Easy Orange Cornmeal Scones with Crystallized Ginger (Salt-Free)

Orange Cornmeal Scones with Crystallized Ginger

When you want something sweet and delicious without all the calories, then my orange cornmeal scones with crystallized ginger that I created can do the trick. These delectable oaty cornmeal sconeshave a slight crunch to the tender inside texture along with the perfect marriage of crystallized ginger joined with orange extract, and diced orange peel and raisins mixed in the flour. In this post, I’ll share this great recipe because these orange scones with oats are too good not to share.

Why Bake These Particular Orange Oat Scones

The first reason you’ll want this recipe is because these scones are scrumptious.

The second reason is because they are so incredibly easy to make. Besides gathering up the ingredients, it is basically mixing the wet ingredients into the dry before patting them into a circle and cutting them to load onto your greased baking pan.

The third reason is this is a salt-free scone recipe, which is important when watching your sodium levels. After all, it can lead to high blood pressure, heart disease, and strokes. However, did you also know that too much sodium in your diet also can weaken your bones as it draws the calcium from them? For the record, our bodies need about 500 mg. of sodium per day for the body to function. Yet, most of us consume far too much with about 3400 mg. (one and half teaspoons) daily.

The fourth reason is they are low calorie scones due to less sugar and oil compared to other sweet desserts. These little quick breads won’t leave you with guilt after eating them as you might be after finishing a big piece of cake, pie, or cookies.

Do take a chance and print out this recipe for these orange scones with cornmeal and crystallized ginger. Trust me, but you’ll really love these once you sample them. If you do try, please let me know in the comments what you think. And please share it with your family and friends.

Orange Cornmeal Scone

Orange Cornmeal Scones With Crystallized Ginger

1-1/4 cups sifted flour
½ cups of quick oats
½ cups of cornmeal
3 teaspoons of baking powder, leveled
1 large egg
1 teaspoon of orange extract
1 teaspoon of allspice
1/3 cup of crystallized ginger, finely chopped
1/3 cup of diced orange peel
1/3 cup of sugar
1/3 cup of raisins
1/3 cup of water
1/3 cup of oil

In a large mixing bowl, add the oats, sifted flour, cornmeal, sugar, allspice, and baking powder.

Now stir in the egg, oil, water, and orange extract next and mix into the dry ingredients until well moistened.

Add the raisins, diced orange peel and finely chopped crystallized ginger next to incorporate.

Pat down the dough to form a somewhat thick circle about eight inches around and two inches high. Then cut in half, then divide each half into thirds before placing a greased baking pan.

Bake in a 400-degree oven for about 12-15 minutes, depending on how your oven is regulated and the size of the scones you cut. The bottom will be gently brown.

ENJOY!
