Banana Split

I don't bake, so if I'm going to do it, I want to make at least two recipes. Especially when I have the same ingredient to use up, in this case bananas. The first step was Banana-Date Scones. A completely different taste and texture than my previous Vegan scone attempts, these were more like a cake or muffin. The dates were a challenge to dice up, but the sweet flavor was worth it. I upped the flax meal, and used all whole wheat flour, so they actually turned out pretty healthy. Not the best looking scones in the world, but they filled a craving for banana bread.

Next were Banana-Wheat Germ Muffins - healthy and delicious, take two. The flavor alone wasn't unique enough for me, so I added some cardamom in with the cinnamon. I still believe cardamom makes all baked goods better. I also omitted the sugar, and might not have used enough banana, so the result was tasty but not sweet. Once again, soy butter to the rescue.

At least now I have two options next time I have overly ripe bananas!
