These low carb berry scones not only low carb, they are gluten free and so delicious! Using almond flour and frozen berries it takes only minutes.
I have never made scones before. I’m not sure if I mentioned this but I am a terrible baker. I feel like I’m a pretty good cook but a terrible baker. So when I saw this recipe and I had all the ingredients I thought I’d give it a try.
I also wanted to have a gluten-free breakfast item for my husband to eat. He loves his blueberry bagel in the morning and I’m trying to get him away from that after reading “Grain Brain” and “Wheat Belly”. So this was an attempt to make something he would like. And he did. He said he would definitely eat this for breakfast so I am happy. 🙂
It’s very easy to whip up and I’m sure you could freeze them but since it only makes 6 scones, they go fast. It’s adapted from Healthy Living How To’s Cranberry Drop Scones. All I did was substitute frozen berries instead of the cranberries. Try them out and let me know how you like them.
