Method

  • Step 1

    If using the Ninja Foodi Power Pitcher, install the stacked blade in the 72-ounce Power Pitcher. If using a food processor, fit it with a cutting blade. Place the oats, flours, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in the pitcher or food processorFor the Power Pitcher, use Manual Speed 1, select START/STOP, and blend until the oats are well chopped. For a food processor, pulse until the oats are well chopped.

  • Step 2

    For the Power Pitcher, swap out the stacked blade for the dough blade, add the butter, and install the lid. Use Manual Speed 1, select START/STOP, and blend until the butter is in pea-sized pieces. For a food processor, add the butter, install the lid, and pulse until the butter is in pea-sized pieces.

  • Step 3

    Add the yogurt and maple syrup and install the lid. For the Power Pitcher, use Manual Speed 1, select START/STOP, and blend until the mixture just comes together, 10 to 15 seconds. For a food processor, pulse until the mixture comes together.

  • Step 4

    Remove dough from pitcher or food processor to a lightly floured surface and gently knead a few times until the mixture comes together. Divide the dough in half and pat each half into a 1-inchthick round. Sprinkle the pecans on top, pressing them into the dough. Wrap both rounds in plastic wrap and set aside in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. 

  • Step 5

    If using the Ninja Foodi Smart XL Grill, remove the crisper basket and grill grate and close the hood. Select BAKE, set the temperature to 300°F, and set the time to 14 minutes. Select START/STOP to begin preheating. If using a conventional oven, preheat the oven to 375°F.

  • Step 6

    Meanwhile, cut each of the dough rounds into 6 wedges.

  • Step 7

    When the grill or oven is preheated, arrange half of scones evenly in the cooking pot or arrange all of scones on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Cook until lightly browned at the edges12 to 14 minutes in the grill or 22 to 25 minutes in the oven. 

  • Step 8

    Repeat with remaining scones.

  • Step 9

    Once the scones are thoroughly cool, make the icing: In a medium bowl, combine the sugar, syrup, milk, and extract, if using. Add more sugar or milk, if needed, to make a thick but drizzly icing. 

  • Step 10

    Drizzle the icing over the scones. Let the icing set before serving.
