1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup AP flour
1/2 cup oats
1/8 tsp. salt
1.5 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
3 Tbsp. butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp. ground cloves
1/8 tsp. ground nutmeg
3 Tbsp honey
1/2 cup lowfat buttermilk
a little buttermilk and sugar for topping, if desired

Preheat oven to 375 and grease a baking sheet.

Sift together whole wheat and AP flours, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir in sugar and oats.

Cut in butter with a pastry blender (or use a food processor) until pea-sized.

Add honey.

Stir in buttermilk until a dough forms (you may need a little less than 1/2 cup).

Knead dough onto a flour surface 8 or 10 times.

Roll and cut the scones any way you like (I used a biscuit cutter; you could just make a circle and cut 8 wedges out of it).

Brush scones with buttermilk and sprinkle sugar on top, if desired.

Bake for 18 minutes or until done.
