Recipe for The Best Raspberry Oatmeal Scones

These are my favorite breakfast scones. Sometimes I’ll say cherry-almond scones are my favorite, sometimes orange currant, but I always come back to these raspberry oatmeal scones because they are healthy, fresh tasting, and are so yummy!

I’ve been making them for years.

I’m such a scone lover and baker. I’ve been known to make scones almost every day at times.

But I recently realized that I hadn’t made any scones in the new house. Not one. And I’ve lived here for over seven months now!

So it was perfect to start with raspberry oatmeal scones, my fave go-to recipe and one that the kids like (no nuts involved), and to share the recipe with you. Because it’s so good.

Enjoy fresh with coffee or the beverage of your choice.

P.S. If you have some left over the next day, just know that not so fresh scones can be improved by toasting them and adding butter.
