Oatmeal Cinnamon Scones

What you need: 

1 1/4 cups whole wheat pastry or all purpose flour
1/3 cup brown sugar (use 1/2 cup for sweeter scone)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup vegan margarine or shortening
1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1/3 cup raisins, optional
1/2 cup nuts, chopped, optional
1/3 cup vanilla or plain nondairy milk (I use soy)

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon together in a large bowl. Cut in margarine until mixture becomes uniformly crumbly.
2. Stir in oats, raisins, and nuts (if using). Add milk and mix gently until a soft dough begins to cling together. Turn dough out onto a floured surface and pat it into a 7" circle.
3. Cut into 8 wedges and place them on an ungreased baking sheet. Just before baking, sprinkle scone wedges with granulated sugar for a sweeter taste. Bake 15-18 minutes until golden brown and firm when pressed lightly in the center.
Substitute any other dried fruit you wish: cranberries, chopped dates or apricots, blueberries, cherries, dried apples or pears.
These tender, crumbly scones are satisfying and not too sweet. A good choice for children’s snacks or a Sunday brunch. They are a wonderful way to get your children to eat more wholesome whole wheat if they are used to white flour.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

I followed the recipe to a T but the dough was extremely dry. The scones tasted very much like its raw ingredients - I mean you could taste the flour, the sugar, the cinnamon, the baking powder, etc. I don't know what happened.  :(

I made this with a super cute picture that won't load >:(
But the scones were good. I subbed applesauce for some of the oil, and it worked. I added extra oil later, the oatmeal made an un-sconelike texture though, but I love oatmeal, so I am not complaining.

These turned out awesome! I substituted applesauce for butter and added a little bit of oil. I also used regular milk instead of soy.

These came out good. I used applesauce instead of margarine and blueberries instead of raisins.

xxLExx- Good question.  I don't really think so.  To reduce the fat, you *may* be able to use half margarine/ half applesauce.  If you do that, I'm pretty certain you'd need to reduce the soymilk, too.  Sorry I can't help you more.  There are a lot of great bakers on Vegweb, so you may want to ask over in the Q & A.

do you think applesauce could be used instead of the margarine?

YUM!  I think because I ate some of the batter before I added the milk, the dough was moist enough with the recommended amount of soy milk.  Turned out delicious, I ate four right away.  I used 1/2 a cup of sugar and they eat almost like a cookie. 
I am definitely going to make these again!
