Maple Oat Scones

A tasty recipe for scones that is actually heart-healthy too!

Maple Oat Scones

1 1/4 c whole wheat flour
1/2 c flax seed meal
1/2 c quick-cooking oats
2 T sugar
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 T baking powder
2 T maple syrup
2 1/2 T butter, cut into small chunks
1 large egg
1/2 c milk
1/2 tsp maple extract
1/2 c coarsely chopped pecans
1/2 c golden raisins

Preheat oven 425.  Place flour, flax seed meal, oats, sugar, salt, and baking powder in food processor.  Pulsate several times until mixture takes consistency of flour. (I have skipped this step and they have turned out just as tasty.)  Add maple syrup and butter pieces and pulse until butter is evenly distributed.  Add egg, milk and maple extract and process until a sticky dough is formed.



Turn dough onto well floured surface.  Place pecans and raisins in center of dough and knead several times.  Pat dough into a 7-8in circle and cut into eight triangle wedges.

Line cookie sheet with parchment paper (or use scone pan) and place wedges on to sheet, approximately 1/2 inch apart. Bake 13-15 minutes until lightly browned.  Remove from oven and let cool.

Makes 8 scones.

****You can make a glaze for the top from 1 T orange juice and 1/2 cup powdered sugar if you prefer a sweeter scone.

Carson is having a hard time waiting 13 minutes for these to come out of the oven 🙂
