My husband decided to bake me some healthy goodies for my birthday and we tested out this recipe for scones as we had made them at home before. With a little tweaking to the sugar content, we managed to come up with a recipe for beautifully crisp-on-the-outside and soft-on-the-inside kinda scones. You will love the crumby and not-too-sweet nature of these anytime snacks, filled with the fiber and goodness of oats. Thank you, hubby!
- In a food processor, place the steel cut oats and ground till fine. Add salt, baking soda and pulse till well mixed.
- Remove into a large bowl and add the agave/honey, oil, egg and buttermilk into the dry ingredients. Using a large spoon, mix all the ingredients well until a thick, sticky and consistent batter is formed.
- Fold in the raisins, walnuts (you can chop them if you don’t like large pieces in a bite) and 1 cup of the rolled oats.
- Now wet your hands with water and form a round of dough about 8 inches across with the batter. Sprinkle the remaining 1 cup of oats on top. Let this rest for about 5 minutes.
- Cut the round dough into 8 slices (like a pizza) and place on a lined baking tray.
- Bake at 400F for 15 minutes or until the edges of the scones are golden brown.
- Allow to cool and serve warm if possible. You can also reheat them in the oven before serving.
