I cannot get enough of these Oatmeal scones! I keep making different versions and flavors and always come out so good. This “Orange and Cranberry” version might be my favorite so far. I might never do scones the old fashion way again. Oatmeal is just so easy to work with and so good for you! These scones are gluten free (I use a combination of oats and almond flour) dairy free and also refined sugar free. I sweeten the scones with pure maple syrup. I do use a little powder sugar for the icing but that’s totally optional. Ok, I am kidding. It’s not optional, you need to make the icing, its so delicious. You can really taste the orange and since the scones are not overly sweet it complements them so good.
This dough it’s a little wet but It is not hard to work with. Just rub a little oil on the palm on your hands if it gets too sticky. I like to form a circle with my hands on a piece of parchment paper and cut the circle into eights. Transfer to a prepared baking sheet, reshape a little bit and bake for 15 minutes.
Aren’t they lovely? The oatmeal gives the scones such a great texture. It is hard to believe there’s no butter or heavy cream involved in here.

Hello, my name is Marisol Chancellor. I was born and raised in Monterrey Mexico. I’ve been living in Texas for 12 years and even when I love barbeque, fruit cobblers and sweet tea, there’s something that has the power of transporting me right back to my mom’s kitchen and gives me a little piece of home, cooking. I grew up in the kitchen and for me, memories are always linked to food, and behind the food, well, there’s always a story that comes along. So, please let me share with you my love for cooking and while we are at it, let’s share some memories, because let’s be honest, we are also hungry for nostalgia.
