So, these lovelies were a nice addition to a great dinner! It was meatball and spaghetti night in our house tonight, but I chose to go completely MEATLESS this time!
Yes, you did read right. MEATLESS! Instead, I made my meatballs out of Zucchini and Eggplant and Oh my goodness, it was delicious!
Overall, the cook time was fairly easy once the eggplant baked in the oven for an hour or so. It’s definitely a dish that I’ll be trying the next time I feel like going meatless again. Yumm!
Anyway, back to these scones—it was super quick to make and while my scones aren’t a perfect triangular shape, I’m satisfied and the taste makes up for it most definitely!
Besides, I don’t always strive for perfection in my baking (at least for the most part—imperfections are perfect to me sometimes!), so I didn’t care for my scones to look “perfect”.

Well, it was nice to have a spiced dessert that consisted of a few least used flavors around this time of the year (Fall season equaling all things pumpkin, of course!)—bananas and raisins (especially!). They pair really nice together.
In the meantime, I made my glaze by using:
Simply mix all 3 ingredients together in a medium bowl until the consistency desired is reached, adjusting each ingredient as you go, if needed.
Let’s dig right into this recipe, shall we?
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, add the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and sea salt and whisk together until combined.
Using a pastry cutter, cut in the coconut oil into the flour mixture until everything resembles ‘peas’.
In a separate bowl, mix together the pureed banana, coconut milk, peanut butter, maple syrup, and vanilla until well combined.
Add the wet ingredients in with the dry ingredients and mix together until well combined. **NOTE: Do Not Over-mix!** Fold in the raisins.
Scoop about 1/4 cup of batter into a lined with parchment paper, leaving at least 1 inch of space in between each scone.
In a medium bowl, simply mix together all 3 ingredients until the consistency desired is reached. **NOTE: If the frosting is too thick, add additional milk (1 Tsp at a time); if it’s too thin, add additional powered sugar (1 Tbsp at a time). Wallah
Remove from the oven and allow scones to cool for at least 5-10 minutes before adding glaze to the top.
