As a stay-at-home mom, I’m usually the one baking cakes, cookies, etc. for special occasions, and it’s not unheard of that a mom bakes her own birthday cake. That’s just the way it is sometimes, and personally, I’m okay with that! If baking my own chocolate cake means that it will turn out exactly how I love it, and I get to spend time in the kitchen, I have nothing to complain about. It is, however, nice to get other members of the family involved in the baking, so that mom can have a break and be treated herself. With Mother’s Day coming up, I’ve got a suggestion for you—meet my Chunky Monkey Scones! Moist scones studded with chocolate chips and chunks of banana, perfect for dunking in a glass of cold milk.
They are the perfect treat to teach your kiddos (or sweet loving husband) how to make because they’re easy and so delicious that your kids will want to make every day a special day just to have an excuse to make them again! You can find my recipe for Chunky Monkey Scones over on Savvy Sassy Moms. For more delicious quick bread ideas, check out this fabulous list of the 25 Best Quick Bread Recipes from Cooking Light!
