Yum Ranch Scones with Oats and Spelt

We were out of bread, out of crackers and soup was on the menu. What to do for a quick addition to the supper? These scones were the perfect answer. There was not one left after supper. If you don’t have the spelt flour, use unbleached white flour.

Yum Ranch Scones with Oats and Spelt

Preheat oven to 425°F

1 cup rolled oats
2 cups white spelt flour
½ teaspoon of baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon of salt
¼ cup butter
1 cup of buttermilk or sour milk

1) Put rolled oats In the food processor and process to create oat flour. (The oat flour does not need to be completely fine. It is OK to have a few flakes.)

Rolled oats in the food processor.

After processing the oats should look like this.

2) To oat flour  in the food processor, add the rest of the dry ingredients and butter cut into 8 smaller cubes. Then process until the texture of cornmeal.

  3. I bet these will be a hit! They sound delicious. I don’t own a food processor but I’m sure I can just buy some oat flour. Thanks for sharing!

      Yes, you can certainly get some oat flour. Or make the oat flour in a regular blender from rolled oats, then just cut in the butter using 2 knives or a pastry blender.
      For a long time I resisted getting a food processor, but I really use it a lot.
      Happy baking!
