Banana Scones with Cinnamon Glaze from Lori Lange's newest cookbook! The perfect addition to your morning cup of coffee!
I love cookbooks. I collect them and read them like novels. All of my cookbooks have post-it cards sticking out of them, bookmarking the recipes I want to try.
Once in a while, I will find a cookbook that is hard to put away. You start flipping through the pages and instantly feel the need to run to the kitchen and start cooking. That's what Lori Lange's aka RecipeGirl's cookbook is to me. I had the pleasure of receiving Lori's signed copy of her newest cookbook. Lori is a pioneer in food blogging. She started her super successful blog in 2006 and grew it into one of the most popular blogs you can find. And for a reason. Her recipes are easy to follow and the results hard to resist.
I've had her cookbook for only few weeks, but I've already made a handful of her recipes.
Upside-Down Brown Butter-Banans Coffee Cake
Cinnamon Roll Pancakes
Slow Cooker Carnitas
Creamy Skillet-Baked Penne Pasta
Meyer Lemon Loaf Cake
.....and I still have tons bookmarked!
So with so many to choose from for today's feature, I decided to give it up for a family vote. These Banana Scones with Cinnamon Glaze won the hearts of our kiddos and were voted number one! They are absolutely perfect. We loved the banana flavor and the cinnamon glaze was finger-licking good! You have to try them!

I just put the banana scones into the oven - can't wait to give them a try! I used about 1 cup of mashed bananas since 1. I had them and 2. more banana flavour never hurt! Did have to add a decent amount more flour though so the dough was manageable. I will report back 🙂
ooh those Butterfinger Chunk Cookies look amaaazing!!

The easiest pound cake recipe and also the brownies with peanut butter cookie dough. Yummy!
I love scones, and these look delicious! Lori's recipes are all winners, and I'd love to win her cookbook.
I went straight to the kitchen this morning to make these! I used my G/F flour blend, subbed the wet ingredients with one flax egg, no butter (used 1 Tbsp. grapeseed oil) and 3 Tbsp. almond milk mixed with plain Greek style yogurt plus the mashed banana. Patted into a square, cut into 6 scones and pressed crushed toasted pecans into the top before baking. These are AMAZING!! I can't wait to make her strawberry ice cream with G/F sandwich cookies for our teens! YUMMMM!
