Maple Agave Oatmeal Scones
4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup quick-cooking oats, plus additional for sprinkling
1 1/2 Tbsp. baking powder
2 tsp. salt
1 pound (4 sticks) cold, unsalted butter, diced
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1 cup Wholesome Sweeteners Organic Maple Agave Syrup, divided
4 extra-large cage free eggs, lightly beaten
1 egg beaten with 1 Tbsp. milk or water, for egg wash
1 1/4 cups Wholesome Sweeteners Fair Trade Organic Powdered Sugar
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 325°F.
Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, combine the flour, oats, baking powder, and salt. Blend the cold butter in at the lowest speed and mix until the butter is in pea-sized pieces.
Combine the yogurt, 1/2 cup maple agave, and eggs and add quickly to the flour-and-butter mixture. Mix until just blended. The dough may be sticky.
Dump the dough out onto a well-floured surface. Flour your hands and fold the dough a couple of times to be sure it is combined. Roll or press the dough to 3/4 to 1-inch thick. You should see lumps of butter in the dough. Cut into 3-inch rounds or squares and place on baking sheet. Brush the tops with egg wash. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until the tops are crisp and the insides done. (If the scones brown too quickly, simply cover with foil.)
Combine the powdered sugar, 1/2 cup maple agave, and vanilla to make the glaze. When the scones are done, cool for 5 minutes and drizzle each scone with 1 Tbsp. of glaze. Sprinkle a few uncooked oats on the top for garnish. The warmer the scones are when you glaze them, the thinner the glaze will be.
