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. πŸ˜€

For the Scones

  • 3 cups flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons cold butter , cut into 1/4-inch pieces
  • 1/2 cup milk (may need to add more)

For the Glaze

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons water


  • Preheat oven to 400 Fahrenheit.
  • Grease a large, heavy baking sheet with cooking spray and set it aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt; mix until well combined.
  • Rub the butter into the dry ingredients with your fingers, or with a pastry cutter; rub until the mixture resembles fine crumbs.
  • Make a well in the center and pour in milk, egg yolk, and vanilla.
  • Add mashed banana.
  • Using a wooden spoon, combine all the ingredients just until the dough comes together.
  • Transfer the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead the dough five times.

  • Let cool for a few minutes and then transfer the scones to a wire rack.

In the meantime, make the glaze.

  • In a small mixing bowl whisk together powdered sugar, vanilla and 2 tablespoons water; whisk until smooth and combined. If the glaze is too thick, add 1 more tablespoon water and whisk until smooth.
  • While still warm, brush each scone with the glaze.
  • Serve.

    Made these today! Every recipe always calls for so much sugar!! these grabbed my eye and i’m so glad they did! so delicious!

  2. Anna

    I made these this morning but swapped in gluten free pain flour, coconut oil, almond milk and a chia ‘egg’ and added some xanthan gum with the dry ingredients. SO SO good. There’s a lot of dietaries in our family so love finding recipes that work for everyone!

    1. Katerina Petrovska

      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.

  3. Joan

    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?

    1. Katerina Petrovska

      Hi Joan! I just shaped them into rounds, about 4 inches in diameter, maybe 5, and about 1-inch tall. Can’t remember exactly how much dough I used (in terms of weight) for each round.

    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 πŸ™‚
    they came out pretty good…. my kids liked them…. soo they passed the test… healthy and yummy πŸ™‚
    thank for the recipe… will definitely make again and again.

  5. crazyirish

    Just made these!!! Amazing! Had a bite to see what they were like and ended up finishing a whole scone,they were that good !!

  6. Jess at The Granola Factory

    Looks great! I have bananas out ripening that I was going to use for Banana bread but banana bread scones sound like a much better use for them! I hope I have time to try them this weekend, thanks for the recipe!

  7. hannah

    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! πŸ™‚

  8. Laura Dembowski

    Gorgeous scones! The bananas must add so much flavor and moisture. Do you think I could add a few nuts to the batter?

  9. Christie - Food Done Light

    I just love this recipe. It has never occurred to me to add bananas to scones. It seems so natural now that I think about it. Fabulous.

  10. Nicole ~ Cooking for Keeps

    Agreed. Definitely wonderful any time of day! I would kill for one of these babies for breakfast, lunch or even dinner!

  11. Megan {Country Cleaver}

    GAH. Are they still singing Let it Go??? NO!!! πŸ˜‰ These scones sound like absolute perfection! Never though of a banana bread scone before. Right on, girl.

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