How to make oatmeal savory scones

Begin by preheating your oven to 400 F (200 C) and lining a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a medium-large bowl, whisk together the flour, oats, salt, baking powder, and garlic powder.

Add the cubes of butter to the dry ingredients. Using a pastry cutter or fork, cut the butter into the mixture until the pieces are no larger than peas.

Next, add the grated cheese, cooked crispy bacon, and green onion to the bowl. Give it a quick stir to combine with the flour mixture.

In a separate bowl, beat the egg and buttermilk together. Then, add this mixture to the flour mixture, stirring until just combined. Be careful not to overmix.

Transfer the dough onto a floured surface and shape it into a circle about 8 inches (20 cm) in diameter. Then, cut the circle into 8 triangles.

Place the scones onto the prepared baking sheet. Brush the tops with olive oil and sprinkle some oats and salt over them.

Bake the scones in the preheated oven for about 18-20 minutes, or until they turn golden brown.

Once baked, transfer the scones to a cooling rack. They are best served warm.

    What type of oatmeal works bet of this recipe?

    1. Ella - Home Cooking Adventure Author says:

      Use any kind of oats, either small flakes or classic rolled oats.

  2. Hello Ella, the taste of the scone is delicious. But they are so dry.
    What can i do to change that??

    1. Ella - Home Cooking Adventure Author says:

      Not sure why they turned so dry to you. Maybe next time use a bit less flour or a bit less oats. What kind of flour and oats did you use? Try using all-purpose flour not bread flour and you can also consider using fine oats. Also, consider using cheeses like Cheddar or Gouda, or even Mozzarella.
