This Strawberry Scones Recipe is specifically designed for Breakfast. They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day. And we have to agree, especially when these Honey Infused Strawberry Scones are on the menu. If you like a crispy, flaky crust, then you are in for a real treat today.
We’re all so busy these days. That’s why taking a few minutes to start your day out with something spectacularly indulgent, makes a difference. You know how they say “stop and smell the roses”? Well, we recommend that too. But we also highly recommend stopping and tasting your food. That’s why a flavorful start to your day, with these Honey Strawberry Scones will make the difference.
There’s a lot you can do to supercharge your mornings. We believe meditation helps. A morning walk can do the trick. Drinking a tall glass of water will get you hydrated. All-in-all, carving out 15 – 20 minutes for yourself can get some positive momentum moving for your day.
We like to model the bees. They’re naturally busy creatures. And they’re also social. So don’t let being busy get you down, just take the time to charge up in ways that keep you feeling inspired. We’d like to suggest that these Honey Strawberry Scones be a part of that morning inspiration.

Strawberry Scones Recipe
- 2 1/2 c all-purpose flour
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 2 tsp. baking powder
- 1/2 c butter or coconut oil cold
- 1 tbsp. ground flax meal
- 1 tbsp. cornstarch
- 3 tbsp. water
- 1 tbsp. plant-based milk
- 3 tbsp. Waxing Kara honey
- 10 strawberries washed
- 2 tbsp. strawberry vodka
- 2 tbsp. plant-based milk
- 1 tsp. butter melted
- 1 c powdered sugar
- 2 tbsp. honey
Heat your oven to 400F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a food processor bowl combine the flour, salt, and baking powder. Pulse a couple of seconds to combine. Next chop the cold butter (or coconut oil) into pieces and add to the flour mixture. Pulse for several more seconds until the fat is incorporated throughout the flour. Set aside.
In a mixing bowl combine the ground flax meal, cornstarch, water, milk, and honey. Stir to combine. Set aside.
Remove the stems from the strawberries, and cut each strawberry in half and then cut those halves in half, quartering the strawberries. Add the chopped strawberry pieces to the flour mix in your food processor. Pulse 2 – 3 times for a second or two each. Just quick pulses to help coat the strawberries and break them into smaller pieces.
Pour the strawberry flour mixture over the honey mixture. Gently stir to combine. It will be a crumbly mix. Add the strawberry vodka, one tablespoon at a time. The vodka will help make the mixture more manageable, and will evaporate in the baking process, creating a flakier scone.
Pour this onto a lightly floured surface. Gently form into a circle, around 7 – 8 inches in diameter. If pieces flake off, just add just a little bit of vodka to help patch it together. Cut the circle in half, Then turn and cut the halves in half, creating four equal triangles. Cut each of those in half to create 8 triangle pieces.
Gently transfer the 8 pieces to your prepared baking sheet.
Place 1 tablespoon plant-based milk and 1 teaspoon melted butter in a small bowl. Stir to combine. Brush the top of each scone with this mixture to create a nice, golden crust.
Bake for 18-20 minutes, until the top is golden brown. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for several minutes.
In the meantime make your honey glaze by combining powdered sugar with honey. Stir together and add just a splash of milk to achieve a spreadable consistency.
Allow the scones to cool before drizzling.
