Apple Cinnamon Scones
Serving Size / Yield
- 1/2 C. all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
- 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
- 1/3 C. margarine
- 1 small apple, peeled and cored
- 1 C. quick-cooking rolled oats
- 2 egg whites
- 2 Tbs. apple juice or skim milk
Combine flour, 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.
