1Preheat oven to 375˚F. Line a large baking sheet with a silicone mat or parchment paper; set aside.
2Add the flour to a large mixing bowl and slowly drizzle in the coconut oil while using the KitchenAid® 7-Speed Hand Mixer – on the low speed – to blend until the mixture resembles coarse meal with pea-sized clumps.
3Add the oats, salt, baking powder, and vanilla bean powder then mix again – with the mixer – just until combined. Create a well in the center of the flour mixture and pour in the maple syrup and almond milk; use a spatula to (gently) combine the ingredients. The dough will feel a bit wet, but it shouldn’t take long for the flour and oats to absorb the excess moisture.
4Turn the dough out onto a flat surface lined with parchment paper and pat into a disk that’s about 1” thick. Using a sharp knife, slice the dough crosswise – four ways – then transfer to the prepared baking sheet.
5Brush scones with almond milk and sprinkle with vanilla sugar, if desired, then bake at 375˚F for 18-20 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
6While the scones are cooling, prepare the raspberry glaze by whisking together the powdered sugar and raspberry juice, then smear or drizzle over top and enjoy.
