Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Scones

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Scones RecipeToday is a continuation of my favorite flavor combination of peanut butter, oats, and chocolate chips. Monday that combination was found in the form of Monster Cookie Bars and today that combination is found in scones. Yes, scones. This was the first time that I have used oats in a scone recipe and I was a little apprehensive of how they would turn out. Still, ever since seeing a variation of these scones over on Brown Eyed Baker, I’ve wanted to give them a try.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Scones RecipeThe oats give the scones a slight chewy texture that is different than most tender, flaky scones. However, I found that the chewiness went well with the peanut butter and chocolate chips. The scone is still tender and far from dry and crumbly. Just the way that I like them. The peanut butter isn’t over powering and adds a subtle flavor to the oatmeal base of the scones.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Scones RecipeSo if you like peanut butter chocolate chip oatmeal cookies, you have to try these peanut butter chocolate chip oatmeal scones. Plus, it’s practically like getting to eat cookies for breakfast!

    I am on a scone kick with my go to being chocolate chip. I was making some nutella oat breakfast cookies and oatmeal chocolate chip cookies the other day and I was thinking that it would be a good idea to try to add some oats to my scones. Now I don’t have to think about it, I just have to make this recipe :) It might be tomorrow or the next day! I can’t wait to taste this yummy goodness. Thanks for the great idea!!! I can’t wait to look through your blog and find lots of great recipes :)
