Scottish Oat Scones

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by death_by_parsnip

Easy, healthy, and delicious! I adapted a recipe I initially found on a box of oats. I've improved the initial recipe by changing many of the ingredients and measurements. You can substitute for many of the ingredients, but please don't substitute anything else for the butter!

Very Nice scone. I made them with dried sweetened cranberries and 2% milk and they tasted lovely. Taste-tested these against another Scottish oat scone recipe on 'zaar and yours came out the winner. I will make these again, thanks for a great recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Grease a large cookie sheet.
  2. Put first eight ingredients (up to raisins) into a large bowl. Cut with a fork until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  3. Add egg and milk to mixture. Stir until just moist.
  4. Drop spoonfuls of dough onto cookie sheet forming large piles. You should end up with 10-12 scones spaced about one inch apart. Sprinkle with sugar.
  5. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until the scones start to turn golden on the edges.
