Hey all! Its been a hot minute since I posted on the blog. Summer was a busy one. Now that I’m back in the fall routine, my sights are set on all the delicious autumn recipes. Truth be told, comfort food is my favorite, so I cannot wait to try out some new recipes this season.
These easy Apple Oat Scones were a perfect and easy recipe for the apple picking season. While the recipe isn’t as traditional as a typical scone and the ‘dough’ is more like a thick batter, they still came out great! I’d say they are a little bit between a scone and a muffin, but more scone-like if that makes sense.
I like that these are dairy-free and gluten-free. They could be vegan if you subbed out the honey for agave syrup.
There is plenty of fresh apple in here, and a generous amount of cinnamon. So it will most definitely cure an apple/cinnamon craving. The scones are also good sized, so there’s always that! You could make 8 instead of 6 if you’d like them smaller.
Hope you all enjoy the beginnings of fall! I know I will be.
- 2 cups oat flour
- 1½ tsp baking powder
- ¼ tsp salt
- 1½ tsp cinnamon
- ¼ cup honey
- ¼ cup non-dairy milk
- 5 Tbsp vegan margarine
- ½ cup shredded/grated apple (leave skin on)
- 1 Tbsp coconut sugar
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- Shredded apple pieces
- Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
- In a medium sized bowl, combine all the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon).
- Cut in the margarine to the dry with a pastry cutter or fork. Once the mix is pea-sized, add in the shredded apple, honey and milk and mix until just combined. The 'dough' will be wet, more like a thick batter.
- Using a ¼ measuring cup, drop ¼ cup spoonfuls of batter onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
- Bake for about 18 minutes until golden on the bottom. They will remain fairly light on top.
- Allow to cool completely as they will be crumbly when hot.
