Just like the at the coffee shop, these Maple Oat Scones with White Chocolate Drizzle are the perfect companion to a hot cup of coffee.
I had about an 18 month stint working as a Barista and Starbucks inside of Vons. One of my favorite treats that we sold was Maple Oat Scones. At the time, the stores inside of grocery stores were getting their pastries from a different bakery. I swear they were better.
Anyway, after quitting working there, I find that I only really visit the coffee shop when I am not at home and in desperate need of caffeine, and during Pumpkin Spice Latte season. You will never find me ordering a pastry there anymore! At those prices I can make an entire batch!
The other day I had a craving for the buttery scones. Since the are so easy to make, I quickly whipped up a batch. They were the perfect companion to my cup of Nespresso and an impressive snack with my mom friends. This is pretty much the only way I try to impress my friends.
The next time you want a delicious fall snack, need a quick gift, or just want to bake, make a batch of these Maple Oat Scones! Check out my other Fall favorites below the recipe! Enjoy!
