I sure hope you didn't give up sugar for Lent, cause I'm about to ruin your day if you did.
Introducing....banana nut scones!!!
It's okay. I'll wait while you swoon.
Even my husband, who usually is not a fan of scones, absolutely loved these. His blood sugar, however, did not. I've mentioned how I love to bake, right? And how hard it is to bake something nutritious? Most of the time, I do succeed, but this is soooo not the case.
These are ooey, gooey, ridiculously sinful. While I'm eating them for breakfast right now, they're not much of a breakfast food. Anything topped with brown sugar is more of a dessert than breakfast (so says the girl who usually eats oatmeal for breakfast -- PLAIN oatmeal with raisins). And, to be fair, they're really not that sweet. They just have a lot of "bad" carbs for diabetics.
However, my diet needs to be a bit different from my husband's. I run. A lot. And I need carbs. The "bad" ones. ;)
Plus, they're oh, so good. And if you have a strong cup of coffee with you, how much better can life get?
So we've decided these are a special treat, not an everyday occurrence. But right now, until I eat them all, it's a good week.
