    Katzen's Note:

    This is a redo of a savory recipe I've made from I'm Pat, for a Gluten Free Kumara Damper, which inspired me to modify this recipe into a sweet(ish) scone, made with cinnamon, pecans, a bit of brown sugar and maple syrup, and for those who don't have self-rising flour handy, include the measurements for the baking powder and salt. I've also changed the flour, using part oat flour, and part all purpose or whole wheat, your choice - although use your imagination, or what's on hand. The ones in the photo were made with all-purpose and oat flour. You can make oat flour by whirring some oats in your grinder until they resemble flour. I love oat flour!! These are a real favourite at home! Merlin and Arwen (my parrots), negotiate for as much of the sweet potato as they can - generally the rule is that they can have all but 1/2 cup of it. When the scones come out of the oven is another story!! I hope you like my version of them - feel free to change it up as you'd like to.

      These scones are AWESOME! They are so tasty with the nuts, cinnamon chips and sweet potato going so well together. The texture is flakey and soft at the same time with the sugar on top giving the scones a great crust.
      I used the whole wheat option, small flake oats in place of oat flour, brown sugar and reduced the sugar topping to about 1/4 ts. The cinnamon chips really made these special, but mine were quite salty somehow, so next time Id leave out the salt.
      THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing such wonderful recipe with us, Kat. You can be really proud of this concotion!
      Made and reviewed for one of my babies during PAC Fall 2011.
