Oatmeal Coconut and Almond Scones


I have been craving homemade scones lately. They are so great for breakfast! You can have them with some fruit and, of course, some coffee (or tea).

I still had some leftover coconut and almonds from the Butterscotch Blondie Bites, so I decided to use it up.

Ingredients
  • 1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup sweetened coconut
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup cold butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/2 tsp each sugar and cinnamon, combined
In a large bowl combine the flour, oats, sugar, coconut, baking powder and salt. Cut in the butter until it resembles course crumbs. (I think it is easiest to do this with your fingers.) In a smaller bowl, combine the eggs and milk. Pour all but 1 tbsp of the egg mixture in with your dry ingredients and stir just until evenly moistened.

Turn out dough onto a well floured cutting board. Knead just a couple of times and then press into an 8 inch round. Carefully slide onto a baking tray sprayed with oil. Cut into 6 equal pieces (like a pie). Brush with remaining egg mixture. Sprinkle with almonds and cinnamon sugar mixture. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 18-20 minutes until nicely browned. Cut the rest of the way through and place on a baking rack to cool. Serve warm.


~Enjoy~

I have never had a scone. These look delicious, though... might have to try them.

Yum!

And scones are fun to say, too.

"Here. Have a scone! I made them myself."

I've never tried making scones but those look sooooo good I am quite inspired to go for it. I think I'll make a batch for my brother - he gets up so early he never has time to eat before he goes to work and these are portable. :)

I had such good intentions of making these. I decided one night to go for it, opened the cupboard to get out the ingredients and found a "just add water" scone mix staring at me! I don't even remember buying it! So I took the lazy way out, but added chopped dried apricot and sprinkled oats on the top so it looked like I worked hard. ;)

You forgot to mention when to put in the oatmeal....I put it in with the dry ingredients of course and experienced cooks could figure this out. However elimination of an ingredient in the instructions can confuse newer cooks. Please be sure to pay more attention when posting a recipe and include ALL ingredients in the instructions.

Hi Ruby- Sorry about the oatmeal issue. I was very new to food blogging when I posted this recipe. I have learned from my mistakes over the years. I appreciate your input. Thanks for your comment. :)
