Maple Oat Nut Scones Like Starbucks

I have never had the original so I can only speak to the imitation. The say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, so Starbucks be flattered.

As I mentioned with the last scones that I made, coldness of ingredients is one of the keys to a great scone. So I kept my cold ingredients in the refrigerator for as long as possible, this is where a good kitchen triangle comes in very handy.

The recipe called for pecans but all I had were walnuts and sliced almonds so I went with walnuts.

I ground my oatmeal (please don’t laugh at my processor, it has seen better times). I loved the flavour that the oatmeal gave the scone. I had thought that maybe it would be heavy but it was very light. I don’t know if it was the grounded oats or ingredient combo.

I prepped my dough the night before kept it in the refrigerator overnight and the straight into a pre-heated oven the following morning.

This is definitely on my to make again list. Next time I may add dried fruit. I t was a super duper delicious scone.

Wonderful for breakfast, brunch or lunch.

My submission for 52 weeks of baking, week 14.
