When I first started baking, one aspect of the process that was always fascinating to me was how the same combination of ingredients could result in completely different products, depending on what you do with them. For example, you can use the same ingredients to make muffins, scones, pancakes, cookies, biscotti, or even a cake! It’s just a matter of ratios, oven temperature, and how you shape the batter or dough. These low carb scones are the epitome of that.
Being a scientist at heart, I love to experiment and figure out how things work, so it’s truly rewarding for me to see how changing different variables transforms the end result. Even given the same ingredients, you can make the mixture dense or runny, thick or thin, enclosed or out in the open, split into small portions or one large one, and so on. That doesn’t even begin to cover the possibilities that emerge when you begin swapping ingredients.
So many options!
Prior to my clean eating days, I always loved blueberry scones from coffee shops. Curling up with a hot latte, a crumbly scone, and
a good book my laptop (who am I kidding?) was the perfect way to spend a morning off. Or an afternoon or evening. Give me coffee and scones any time of day, really.
I had assumed that blueberry scones would be difficult to make and guaranteed to be unhealthy. How could something so delicious be any other way? It turns out, I was wrong about both. Making low carb scones is actually very similar to make muffins, but the batter/dough is a little thicker, and instead of pouring it into muffin cups, you just shape it into a disk and cut into wedges prior to baking.
Blueberry scones have always been my favorite. The best part is the fresh blueberries that have burst ever so slightly.
I’m actually so excited about blueberry season that my scones are double blueberry scones. They are packed with juicy blueberries inside and have a blueberry glaze on top! You can omit the glaze if you want to make these even faster, but I highly recommend including it because it really makes these sugar-free scones extra special.
This low carb scones recipe is a great staple to make over the weekend and enjoy for breakfast throughout the week. They taste like a treat, but unlike traditional scones, they are packed with protein, fiber, and healthy fats. That means they’ll keep you full for a while, without the blood sugar spike.
Who needs the carbs, anyway?
