Lavender Oat Scones

These lavender oat scones are cozy, buttery and the lavender adds an unexpected, but delightful earthy flavor. Lavender is actually a member of the mint family, if you didn’t know (I didn’t). It’s important to buy culinary lavender for this recipe. Don’t just grab some out of your garden 😉

I love serving these for breakfast or an afternoon tea.
