Cooked Oatmeal Scones

Monday, November 17, 2008

taken from Seasonal Ontario Food

2 tablespoons butter - (dairy-free Earth Balance turned out just fine)
2 tablespoons honey
1 cup cooked oatmeal
2/3 cup milk - (rice milk was just fine)
1 3/4 cups soft whole wheat flour (or a bit more)
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

Melt the butter and honey together, and mix them into the cool, cooked oatmeal. (If you are really on top of making these, you can mix the butter and honey into the oatmeal while it is still warm, and set it aside until it is moderately cool.)

Preheat the oven to 350°F.

Mix the milk in with the oatmeal, half at a time.

Mix the flour, baking powder, and salt. You may wish to adjust the salt depending on how much was used in cooking the oatmeal- I am assuming not very much, if any.

Mix the flour into the oatmeal. If the mixture seems too moist, add a little more flour. (This will depend on how moist your cooked oatmeal was. When enough flour has been stirred in, the dough will form a rough ball.)

Roll out to 1" thick and cut in wedges, or scoop it out with an ice cream scoop and flatten it to 1" with dampened hands. Bake on a greased and floured sheet - or parchment paper is easier and neater - at 350°F for 15 to 20 minutes.

These were incredibly light and tasty. I used leftover steel cut oats...
