Cinnamon Oatmeal Tea Party Scones
Preheat your oven to 375
Mix all the dry ingredients together:
1 1/4 c. King Arthur's whole wheat flour
1/3 c. brown sugar (I definitely do not use actual brown sugar! I use the Ideal brand xylitol brown sugar)
1 t. baking powder
1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. sea salt
2 t. cinnamon
-With the back of a fork, cut in:
1/2 c. coconut oil (or vegan butter)
-until a uniform crumbled texture forms
1 c. old fashioned oats
1 c. finely crushed walnuts
-Note: you could also throw in 1/3 c. of dried fruit such as cranberries, raisins, or dates
-Add slowly, while stirring gently:
1/3 c. unsweetened almond milk
-Mix until a ball forms that will stay together. (You may have to add 1-2 T. more of the almond milk)
-Turn out onto a floured surface and press into a circle that's about 7" in diameter (roughly...it's not like this is geometry class!)
-Cut into 8 wedges and place on an ungreased cookie sheet
-If you'd like, sprinkle a little more of the xylitol sugar over the top, along with some cinnamon...this adds an extra touch of sweetness!
-Bake for 15-18 minutes or until the center of a wedge is slightly firm to the touch!
-Note: if you're using these for a child's tea party, I cut each wedge into 4 or 5 wedges, so that they fit on those ridiculously tiny plates! Enjoy!
