Vanilla Bean Oatmeal Scones


Yup, she did it again  
Carrie, the Bakeaholic Mama, came up with this oh, so delicious recipe for wholesome, delicious Vanilla Bean Whole Wheat Banana Oatmeal Scones.  The girls enjoyed these as after school snacks and I was in heaven while sipping my coffee with these in the morning.  I love me a good scone and these are layered with flavors that just work.
Ingredients:
2 cups white whole wheat flower

1/4 cup sugar
1 tbs baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/4 cups quick cooking oats
1/2 cup butter
1/3 cup half and half
1 banana mashed
1 vanilla bean
8tbs vanilla sugar (or just raw sugar)
extra half and half for brushing

Directions:
Preheat oven to 425.
In a medium bowl combine flour, and baking powder.
Cut in butter with a pastry blender until you have pea sized bits.
Mix in sugar, salt, oats. Mix on medium speed in your electric mixer.
Add in half and half, and banana. Mix on medium until its combined.
Split your vanilla been in half length wise scrape the inside with a spoon. Mix in all of the vanilla into your scone mixture.
On a parchment paper lined cookie sheet pat your dough into a disk, about 1 inch thick.
Cut into 8 large triangles (slice like a pizza).
Slightly separate each scone about 1 inch from each other.
Brush with half and half, and sprinkle with vanilla sugar.
Bake for 10-14 minutes until they are golden brown.
