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.

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
