Cool people put bananas in their scones! But, first. Should I tell you about my Frozen-filled weekend? Yes. Yes, I should.

Ana’s Birthday Party was yesterday and, if you ask me, it looked more like we were celebrating Elsa and less like we were celebrating Ana’s 5th. We had the movie Frozen playing on our 1000-inch TV (exaggerating!), Frozen soundtrack BLASTING from her bedroom, and 8 little girls singing Let It Go as loud as they possibly could. 

Do you know how loud a bunch of 5 and 6 year-old girls ARE? HOLY ears-ringing!!

Another thing? Instead of cleaning up the mess, I watched Sweet Home Alabama after everyone left. I had to unwind. That bottle of Chardonnay was of huge help!

You know, I also have to let you in on a little secret.

I don’t measure flour. I don’t measure sugar, either. I just eyeball every.thing.

This is me talking to myself, out loud, which is pretty normal:
“Meh. That looks like 1/2-cup… THAT is definitely about a teaspoon… Hm… This is about 1/4-ish cup… give or take…”

You know what happens when you eyeball? When BAKING?!?

Yah. Sometimes (alotta times) it

It’s cool, though… I just get to eat 3-times more banana bread scones than you.

Have to admit, I’m SO glad that my dad also could care less about perfect texture thus he always helps me out with eating up my imperfect sweets. It happens very, veeery often… Not to worry – I always figure it out by whipping-out those measuring cups and spoons.

The thing about scones is that, one, they’re good for breakfast, and two, they’re good for a snack, and three, they’re good for any time of the day.

Since staring at these scones should totally convince you to make them, I will not make a big closing argument about why you SHOULD make them! AND, while I’m still telling you what to do, make sure to measure out 1-CUP mashed banana. 😀

    1. Hi!
      That’s in Fahrenheit. I’m in the States so out of habit I just say 400, but I’ll update that so it says 400F, which would be 200 celsius. Thank you for pointing that out to me! Have a great weekend ahead.

    In your recipe you cut into wedges, but the picture shows them in rounds. Did you drop by scoops and If so, how much did you drop?

    made these for breakfast today …. a little healthier though….
    1 cup white flour,
    1 cup whole wheat flour and
    1 cup mixture of seed meals (pumpkin seed meal, chia seed meal, sesame seed meal, sunflower seed meal, flax meal
    and quinoa flour)
    and threw in some chocolate chips to keep the kids interested 🙂
    they came out pretty good…. my kids liked them…. soo they passed the test… healthy and yummy 🙂
    thank for the recipe… will definitely make again and again.

    Oh. My. Goodness! I have just made these to use up some frozen bananas. They are seriously delicious and had big thumbs up from my taste-tester! So glad I stumbled upon it. Thank you! 🙂

  4. Baking is one place where I measure exactly. I commend you on your casual attitude. Great recipe.

    Eight little girls singing loudly … sounds like you need a big hug and a drink or three.
