Servings 10 scones

Ingredients
  

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup salted butter cold & cubed
  • 1 heaping cup Quaker® Simply Granola Oats Apples, Cranberries & Almonds OR Quaker® Simply Granola Oats, Honey Raisin & Almonds
  • 1/2 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-2 tablespoon turbinado sugar for sprinkling

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 375°F
  • Line a baking sheet/pan with parchment paper. I use a pizza pan.
  • In a large mixing bowl - whisk together flour, granulated sugar, baking powder and salt.
  • Using a pastry blender, cut in cubed butter until texture is of coarse crumbs.
  • Break up any large clusters of granola. I pour it in a sealed sandwich bag and press down on it a few times with the measuring cup.
  • Stir granola & chocolate chips into flour mixture.
  • In a separate bowl, combine buttermilk, egg & vanilla extract.
  • Pour buttermilk mixture into flour mixture. Stir until combined - do not over mix.
  • Press out ball of dough directly onto parchment lined pan. Press into 8"-9" circle.
  • Sprinkle with turbinado sugar.
  • Using a pizza cutter (or knife if you don't have a pizza cutter) slice scones into 8 slices.
  • Bake for 18 - 20 minutes or until tops are just light golden brown.
  • Remove from oven and transfer scones, still on parchment paper, onto wire rack.
  • Scones are best served a little warm & with butter, jams & fruit butters. Scones are best eaten the same day as baked, but can be stored covered for a day or two.
  • Enjoy : )
