Blueberry Oatmeal Scones Recipe

Blueberry season has just begun; get ready for some beautiful Summer blueberry recipes. 

Yesterday we headed up the coast to Restoration Oaks Ranch & Blueberry Farm

 We grabbed a couple of pails  and started picking, searching for the plumpest, bluest berries. 

With buckets and bellies full with berries we headed home. 

And made these luscious and healthy oat scones studded with juicy blueberries. 

Sunday mornings for us often mean scones from our local bakery. They are delicious, but I can tell they are filled with fat and sugar and not much else. This morning we made our own healthier scones and found they were even tastier! These are crisp on the outside, tender and buttery on the inside, and filled with juicy berries. The oats lend nutritional value and a hearty texture. We will be making these all Summer long. They are quicker and easier than muffins or pancakes too! 

Healthy Blueberry Oat Scones 

makes 6-8 scones 

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/4 cup old-fashioned oatmeal
1/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teasoon lemon zest
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
1/3 cup milk
1 egg, beaten to blend
1 cup fresh blueberries 

Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Combine first 6 ingredients in large bowl. Mix together butter, milk and egg in another bowl. Add to dry ingredients and stir until just moistened. Mix in blueberries. Scoop 1/2 cup balls of dough and place on cookie sheet a few inches apart.  Bake until light brown, about 15 minutes. Cool slightly on rack.

  1. These look delcicious and even more fun that you were able to pick them on your own :)

  2. Sonds like the perfect day to me, lovely scones.

  3. Oh my word.. these scones look wholesome... I could have these with zero quilt!!! You are sooo lucky to live near anything berry related.. p.s. I've been on the hunt for old pieces of wood, but I was curious did you use a stain?

  4. I can't wait to try the scone recipe - thanks! I love scones, but the good ones are usually just butterballs.

  5. i've always wanted to stop by that blueberry farm, but it's always been closed. i spoke to victoria and she said y'all were both breaking in the newly opened season--and that you'd make some crazy delicious recipe. true that. you also shot some beautiful photos. it's a wonderful reminder about the simple pleasures in life. i hope to follow suit soon! xoh

  6. I love how your recipes tell a story. Glorious pics...the image of your daughter holding the bucket of blueberries is amazing.

  7. Yes! Summer has arrived. Bring on the blueberries. We love to go up picking. My go-to blueberry recipe is a Blueberry Buckle. Not healthy at all, but oh so delicious...

  20. Want to know a secret? I've never had a blueberry muffin. I have a day off tomorrow, so this recipe might be changing that :D

  21. This is so crazy! I was just wanting to make scones but kept thinking about how they can be a bit "loaded" in terms of calories and fat and I can't seem to just eat one at a time. LOL! So, this is perfect timing and I can't wait to try these. Thanks for sharing them at the Block Party!
    P.S. Your pics are are your sweet girls! :-)

  22. just LOVE your pics, all adorable!

  23. Hi!I was searching for a healthy alternative to blueberry scones and came across your recipe. I had everything but parchment paper (I used a stone baking sheet).They were so good! How am I going to just eat one??? Thanks for the great recipe!

  24. I'm getting so hungry reading your post! Love oat scones (been using a Martha recipe) and your fresh blueberries are a perfect add.

  25. This was the breakfast of one of the most special days of my life: Graduation. Because of a disease something normal as graduating from high-school was a long and difficult road for me, and your wonderful recipe was a delicious part of the celebration. Thank you!

  30. I blended the oats until very fine, rubbed in the butter cold, replaced white with brown sugar, added 60g sour cream to the milk and added 1/4 cup raisins. My toddler loved it! Thks for this healthy recipe!

    I made these exactly as the recipe says and they were really good! Just like the ones I get from the bakery only healthier. I will make them again and replace the butter with a prune puree as I usually do. Thank you!

    I made these for my playgroup this morning. Very delicious! I shared some with my daughter (age 8 months) and she couldn't get enough :) Thanks for a great recipe!

  33. These were so good. I find scones to be a little dry and tossed in 1/4 of applesauce, pecans and some cinnamon. Delicious. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
