I keep saying this is my favorite time of the year and it is, except when it’s so freaking cold! It’s been like really cold here, over -30 C with the wind chill, for my American friends that’s really really cold, like hibernation cold. Like you step outside and the hair in your nostrils freeze kind of cold. Like when you step outside of your warm house and take a breath outside you choke when the cold air hits your lungs. And not only is it so freaking cold, we’ve had a ton of snow, like so much snow that people couldn’t leave their homes because their cars are fully covered in snow, or because the wind blew the snow on the garage door, so unless you’re willing to shovel 5 feet of snow you’re stuck. Shoveling wouldn’t be so bad if you could actually last outside for more than 30 seconds. And with all this you’d think they’d declare a snow day. Not in Calgary my friends, not in Calgary. Remind me one day to tell you what happened to me in my first week when we moved to Calgary. All I’m going to say for now is that we moved in December and it was -40 C outside.
But for now let me talk to you about these banana buzz scones because they are the star of the show and what a star they are. I know you may be thinking that lately I’ve been giving you healthier recipes, but that’s a good thing, holidays are coming and we don’t want to gain too much. But regardless whether these scones are healthy or not, they are so freaking delicious. And yes they are made with whole wheat flour, because it’s good for you, that’s why. And rolled oats, and bananas, and coffee. See? Doesn’t that sound like the most perfect breakfast you could ever have? I care for you my faithful and loyal readers so this is for you. A healthy whole wheat banana buzz scone, because all our mornings should start with one of these.
