Maple Pecan Scones

My recipes are grain free, refined sugar free and many are dairy free. Many people have found that by changing their diet that they have less inflammation, less pain, feeling better and energy is returning. I know several western doctors who think this diet thing is a fad and it has no effect what so ever. But I am proof that for some people it has a huge effect. I have several autoimmune illnesses and I am feeling better but the best part for me is renewed energy. I normally wake up exhausted and go to bed exhausted. It is the worst.

One of the hardest things for me to give up was flour and of course bread. I love bread. All kinds of bread. Muffins, dinner rolls, biscuits, scones, English muffins, tortillas. I have created several recipes that remove the desire for “Grain Bread”. This recipe is for a scone and is super tasty. I am so glad that you have stopped by and are reading my blog. I hope that in some small way I can be a small ray of sunshine. That I in some small way can lift you up. I truly hope you have an amazing day or night where ever you may be. Thanks so much for dropping by.

This recipe is not keto or low in calories. But sometimes I just feel like I need to splurge and have something yummy and tasty to keep myself motivated in this diet change. The flavors of the ingredients combine to make a delight to your tongue. I hope you enjoy this recipe.

    1. Mary you can use both. The maple extract is optional. They taste great either way. The maple syrup is not optional. Thanks for asking. Hope you have a fabulous day/night! Let me know if you try them.

    1. I really like the monk fruit sugar. But it is sweeter than normal sugar. If you are replacing table sugar reduce the amount. Thanks so much for the kind words. I hope you have a wonderful day/night!
