Serves: 8
Ingredients
  • 1½ cups whole wheat flour
  • 1½ tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter, cold & cubed
  • ¼ cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 3 tbsp low-fat buttermilk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
Glaze
  • 2 tbsp confectioner's sugar
  • ¼ tsp almond extract
  • 2 tsp low fat milk
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees & line a baking sheet with either parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon & salt. Add the cubed butter & mix it in with a pasty cutter or the back of your fork. Combine until the butter is broken down into the size of a pea & the dough feels like sand.
  3. Make a well in the middle of the flour mixture & add in Greek yogurt, mashed bananas, honey, buttermilk & vanilla. Stir until just mixed together.
  4. Transfer the dough onto the baking sheet & use a spatula to form into a round circle (about less than an inch tall). If your dough seems dry, you can brush it lightly with some milk to add in some moisture during the baking process. Pre-slice the dough into 8 segments with a sharp knife.
  5. Bake for 19-22 minutes or until top is golden brown. Cool on the baking sheet for 5 min before transferring to a wire rack.
