CINNAMON & BROWN SUGAR OAT SCONES- A (pretend) HEALTHY VERSION.

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:
Dough:
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
parchment paper

Topping:
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!

Anybody have an ACTUALLY healthy scone recipe?
Hook a girl up!

  1. I automatically think anything with oats sounds amazingly healthy...even if it might not be true. These look delish!

  2. At that time, I was a very ordinary promoter at a small company,
    of course, I earned not much money which was just enough
    to support myself. Known by Argentineans as Salta la Linda (Salta
    the Fair) this bustling city is a fine mix of the old and new, where European café culture
    and fine colonial architecture interacts daily with a central American flair for art and living; creating an ever-changing personality and identity for this entertaining city which, as of yet, has been little altered by the tourism wave.

  3. New simulators are on average produced every second month and some are highly expensive.
    It is also a good practice to make sure that
    none of the climbers are more tired than the other.
    Best of all, the basic version of this game is free. There were a few problems with setting the game up, but once we went through
    the manuals, these were mostly explained. It features its own unique economy in which
    players can buy and sell things they make and so on, several real world companies are actually getting into the game to offer services, such as
    H&R Block.

  4. Made these in the toaster oven, took about 30 minutes, they were amazing. Perfectly moist and a little sweet, just how I like it.
