Banana Nut Scones with Maple Glaze

Deliciously moist, flaky, and crumbly banana nut scones with maple glaze. Not quite banana muffins, but everything you crave for breakfast! Recipe on sallysbakingaddiction.com

A completely spur of the moment recipe, these banana nut scones came to life over the weekend. I loved them so much but wanted to change a couple things, so I made them again on Monday when my mom visited. I’ve never made banana scones before because I’ve been afraid they’d just taste like a banana muffin. Obviously not a bad thing! But why not just make a banana muffin then?

Because a banana muffin doesn’t have that crackly top, those irresistible crispy crumbles, or nooks and crannies for major glaze absorption. A banana muffin doesn’t have the same golden brown crunchy exterior and uber flaky center. A banana muffin… will never be a banana scone.
