(Cooked) Oatmeal Scones

Phil is rightly tired of oatmeal – we have been having it for breakfast for quite some time; however, I still had a bunch of cooked oatmeal left in the fridge today.  What to do?  Search the internet for recipes with cooked oatmeal.

I found a few that looked pretty neat, but decided on making these oatmeal scones.

Cooked Oatmeal Scones (adapted from this recipe – I had more cooked oatmeal than the recipe called for and adjusted the flour accordingly and added some dried cranberries and brown sugar)

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 cup cooked oatmeal
  • 2/3 cup skim milk
  • 1 3/4 cups flour (I definitely used more, my cooked oatmeal was pretty wet)
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries (optional)
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar (optional)

Directions

  1. Melt the butter and honey together, and mix them into the cool, cooked oatmeal.
  2. Mix in the milk, half at a time.
  3. Mix the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  4. Add the salt.  If you want a more savory scone, add more salt.
  5. Mix the flour into the oatmeal.
  6. If the mixture seems too moist, add a little more flour.  This will depend on how moist your cooked oatmeal was. When enough flour has been stirred in, the dough will form a rough ball.
  7. Roll out to 1″ thick and use a biscuit cutter or cup to cut.
  8. Brush the tops of the scones with some milk and put some turbinado sugar on top (if you want – I did half with and half without).
  9. Bake on greased and floured sheets at 350°F for 9 minutes.  Rotate and move the sheets from top to bottom of the oven.  Bake for another 9 minutes or until golden brown.

I definitely could have rolled these out thicker, but they are still pretty tasty!  New breakfast food.

    These look awesome! Should you find yourself in this predicament again, I made some very hearty pancakes the other day with cooked steel cut oats, ground flax seed, and crumbled walnuts. Just kind of mushed it all up with an egg and some milk and a little apple cider vinegar and flour and baking soda, plus a little molasses and spices, and they were great.
