OAT SCONES

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Heat 1 cup FF milk til scalded (with bubbles around the edge; I use my microwave).

Add 1 1/2 cups regular oatmeal to the milk; stir; and let sit for a few minutes at least.

Spray an oven-proof large pie-pan (I use a 10") with non-stick oil (like PAM).

Add: 1/2 C. FF plain yogurt to the oat mixture, along with one egg, and 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce.

In another container, mix:
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
3 packets of Splenda (or 1 TBS. pourable Splenda, or fructose which is Core)
1 tsp. cinammon
1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1 cup oat bran

When mixed, quickly stir the two together and pour into the pie pan (the dough will start to bubble and rise) and quickly put into the preheated oven.

Bake approximately 30 minutes, or until browned.

After removing from oven, let sit a few minutes and turn out onto a cooling rack. Let sit 5 minutes, then cut into 8ths.

These are substantial and delicious. Eat alone, like "scones" with milk or tea, or, toast/warm them and add warmed Cinammon Apples or warmed Pineapple Rings like "shortcake".

**NOTE TO MY FRIENDS**
Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
