Banana Nut Scones

After tons of hours spent studying, a pick me up was needed. I found a few recipes online for scones, and I’d made them before, but I wanted something new. Here’s what you’ll need:

2 mashed bananas
1.5 cups white flour
2/3 cup of whole wheat flour
6 packets of Truvia
6 tablespoons of white sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons of butter
1 egg
¼ cup heavy whipping cream
¼ cup almond milk
(or you can just do ½ cup of your favorite milk instead of the two above)
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1/4 cup chopped almonds
1 egg white
½ a packet of stevia or sugar

Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.

Mix up the flour, truvia, sugar, baking powder, and salt.

Add in the butter cut up into small pieces. Use your hands to mix the butter and flour combination.

Now, add in the mashed bananas, egg, heavy cream, milk, and vanilla.

Mix it up well; it’s going to be very sticky.

Spray a cookie sheet with nonstick spray.

Make two loaves with the dough and place on the cookie sheet (pictured below).

Take the chopped almonds and sprinkle on top of the 2 loaves.

Now, using a pizza cutter or butter knife, cut small triangles from the 2 loaves. Mine made between 5 and 6 scones per loaf.

Now, take the egg white and either using a spoon or a brush, brush the tops of the scones with the egg white.

Finally, sprinkle the scones with the sugar/stevia lightly.

Place in the oven for about 15 minutes, until the sides are brown.

Enjoy hot or cold. These turned out yummy! Definitely satisfies a sweet tooth without overwhelming the calorie in take. These will be good leftovers with coffee in the morning. Noms!
