  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper, or spray with baking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk in all purpose flour, rolled oats, brown sugar, baking powder, spices, and salt.
  3. Break your cold butter into sliced and toss into the mixture.
  4. Use your hands to combine it with the flour mixture and put it in the fridge for a few minutes.
  5. In another bowl, combine the beaten egg, the low fat milk, and maple syrup.
  6. Remove the flour mixture from the fridge and create a well in the center.
  7. Add the mashed bananas and the egg mixture to flour mixture and fold just until the flour is hydrated and the mix comes together. It should be slightly sticky, but if it’s very sticky, fold in an additional 1/2 cup of all purpose flour.
  8. Lightly flour a work surface and dump the sticky dough mixture out onto the counter.
  9. Roll it out into a rectangular shape and then cut into triangles.
  10. Place scones, about 1 inch apart, on the prepared baking sheets and bake for 18-20 minutes.
  11. Let cool on baking sheet for a couple of minutes before transferring to wire rack to cool completely. Once cooled or at room temperature, proceed with the Delicia glaze.
  12. To make the glaze, just combine all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Drizzle on top each scone and let it sit until set.
