slightly spiced apple & oat drop scones

Autumn is lovely in so many ways; one of my fave things is all the apples ripening ready to fall from their trees and become slightly spiced apple & oat drop scones ;)!

These are a great after-school energising scrummy snack to be enjoyed before heading out to clubs. They are also delicious straight from the pan and are really quick and easy to make, the spices add an extra dimension of warmth on grey cool days like today. They are also lovely on lazy weekends, your child can help make them they are that easy.

Let me know how you make them your own.

apple & oat scotch pancakes

These little apple & oat scotch pancakes were created in response to a request from a friend. They have become a firm family fave, perfect for a lazy weekend brunch, or a cosy winter tea. The recipe is really simple, just make sure you don't bung too much batter into the pan, as the larger the apple & oat scotch pancakes; the harder they are to flip!


  • 1 C stewed apple or puree
  • 1 C oats (we use nairns)
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp ground cloves
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 2 Tbs golden granulated sugar
  • 1¼ C gluten-free self raising flour (we use doves)
  • 1 C m!lk alternative of your choice (we use koko)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • ½ C sunflower oil
  • grind of salt


  1. In a large mixing bowl add all the ingredients in the order above. Mix it all up with a spoon (it will look lumpy). 

    edges show they're ready to flip

  2. Now get your griddle, or stone pan on a medium-low heat, once it's hot pop some sunflower spread into the pan to melt.

  3. When it's melted drop dollops of your batter into the pan (not too big or they are tricky to flip). When the batter starts to change colour on the sides & top flip the drop scone over. The second side cooks in about half the time of the first. 

  4. Get off the heat and onto a cooling rack or onto a lucky bods waiting plate!


We eat these as they come out of the pan, but you can prepare them all first if you prefer.

There is a lot of mix so either you can make them all - they taste great cold with a little spread on for afternoon tea! However the mix is also great the following day if you have keep it in fridge.
