Hearty banana pecan scones made with coconut oil and whole wheat flour.
Scones adapted from my pumpkin pecan scones.
*To make your own powdered sugar: Blend sugar in a blender or food processor until it is a fine powder. I used organic cane sugar but I have read that turbinado sugar works, too.
Change it up: For a less sugary topping, spread homemade pecan butter and a light drizzle of maple syrup just before serving.
Storage suggestions: These scones keep well, covered, for a couple of days at room temperature. They also freeze well for longer term storage.
Make it gluten-free: Claire commented to say that her scones turned out great when she substituted one cup brown rice flour and one cup almond meal/flour for the two cups whole wheat flour.
Make it vegan: Be sure to stick to maple syrup instead of the honey when making the scones.
Make it nut-free: Skip the nuts!
