Maple Oatmeal Scones

Scones are one of my favorite breakfasts or afternoon snacks.  I particularly love scones because they can be frozen and then baked straight from the freezer. This scone is hearty, yet light, version of my favorite treat.

Maple Oatmeal Scones - Growing Up Gabel

I adore scones and I have a backlog of scone recipes waiting to be made. These scones are slightly different than most other recipe I’ve made because they call for eggs and I generally make scones when I am out of eggs.  The scones bake up big and fluffy.  In fact, this is the lightest scone I’ve made yet.  What I really like about this recipe is the whole wheat flour and oats, which add a little whole grain goodness to an otherwise sweet treat. I substituted plain yogurt for buttermilk because that’s what I had on hand.
