Oatmeal Blueberry Scones with Lemon Glaze

by Suzanne on July 5, 2011

It’s blueberry season :) where I live and blueberries are seriously one of my favorite fruits.  I didn’t fall in love with them until I went to a blueberry farm and picked the fresh ones, they taste nothing like the tiny chips of ones found in some commercial muffins and they are not tiny either.  If blueberries are picked before they are ripe they are sour,unlike other fruit that will ripen after being picked..no such luck with the blueberry.  Most all of my life I had eaten the sour ones so naturally I wasn’t drawn to them, then the magic happen, we decided to go picking blueberries for fun.  We probably ate as many as we picked that first time because they were so incredibly good.  Now, I enjoy blueberries and eat them year round, so I’m always looking for ways to use them in my cooking.  I love this recipe for scones because it adds oats which makes me feel like they might be a little healthy.  I adapted this recipe from a recipe book found in my parents new kitchen aid food processor. If you are interested in seeing more detailed directions with photos then check my other recipe for blueberry scones both recipes are delish!
