Put the kettle on and pour yourself a cup of tea -- it's time to treat yourself to a scone with the right amount of chewy, nutty flavor thanks to a mix of rolled oats and all-purpose and whole wheat flours.

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a medium bowl, whisk together flours, baking powder, salt, brown sugar, oats, raisins, and fennel seed, if using. In a small bowl, whisk together butter, egg, and buttermilk until combined, then add to flour mixture. Stir until batter is evenly moistened (do not overmix). Drop batter by 1/3 cupfuls, 2 inches apart, onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake until golden brown, 15 minutes, rotating sheet halfway through. Let scones cool on a wire rack, 5 minutes.

The dough was watery, more like a muffin batter.

My scone dough turned out more like a batter....Too thin. I baked them off anyway and they spread out more like a cookie.(perhaps I should have added a bit more flour?) They still tasted good, but definitely not like a scone. I could have sworn that I followed the exact measurements. Oh well, maybe next time....

Love me some scones. I added one extra tablespoon of the dark brown sugar to the mixture then glazed the top by mixing sugar and milk then drizzled the top. Yummy!!

I can't believe no one has reviewed this recipe. It's very good. Fast, simple and delicious. I followed it to the letter. Don't omit the fennel seeds. They add a great flavor. Next time I will make a double batch and see how they freeze.
