Directions

Combine the flours, baking powder, and cinnamon in a bowl. Cut in the margarine until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Chop the apple. Stir in the apple and rolled oats. Add the egg whites, apple juice or milk, and honey; mix well. The dough will be sticky.

Spray a baking sheet with nonstick coating. Pat dough into a 7-inch circle on the baking sheet with floured hands. Use a long, thin-bladed spatula to cut into 12 wedges. Separate the wedges, leaving 1/4 inch between them. Brush with a little skim milk. Bake in a 400 degree oven until golden, 10-12 minutes. Serve warm.

Variation: Orange-Cinnamon Scones: Prepare the Apple-Cinnamon Scones as above, except stir 1 tsp. finely shredded orange peel into the flour mixture and substitute 1/2 C. currants for the apple and 3 Tbs. orange juice for the apple juice. Shape and bake as directed.
