Almond butter oat scones. Vegan. Gluten free.
Oh how I loved scones, before the whole transition over to a plant based and gluten free diet. Seriously, it was a lovely treat to grab one from a local bakery, even Starbucks! The dryness was so strangely addictive. I’ve attempted a few recipes but none left me smitten. This recipe was a moister version and quite delightful. The crunchy topping in lieu of icing was a classic spin.
These are perfect for a grab and go breakfast, paired up with a cup of tea of coffee. Even my youngest loves these to grab before classes. As the weather transitions over to cooler temps, this hearty little treat is a welcome addition to your favorite hot beverage. I hope you agree.
Happy Monday friends!

These will be perfect! Safe travels. ox
These look lovely! I recently saw this recipe featured on the site, One Green Planet, and I was wondering what size bananas you used for the recipe, and/or what the measured amount might be? Thank you for your help.
I believe they were around 115grams each. I hope that helps. ox
Thanks for replying; I live in the US and could you estimate by a 1 cup measure what 115 Grams per banana might be? I googled the info and am finding inconsistent data, as there is a difference between bananas still in the skin vs. skinned. Thanks.
You can use medium sized bananas if you don’t have a scale without skin.
