Banana Split Scones



Banana Split Scones

This morning I created this recipe for my daughter Amanda, who requested freshly baked scones for breakfast.  I thought I whip up a batch using slightly overripe strawberries, and extra coconut milk leftover from another recipe.  The results were great! The scones are light and fluffy, and not overly sweet.  Tuck this recipe into your recipe box…strawberry season is around the corner!

  1. I would love to make these…but you omitted the banana and strawberries in the ingredients. How many of each do I need ?
    Would appreciate an answer asap.
    Thank you,
