Gluten-Free Cranberry Oat Scones
If you love scones, you will cherish these Gluten-Free Cranberry Oat Scones. They are buttery, lightly sweetened, spiced with nutmeg and cinnamon and filled with slightly tart cranberries. The mix of ingredients in these scones creates a better scone than the one you would get from a bakery.
Everyone must have at least one scone recipe they love. This gluten-free cranberry oat scone is the recipe for me. The texture is so perfect, not dry or one that crumbles. It is buttery, sort of flaky and light. The gluten-free scones are always best when slightly warm right out of the oven. I can’t describe how delicious they are. They have a perfect scone texture, and the cranberries add just the right amount of zesty-sweet flavour.
These mega delicious gluten-free oat scones are made with oats, making them wholesome with a rustic flair. It’s like having a bowl of oatmeal for breakfast except better and more satisfying. Most scones are made just with flour, so there isn’t a great amount of nutrient-packed ingredients. In addition to oats I have also added flaxseed, a seed rich in omega 3 fats, fiber and protein. So all in all, this scone is a healthier choice than most, and it tastes delicious!
♥ 5 secrets to your best oat scones.
The butter must be super chilled. To achieve this, place the butter in the freezer for 10 minutes before use.
The butter should be grated on a box grater. Do not try to crumble it with your fingers into small pieces. By grating the butter, you will have even-sized chunks of butter, and they will mix well with the other ingredients.
Do not overwork the dough. If you overwork the dough with your hands, the butter will start melting from the heat of your hands, making the scone texture hard and dry. The butter must melt in the oven to achieve the perfect, slightly crumbly scone texture.
The scones should be placed in the freezer for 10 minutes before baking. By doing this, the texture of the scones will be flakier and lighter.
The dough should be sliced into even pieces leaving one inch space in between each piece. This is done for two reasons. The scones will bake evenly, and you allow for any spreading of the scones.
Following these five steps, you will have the best scones, and this may become your favourite scone recipe.
