Ingredients

  • 2 cups whole-wheat flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 cups rolled oats. Process 1 cup into a powder in the food processor.
  • 2 tbsp transfat-free shortening
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup almond milk (can use soy milk)
  • 2 very ripe bananas , mashed
  • 1 tsp vinegar
  • 2 tbsp flax meal (ground flaxseeds)
  • 3/4 cup walnuts , lightly toasted, then chopped

Instructions

  • Add the shortening to the flour in a bowl and, with a fork, cut the shortening into the flour until you have a fairly granular texture.
  • Add the oats, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
  • In a separate bowl, mix the bananas, almond milk, vinegar, flax meal and sugar.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix together. Add the walnuts and stir in. You will have a fairly thick but still loose batter.
  • Drop the batter on a greased cookie sheet in rounds– this batter will make around 12 scones.
  • Bake in a 375-degree preheated oven about 25-30 minutes until the tops are golden brown.
  • Eat warm with some vegan spread or a pat of jelly or just on their own.
