Maple Scones– Filled with oats and chopped pecans, then drizzled with maple glaze, these scones are sure to be a hit!
Homemade biscuits and scones are a favorite breakfast treat at my house. We also love Chocolate Orange Scones and Easy Cinnamon Glazed Drop Biscuits. I like whipping up a double batch and storing the extras in the freezer so we always have them on hand.
We have a particular affinity for scones at our house. I love them filled with fruit, but my kiddos prefer a more plain scone. I like to pack them with a little nutrition, so this version is filled with fiber from oats, nuts, and whole wheat. My kids were none the wiser, and gobbled them up just as fast as a plate of doughnuts. Score!
These scones have a hearty flavor and texture, and I loved the crunch from the oats and the pecans. They are a new favorite scone recipe at our house, because everyone loved them. I’m sure that had nothing to do with the fact that they were drizzled with glaze. 😉
I actually ended up having some glaze left over, but you can slather it on if you prefer. Either way, this is a perfect recipe for anyone who loves maple!
If you’ve never made scones before, you should really give it a try. They are so easy to whip up, and they are ready in under 30 minutes! I like to serve them with fresh fruit and scrambled eggs, but you could also serve them on the go with a smoothie.
HOW TO MAKE MAPLE SCONES WITH PECANS
- all purpose flour
- whole wheat flour (freshly ground is best!)
- oats (old fashioned or quick will work)
- baking powder
- baking soda
- brown sugar
- cold butter
- maple flavoring
- powdered sugar
In a large bowl combine dry ingredient and butter. Use a pastry cutter to cut the butter till mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add the buttermilk and maple flavoring and stir lightly just till flour is moistened. Don’t overwork the dough or your scones will be tough.
Divide dough in half and press each section into a 6″ circle. Cut in 8 wedges and place on lightly greased baking sheets.
Bake at 375° for 18-20 minutes or till lightly browned. Cool for 5 minutes, then drizzle with glaze.
Stir together glaze ingredients, adding milk as needed. Drizzle over scones.
HOW TO STORE SCONES
-You can store these scones in an airtight container at room temperature for 3-4 days. If you want to store them for longer, you can freeze them. I like to freeze mine in large freezer ziplock bags. They will keep for 3-4 months in the freezer.
-It works best to freeze them without the glaze and add it before you serve them. I like to place them in the microwave for about 30 seconds, but you can let them thaw at room temperature. You can freeze them with the glaze on them, but it tends to make a bit of a mess.
Go on, give these maple oat scones a try. Be a scone family like we are. 🙂
