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.
