oatmeal raisin scones with cinnamon-apple sauce

Posted Jun 05 2009 5:07pm

Those familiar with my old food blog will hopefully forgive me for posting a recipe that I included over there. These scones are just too good not to mention again. They are necessarily heavier and definitely not deep-fried like the scones you can buy in restaurants, but they are simply delicious and not too terribly unhealthy for you.

1 1/2 c. whole-wheat pastry flour
1 c. rolled oats
1 1/2 t. baking powder
1 t. cinnamon
1/4 t. nutmeg
1/2 t. salt

1/2 c. olive oil
1/3 c. plant milk
1/4 c. sucanat or brown sugar

1/3 c. raisins

cinnamon-apple sauce:
2 apples, chopped
1/4 c. water
2 T. maple syrup
2 T. cornstarch
1 t. cinnamon
1/4 t. nutmeg

crushed pecans, to garnish

1. Preheat the oven to 375F. Combine dry ingredients.

2. Combine the wet ingredients in a bowl, including the sucanat, and stir into the dry ingredients. Do not overmix. Fold in the raisins.

3. Make a ball with the dough and turn it out onto a floured surface. Press the dough into a 6-inch disc, then cut it into 6 or 8 wedges.

4. Arrange the scones on an oiled baking sheet and bake for 15-18 minutes, until a tester comes out clean.

5. While the scones are baking, combine the ingredients for the sauce in a small saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the sauce is bubbly and thick. Serve the scones with plenty of sauce and sprinkle with crushed pecans.
