Monday.

Mondays are for scones. Because you need something to soak up all the alcohol you had this weekend at you neighbors friends sons high school graduation party. Or maybe you just need something comforting to kick-start your week. Yep, I will go with the latter.
We all know that I love me some comfort food, and if you didn’t know, I am reiterating that now.
So, yes, , Monday’s, comfort food, scones:
Because nothing says comfort more than banana bread, but in a scone.
 Yes, banana bread scones.
 That are petite so that you can have five instead of three.
Oh, and these scones just happen to be vegan and gluten-free.
Because that couldn’t make your Monday any more awesome.
Oh, and don’t forget the Cinnamon-Honey drizzle.
Because with scones there should always be a sweet something on top!
Happy Monday!

  1. This recipe is perfect! I don’t bake much with all-purpose or wheat flour and love using almond flour as a substitute. Your scones look sweet and delicious – a wonderful treat with a ton of health benefits. Nicely done!

  2. This looks awesome! Just an FYI because there is honey in the recipe it’s not actually vegan, but I think if you substituted with maple syrup it would be just as good! Can’t wait to try it.

      Ren, I have heard that there are different type of vegans and that some include honey in their diets, but honestly, I made this recipe before I researched the sugars that vegans use. You could most definitely sub with maple syrup, which is actually my sugar of choice 🙂 Let me know how it goes! Thanks for stopping by!
