  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the oat flour, whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Cut in shortening and 1/2 cup of butter until the lumps are smaller than peas. Stir in the lemon zest and poppy seeds. Make a well in the center and pour in the buttermilk. Stir just until the dry ingredients are moistened.
  3. Divide the dough into 2 pieces. Pat each one into a 1 inch thick circle. Cut circles into 6 wedges like a pie. Place pieces onto a baking sheet, and brush the tops with melted butter.
  4. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, until lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack so they do not get too crumbly.


  • Note
  • To make your own oat flour, process regular or quick cooking oats to a fine powder in a blender or food processor.

These were good....even though I changed it just a wee bit. I didn't have oat flour, but had 1 1/2 cups Kamut flour to use up and added 1/2 cup of spelt flour to make 2 cups. I also used soya an...

These are so good! Easy to make and just about perfect and what a great basic recipe to play with for different flavors. I added extract to this, only used 3 teaspoons of baking powder, used b...
