Scones are a delicious treat to start your day off, but, like many traditional baked goods, they can be high in calories due to the amount of sugar and butter that’s used. We used mashed bananas as a natural sweetener to replace the sugar, and Greek yogurt to replace the butter, making our version just as tasty, but also lower in calories and higher in vitamins, minerals, and protein.
