“My aunt makes these for breakfast every time I visit - they are a great breakfast with fruit and yogurt and my favorite part of visiting. My mom makes a half batch during the week for breakfast as well. A full batch will make about 30-36 scones depending on scoop size.”
30-36 scones

  3. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, oats, salt, baking soda, cinnamon and baking powder.
  4. Cut in the cold butter until mixture resembles coarse meal.
