I have always been a huge fan of scones. Whether it’s for breakfast or a nice afternoon snack scones are perfect for both.

This morning I whipped up one of my favorite scone recipes for breakfast. The oatmeal, raisins, and yogurt make this recipe healthy enough for breakfast, and it’s low sugar content is an added bonus. Using a flavored no fat yogurt (I used strawberry) is key in making these scones very flavorful.

These scones are melt in your  mouth yummy. The texture is perhaps a little bit more moist then a typical tea scone, soft, and slightly fluffy.

Here is the recipe

Oat Scones with Raisins (Inspired by: High Flavor Low Fat Vegetarian Cooking)
(serves 4-5)

1 ½ cups rolled oats
1 ½ cups all purpose flour
¼ cup white sugar
¼ cup unsweetened shredded medium coconut
3 tsp  ground almonds
½ tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt
3 tbsp salted butter
1 serving container of no fat berry yogurt
2 large eggs
½ cup raisins

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl add the: oats, flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, baking soda ground almonds, and coconut. Mix well. Add the raisins. Stir to coat. Cut in the butter. Add the yogurt, and eggs, and stir to form a soft dough. Knead the dough to form a ball. Place on a large cookie sheet. Flatten the ball to form a ½ – 1 inch thick scone. Bake for 20 minutes in preheated oven. Serve warm.
