Apple And Oat Scones



Ingredients
1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
1/4 cup ground flaxseed
1/3 cup light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 sticks cold unsalted butter, cut into pieces
1 1/2 cups diced Granny Smith apples, cut into 1/4 inch cubes
2/3 cup cold buttermilk


Directions
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Whisk together flour, oats, flaxseed, brown sugar, ground cinnamon, nutmeg, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
2. Cut in butter with a pastry blender, or rub together with your fingers.
3. Add apples and buttermilk, and mix until dough just comes together.
4. Divide dough in half, and pat into two round disks onto a floured work surface. Cut circles into eights.
5. Place scones about 2 inches apart on a Silpat baking sheet. Bake until golden brown, about 20 minutes.

I had some leftover royal icing from sugar cookies, so I topped them with that for a little more sweetness. You can find that recipe here.
