Healthy Oatmeal Raisin Scones
I am so delighted to share with you this Healthy Oatmeal Raisin Scones Recipe. I could eat one of these scones every single day! They are like eating a big oatmeal raisin cookie. What could be better than that? Seriously, there is something to be said about eating scones in the morning.
I never used to understand the obsession and appeal of scones. Not until I took a bite of a truly great one, that is. It was all downhill from that point on.
If you’re even remotely a fan of muffins and biscuits, then you’re gonna love these. My favorite is serving them warm out of the oven, especially on a lazy weekend morning when you feel like spoiling everyone.
Many scones are bland and dense. Why would I want to waste an indulgence on that?
They are somehow sturdier and heartier than biscuits, but without being overly dry or crumbly. It makes a world of difference when you can great a good scone from a good recipe.
This recipe makes these baking goods supremely tender. Plus make sure you have a hot beverage in hand. The combination just tastes so much better. Whether you are a coffee drinker or just love some piping hot tea on your lazy Sunday morning, pair it with one of these scones and I promise it will be one of the better parts of your day.
Tips To Making the Best Scones
- Let’s chat butter. It must be COLD. The cold butter creates that beautiful tall flaky texture. I also always prefer to use unsalted butter for baking. The reason being, you can get exactly the taste you want. Often times, using salted butter will create a recipe that contains too much salt.
- It is extremely important that you measure the oats (and flour!) correctly. Too much of either will dry out your scones, especially the oats. They act like little sponges and soak up as much moisture as they can!
- Do not over mix your dough. Doing so will result in a flatter, tougher, and less flaky scone.
The shaped unbaked scones can be covered and refrigerated overnight, or placed in an airtight container and frozen for up to 1 month. If baking from frozen, add about 2 minutes to the baking time.
You can also make them ahead of time and freeze for a quick morning treat. Just please keep in in that microwaving will create a drier scone. These baked goods are naturally a little bit on the drier side.
