banana-oat-scones recipe

 This recipe is adapated from a Bon Appetite special publication. In
 general, I find Bon Appetite to have great variations on standard
 recipies (like pumpkin bread made with orange marmalade!) So, for
 anyone who feels confident in his/her ability to adapt SAD recipes to
 VLF, I suggest Bon Appetite as a good source for inspiration.
 (by the way, you need a food processor, otherwise you can experiment
 with perhaps oatbran or just plain flour instead of the processed 
 oatmeal, you'll see)
 FF Banana Oat Scones
 2 cups flour (I used white, sue me)
 2 cups oatmeal
 1/4 cup sugar
 1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
 1/4 teaspoon salt
 2 very ripe bananas
 1 cup (about) non-fat milk
 Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
 Process one cup of oatmeal in food processor until it resembles flour
 (maybe just substitute flour or use oatbran if you don't have a
 Add flour, salt, baking powder, and sugar and process to mix.
 Process in bananas. (or just add the bananas mashed and mix in real good).
 Put in mixing bowl and by hand, mix in rest of oatmeal (one cup) and
 milk (slowly) until a soft dough is formed (may need more or less
 Kneed lightly on a floured surface. (Note: the dough should be soft,
 but not sticking to your hands like crazy. You've added too much milk,
 kneed in more flour until you can handle the stuff reasonably.)
 Divide dough into three equal portions. Form each into a ball and
 flatten to about 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick. Cut twice crosswise into four
 wedges and put on a cookie sheet. (You can make them bigger, or cook
 without cutting into wedges, but you may have to adjust the cooking
 time. Also use a coating of flour on the bottom of each scone in order
 to keep them from sticking to the pan)
 Cook in preheated 375 degree oven for 28 minutes.
 1) Add raisins, small pieces of dates, dried cherries or cranberries
 (probably about 1/4 to 1/2 cup).
 2) Add 1 teaspoon cinnamon.
 3) Omit banana, use apple sauce (about 2 bananas worth :-) ) and
 cinnamon instead (will probably need less milk).
 4) Omit banana, use 1/4 to 1/3 cup processed/canned pumpkin, 1/4 teaspoon
 ground nutmeg, 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves, 1 teaspoon cinnamon and an
 additional 1/4 cup sugar.
 5) You can use buttermilk or yogurt instead of milk by decreasing the
 amount of baking powder to 1 teaspoon and adding 1 teaspoon of baking
 soda. May need to add some water, if using yogurt.
