Oatmeal, Date, and Cinnamon Scones



Oatmeal, Date, and Cinnamon Scones

1/2 cup margarine
1/2 cup all purpose flour
3/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 cup rolled oats
1/3 cup chopped dates
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/3 cup soy milk

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

In a large bowl, blend together flours, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Add margarine and cut in until the mixture has a uniform crumb. Gently stir in oats and chopped dates and walnuts. Form a well in the center of the mixture and add soymilk. Blend together until a soft ball forms. Turn dough onto a floured surface and flatten until it makes a circle about 1/2" thick. Cut into wedges and place each on an ungreased baking stone. Bake for 15 - 18 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and serve with tea.

  5. Oh boy! I am baking something today (because of snowy weather) and this could well be it. It does sound healthful and that's as good a reason as any to mess with the diet.
