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!

Ingredients

1 ¾ cup steel cut oats
2 cups rolled oats (used in divided doses)
2 teaspoons baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons agave nectar or honey
¼ cup olive oil or vegetable oil of your choice
1 egg
½ cup buttermilk or almond milk
½ cup raisins
½ cup walnuts

Instructions

  1. In a food processor, place the steel cut oats and ground till fine. Add salt, baking soda and pulse till well mixed.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Cut the round dough into 8 slices (like a pizza) and place on a lined baking tray.
  6. Bake at 400F for 15 minutes or until the edges of the scones are golden brown.
  7. Allow to cool and serve warm if possible. You can also reheat them in the oven before serving.
