Banana Chocolate Chip Scones
Unfortunately, my pictures don’t do these scones justice. My brother, sister-in-law, and neices are in town from Chicago and all the kids are taking turns spending the night with us. Each of them requests to bake something when they come over so this time Amanda and I decided to use up some old bananas! These scones turned out good (with some moderations). Next time I might try adding some Vanilla to add a bit of depth to the flavor.
2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cream of tartar (I used lemon juice since I was out)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups old fashioned rolled oats
1/2 cup butter
1/3 cup milk
1 ripe mashed banana (I used 3)
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl. Mix together thoughroughly. In a separate bowl combine bananas, milk, and butter. Combine well and pour into dry ingredients mixing until completely moistened. Once combined flour a working surface and divide dough into two batches (If dough is too sticky you can add more flour). Roll the dough out to a 7″ diameter about 1-1 1/2″ thick. Cut into 6 triangular slices. Bake for 10 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
