Why I Love This Recipe

This recipe is from the Quaker Oats website. I usually sub half of the flour with whole wheat pastry flour for a little more whole grain. These freeze very wrapped in plastic wrap and the foil.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup QUAKER® Oats (quick or old fashioned, uncooked)
1/3 cup plus 2 teaspoons granulated sugar, divided
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt (optional)
3 tablespoons margarine or butter, chilled, cut into small pieces
2/3 cup plain nonfat yogurt
2 egg whites or 1 egg, slightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup finely chopped fresh Bartlett pear (about 1 medium)


Heat oven to 400°F.

Lightly spray large cookie sheet with no-stick cooking spray.

In large bowl, combine dry ingredients, reserving 2 teaspoons sugar for topping.

Cut in margarine with pastry blender or two knives until mixture resembles course crumbs.

In separate bowl, combine yogurt, egg whites and vanilla; mix well.

Add to dry ingredients; mix just until moistened.

Gently stir in chopped pear until evenly distributed.

Drop by 1/4 cupfuls onto prepared cookie sheet.

Sprinkle 1/8 teaspoon of remaining sugar on each scone.

Bake 16 to 18 minutes or until light golden brown.

Serve warm.

Recommended storage: Freeze completely cooled scones in tightly wrapped foil or freezer bags. To reheat, unwrap and microwave on HIGH about 30 seconds per scone.
