I couldn't agree with you more about cream and jam. Another great use of brown bananas other than banana bread.

These are delightful Claudia! Hubby is mad for chocolate chip scones and if I add bananas to the mix, he will just flip! Thanks for the inspiration :)

Drick said...

yeah... breakfast and afternoon tea snacks - need lots of jam.... like the banana idea

Shirley said...

Hey Claudia,
Glad you joined the party. Good to see you've used oatmeal too.

Claudia said...

I'm ready to mash up a banana. I heart scones. All types - sweet and savory. I can tell that these are moist - a real scone inside.

Joanne said...

You know, I was thinking about making scones this past weekend but couldn't decide on savory or sweet. I'll have to give the banana chip ones a try. Sounds good.

Foodessa said...

This scone recipe is certainly different indeed. The fact that they are moist looking might just tempt me to try this recipe out.

Ciao for now and flavourful wishes,
Claudia
