Scone Dough

  • - 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • - 1/2 cup oat flour
  • - 2 oz. Prime Roots Plant Based Bacon
  • - 1/2 tbsp brown sugar
  • - 2 Tbsp baking powder
  • - 1 Tsp salt
  • - 1/2 cup pecans, chopped
  • - 1 cup coconut oil
  • - 2 Tbsp flax meal + 3 Tbs water
  • - 3/4 cup of coconut cream


  • - 1 Cup powdered sugar
  • - 3 Tbsp oat milk
  • - 1 Tbsp maple syrup
  • - 1 Tsp salt



1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Prepare Prime Roots bacon: lightly grease a frying pan with refined coconut oil (or another high smoke point oil). Saute bacon strips on medium-low heat until crispy. Transfer bacon to a plate lined with paper towels and let cool. Chop into small pieces.
3. Prepare the scone dough: add all dry ingredients to a large mixing bowl and whisk together.
4. Add cold coconut oil in chunks and cut into dry mixture with a pastry cutter or fork until coconut oil is in pea-sized chunks. Stir in chopped pecans.
5. Prepare the flax egg: mix flax meal with water and let thicken for up to 5 minutes. Add to dry mixture along with coconut cream.
6. Stir and finish by kneading together for a minute until everything is combined.
7. Flour a smooth surface and knead dough out into a large disk, about an inch thick. Cut into triangles with a pizza cutter or knife.
8. Place scones on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 20-25 minutes.
9. Prepare the icing: whisk together all ingredients.
10. Once scones are done, let cool. Drizzle with icing and top with bacon.
