Oatmeal Spelt Honey Scones

  • 2 cups Spelt (or your choice of flour) 1 cup Spelt & 1 cup baking mix/other flour also works great!
  • 1 scoop Grown American Superfood Powder (can do 2 scoops if you want it a little sweeter)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 ½ oz melted butter or alternative (I use coconut oil)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract or paste
  • 1 tablespoon raw honey
  • ½ cup milk or milk substitute
  • Add in an extra ½ Tablespoon of milk or milk substitute for each scoop of Grown American Superfood Powder that you include in the recipe
  • 1 cup pitted dates or figs cut into smaller pieces (can be dried or fresh)
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • *Can add in 1/2-3/4 cup of chocolate chips and/or dried coconut if desired

Preheat oven to 200 degrees C/400 degrees F Combine flour, baking powder, Grown American Superfood Powder and cinnamon in a bowl
Gently rub in the butter or butter substitute with your fingers Add the dried fruit
Combine the milk (or milk substitute), honey, vanilla in a separate bowl, then pour it into the dried ingredients Mix lightly to form a soft sticky dough
Sprinkle half of the oats onto a sheet pan (lined or unlined – the oats make it not stick)
Flatten down slightly then sprinkle the rest of the oats on top Gently press down until the scone dough is about 1 inch (or 2 cm) thick
I find it easier to bake first, cut later, but if desired, you can cut them into rounds or holiday cookie shapes with cutters or into squares with a sharp knife before cooking Bake for 20 minutes or until lightly golden brown Serve warm or at room temperature
