  • 1 ½ cups (180g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 ¼ cups (111g) old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 ½ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ cup (113g) unsalted butter, cold & cubed

  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Put this bowl in fridge.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together maple syrup, heavy cream, and egg.
  5. Pull flour mixture bowl out of fridge and make a well in the centre. Pour in the liquid mixture and stir just until moistened. Gently fold in chopped almonds and raisins.

  7. Place baking sheet in fridge for 30 minutes.
  8. While scones are chillin’, heat oven to 350°F.
  9. Bake for 25 minutes or until scones are lightly browned on top and golden around the edges.
  10. Enjoy scones warm or transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
