Most scones ARE cooked; they're better that way. What I mean, of course, is that these are made with leftover cooked oatmeal. The only way to get leftover oatmeal in my house is to make extra and hide enough for these right away. There is nothing more comforting on a cold winter morning than a big bowl of oatmeal - except for these scones, with a little butter and honey and a nice pot of tea.
- Melt the butter and honey together, and mix them into the cool, cooked oatmeal.
- Mix in the milk, half at a time.
- Mix the flour, baking powder, and salt.
- You may wish to adjust the salt depending on how much was used in cooking the oatmeal- I am assuming not very much, if any.
- Mix the flour into the oatmeal.
- If the mixture seems too moist, add a little more flour.
- (This will depend on how moist your cooked oatmeal was. When enough flour has been stirred in, the dough will form a rough ball.) Roll out to 1" thick and cut in wedges, or scoop it out with an ice cream scoop and flatten it to 1" with dampened hands.
- Bake on a greased and floured sheet at 350°F for 15 to 20 minutes.
This was just great! I had a lot of extra leftover oatmeal and was looking for a way to use it up, other than just eating it. I added more honey as suggested by other reviews. Also I made a few scones with chocolate chips, strawberry jam, and other great flavorings just to give it some variety. But the ones I left plain were just great. And also I used applesauce instead of butter to reduce the fat content. I also used soymilk instead of milk and I omitted the salt. This is wonder and I plan on making this again many times in the future!
Very good! Only 3 points! I used 1/2 whit and 1/2 whaheat flour. Also cut the recipe in half because i wasn't quite sure how they'd turn out. Added 1t. of baking soda also. They rised nicly, and give you a good size scone. Took Akikobay's advice and added oargne zest and craisins. Made one with choc. chips for my mom, and all turned out well. Will make again.
I used your Oatmeal Cooked in a Rice Cooker #86820 recipe to make the oatmeal. It was still warm when I mixed this, and that was fine. I used 1/4 cup whole wheat flour and 1/2 cup soy flour, and finished them out with white. (Always upsetting when I run out of whole wheat flour!) They had a lovely flavor and texture. I'm taking 1 to my co-worker who is diabetic (and never gets the home baked goodies people bring) and sharing the rest with my kids. Excellent! I think I've started on a kick of making tons of your recipes. They are so good!
