Tea Time #1

There is nothing like a really good cup of tea.  It can be hot or cold.  It can be with someone or all alone.  I can drink it in a car. I can drink it on a plane.  (My apologies to Dr. Seuss)  I like it straight or sweetened with honey.   I like leaves and herbal. loose leaf and bagged.  It doesn’t matter whether I use a cute tea cup from my collection or a mug.  My favorites are Queen Anne from Harney & Sons, Winter Spice from Twinings, Ginger Peach from Republic of Tea, and… and…  and…  and…

I really, like scones and tea sandwiches.  But, I don’t eat wheat so I’ve had to find and create recipes that really work for me.  Here’s one for Banana Nut Scones that uses a mix of rice and almond flour.  Yummy in my tummy. (Sorry Shrek!)   Instead of bread on my tea ‘sandwiches’ I use lettuce or cucumber slices or corn tortillas.  Delicious!!  Of course, fresh fruit and veggies are always on the table.

Best Ever Banana Nut Scones

  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 1 cup brown rice flour  (1 cup of oatmeal will work, too.)
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp. baking soda

Preheat oven to 350 F.  Lightly spray (I use coconut oil.)  a round cake-pan (Use ceramic or glass – like a pie pan.)  Blend until smooth.  Pour into prepared pan. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes.  Cool completely!  Cut into traditional pie pieces.  Spread with maple butter, or cream cheese, or clotted cream, if you have it.

Blessings to you and yours!
