1/1 Photo of (Relatively) Healthy Oatmeal Scones
After finding an old scone recipe in the crevices of my kitchen, I experimented a little and it turned into a low fat--but still delicious!--treat, great for breakfast, snacks, or afternoon tea. These are best warm, split in half and spread with jam, preserves, butter, and/or clotted cream. Also great with a hot cup of tea. =)
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1 1/4 cups wheat flour
- 3/4 cup old fashioned oats
- 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/3 cup dried fruit (raisins, currants, cranberries, etc.) (optional)
- 1/4 cup light butter or 1/4 cup margarine
- 2/3 cup buttermilk
- 1 tablespoon half-and-half (optional)
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- extra sugar
- 1 tablespoon buttermilk (for brushing)
- 1Preheat your oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
- 2Mix together dry ingredients (flour, oats, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt).
- 3Cut in butter (I like to dice the butter and add it in, separating the cubes) and combine using a fork until the mixture resembles bread crumbs.
- 4Add dried fruit to dry mixture if desired.
- 5In a separate bowl, mix together the wet ingredients (buttermilk, half-and-half, vanilla).
- 6Gradually add wet mixture to the flour mixture and combine until a soft and sticky dough is formed.
- 7Move dough to a lightly floured surface and knead 2-3 times. Do not overwork the dough. Roll the dough into a 6-8-inch circle (depending on how thick you like your scones) and cut into 8 pie-shaped slices. You can experiment with other dough shapes (such as circles) to maximize servings.
- 8Bake in preheated oven for 15-18 minutes, or until scones are golden-brown and a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
- 9For extra crunch and golden color, brush the tops of the scones with buttermilk. Liberally sprinkle sugar on top and broil carefully for a few minutes, turning and adjusting as necessary. Be sure to watch as sugar browns quickly.
