Savory Oat Scones–Taste like Everything Bagels!

Do you remember the flavors that we used to enjoy when we had “everything” bagels?  You know, before going gluten-free?  Well here is an amazing recipe for a light as air scone with the seasoning that is used on “everything” bagels.  It really hits the spot if you miss that old favorite.  And, to my surprise, it really isn’t even hard–just flavorful.  Scones are usually quick to put together since you are encouraged not to beat or knead them too much since that makes them tough.  I find breakfast or snack things that I can make quickly and that taste great help me to be satisfied with my decision to live gluten-free.  I hope this recipe give that satisfaction to you too!

Now that I have the list of ingredients that goes into “everything” topping, I’m going to keep some mixed together in my spices to see when and where I can add this flavor to other baked items.  I’ll share my new recipes with you in the future.  In the meantime–start with this quick and easy recipe.
