These are very good! I have included two different ways of presenting the scones. One is easy and the other is just plain decadent.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 12 cups flour
  • 12 cup sugar
  • 2 12 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 14 teaspoon salt
  • 12 tablespoons cold butter or 12 tablespoons margarine
  • 23 cup very ripe banana, mashed
  • 1 cup banana yogurt or 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 34 cup miniature chocolate chip
  • Chocolate Cream Cheese

  • 3 semi-sweet chocolate baking squares, chopped into small pieces
  • 14 cup whipping cream
  • 1 (8 ounce) package whipped cream cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F
  2. Combine the first 5 ingredients in bowl.
  3. Cut in the butter until the size of peas.
  4. Add the yogurt or sour cream, egg yolk, bananas and chocolate chips.
  5. Combine into ball. Flour a surface and knead gently until it comes together.
  6. Grease a cookie sheet. Place ball in centre of sheet and pat down to form a disk, about 2 1/2 inches high (approx).
  7. Cut dough in half and then in half the other way (now you have 4 pieces. Now repeat again. So now you have 8 triangles.
  8. Pull trianges out from each other so they are not touching too much. This will give you lots of nice crust.
  9. Bake for about 20 minutes. Time depends on how thick you made the scones. To test for doneness -- check the centres where they touch. If firm, they should be done.
  10. For Chocolate Glaze:.
  11. When scones are done, put some mini choco chips on top of the scones. Leave for 5 minutes, then spread over top.
  12. OR.
  13. For Chocolate Cream Cheese:.
  14. Heat chocolate and cream until chocolate is melted.
  15. Cool to room temperature.
  16. Stir into whipped cream cheese.
  17. Serve along side scones. YUMMY!

Very nice recipe! I made them with nonfat plain greek yogurt instead of banana yogurt or sour cream. I also increased the baking powder to a full tablespoon. They rose large, so I'd probably make 16 out of this recipe the next time. They were moist with a tender crumb. Completely repeatable. I did not make the cream cheese addition, just the scones.

I used unbleached White Whole Wheat Flour and they were phenomenal, even without the extra toppings. I used only 2 bananas (and sour cream) and it was the perfect amount of banana flavor--not overwhelming in banana-ness. :)

These were delicious! I did not have yogurt or sour cream so I had to use milk thickened with vinegar. It turned out to be a sticky dough (my fault) so I made drop scones. I sprinkled brown sugar on them before baking. They were a hit! Thank you for another great way to use bananas!
