There are those days when you need the bottomless cup of coffee to get through the day. Then there are those days where you have the bottomless cup of coffee, while snacking on a delicious scone, gathered around your kitchen table chatting and catching up with a few good friends. The later of those two scenarios is the recipe for a perfect Saturday morning (in my opinion). And these scones are the perfect Saturday morning treat (also in my opinion).
What I love about these scones is the subtle sweetness and the bright burst of flavor that the fresh blueberries provide. Oatmeal gives these scones a nice hearty texture without weighing them down and a little sprinkle of cinnamon sugar add a nice sugary crunch to the top! I lightened up these delicious little treats by subbing in Greek yogurt for half the butter, trust me you will not taste the difference! Make these for your next brunch or make a batch for yourself! Enjoy!
