Mom’s Oat Scones

It was time to bake something. I chose a recipe Melanie got from her Mom for Oat Scones. They are made with steel cut oats in addition to white and wheat flour. They turn out hearty and healthy. Below is the recipe you can print out if you wish.


Mom's Oat Scones

  • Servings: 8 wedges
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print


  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup wheat flour
  • 1 cup oats…may be rolled, quick, steel cut, or old fashioned
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1 Tsp sugar…white or brown
  • 1/4 cup cold butter cut into several squares
  • 1/2 cup milk


Mix the dry ingredients. May use a food processor pulsed a few times. Add the cold butter pieces. Pulse the processor to cut in the butter.

Place the mix into a bowl and add the milk. Stir to form a soft dough. Flour a surface. Pat out the dough to form a circle 1/2 inch thick. Cut into wedges and place on a greased baking sheet.

Bake at 425˚ for 15 minutes or until golden. Serve warm with butter and honey.

Here is a very close up view to show the texture. Nice and flaky. Great with coffee or tea.

    I like the family recipe that you select to make.The scones look delicious and perfect to eat with a cup of coffee (and the recipe looks easy to make). This is my kind of recipe.

    I’ve just discovered steel cut oats, and really like them. I do a baked oatmeal that can be made the night before, then popped in the oven when I get up in the morning. There’s nothing more luxurious than the smell of baking something in the morning.

    I do love scones. I’m going to give this a try. Thanks for posting it.

      We’ve been enjoying our scones. Today, I must forego. I have my annual exam and must fast for a blood test. I will eat one later, tho.

      I hope they turn out well.
