Oatmeal Cinnamon Scones

I was on a baking kick this morning and wanted to try these Oatmeal Cinnamon Scones that a fellow vegan baker has sent me via VegWeb.  Super yummy!

1 1/4 cups whole wheat pastry or all purpose flour
1/3 cup brown sugar (I used 1/2 cup for sweeter scone)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup Earth Balance  sticks
1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1/3 cup raisins, optional (I omitted since my kids are not fans of raisins in baked goods)
1/2 cup nuts, chopped, optional (I omitted)
1/3 cup vanilla or plain nondairy milk (I use soy)

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.  Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon together in a large bowl.  Cut in margarine until mixture becomes uniformly crumbly.
  • Stir in oats, raisins, and nuts (if using). Add milk and mix gently until a soft dough begins to cling together.  Turn dough out onto a floured surface and pat it into a 7″ circle.
  • Cut into 8 wedges and place them on an ungreased baking sheet. Just before baking, sprinkle scone wedges with granulated sugar for a sweeter taste. Bake 15-18 minutes until golden brown and firm when pressed lightly in the center.
  • Substitute any other dried fruit you wish:  cranberries, chopped dates or apricots, blueberries, cherries, dried apples or pears.

Rating:  A. Kate, my oatmeal cookie girl, gave these a big thumbs up.  I love how they are fairly healthy with whole wheat pastry flour and oatmeal.  I served them with Earth Balance and jam.  These won’t stick around long!

Serves: 8 scones, Preparation time: 30 min.

    Ooooh, I’ll definitely try these. We love oatmeal cookies and scones in this family — so these look like a marriage made in heaven!

    I remember y’all talking about Whole Wheat Pastry Flour at the reunion and I can’t seem to find it anywhere. What brand are you using? King Arthur? Pilsbury? I’ve seen Pastry Flour, Whole Wheat Flour, and White Whole Wheat, but no Whole Wheat Pastry Flour.

    Hi Cris –

    I have found Whole Wheat Pastry flour at the Natural Food stores, like Sprouts, Whole Foods, and Natural Grocer. I usually buy their store brands or get it in bulk. I bet Trader Joes would have some? If you can’t find it, you can always use all-purpose flour. Happy Baking!
