I'm not sure I will ever want a muffin again...when I can have SCONES. I love them. These were super moist, and the right amount of sweetness. After reading a bit about scones it seems that the difference between them and biscuits is the fat content of the liquid. This recipe calls for oat cream. I found it at Sobeys in the organic section. If I couldn't find it, I would probably try using either soy or oat milk but this would undoubtedly change the texture and decadence of the scones to some degree.
I chose strawberries and chocolate chips this time, but I wouldn't be tied to that combination. The chocolate was probably the more dominate flavour in these. I tried adding 1.5 cups of strawberries but I found that this was too many for the amount of dough and didn't like the way they baked up. So I stuck with the 1 cup. Anyway, I guess the point is use whatever fruit you would like....chocolate or no chocolate....how about some nuts ?! Endless possibilities, but I think the base recipe is perfect.
