      1/2   ts           Salt
    1       c            Whole-wht self-rising flour

    2       tb           Honey

   A bit heavier than traditional scones, because of the whole-wheat flour.
   Preheat oven to 450F (230C).  Lightly grease a large baking sheet.  Sift
   self-rising flour and salt into a large bowl; stir in whole-wheat flour.
   With your fingers, rub in butter until mixture is crumbly.  Make a well in
   center of mixture.  Pour in 1/2 cup milk and the honey and mix well.  Add
   bananas and mix with a fork to form a soft dough.  Turn out onto a floured
   surface and knead lightly.  Roll out with a floured rolling pin or pat
   dough with your hands to make a round about 3/4-inch thick.  Cut in rounds
   with 2-inch fluted or plain cookie cutter.  Place 1 to 1 1/2 inches apart
   on baking sheet; brush tops lightly with milk.  Bake 10 to 12 minutes or
   until well risen and browned on bottom.  Transfer to a wire rack and cool 5
   minutes.  Split and serve warm with butter.  Makes about 16 scones.
