Mmm, these are sooo good! They wholesome, sweet, fluffy and flaky with a nice crunch from the oats. Great for breakfast or anytime, really. YUM!
I used two bananas in place of the egg sub and left out the sugar. I only used 1 1/2 tbs butter and that seemed to be plenty for me. My dried fruits were a mix of blueberries, cranberries and cherries. Next time I might up the whole wheat flour to 1 cup and see how that works out.
All in all a great recipe that I will keep handy to make over and over again.
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this true winner with us, Annacia!

I have been craving scones and this one hit the spot!. I didn't have cranberries or anything to add so I changed it up a little. I used 1 1/2 Cups of whole wheat pastry flour instead of the AP. I added 1/2 cup of oatmeal to the scone and because I didn't have the cranberries I upped the Splenda to 5Tbls. I am going to be making these over and over again :)

A lot of work however I will make them again. I used cherry essence prunes (lower in sugar/carbs) and I used plain no sugar added soy milk with some lemon juice to sour it instead of the buttermilk (another way to cut to carbs and sugar) I blended the ginger and cinnamon and was very pleased. Thank You for such a delightful recipe. As a diabetic I find them quite delightful.
