Gluten-free Blueberry Scones

Sounds to good to be true? Well, its not! πŸ˜‰ This is a very easy recipe and something you can bake just before friends come over. The recipe uses Almond flour as a basis, instead of normal wheat flour.

Almond flour is rich in protein, low in carbohydrates and high in fat, good fat that is. Always use Almond flour with caution. The reason is that oneΒ cup of almond flour contains about 90 whole almonds! This recipe used 2 cups of Almond flour, so don’t eat the entire batch in one go.

One slice of this Blueberry scone a day will be sufficient and a good treat. {Moderation is key!}
