Maple Cinnamon Sweet Potato Scones With Pecans

This is a redo of a savory recipe I've made from I'm Pat, for a Gluten Free Kumara Damper, which inspired me to modify this recipe into a sweet(ish) scone, made with cinnamon, pecans, a bit of brown sugar and maple syrup, and for those who don't have self-rising flour handy, include the measurements for the baking powder and salt. I've also changed the flour, using part oat flour, and part all purpose or whole wheat, your choice - although use your imagination, or what's on hand. The ones in the photo were made with all-purpose and oat flour. You can make oat flour by whirring some oats in your grinder until they resemble flour. I love oat flour!!These are a real favourite at home! Merlin and Arwen (my parrots), negotiate for as much of the sweet potato as they can - generally the rule is that they can have all but 1/2 cup of it. When the scones come out of the oven is another story!! I hope you like my version of them - feel free to change it up as you'd like to.
