Chocolate Chip Scones (Vegan)

Scones are so quick and easy to make, and have always been firm favourite of mine. Normally I would be making fruit scones, however I decided to mix things up and go for some dark chocolate chips, making a sweet, vegan and satisfying snack.

I would normally shape my scones using a cookie cutter, however this time I decided to shape the whole dough into a circle, then cut this into triangles. The bonus of this method is that no mixture is left over. I also happened to make GIANT scones using this method, so if you're not after large scones, divide the dough into two, then shape each half into a round and cut this up into smaller triangles. I did quite enjoy having giant scones though!
