This is a copycat recipe from Starbucks. I've altered the recipe a little so I could use a mixer instead of a processor....soooo very yummy!!!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. Using a food processor or blender, finely grind oats.
  3. In a mixer, mix flour, oats, sugar, salt and baking powder.
  4. Add maple syrup and butter and mix well.
  5. In a small bowl, beat the egg with the cream and maple extract.
  6. Pour the egg mixture into the flour mixture and mix well.
  7. Add pecans and mix just to incorporate.
  8. Place dough on a floured surface. Knead and pat dough into a 8 to 10 inch circle and cut into 8 wedges.
  9. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray. Place wedges on top and bake for 13 to 15 minutes, or until light brown.
  10. Remove scones from oven to wire rack. Let cool about 3 to 5 minutes.
  11. Mix glaze ingredients until smooth. Adjust the amount of water to get to the desired consistency. I like the glaze to be rather thick. Spread lots of glaze over each scone and dry about 15 minutes before serving.

I made a few slight changes and they turned out excellent! I've forever been searching for a Starbuck's maple oat scone recipe that comes close because I'm addicted to the original...and these come about as close as you can get! I used good maple syrup instead of water in the glaze (ended up using at least 1/4 cup with an unsifted 1 1/2 cups powd sugar) and made sure the scones were cool when I glazed them so the glaze stayed thick on top (killed me to wait!). I actually think they're better cool after they've sat for a little while. I also substituted 1/2 cup of whole wheat flour for 1/2 cup of the regular, upped the pecans to 1 cup and added a couple tbs more cream as they were not quite as moist as I would like. I also used a food processor up till adding the pecans (just pulsed the mixture to blend in ingredients then kneaded the pecans in lightly by hand). I've made them 3 times already trying to perfect the recipe and because they are SO GOOD!!!

Two of our sons worked at Starbucks. They are experts on Starbucks desserts. I made two substitutions as another writer suggested. I went with the 1/2 cup whole wheat flour and used 1 cup of nuts. My sons loved them.

Okay.. These are AMAZING! I love Starbucks anything... so I had to make these. I have made scones before, so I just used my usual method: I mixed everything in my food processor in the order listed and I made these for work, so I wanted more than 8. I formed the dough into a rectangle and cut it into 3 squares, then cut the squares into 2 triangles each, then cut the triangles into 2 smaller triangles. This gave me 12 mini scones and they were inhaled within about 20 minutes at work! Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT 4.
