Raisin Pecan Oat Scones
Makes 12 scones,
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 2 cups old fashioned rolled oats, divided
- 1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 5 tablespoons melted butter or coconut oil
- 1/2 cup plain yogurt
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/2 cup raisins
- 1/2 cup chopped pecan pieces
- Optional Cinnamon Glaze
- 3/4 cup powdered sugar
- 2-3 tablespoons water or milk
- 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
- Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Combine the flour, one cup of the oats, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.
- Add the melted butter/oil, yogurt, milk, and vanilla, and stir until just combined.
- Add the raisins, pecan pieces and the final cup of oats. After a gentle stir, you should have a shaggy dough. Use your hands to shape 12 biscuit-sized scones.
- Bake the scones on a parchment lined baking sheet for around 12-14 minutes, checking the bottoms for medium browning before taking them out.
In the meantime, whisk a few tablespoons of water or milk into powdered sugar with cinnamon until you have a drippy glaze.
- Cool the scones on a rack for 10 minutes and drizzle with glaze. Serve warm.
Notes: Store extra scones in an airtight container (after the glaze has hardened, if using) on the counter for up to 2 days, or freeze them for up to 3 months.
