  • Yield: 8 servings
  • Cook time:25 Minutes
  • Prep time:20 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups whole-wheat pastry flour
  • 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup dried cherries
  • 3 ounces crystallized ginger, coarsely chopped (about 1/2 cup)
  • 1/4 cup low-fat buttermilk
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour (optional)

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 350°. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, and set aside.

2. Combine flour, oats, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a food processor. Process 10 seconds or until oats are finely chopped. Add margarine; process until mixture resembles coarse meal.

3. Transfer mixture to a large mixing bowl; stir in cherries and ginger.

4. Combine buttermilk and egg whites in a small bowl; stir with a whisk. Add buttermilk mixture to dry mixture; stir just until a sticky dough forms.

5. Transfer dough to parchment paper-lined baking sheet, and pat into a 9-inch circle (about 1 inch thick). Sprinkle with all-purpose flour, if necessary, to keep dough from sticking to hands.

6. Divide dough by hand or with a knife into 8 equal wedges. Separate wedges slightly, and bake at 350° for 25 minutes or until browned and a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.
