Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 cup Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1/2 cup Oatmeal
  • 1/4 cup Splenda
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon (Original called for 1/2 tsp)
  • 1/4 cup Sugar
  • 3/4 tsp Baking Powder
  • 3/4 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 8 Tbsp Light Butter, cut in pieces
  • 7/8 cup Lowfat Buttermilk
  • 1 Tbsp Turbinado Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Cinnamon Chips

1. Preheat the oven to 375?F.

2. In a bowl, combine all the dry ingredients. Using a pastry blender, cut the cold butter into the dry ingredients until the dough is crumbly. Fold in the cinnamon chips. Add the buttermilk and stir lightly until the dough comes together to form a ball. Don't overwork the dough.

3. Line baking sheet with wax paper or parchment and spray with Pam. Drop by 1/4 cup spoonfuls onto a baking sheet. (Or - On a lightly floured surface, pat the dough into a large circle about 2 inches thick. Cut the dough into wedges.) Sprinkle the tops with turbinado sugar, which is a raw, crystallized sugar.

4. Bake for 22 minutes, or until the edges are lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack.


MY NOTES AND THOUGHTS:

1. Now, I'm not a "scone-conniousseur" but I've eaten a couple in my life, usually with some full on heavy whipping cream to slather them with. These fit the bill perfectly....
