Strawberry Banana Scones

So I had a lot of strawberries left over from that Strawberry Chocolate Tart so I decided to make some scones. And I thought I had this brilliant idea to blend some of the strawberries with the milk mixture in the hope that it would make the dough pink. I was mistaken. It did not turn pink. I no longer trust strawberry cakes that are pink…I’m fairly certain that there must be pink food coloring involved. Well, at least I learned some things while making this recipe.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1.5 cups oats
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 4 tbsp frozen butter, grated
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup almond milk
  • 1 banana
  • 2 cups strawberries
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • Granular sugar for sprinkling

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 425 deg F.
  2. Whisk together flour, baking powder, and butter until it resembles a coarse mixture. Add oats, sugar, and salt and combine.
  3. Add banana, 1 cup strawberries, vanilla, and almond milk to a blender to make a smoothie. Add this to the flour mixture and continue to whisk.
  4. Dice the other cup of strawberries and gently fold into dough.
  5. On a silicone mat, form dough into a large disc about 1 inch high. Cut the disc into 8 wedges. Sprinkle granular sugar over the dough. 
  6. Bake for 14 minutes, until golden brown or a toothpick comes out clean.
