Cranberry-Orange Oatmeal Scones

These scones are all-in-one wholesome and hearty!  They taste good, look good and are good for those of us who can’t get enough of that low-glycemic stuff!  Make a big batch, since they freeze well.  Enjoy!


1 cup of oatmeal (not instant)
1 ½ cups whole wheat flour
¼ cup of maple syrup
1 ½ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt, optional
5 tablespoons chilled unsalted butter, cut into small cubes
1 egg
¼ cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
1 teaspoon almond extract
½ cup raw cranberries, coarsely chopped
½ tablespoon orange zest
¼ cup of either hazelnuts, walnuts or pecans, coarsely chopped and toasted

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
Combine the first 6 ingredients (oatmeal through salt, if using) in a food processor bowl. Pulse about 10 times to sift.
Add the butter and pulse again about 30 times or until coarse crumbs form.
In a separate large bowl, whisk together the next 6 ingredients (egg through hazelnuts).
Add the flour mixture to the egg mixture and combine well to form the dough.
Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface to form a round 8” x ½”.
Place the round on the prepared cookie sheet and cut into 8 equal triangles, leaving some space in between pieces.
Bake for 20 minutes.
