  1. The yogurt reduces the grams of fat to ½ the regular recipe.

  2. Browning the butter intensifies its flavor, so less is needed. Soft pastry flour requires less shortening than harder, higher gluten all-purpose or bread flour. [You could probably replace the ¼ cup sugar with ⅛ cup Fructose, but I have not tried this.] Preheat oven to 425. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Melt butter in a small saucepan over low heat and cook until it begins to turn light brown., about 2 min. Skim foam and pour into a small bowl. In a large bowl, stir together oats, flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir in the raisins and make a well in the center. In a small bowl, combine the browned butter, egg, yogurt and oil; add to the dry ingredients, stirring until just moistened. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and gently knead several times to form a ball. Pat into an 8" circle and cut into 8 wedges. Place the wedges on the baking sheet and bake about 12 min., or until lightly browned and firm to the touch. Transfer to a rack and let cool slightly. Serve warm.
