These Triple Chocolate Banana Scones are moist, delicious and perfect for with a cup of coffee or a mug of tea! My kids love them as an after school snack.
Bananas are the one fruit that I don’t love to eat. A while back, I read that one of my food blogger friends only eats “crunchy bananas” or ones that aren’t fully ripe. I can’t remember who it was that said it but I need to give it a try because I’m determined to like bananas!
That being said, I LOVE using in smoothies and lucky there is always a banana or two that overripens and I get to use it for baking! These triple chocolate banana scones are the perfect thing to grab for a quick breakfast or as a chocolatey snack.

How To Make Triple Chocolate Banana Scones
Step One: Make Dough
Whisk together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Cut in cold butter. Mix in the mashed bananas, sour cream, chocolate chips, milk, egg, and vanilla until the dough starts to come together. Then, gently knead the dough until combined.
Step Two: Make Loaves
Divide the dough in half and form two 8-inch circles on a greased baking sheet. Cut the loaves into wedges without separating them.
Bonus kitchen tip: Use a cheese grater to shred the cold butter into the flour mixture, and then use a pastry cutter to finish the job.
Step Three: Bake
Bake the scones at 425 degrees for 14-16 minutes.
Step Four: Drizzle
Allow the scones to cool and then cut them into wedges. Melt chocolate chips in the microwave and drizzle on the scones.
Bonus kitchen tip: Spoon the melted chocolate chips into a plastic sandwich bag. Snip the corner and pipe the melted chocolate across the scones.
Triple Chocolate Banana Scones are a great way to use extra bananas and are the perfect way to start the day!

Are you sure the flour measurement is correct? This was more like a batter less like a scone. I’m chilling the dough in hopes that the steam will help puff the dough. I also added more flour- there was absolutely no way to knead this “dough”

This didn’t work for me, the batter was too thin. Sorry!
