Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1½ tsp. baking powder
  • ⅓ cup unsalted chilled butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1 small apple, peeled, cored, and finely chopped
  • 1 cup quick-cooking rolled oats
  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 Tbsp. apple juice
  • 2 Tbsp. honey

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Lightly grease a baking sheet.
  • In a bowl, stir together the flour and baking powder. Add the butter and, using a pastry cutter, cut in until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Add the apple and rolled oats and mix thoroughly. Mix in the egg whites, apple juice, and honey; mix well. The dough will be sticky.
  • Form the dough into a 7" round directly on the baking sheet. Using a sharp knife, cut the dough into 12 wedges.
  • Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until golden. Cool on a rack.
