Banana Chip Scones

Ingredients:
2 bananas
1/4 c. milk
2 tbsp. maple syrup
1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 c. wheat flour
1 tbsp. baking powder
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground ginger
1/2 tsp. salt
4 tbsp. butter
1 c. chocolate chips

Mash bananas in a bowl and add milk, syrup, and vanilla. In a separate bowl combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon, ground ginger, and salt. Chop the butter into very small pieces and stir into flour mixture. Pour the wet mixture into the dry and stir. Add chocolate chips and knead with your hands until all of the ingredients are thoroughly mixed. Form the dough into a disk that is about an inch or two thick and cut into triangular pieces. Bake on a baking sheet at 425 for about 12 minutes or until scones are lightly browned.

Pretzels

After a bit of a hiatus, we are proud to present our 100th post! These soft pretzels are super easy and can literally be made in under half an hour. Enjoy!

Ingredients:
1-1/2 c. white flour
1-1/2 to 2 c. wheat flour
1 packet yeast
1-1/2 c. warm water
1 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. sugar
1 egg
Salt

Pour warm water and yeast into small bowl and stir for a few seconds. After 5-10 minutes, when yeast has been activated, add salt and sugar to water mixture. In a large bowl combine white flour, 1-1/2 c. of wheat flour, and water mixture. Stir until combined, and add more flour if dough is still sticky. Knead dough for ~5 minutes and then pull off chunks, pull into long and thin ropes, and twist into pretzels. Whisk egg in a small bowl. Dip pretzels into beaten eggs and then sprinkle salt on top. Bake at 425 for 10 minutes and then broil on high for another 3-5 minutes until golden brown. Serve with mustard.
