Oatmeal Apple Scones

I have really missed spiced apple donuts since going gluten-free. These scones are reminiscent of the scents and flavors of autumn from my youth and young adult life. They are very easy to make and keep the kitchen smelling heavenly. Enjoy them warm or at room temperature. Like all scones, they are fragile, so be careful when spreading on the butter or jam. ~ Glyn

Oatmeal Apple Scones (makes 8)
6 tbs butter, softened (or vegan substitute)
1 c oats
1 c oat flour
2 tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
½ tsp cinnamon
½ tsp cardamom
1 dash nutmeg
1 apple, grated
1 egg beaten (or vegan substitute)
¼ c currants or raisins
¼ c finely chopped walnuts
½ c coconut milk or cream
1 tsp agave nectar (optional)

Preheat the oven to 425. Stir together the oat flour, the oats, salt baking soda and spices. Cut in the butter with two knives or a pastry blender. Stir in the nuts and currants. Add the egg, cream and grated apple to make a soft dough. If necessary, add additional cream or milk. With floured hands, form the dough into 8 cakes. Place on a nonstick cookie sheet and bake or 18-20 minutes, or until golden. Cool on a rack.
