Banana and Nut Vegan/GF/RSF Scones!

Hello Everybody,

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…

 

Scones mixture;

  • 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

Glaze;

  • 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)

Let’s go…

  1. Preheat your oven to 220c (425F) and line, and set aside, a baking tray
  2. Place the nuts of your choice in a blender and blend until the nuts are fine and their are no big chunks!
  3. In a big mixing bowl, sieve your flour, baking powder, cinnamon, ground ginger, nutmeg, salt, and the mixed nuts you just blended, and combine.
  4. 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!)
  5. Mash your bananas until you have 3/4 of a cup worth
  6. Add your chosen milk to your banana mixture until you have 1 cup of liquid all together. Add this to the dry ingredients.
  7. Now add your maple syrup and vanilla paste/extract, and mix until everything is well combined and a little sticky.
  8. 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.
  9. 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!
  10. 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!)
  11. 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.
  12. Drizzle over each of the scones.
  13. Enjoy! 🙂
