  • 21 grams of instant dry yeast,
  • 1/4 cup of sugar 1 and 1/2 cups of warm almond milk,
  • 4 and ½ cups flour,

  • 1 cup dairy free chocolate chips For the glaze: 1/4 cup sugar 3 tablespoons hot water For crossings: 60 grams of flour 60 ml of water
  • Preparation:
  1. First you have to prepare the dough. You may prepare it by the bread machine in the program making the dough, or you can make it by hand: Combine the warm almond milk, sugar and dried yeast in a small bowl. Let it raise for 15 minutes.
  2. Put the flour and salt and remaining dry ingredients in a large bowl, make a hole in the middle and add the melted coconut oil, the egg, lightly beaten, the yeast and the dairy free melted chocolate.
  3. Knead until dough is smooth and elastic. Place back into the large bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Reserve in a warm place for 1 to 1 and 1/2 hours, or until the dough doubles in size.
  4. Grease and flour a large baking sheet.
  5. When the dough is ready knead for a while and divide dough into 16 rolls or more. Place the scones on the baking sheet slightly apart from each other.
  6. Set aside to rise covered with a cloth for 30 minutes.
  7. Meanwhile preheat oven to medium high heat and prepare to make the cross dough.
  8. Combine flour and water and put that preparation in a sleeve or a bag of nylon. Make crosses over dough.
  9. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden and fragrant, these spices will fill your kitchen with a delicious aroma.
  10. For the icing sugar just dissolve in hot water and once buns should be ready to paint with glaze.
  11. Remove from the pan and enjoy!!!!
