apple oatmeal scones

Prep Time: 20 min     Total Time: 55 min     Yield: Makes 10-12


  • 1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour + extra for working dough
  • 1 1/3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats + extra as a topping
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) cold unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  • 1 1/2 cups diced Granny Smith apple in 1/4-inch cubes
  • 2/3 cup cold buttermilk + extra for brushing the tops
  • Raw coarse-grain brown sugar for sprinkling


  • 1

    Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

  • 2

    In a large bowl, add flour, oats, and brown sugar. Whisk together and while mixing, add cinnamon, nutmeg, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

  • 3

    Cut in the cold butter pieces with a pastry blender until the butter breaks down into pea-sized chunks. Use your fingers to mash the butter pieces into small flat disks.

  • 4

    Add the diced apples and cold buttermilk, stirring just until the dough comes together.

  • 5

    Flour a flat working surface and turn out the dough. It will be sticky, so flour your hands too. Pat scone dough into a 6-inch by 8-inch rectangle and then cut into ten or twelve 2-inch squares with a floured knife.

  • 6

    Line a baking sheet with parchment, and then place your scones about 2 inches apart on the parchment. Brush tops of scones with the extra buttermilk and sprinkle with raw sugar and extra oats.

  • 7

    Bake your scones until golden brown (about 20 to 22 minutes), rotating the sheets halfway through baking time. Remove and let cool for 15 minutes. Serve warm.
