Is there such thing as a healthy scone? Maybe not.
However, these are a slightly healthier recipe than the cranberry orange ones I made a while back!
Plus, they have oats in them- that makes it at least sound healthy, right? Sure, let's go with it.
What you'll need:
1 1/2 cups flour
1/4 cup light brown sugar
3/4 cup old fashioned oats (NOT quick cook!)
1/2 cup skim milk
1 stick butter
2 tsps baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon (more if you want!)
1/2 tsp salt
1 tablespoon melted butter
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp brown sugar
2 tsp granulated sugar (or stevia)
How to make it happen:
Step 1: Line a baking sheet with parchment paper & preheat your oven to 375.
Step 2: Mix all dry ingredients together from dough list in a large bowl. (flour, sugar, cinnamon, salt, baking powder)
Step 3: Using a knife or stand mixer mix in your butter, cutting through until mixture is a thick crumble.
Step 4: Quickly mix in your milk and beat lightly until well mixed.
Step 5: Pat dough together into a flat, slightly domed circle on your baking sheet- 6-8 inches wide.
Step 6: Spread top with melted butter and top with cinnamon sugar mixture.
Step 7: Cut into 6-8 pieces and separate on the sheet, about an inch apart.
Step 8: Bake for 20-25 minutes (depending on how hot your oven runs). Really start watching them around 16 minutes- take out when golden or else they will be dry-yyyy and you will be bummed.
While most scones call for cream or buttermilk, this recipe uses skim milk.
Aaaaaaand that is about the only healthy thing. Yup. Still sugar- but you can easily replace that with Stevia instead!
