Vegan Cheese Scones

Who says vegans can’t eat cheese?! This post is all you need to debunk that silly lie. I created this recipe to complete our lock-down birthday celebrations with afternoon tea. We all know a quintessential afternoon tea, has to have scones. However, I personally prefer savoury treats, so the only possible solution to that problem, was cheese.

These cheese scones are just heavenly and they can be enjoyed plain or with toppings such as chutneys or spreads. If you make them please be sure to share your pictures with my by using #pinchofkindness or tagging @pinchofkindness on Facebook and Instagram.
