Oatmeal Scones with Cherries, Walnuts and Chocolate Chunks

The oats in these scones gives them extra fiber as well as a pleasantly flaky, crumbly texture. For best results, look for old-fashioned rolled oats, which have a sturdy texture and more fiber than more processed instant oats. Bake a batch of these hearty scones on the weekend and keep them in the freezer to rewarm on busy weekday mornings.

YUM! Easy craving satisfaction
March 4, 2013
These took me about 1/2 an hour to make. I didn't have any issues with them tasting like baking soda or baking powder and used the proportions in the recipe, with the following exceptions:
I used whole milk instead of buttermilk.
I cut the walnuts, chocolate, and cherries in half (low on supplies in my pantry).
I used 2 squares of 100% dark chocolate and 2 squares of 60% chopped for the chocolate.
One thing to mention is that they do get gigantic! Make sure you leave a couple inches on all sides for them to grow. They are delicious. For those of you counting, my version came out to be 319 calories a scone (recipe made 8).
Pros: Yield, Quick, Good Value, Easy, Kid-Friendly, Appearance, Adaptable, Will Make Again

Healthy and Delicious
August 4, 2011
While I would agree with the reviewer that there is a slight taste from the amount of baking powder & soda, overall these scones are great. I made them last night, and when I shared them with coworkers today, one commented that they tasted better than scones she gets every day from a national specialty bread maker chain. I chop the dried cherries (I use a dried cherry mixture which includes sweet and tart), and this time I used Ghiradehli mini semi-sweet chips. I also used 1 c. all-purpose flour and 1 c. white whole wheat flour. Before baking, I brushed the tops with some additional buttermilk and sprinkled some raw suger on them. I own this cookbook, and this is the second time I've made these.

baking soda not needed
April 15, 2011
These turned out terribly. I followed the recipe exactly and they have the bad aftertaste of too much baking soda. After reviewing the ingredients, I realize that 2 teaspoons baking soda is not needed and that all the other scone recipes I use only have baking powder. I imagine if you omitted the soda, these would be good. Whoever posted this recipe obviously did not make them as instructed.
