Maple Whole-Wheat Oatmeal Scones

maple oatmeal scones

I made these last weekend and WOW are they delicious.  The maple syrup in the batter really makes these scones something special. They are moist and flavorful and a perfect pairing with your morning coffee! I thought the original recipe would make too much so I halved it and it still made 10 scones, more than enough for two people.  Enjoy!

Maple Whole-Wheat Oatmeal Scones (Adapted from this Ina Garten recipe)

Scone Ingredients:

  • 2 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup quick cooking oats, plus additional for garnish
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 Tsp salt
  • 2 sticks cold unsalted butter, diced
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup cold buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 extra-large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 egg beaten with 1 Tbsp water for egg wash
Glaze Ingredients: (and trust me, you WANT the glaze)
  • 5oz confectioners syrup
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.  In a bowl combine flour, oats, baking powder, sugar and salt.  Blend the cold butter in at the lowest speed with a paddle attachment for a mixer OR you can use your hands (which will get really messy).  Combine the buttermilk, maple syrup, vanilla and eggs and then add to the flour/butter mixture.  Mix until blended.  Dough will be really sticky.
-Option 1 (from the original recipe): Dump the dough out on to a floured surface.  Flour hands and a rolling-pin and roll the dough to 3/4 to 1 inch thickness.  Cut into 3 inch rounds with a cutter and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
-Option 2 (what I did because I am lazy, haha): Take huge heaping tablespoons of dough and make a biscuit shape with hands. Drop onto cookie sheet lined with parchment or sprayed with cooking spray.
NEXT: Brush tops with egg wash.  Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until tops are crisp and the insides are done.
For glaze: combine all 3 ingredients in a bowl, whisk until smooth.  When the scones are done, allow to cool for 5 minutes and then drop 1 tablespoon of glaze on each (or more if you like, I just continued doing this til all of the glaze was gone).  Sprinkle scones with additional oatmeal because it looks pretty. Enjoy with coffee, or hot cocoa.
