Today I thought I would share this beautiful recipe that everyone can eat. I found a few different recipes online for banana scones and thought I would try it out for something a bit different!
The thing I love most about these scones is that I feel healthy eating them, as theres nothing really bad in them; apart from the glaze on the top! You could make this recipe without bananas and substitute in a different fruit of your choice easily too.
You will need…
- 1 Cup of mixed nuts (I used Brazil, Almonds, and Walnuts)
- 2 Cups of any gluten free flour of your choice
- 1 Tablespoon of Baking Powder
- 3/4 Cup of Banana (Mashed and very ripe)
- 1/4 Cup of milk (your choice which kind)
- 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla paste or extract
- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon of ground ginger
- 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg
- 2 Tablespoons of Maple syrup (or agave nectar)
- 1/3 cup of Coconut Oil (or 5 Tablespoons of a DF butter)
- Pinch of Salt
- 1 cup Icing Sugar
- 1 teaspoon of Vanilla paste/extract
- 2 teaspoons melted coconut oil (or DF butter)
- 2 Tablespoons of Maple Syrup (Agave nectar)
- Preheat your oven to 220c (425F) and line, and set aside, a baking tray
- Place the nuts of your choice in a blender and blend until the nuts are fine and their are no big chunks!
- In a big mixing bowl, sieve your flour, baking powder, cinnamon, ground ginger, nutmeg, salt, and the mixed nuts you just blended, and combine.
- Now add either your coconut oil, or DF butter to the dry mix, and mix until a crumb like consistency is formed (easier to use your hands in this step!)
- Mash your bananas until you have 3/4 of a cup worth
- Add your chosen milk to your banana mixture until you have 1 cup of liquid all together. Add this to the dry ingredients.
- Now add your maple syrup and vanilla paste/extract, and mix until everything is well combined and a little sticky.
- Pour your mixture onto a flat surface and mould into a circle shape that is 1 inch high, and now cut into 8 equal pieces.
- Place each piece on the prepared baking tray leaving at least an inch gap between each scone, and place in your heated oven for 14-18 minutes, or until lightly golden on top!
- Now your scones are made, it’s time to start on the icing! (But, wait for the scones to cool down slightly before icing them!)
- Place your icing sugar, melted coconut oil/ butter, maple syrup, and vanilla in a mixing bowl and mix until all the ingredients are combined and smooth.
- Drizzle over each of the scones.
- Enjoy! 🙂
Hope you enjoyed this!
