Oatmeal Scone with Strawberry Jam Recipe

When I woke up this morning I remembered the oatmeal scone recipe that we made a number of years ago. I hadn’t really thought about it in a long time, so it was kind of out of the blue that it came to me. I’m pretty sure that was my spirit guide telling me to get baking though, heh, and so I did.

This is probably one of the easiest recipes ever, by the way… just mix all the very basic ingredients together, spread it in a circle on a baking sheet and stick it in the oven. Highly recommended if you want to whip up something breakfasty or snackish but don’t want to spend a lot of time doing tricky/messy things in the kitchen.

Oatmeal Scones

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 3/4 cups oats
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup milk
1 egg

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Mix flour, oats, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl until well blended. Add oil, milk, and egg and mix again until well blended.

Grease a cookie sheet. Place mixture in center of cookie sheet. Shape the mixture into a circle, approximately 3/4 inch in height. Bake 12-15 minutes. When done, cut into pie shaped wedges and serve with butter and jam, if desired.

Note: You can drizzle a little maple syrup on the top before baking for an interesting flavor addition.
