Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with a silicon mat (such as Silpat®).

  • Combine 2 3/4 cups flour, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt in a medium bowl; stir to blend. Toss in cold butter and cut it into the dry mixture with a pastry cutter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

  • Blend mashed bananas, buttermilk, and vanilla together in a small bowl. Pour into the dry ingredients and stir gently until the mixture comes together. If it's a little too wet, add just a little bit more flour. Handle as lightly as possible and form into a disc on the prepared baking sheet. Gently cut into 12 wedges or just score the disc.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown and baked all the way through, 22 to 28 minutes. Cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before moving to a rack to complete cooling.
