Scone Oats

Scones are a tasty breakfast or tea time food. While they are one of the easier & quicker things to bake, they can also be a little tricky if you've never made them before. Today I present you with an oatmeal recipe that is basically eating a scone in oatmeal form! It's quick and easy to make in the mornings whether you're rushed to get to the office or having a leisurely morning meal.

This particular recipe is based off my favorite store bought scones, which can be found at Sainsbury's in London, England or made at home by you (as the recipe is published online in Sainbury's Magazine).

Ingredients

  • Quaker Oats (1/2 cup)
  • Raisins (or Golden Raisins)
  • Lowfat Milk (1 cup)
  • Cinnamon (only a dash)
  • Honey (to taste)
  • Jam (I like raspberry, but other flavors work as well)

Method

  1. Place oats in pot, with raisins, cinnamon, and milk
  2. Bring pot to boil
  3. Once oats boil, remove lid, turn down heat to low-heat, and stir a bit. (The more you stir the creamier it will be! So if you don't want it super creamy then you don't need to stir too much).
  4. Add a drizzle of honey to pot. This will add the sweetness to your oatmeal so add more or less depending on how sweet you'd like it.
  5. After a couple minutes of the oats simmering (and once you see a consistency that appeals to your tastebuds) remove from heat and serve into bowl.
  6. Spoon the jam right on top of your oats (to taste) and pour just a little bit milk over the bowl (to taste).

...and now you have a filling and tasty breakfast for when you don't have time to whip up a batch of actual scones before work!
