Do you realize that I went the entire month of January without posting a single recipe containing chocolate?
A shocking statistic that must be corrected quickly.
So…how about a Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Scone?
I love making these in the morning – kind of like eating a chocolate chip cookie for breakfast. The oatmeal lets you pretend it’s healthy!
The original recipe called for raisins – but of course I substituted chocolate chips – for obvious reasons. 🙂
I’m thinking some craisins or dried cherries would also be yummy.
Just don’t forget some chocolate.
Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Scones
1 cup flour
3 tablespoon brown sugar
1-1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/3 cup butter
1 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup milk
In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, and baking powder.
Using a pastry blender, cut in the butter until the mixture looks like pebbles.
Stir in the oatmeal and chocolate chips. Set aside.
Combine the beaten egg and milk. Add it to the oatmeal mixture and stir until just moistened. It will be sticky.
On a lightly floured surface, pat dough unto a 7 inch circle. Cut into 12 wedges. Place a cookie sheet. Brush with milk.
Bake 400 degrees for 10-12 minutes.
