Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Mix the flax meal with the water and set aside.
Whisk oat flour, almond flour, baking powder, chia seeds, and salt in a bowl.
Combine flax mixture with soymilk, maple syrup, lemon juice, and vanilla and add to the dry ingredients. Mix carefully until just combined. The dough is thick and sticky. You might need to use your hands to pull it together. Add a tablespoon or more plant milk if it’s too dry.
Very gently fold in the blueberries.
On a lightly floured surface, shape the scone mixture into a 7” circle. Place onto the baking sheet, cut into 8 wedges, and gently pull them apart so there’s at least an inch between them. **To make round scones, see the instructions in the recipe notes below.
Bake on the middle rack for 15-20 minutes until lightly golden brown. Check at 15 minutes to see if they're golden brown yet as each oven is different. If not, put them back in the oven for another 5 minutes or so.
To top with a powdered sugar drizzle mix 1/2 cup loosely packed powdered sugar with 1 tablespoon plant milk and mix until smooth. Drizzle across each scone.
If you have leftovers, refrigerate in an airtight container for about 7 days or frozen up to 3 months.
*Frozen may stay together better when mixing them into the batter.**To make round scones, turn onto a surface sprinkled with a little oat or all-purpose flour. Top the scone mixture with a little more flour to prevent sticking and cut into fourths. Divide each fourth in half and with your hands, shape into a circle about 3/4” high by 3.” Proceed with baking.You can substitute other berries such as raspberries, cranberries, cut up strawberries, or raisins.Nutrition uses unsweetened soy milk and does not include Powered Sugar Drizzle
