Cranberry Oat Scones

I found this recipe on the Internet and promptly modified it to be a bit more healthy. Warning: I am not in favour of the super sweet scones they sell at coffee houses. Mine are more representative of the true Scottish scone, with just a touch of sweetness.

I will continue to modify this recipe when I bake it. Maybe swap out some regular flour for gluten free four… If you don’t have yogurt, use milk.  You can also swap out half of the oil for unsweetened applesauce.

Cranberry Oat Scones

1 ¾ c. white flour
2 Tbsp. sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
¼ tsp. salt
1/2 c. canola oil
¾ c. old fashioned rolled oats
½ c. cranberries
zest of one lemon
¾ c. yogurt

Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut in oil. Add oats, cranberries and lemon zest. Add yogurt and stir till mixed well. Turn out on board and knead 5 -10 times. Roll out to 1” thick circle. Cut in eighths. Put on pan to bake for 15-18 min. in 375 F oven.
