Raspberry Oat Scones

January is National Hot Tea month. What better to go with a cup of tea than a warm scone?  January also being a month of resolutions to eat more healthy, I went looking for a scone recipe that had some nutritious value but still tasted great.  These scones are chock full of old-fashioned oats and fresh raspberries and get their bold flavor from ginger and lemon zest.  As far as scones go, they baked up moist with a lovely crumb.  Spread them with a smear of raspberry jam to sweeten them up, if desired.

Raspberry Oat Scones

Adapted from Good Housekeeping

  • 1 1/2 cups of old-fashioned oats, plus more for topping
  • 2 cups unbleached flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter(1 stick)
  • 6 onces of fresh raspberries
  • 1/4 cup candied ginger, finely chopped
  • zest of a lemon, finely grated
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  1. Preheat oven to 400 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a food processor, pulse the oats, flour, sugar, baking powder and baking soda until finely ground. Add the cold butter and pulse until coarse crumbs form.  Transfer to a large bowl.
  3. Using a wooden spatula, fold in the raspberries, ginger, lemon zest and buttermilk.  Flour your  hands and finish kneading gently until the dough just binds together.
  4. Turn the dough onto the parchment lined pan and pat the dough into a circle mound.  Score the dough into 12 slices.  Sprinkle the dough with some additional oats.
  5. Bake 27 to 30 minutes until golden on the edges.  Let cool at least 10 minutes before cutting into triangular scones. Makes a dozen.

    • Hi Mollie! I was admiring your festive Mardi Gras scones and hoping to teleport myself to MN for a cup of the great local Tea Source Earl Grey(which I now order online) along with one of your scones! What a Super Bowl game this year. Sorry for your Vikings but so happy for our Eagles. Minneapolis was a perfect host town. Xoxo

      • I love the Tea Source, but I’ve only been to the old original one. I see they have three locations now! Wow! Now I’m going to have to go visit! It was such a bummer about the Vikings, but the Eagles did a great job. At least we can say we were beat by the best, right!
