Raspberry Oatmeal Scones

Posted by on May 9, 2019 in blog

I can’t lie, I have a bit of a sweet tooth. Okay…a lot of a sweet tooth…and especially in the morning. Pancakes, croissants, muffins, crepes…I love anything sweet for breakfast. But, not everyone in my family does. So these scones were a happy medium due to the fact that they are so subtly sweet! Plus the oatmeal makes it just feel a bit more healthy…

These scones are perfect for Mother’s Day brunch, breakfast in bed (psst: pass this recipe along to your kids and husbands!), or even to box up and give to Mom. We will warn you though: it’s hard to just eat one!

Something I will note though: you probably notice that my scones are quite pink. I used frozen raspberries for this recipe, and while they tasted great, they were a bit too wet to form into a great scone. It turned out to be more like a wedge-shaped muffin. That is why I highly recommend using fresh berries instead of the frozen ones. That way you get the full scone flavor and texture and still a dash of pink.

From all of us at Mama Jess, we hope you Mamas have a fabulous Mother’s Day, you deserve it!

Xoxo, Claire and the Mamas at Mama Jess
