Apple Oatmeal Scones

Apple Oatmeal Scones

(8 servings)    Printable Version
  • 1 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup uncooked rolled oats (quick or old-fashioned)
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar - packed
  • 2 and 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter - chilled and chopped into small pieces
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 Tablespoons molasses
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup apple - diced
  • 2/3 cup raisins or chopped dates
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In a large bowl, mix together the flour, oats, brown sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut in the butter in until mixture resembles wet sand.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg, milk, molasses and vanilla.

Add the wet mixture to the flour mixture and stir to combine. Stir in the apple and raisins.

Lay parchment paper over a large baking sheet. Spread the dough into an 8 inch circle over the paper. Cut the dough into 6 or 8 wedges.

Bake 25 minutes until browned and a toothpick inserted into the center of a scone comes out dry.

The taste of apple is even better when you add chopped dates or raisins. I hope you like them!

Mr Breakfast would like to thank AnaLola for this recipe.

This recipe was ok... the finished product had the texture somewhere between a cake and a scone. I think it needs a light sauce on it to improve it. Flavour was good.

I made this recipe using whole wheat pastry flour and it was quite tasty. I skipped the parchment and simply buttered the cookie sheet in the center where the scone dough would be. I also baked it for 22 minutes. Very crumbly, but good.

This recipe was not as good as I'd hoped. I was surprised because it looked great when it came out of the oven. Taste was pretty bad. I would not make it again.

Very good. I cut them into 8 slices, 6 slices would make them much too big.

I also added a bit more flour as I was shaping it into a ball - about 1/4 cup more I would say.

Overall, very good. The molasses made them a very nice color and the apple is a sweet twist.
