Dessert: Peanut Butter & Banana Scones

18 Apr

Wow, what an easy snack to make!

These scones were actually inspired by my favorite food blog:

I tweaked it a little to make it gluten free and packed with protein, because honestly I’ve been craving scones at work almost every day lately…

You can make these scones with any flavors you want, just make sure you add sweetness (so that it doesn’t just become great bread) and flour as you go so that the bread consistency doesn’t change. They should be able to NOT stick to floured wax paper when you are ready to form circles. Too sticky might lead to odd cookes ;)
