Banana Nut Scones

I made these up this morning when we were looking for a different flavour of scone for breakfast - and well, the very ripe bananas were calling me! I went easy on the sugar in the scones, and I sprinkled the top with Turbinado Sugar and oats to mimic a cruchy topping. These are not your typical buttery scones, but hearty, healthy, and hold you till lunch scones! If you don't have cinnamon chips, add a tbsp brown sugar, or you might wish to add raisins or chocolate chips, if you like your banana bread that way. This is my basic scone formula - I just change up the fruit and nuts to keep it interesting!

  1. Heat oven to 400.
  2. Mix dry ingredients together (oatmeal, flours, baking powder, cinnamon). Stir oil into dry ingredients well. Add cinnamon chips and walnuts and stir. In a clear measuring cup, add mashed banana, milk to 3/4 cup (banana plus milk should equal 3/4 cup), and vanilla. Combine wet and dry ingredients; stir until the dry ingredients are damp.
  3. Drop dough onto parchment paper lined or greased baking sheet, and form into a 5" diameter circle. Cut into four triangles - it's ok to leave them in a circle. Sprinkle with oats and sugar.
  4. Bake at 400 for 20 minutes, until lightly browned.
