The small town Colorado girl who’s obsessed with home and everything that entails! I’m a creative, a decorator, a day dreamer, a huge fan of scones, and I’m passionate about loving where I live and making a home.
Boy do I have a treat for you today! For this month’s Scone of the Month recipe, I’m sharing these amazing gluten free banana nut scones. I really can’t tell you how much we love these! Yum, yum, yum!
If you’re new here, let me give you a little back story on Scone of the Month. Todd and I both love scones. They’re basically one of our very favorite things, and we like to celebrate the weekends by baking a fresh batch of gluten free scones. Because we make them every weekend, I like to get creative with the different scone flavors we try.
My favorite mix, by far, is this one. I’ve tried so many recipes claiming to be the very best, but none of them have ever come close to how incredible this mix is. One day I’d love to be able to figure out my own scone blend, but until then, this scone mix is my absolute go to. We always have a few boxes in our pantry. They’re that good.
For the flavor this month, I gathered inspiration from one of my favorite breads: Banana Nut. Since I was a young girl, I can remember my mom making my grandma’s banana nut bread recipe. It’s not only delicious, but filled with sweet memories I cherish. Needless to say, baking that delicious bread into a tender scone was so much fun. Delicious fun.
I ended up making these a few times to get them just right, tweaking my recipe a little bit each time. Neither Todd nor I minded the taste tasting that came with the job. All versions I made tasted incredible, but the last tweak resulted in a more traditional scone. But just know, that even if you end up adding a bit too much milk, which is what I did, they still taste fantastic, they’re just a little more cake like than biscuit.
And I’ll also admit, I’ve never been huge on banana flavoring. I like to use real banana whenever possible and they make the difference in these scones.
