  • If you don't have buttermilk, you can substitute with regular milk mixed with 1 teaspoon of white vinegar.

  • Substitute coconut oil for the butter. This substitution will make the scones vegan and will also add a subtle hint of coconut flavor.
  • Substitute agave nectar for the honey. This substitution will make the scones vegan and will also add a milder, sweeter flavor.
