Strawberry Oat Scones

Disclaimer: This Strawberry Oat Scones recipe was created as part of a project for The Women Bloggers and Kendal King Group on behalf of their client.

These Strawberry Oat Scones are definitely worth waking up for. They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I say, if it’s sweet and hearty then I’m all for it. Since it strawberry season, I figured why not share this Strawberry Oat Scones recipe using a secret ingredient – Nestle Gerber Cereal.

Strawberry Oat Scones ingredients

Yes, traditional. As a result, scones get a nice twist with the addition of baby cereal. Although the Nestle Gerber Cereal comes in four flavors – Oatmeal Cereal Single-Grain, Multigrain Cereal, Oatmeal & Banana Cereal, and Lil’ Bits Oatmeal Banana Strawberry. The one I used for this recipe is the Gerber Oatmeal Cereal Single-Grain, and it’s available at Walmart. You can probably use any of their cereal, and you will still end up with something yummy.

First of all, if you’ve any leftover baby cereal be sure to give this recipe a try because when you try it, you will want to make it again and again. Hiding inside the scones are a healthy dose of strawberry, while I understand that not everyone likes strawberry. You can probably make these with any in-season fruit of your choice. Sometimes, I double the recipe, and they come in handy for busy mornings. Fresh strawberries freeze well, therefore, whenever we go strawberry picking, I freeze them in zippered lock bags, so I can have some on hand as needed.

Strawberry Oatmeal Scones

You can dig in right out of the oven. We either eat it by itself or take a page from the British and pair with a cup of tea. At the last minute,  I drizzled some sugar glaze on top. As a result, we needed up with slightly sweeter scones.
