Blueberry Lemon + Rosemary Scones (Vegan)

The amount of tea that I drink is insane. So, naturally I am prone to baking up some tasty treats to go alongside my tea and my first thought is always scones. I love scones but find a lot of recipes to be too heavy or sweet. These scones are perfectly sweet (but not too sweet), so simple to make, light, and the flavor is unreal. Trust me, you’ll be making these over and over again! This recipe is inspired by the wonderful, Minimalist Baker - the queen of vegan baking!
