BC Scones

It's been too long! Summer is flying by and I can't believe it is August! I will write a longer post soon, but thought I'd share a great recipe for these delicious scones. These are a great treat post long runand swim, best enjoyed on a deck with an iced coffee.

BC Scones (Is the BC for British Columbia, or Blueberry Cherry? Doesn't really matter, they celebrate all that is great about living here.

1 2/3 cups flour (whole grain or whole spelt)
1/4 cup dark brown sugar
1Tbsp baking powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
Pinch salt
1 1/3 cup rolled oats
2 heaping spoonfuls coconut oil or earth balance ( can add up to 1/2 cup to taste)
2/3 cup soy milk plus 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar (or milk of choice)
1/2 cup cherries, pitted and chopped
1/2 cup blueberries
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 425F.

Combine flour, sugar, soda, powder and salt in food processor.

Add 1 cup rolled oats and 2 heaping tablespoons coconut oil or Earth balance and pulse a few times until mealy looking. Add remaining 1/3 cup oats and pulse again.

Transfer to a bowl. Add milk and gently combine, then fold in rest of ingredients.

Divide into two balls, flatten each on a sprinkling of rolled oats, then cut each circle into 4. Bake for about 12-15 minutes.
