Whole Wheat scones

I found this excellent recipe in a Whole Grains cookbook. There is a wide variety of scones. This particular recipe will fill you up because of the high fiber content.


  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 6 tbsp vegan butter (lightly melted)
  • grated zest of one orange
  • 1/3 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/3 golden raisins or additional cranberries
  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 1 banana, mashed
  • 1/2 cup any non-dairy milk, plus more for brushing the scones

Depending on your oven, preheat it at 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

In a food processor grind the rolled oats until looks slightly flour. Transfer to a large bowl. Blend in whole flour, baking powder and baking soda.

Add butter and mix. Stir in the grated orange zest, cranberries and raisins.

Mix banana with applesauce and non-dairy milk in a medium bowl. Pour the liquid into the dry ingredients. Fold the ingredients until they are moistened. Do not over mix.

Turn the dough out into a floured surface. Gently knead 4 to 5 times. The dough should be lightly moist. Shape the dough into two rounds. Cut each round into 6-8 wedges.

Brush the top of the scones with any nut milk.

Makes 12 medium or 16 normal scones.
