Oat Maple and Apple Scones

So a couple days ago, I shared my newfound love of the blog, Bakeaholic Mama?  Well, I wanted to share yet ANOTHER recipe from her genius baking brain.....Whole Wheat Oat Maple and Apple Scones.  They were a HUGE hit here and I've made them twice since I discovered the recipe.  I love that these are made with whole wheat flour and normally, baking with that leads me with a rock in your stomach heavier baked good.  Not these.  They are tasty, full of yummy apple maple flavor - and we love 'em. 

Ingredients:1 cup rolled oats
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 a cup pure maple syrup
1 cup chopped apples (about one apple)
1 egg
1/4 cup milk ( I used 1%)
1/3 cup butter ( you can also substitute unsweetened applesauce)
1 tbs milk for brushing
1 tbs turbinado sugar (raw sugar) for dusting

Directions:
Preheat oven to 400.
In a medium mixing bowl blend flour and butter together with a pastry blender or fork until the butter is in pea sized pieces. Add in oats, cinnamon, egg, milk, and maple syrup. Mix until it is just incorporated. Fold in apple pieces.

Pat into a disk and cut out into circles using a biscuit cutter or cup.

Brush with milk and top with turbinado sugar.

Bake for 10-12 minutes.
So perfect and enjoyed with a cup of your favorite coffee....if these aren't your thing, check out a newer recipe that she's featured this week, cranberry white chocolate scones....don't mind if I do!
