These scones are nice to eat … my youngest daughter definitely love them! In fact, I had to do a re-run just to satisfy her 😀
Thanks to Bittersweetspicy for the recipe 🙂
Banana and Chocolate Chips Scones
1 cup self-raising flour
1 1⁄2 tbsp brown sugar
1⁄4 tsp salt
1⁄4 tsp cinnamon powder
3 tbsp or 45g butter, cold
4 tbsp low-fat milk
1⁄2 tsp vanilla essence
1⁄3 cup banana, diced (about half a medium banana)
1/4 cup semi-sweet mini chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 200°C .
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, salt and cinnamon powder.
Cut butter into a few chunks and rub it into the flour mixture with your fingertips.
Mix milk and vanilla in a small glass.
Pour about 4 tablespoons into the flour mixture and stir until the mixture starts to come together.
Add the banana chunks and chocolate chips.
Continue to stir, adding more milk if necessary, just until dough comes together. Do not over mix.
Pat dough into a disk about 1inch thick.
Cut using a cookie cutter and place each piece on baking sheet.
Brush the top with some milk (optional).
Bake for 17-20 minutes, until light gold.
Cool on wire rack or eat warm.
