Peanut Butter and Jam Scones

Peanut Butter and Jam Oat Scones 


makes about 8


1 1/2 cups rolled oats 
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (gluten-free flour is fine too!) 
1/4 teaspoon salt 
1 heaping tablespoon baking powder
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1/3 cup agave syrup
1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted 
1/2 cup peanut butter (I used smooth, but I think chunky would be better)
1/2 cup milk 
8 tablespoons raspberry jam
1 tablespoon turbinado sugar

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. 

In a medium bowl whisk together oats, flour, salt, and baking powder. 

In another medium bowl, stir together the egg, agave syrup, butter, milk, and peanut butter.

Gently stir the wet ingredients into the oat mixture just until moistened.

Using a 1/3 cup measuring cup, scoop a ball of dough. Make a well with your thumb in the center of the ball. Fill with 1 tablespoon of jam. Flatten another 1 tablespoon of dough and press over the jam to seal. Roll the dough between  your hands to form a smooth ball and place on cookie sheet. Continue until all dough has been used up, spacing scones 2-inches apart. Sprinkle with turbinado sugar. Bake 12-15 minutes, until golden brown and crisp on the edges. When completely cooked, you should not be able to see any gooey dough through the cracks. Cool 5 minutes on the cookie sheet and serve warm.
