Lemon Poppy Seed Oat Scones

Lemon Poppy Seed Scones

This was a true experiment as I tried a couple of different things that I had no idea if they would work out at all. Thing number one: I used a 1/3 cup of oat flour (to 2/3 cup AP flour). Thing number two: I subbed half the butter with olive oil. Did this make a healthier Lemon Poppy Seed Scone? Yes I think so. And were they still very good? Yes! They were actually pretty delicious! I think I’m going to make these again very soon.

If you don’t want to try my substitutions, use 1 cup AP flour and 4 tbsp butter. I will not judge…

Using a pastry cutter or two knives, cut in butter until mixture resembles very coarse meal. Pour in milk, olive oil, then add the 2 tbsp lemon juice, stirring just until dough forms.

Using your hands, gather dough together and gently press into a ball. Transfer dough to a parchment-lined baking sheet and shape into an 5-inch disk.

Cut into 4 or 6 wedges and separate so scones are about 1 inch apart.

Bake until golden, about 12 to 14 minutes. Transfer scones to a wire rack and let cool, about 20 minutes. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix confectioners’ sugar with remaining lemon juice and stir until smooth.
