Honey, Apple and Oat Scones–Gluten-Free and Delicious

I had a friend drop by and I didn’t have any goodies going at that time.  While I was talking with her, I put these together.  Let me tell you my house smelled so good!  These were simple to put together, using only one apple cored, peeled and chopped.  She is used to my baking a lot.  She didn’t even expect them to be for us to share!

I love a recipe that comes together this quickly and easily.  Be sure to use as much of the honey, butter and cinnamon spread as you can once they come out of the oven.  It adds that heavenly touch!  You don’t have to wait for company–these are good to have anytime!  Enjoy!

  • 1 large baking apple (cored and coarsely chopped)
Honey spread
