I already have several awesome recipes for scones, but I love trying out new flavor variations. I am a big fan of scones with fruit and nuts, but my kiddos prefer a more plain scone. I like to pack them with a little nutrition, so this version is filled with fiber from whole wheat, oats, and nuts. My kids were none the wiser, and gobbled them up just as fast as a plate of doughnuts. Score!

These scones have a nice sweet flavor from the brown sugar, and they are good just on their own. But of course the maple glaze on top makes them extra special!

I actually ended up having some glaze left over, but you can slather it on if you prefer.

  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flours, oats, pecans, baking powder, soda, salt, and brown sugar.
  • Use a pastry cutter to cut in the butter till it is pea sized.
  • Add the buttermilk and maple flavoring and stir lightly just till flour is moistened. If you need to, you can add a couple more teaspoons of buttermilk. Don't overwork the dough.
  • Dump dough onto a lightly sprayed or floured counter top. Press together, then cut into 2 pieces.
  • Press each section into a 6" circle. Cut in 8 wedges and place on lightly greased or lined cookie sheets.
  • Bake at 375° for 18-20 minutes or till lightly browned. Cool for 5 minutes, then drizzle with glaze.
  • Stir together glaze ingredients, adding milk as needed. Drizzle over scones.

  1. Oh my goodness these are good! They were easy to make and the texture is just right. I’m testing out scone recipes to take to a bridal brunch, and I think I have found a winner! Thanks so much for posting this recipe :)

    We enjoyed these. Slight variation on your recipe: I don’t care for nuts, so I tried this with chopped dates. Big hit!
