Buttermilk Oatmeal Raisin Scones

1/4 c sugar
1 1/2 c whole wheat flour
1 1/2 c rolled oats
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3 tbsp soft margarine
1 c raisins
1 1/4 c buttermilk

Preheat to 425. Set aside 1 1/2 tsp sugar for the topping.

Combine whole wheat, oats, remaining sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Work in the margarine until the mixture is crumbly. Stir in raisins. Add buttermilk and stir. Knead dough about 10 times on a lightly floured surface.

Divide dough into 3 equal pieces. Pat each piece into a 3/4 inch thick circle. Place on a baking sheet and cut into fourths with a knife. Sprinkle with reserved sugar.

Bake at 425 about 15 to 20 minutes, or until lightly browned. Serve hot.
