Kittysmum's Oat, Cheese and Apple Scones

These sound rather tasty and the idea of the oatmeal is really appealing from a crazy insulin rushy point of view…

Oat, Cheese and Apple Scones

200g self-raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
50g butter
50g fine oatmeal
1 tsp sugar
125g Cheddar, cut into v little cubes
1 dessert apple, peeled, cored and chopped into small pieces
5 tbsp milk, formula or EBM

Preheat the oven to 200C. Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl. Rub in the butter using your fingertips until it resembles coarse breadcrumbs, then stir through the oatmeal and sugar. Stir in the cheese and apple pieces followed by the milk. Bring the dough together with your hands and pat into a round disc on a floured surface.

Roll out the dough to a thickness of about 2cm/ 3/4 inch. Cut out scones with cutter or knife. Brush the tops with the extra buttermilk and bake for 15 minutes until risen and nicely browned.

Yummy! It might be easier to bake it as one big scone and cut wedge slices out of it.
PS I needed to add a bit more milk than recipe, and they might be able to use a bit more apple.

    Hi there, I have made a batch of these scones & wondered once I’ve cooked them can I freeze them? Thanks, Claire.

      can’t see why not. i’d maybe undercook them by a few mins next time so you can reheat nicely in the oven.

    Have them in the oven right now, smells GOOOOOOOOOOD. My husband can’t wait to taste test them!

      Hi. I found it easier to grate the apple and cheese. I’ve had a wee taste and think they’re great – hope daughter does too!!

    What a fantastic recipe, I loved them and so did my baby. Although he preferred them a little warm so they were softer and easier to bite! Thanks very much!

  4. Jane says:

    These are super-quick to make and taste good. I’ll see tomorrow if LO agrees! I’ll grate the cheese and apple next time, as suggested, because I didn’t chop them super small and found it a big tricky to keep the dough together when cutting them out. I used Tesco instant hot oat cereal (ie Ready Brek) rather than oatmeal, and it seems to have worked fine!

  5. Emma says:

    Has any one used EBM for this? and can u re-heat if you do use it?
    cant wait to try :)

    Great recipe, I’ve just made some for my 6 month old to gum.

    A couple of mistakes though, the first line of the method mentions salt and buttermilk is mentioned later on. Neither of these things are in the ingredients list?

    Brilliant idea about using Ready Brek btw Jane.

  8. Katie says:

    Do I need salt and buttermilk if so how much ? Really want to make these tonight :)

    How many days do these keep for? Can you freeze them?
