Crazy About Oats

First and foremost, I would like to apologize for my absense this past week and a half; I had a lot of schoolwork to finish up before my March Break started, and, in addition to that, I had started the Lenten fast which made baking quite difficult. Now that I am in the oil-free vegan regime, though, the smells of the treats I'm about to share with you don't lure me into taking a bite.  Instead, I hand over the job of taste-tasting, and eating, to my parents, who don't seem to mind the multitude of oats in our baked goods this week.

Over the course of this past week, I have been eating a lot of oatmeal.  The version you see in photo was topped off with dried figs, pecans, and blackberries.  (Mmm). Both of the recipes for the scones and the bars are not original, but there are several modifications that I had made to both.
