  • In a medium bowl, combine ground flaxseeds, flour, the 1/2 cup oats, the sugar, baking powder, and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture; set aside.

  • In a bowl, slightly beat egg white; stir in yogurt. Gently fold in berries. Add berry mixture all at once to flour mixture. With a fork, stir just until moistened.

  • Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface. Knead by folding and gently pressing dough for 10 to 12 strokes or until dough is nearly smooth. Pat or lightly roll dough into a 10-inch circle. Cut into 12 wedges.

  • Place wedges 1 inch apart on prepared baking sheet. Brush tops of scones with milk. If desired, sprinkle lightly with additional oats and/or flaxseeds. Bake for 16 to 18 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.
