Baked Sunday Mornings: I'm Back!


Life is slowly returning to the new normal -- life with two kids and a traveling husband -- so I have finally been able to return to Baked Sunday Mornings.  The group is actually now baking from two books: Baked Explorations and the new book, Baked Elements.  These are from the latter book.  I have been following along, but the last few recipes have been more complicated than I could do at the time.  However, when I saw these Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip scones, I thought they would be the perfect thing to mark my return.

These were a snap to put together and full of delicious ingredients.  Sometimes, scones can be dry, but I think the addition of the peanut butter and the chewiness of the oats keep them nice and moist.  I actually thought mine were a little underdone when I looked at them, but it turns out that that is just how they look.  I really enjoyed this combination.  The peanut butter is not overwhelming and you can really taste each of the ingredients.  The only thing I would change is that the scones were huge!  I would cut them into smaller pieces, because I'm not sure anyone can finish one in one sitting.  You can find the recipe here and be sure to check back to see what other bakers have done.

  3. Yes, a smaller size is a good idea. And it is nice to come across a recipe that is so simple and easy to pull together in little time.

  5. That's a great photo of your scone. I also thought they were a little large and ened up cutting them in half. This was a great first day back recipe.

  6. Welcome back - join in anytime you can find the time! Your scones look super moist. Mine were kind of craggly.

  7. Welcome Back! Our scones were cut in half as well-half a scone was just the right saving size;-) I agree-these scones were full of delicious ingredients!

  8. Welcome back! I am new to the group and it's great so far. I'd never baked scones in one big circle so I was also worried that they wouldn't bake all the way through; they were fine, though.
