Savoury Low-Carb Herbed Scones

February 14, 2021 By Sarah White No Comments

You guys have been really excited about this recipe on instagram. I was going to make you all wait until it comes out in the spring issue of Whole Family magazine but this is just the kind of recipe that is perfect for snowy February mornings, so it felt cruel to withhold it any longer. Here they are! My favourite breakfast. These low carb, gluten-free scones are a great option when you’re craving something savoury & comforting in the morning. They get their cheesy flavour from B12-rich nutritional yeast and taste fabulous when paired with some cashew cream cheese and smoked salmon. They’re also high in healthy fats and low in carbohydrates to give you plenty of energy to get through busy mornings.
