Rustic Cinnamon Raisin Scones

It’s something about that lovely combination of whole grain flour with a little sweetness.

It’s something  about that from the home, fresh and warm comfort food feeling.

It’s something about that traditional cinnamon-raisin-together goodness.

Ever since making these delicious lemon scones, courtesy of the Healthy Everythingitarian, I have had scones on the brain.  I love raisins in baked goods and combined with cinnamon they are always a win.  Plus with these, I also finally got to try out baking with coconut oil, something I have been wanting to do for a long time.  Let’s just say it lived up to all the expectations.  But don’t take my word for it, try it for yourself!

Rustic Cinnamon Raisin Scones

I have no reason for calling this rustic other than that it looks that way to me when I see a picture of it. Give it a try and decide for yourself!

Ingredients (6 Scones)

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup quick cooking oats
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tbsp natural sugar
  • 1/2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2/3 cup hot water
  • 1/4 cup raisins

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • In a large bowl, combine whole wheat flour, oats, soda, powder, cinnamon and sugar. Stir until combined.
  • Meanwhile, in a smaller bowl, melt coconut oil. Add maple syrup, water and vanilla, whisking together.
  • Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix until combined, using your hands if necessary. Add in raisins.
  • Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently until dough is no longer sticky.
  • Flatten onto a baking sheet and score top into six equal pieces.

Have a great weekend!
