     Oats was considered as a best option for those who are on dieting and for weight watchers.

     Rolled oats are traditionally oat groats that have been de-husked, steamed and then rolled into flat flakes under heavy rollers before being stabilized by being lightly toasted. Daily consumption of oats redudes LDL ( Bad ) cholestrol and thereby the risk of heart disease.

      Oats contain more soluble fiber than

 any other grain, resulting in slower

digestion, a feeling of satiety and 

suppression of appetite.  

    I had joined a new group # BreadBakers and the theme for this month is oatmeal by the host Rico.

1 cup rolled oats
1 ½ cup whole wheat flour ( Homemade )
½ tsp salt
2 Tbs baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
½ cup butter
½ cup buttermilk
¼ tsp mixed Italian herbs
1 tsp Red chilli powder 
½ cup chopped spinach
4 leaves of Cuban oregano chopped

Method :

 We make buttermilk by churning curd / yogurt , and the butter is removed and about 1 – 2 cup of water is added. I used this buttermilk in the recipe.

  There is another easy way to make buttermilk without long process -  to 150 ml of milk add about 1 ½ tbsp. of lemon juice. Mix it and let it sit for about 5 minutes. By this time , the milk will be slightly curdles. Mix again and use this in recipe .

 Preheat oven to 200 degree Celsius .

In a bowl , add the oats , wheat flour  , baking powder , baking soda , salt and chilli powder . combine all together with a spatula.

 Add the cold butter to the flour mixture and rub it with fingertips to incorporate with the flour.

Add in the butter milk and make a stiff dough.

Add the mixed herbs and freshly chopped spinach and Cuban oregano to the dough and knead once.

Shape the dough into a round disc of ¾ th inch thickness and cut into wedges .

Arrange in the baking tray and bake for 20 – 25 minutes or till golden brown.

I gave milk- sugar wash on the scones twice while baking.

Cool on rack and serve.

Delicious savory oats scones is ready to serve.

Chef’s recommendation :

I hadn’t use  cheese in the scones , if needed can include grated cheese before adding  buttermilk.
Egg wash can be given instead of  milk sugar wash.
I added the fresh herbs to increase flavor and taste.

    1. Nice idea of using Spinach in scones.....

    2. Can't wait to try these scones when I find out what 200 C converts to.
      This has to be the best recipe in the collection.
