  • 4 tbsp caster sugar

Method

  1. Place the raspberries and maple syrup in a saucepan set over a medium-high heat and stir until the fruit begins to break down and puree.
  2. Stir in the chia seeds and lemon juice until combined, then taste and add more maple/lemon juice as required.
  3. Remove from heat and let cool for 5 minutes, then transfer to a sterilised jam jar and refrigerate for up to 1 week, or freeze for up to 3 months.
  4. Pre-heat oven to 210 C / 190 C fan.
  5. In a large bowl mix together the flour and baking powder.
  6. Add the dairy free spread and using your fingers rub the spread into the flour until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
  7. Make a well in the centre of the bowl and add the YoGo and oat milk mixture, vanilla and lemon juice.
  8. Mix with a spoon until just combined - do not over work or your scones will be tough - then tip out onto a floured surface. Bring together lightly with your hands and then roll out to about 4 cm/1 1/2 inch thick.
  9. Dip a 7cm cutter in flour and press out 4 rounds.
  10. Place on a floured baking tray and bake in the pre-heated oven for 12 - 15 minutes.
  11. Transfer to a cooling rack and leave to cool before splitting open and serving with coconut yoghurt and the chia jam.
