Pear Walnut Fig Scones (Vegan)
Author: 
Serves: 10
 
*That's 2 medium bartlett pears (rinsed, skin on)--make sure they are perfectly ripe so they are sweet and juicy!
Ingredients
  • Wet Ingredients:
  • 2 cups chopped pears*
  • 4 Turkish dried figs, chopped
  • ½ cup organic expeller pressed canola oil
  • ½ tsp pure vanilla extract
  • Dry Ingredients:
  • 2 cups white whole wheat flour
  • 1½ tsp baking powder
  • ⅓ cup raw walnut halves or pieces
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven 350 F
  2. Place the chopped pears, chopped figs and remaining wet ingredients in the bowl of an electric mixer and beat for a couple minutes until thoroughly blended (it's ok for some of the chopped pear pieces to stay intact!).
  3. Add the dry ingredients and beat again (it will form a very thick dough and that's OK).
  4. Scoop out the dough in large heaping spoonfuls, and place each scoop (you'll have enough for 10 small scones) on top of a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  5. Optional: If you'd like, you can top each scone with a piece of walnut before putting in the oven.
  6. Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes until golden.
