Delicious oat-apple scones with a hint of cinnamon and maple. A true breakfast treat.
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Lightly grease 2 baking sheets.
Mix flour, oats, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon together in a large bowl. Cut in cold butter with a pastry blender. Add shredded apples and mix to distribute. Stir in half-and-half, egg, and maple syrup. Mix until dough holds its shape but is still fairly sticky; do not overmix.
Turn dough out onto a floured board and pat into a circle about 1/2-inch thick. Mix sugar and cinnamon together in a small bowl. Brush the top of the dough with melted butter and sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar. Cut into 12 wedges and place on baking sheets at least 1 inch apart.
Bake in the preheated oven until golden, 13 to 15 minutes.
