How to Make Easy Oatmeal Scones – A Healthier Delicious Sweet Treat

 
oatmeal scones

Do you crave sweets most days but hate all those extra calories?  Then you just might like something in between a bread and a cookie like my favorite oatmeal scones.  This recipe has everything I’m nuts over.  It’s easy to whip up, a healthier alternative to other more fattening cookies or cakes, keeps well, and most of all–satisfies the sweet tooth when that craving for a goodie takes over!

Something else that I love about this recipe is the nice texture of the scones.  They also have a moistness to these scones that keep them fresher the next day, if you happen to have left over.  However, I honestly doubt that you will.  My scones always seem to disappear.

What I love about scones is there are so many different ways to make them from sweet to more bread like biscuits. Some of my recipes that I keep making again and again are my Chocolate-Chip Raisin Scones, Cheddar-Rosemary Scones, Orange Scones, and Awesome Coffee Shop Blueberry Scones. Check my recipe section and type in scones in the search box for more.

Oatmeal Scones

2 cups old-fashioned oats
2-1/4 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1/2 cups sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg  or 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cups canola oil
3/4 cup milk
1 large egg

Heat your oven to 400-degrees.  Mix everything with an electric mixer and then you can drop batter by the tablespoon or with a small ice cream scoop onto your greased baking sheet.  If you want more uniform shapes like I’ve shown, I pat my hands with a little flour so not to stick and roll into a small ball in the palm of my hand.   You can get 12 big scones.  Bake approximately 15 minutes or until lightly browned.

ENJOY!
