Oatmeal Scone

Minoo made a Oatmeal Scone in the Caring Place Community Kitchen to go with Manijeh’s Pilaf.  Minoo always shares healthy recipe in the community kitchen to promote healthy eating lifestyle.


This recipe is adapted from Eat Well.  This Oatmeal Scone is great for breakfast.  It has a hint of cinnamon and filled the goodness of oatmeal and flax seed.  You can add raisins or dried cranberries to this recipe for added sweetness.

    Is there a way to make this recipe without dairy products (perhaps soy?) since I have Lactose issues?

    Hi Patti Lee, I’m sure this recipe can be substituted with soy or rice milk. You might want to adjust the amount slightly as the buttermilk is of a thicker consistency.
