Did someone say banana bread scones? Well, no, but yes! This recipe for vegan banana nut scones just so happens to taste like delicious banana bread with a different texture (obviously). These banana scones are packed with potassium from the bananas and protein from the pecans. They are just the right amount of sweet with a little kiss of spice.

How to make good Vegan Banana nut scones?

  • Don’t over mix the batter. Over mixing the batter will make these vegan scones have more of the consistency of banana bread. (Obviously, that’s not the goal.) Using a pastry cutter/blender or even a fork creates a great consistency for these scones.
  • For the best rise possible, refrigerate or even freeze the coconut oil. You want the coconut oil to be really solid.

Recipe FAQ

Can I use vegan butter instead of coconut oil?

Using vegan butter is a great alternative to coconut oil. Just make sure it is nice and cold for the best results.

Can I freeze scones?

Yup! Make sure to let them cool completely before freezing them. I would also recommend freezing them without the icing.

Can I make these banana scones gluten-free?

I personally have not tried them gluten-free yet. However, I am sure that a good gluten-free flour blend would work just fine.
