice reserved from Cooked Beets, about 1 Tbsp.

* 2 ½ cups powdered sugar

* 1 Tbsp. orange juice

* 1 Tbsp. coconut milk

* ¼ cup pistachios, chopped


1. Preheat the oven to 400 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2. Carefully open the Love Beets Organic Cooked Beets package, pouring excess juice into a bowl for later.

3. Using a food processor or high powered blender, puree the cooked beets until smooth and no chunks remain. Set aside.

4. Cut the cold butter into ¼-inch sized cubes and then place back into the fridge.

5. Add 2 cups of flour into a large bowl. Add coconut sugar, baking powder, and salt, whisking until well combined. Set aside.

6. In a smaller bowl, combine beet puree, coconut milk, and vanilla. Whisk until smooth and well combined.

7. Remove cubed butter from the fridge and add to the bowl of dry ingredients. Using your hands, toss the butter pieces with the flour, until coated. Then, using your finger tips, rub the butter into the flour until it is fully incorporated, until no large chunks of butter remain, creating a sand like mixture. This may take a few minutes.

8. Using a spatula, gently fold in the beet mixture to the dry ingredients, until just barely incorporated. Then fold in the chopped dark chocolate. The dough will be slightly sticky, but not wet. If the dough is wet, add the remaining 1 tbsp of flour. Being sure to not overmix.

9. Using your hands and lightly pressing with your palms, shape the dough into a circle, about 8 inches in diameter and 1 inch thick, on the lined baking sheet. Using a long knife, slice the dough into 8 triangles, pushing the knife all the way through the dough.

10. Bake for 15 minutes, turning the pan halfway through, then remove from the oven and carefully slice the dough again and pull the triangles away from each other.

11. Return the scones to the oven and bake for another 5-10 minutes or until the edges and tops are lightly browned.

12. Let scones cool on the pan for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.

13. While the scones cool, make the glaze by whisking together the reserved beet juice, orange juice, and powdered sugar. If the glaze is too loose, add an additional tbsp of powdered sugar, if too thick, add a tsp more of orange juice, until it reaches your desired thickness.

14. Once the scones are fully cooled, drizzle the glaze over the tops and sprinkle with chopped pistachios. Enjoy!
