When you’re hosting a brunch there’s no better way to treat your guests to a lovely weekend meal than by serving warm scones right out of the oven…gluten-free, low-sugar, high-fiber, protein-packed paleo ones. These are exactly what I served last weekend when I had people over for brunch and they were a huge hit. They are so easy to make and quite frankly I think they taste better than any store-bought scones that are made with regular flour and tons of butter and sugar. Enjoy making these this weekend! You can serve them with grass-fed butter, this goji berry jam or alone because truthfully they don’t need a thing. They are perfect as they are. Happy Weekend!
