I was on my way back from yoga today, thinking about what I wanted for breakfast (of course) and I remembered these 15 Minute Oatmeal Scones I read about a day or so ago. I love the flavor of oatmeal, and while I'm usually too ravenous in the morning to whip up anything out of the ordinary for breakfast, this recipe said they'd only take 15 minutes (but more realistically, I'd say they take 20).
20 Minute Oatmeal Scones
Adapted from Eat Live Run (head over to Jenna's blog for more in process shots)
Makes 6 small or 4 large scones
1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
2/3 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into pieces
1/2 cup milk [I didn't have whole so I used a scant 1/2 cup skim plus about a tablespoon of cream]
Preheat your oven to 475 F. Mix together the oats, flour, salt, and baking powder in a large bowl. Cut in the butter and work with your fingers until the mixture resembles cornmeal. Pour in the milk and mix until just combined.
Pour the mixture onto your lined baking sheet and lightly shape into a circle. Bake for 13- 15 minutes or until golden.
