Lemon Ricotta Scones
(gluten free, sugar free, grain free, dairy free, Keto)
2 1/2 cups (280g) Almond flour
1/3 cup Swerve Granular Sweetener
1 tbsp baking Powder
1/2 tsp salt
Zest of one lemon
2 large eggs
1/2 cup Kite Hill Ricotta
1/2 Tsp lemon extract
 
Lemon Glaze 1/4 cup Swerve Confectioners
1 tbsp Lemon Extract
 
Amusingly leaving out binders on this makes them a bit crumbly and is the perfect texture for scones and a great gluten free treat.
 
1. Preheat oven to 325F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper
2. In a large bowl whisk together almond meal, sweetener, baking powder, salt, use a sift to sift out into the bowl again and whisk in zest
3. In a separate bowl mix the eggs, ricotta, and lemon extract.
4. Combine the ricotta mix into the flour mix and stir until dough is well combined.
5. Divide the dough in half. and pat into two 6" diameter circles on the parchment paper lined sheet.
6. Cut each into 6 wedges with a dough knife or butter knife using a spatula you can spread them out on the pan a few inches apart
7. Bake around 25mins until golden brown and firm
8. Let cool and whisk the powdered sweetener and lemon juice and drizzle over the cooled scones.

Hey.  Would these be a good non- sweet biscuit?  My son and his Celiac friend are always looking for a nice biscuit to put gravy on or dump chili on.  They use the gluten-free

Bisquick now but it's only "OK".

Not really they have no binders in them, they crumb really easy, this would not work for a biscuit. As a scone this works great, not so much in something that is supposed to be more tough. I made some tough textured dinner rolls grain free that reminds me of those cheap ones in the square packages, deduce that binder in half for a softer biscuit like texture and do more more by whisking the eggs before use. Other options would be my cheddar biscuit recipe might really be a hit with them.

The cheddar biscuit!  That might work.... as long as Mom buys the ingredients. ( and she / me would) Lol

As an alternative to the gluten-free Bisquick, I've seen other people say that Pamela's gluten-free baking mix ( http://www.pamelasproducts.com/products/baking-mixes/pamelas-baking-pancake-mix/ ) is much better.  I found it at our local Fred Meyer's, so it seems likely it's a common item at any of the Kroger store chains.  Haven't tried it yet, so I can't offer personal opinion, only hearsay ;-) 

(And those lemon scones look terrific!)

Umm no offense but this is counter productive to my post/blog ...the whole point of these is grain free, corn free, low carb, and dairy free....while I have suggested pamela products on my alternative list on another post, this blog is focused on no gluten, corn, dairy and lowering carbs, grains, and starches. Pamela product you suggested is something I would not feed my family, friends, and even refuse to allow in my kitchen or use as a chef. It is a heavy grain, carb bases, and use dairy products (lets not go off on this tangent). They do make a paleo blend, a grain free, blend and a dairy free blend I might suggest though for pancakes.

While I do appreciate the comment on the scone looks.....this for ME is like someone going to our celiac forum and telling use to Aunt Jemima pancake mix cause the gluten flour makes it taste great....I have reactions to lactose intolerance, whey allergies, and can not eat carbs to put this in perspective.

If you want a good baking flour and since your local store stocks the Pamela brand the following might be appropriate to use and match the low carb, grain free diet this blog is about. I personally do my own blends of almond, and coconut flours to keep pricing down (walnut, pecan, etc are expensive)  http://www.pamelasproducts.com/products/baking-mixes/nut-flour-blend/

    • I heard you should put broken teeth in whole milk and then in the fridge.   I cracked off a corner of my back molar recently.  It doesn't show, but I can empathize.  A celiac relative cracked off both of her front teeth.   My Asperger sense of humor says it's time to go shopping for a grill!  Maybe adding a calcium supplement to balance out the magnesium will help.  The body leeches calcium out of teeth and bones when it needs more.   Egads, that mak...
    • Ugh!  I am so sorry!  I just cracked a tooth (vertical) on either a macadamia nut or mint chip ice cream.   I hope the crown does the trick or the tooth is lost.  I did the same years ago with a raw carrot.   No hard stuff for me!  I hope you can get it fixed or at least protect it for a while.

I normally eat omelettes, quiches, dairy free and grain free homemade baked goods, stir fry, soups, stews, grain free bread with avocado, almond, or sun butter on them, salads, nutmeal porridge, I often serve up steaks, ribs, fish, crab cakes grain free, etc for my family. Califlour foods Plant based crust is grain and diary free, miyoko vegan mozz, some sauce and toppings and pizza, might try a daiya pizza if you can...

    • Yeah get those nightmares randomly of eating somewhere or something not safe.

      Food allergies? Allergies do not really go away.....they are pretty much life.
      Food sensitivities and intolerance issues do go away sometimes. I used to have a legume issue with pea protein that went away in a few months, the sesame issue stuck around for over a year I can eat in moderation now, and double issues with olives (Adultered with corn oil I was allergic to and then...
    • My son is 5 years old and was diagnosed almost 2 years ago. He has gluten free tooth paste, shampoo and bubble bath. Since we kiss our son do we need to worry about what we use, especially what we put on our face? Chapstick? Make-up? Shaving Cream? Face lotion? Thank you!!! 
    • Thank you so much cycling lady!! All that information and articles are very helpful. He does not have a 504 because he is at a Catholic school and his school doesn't do them. He does wash his hands before eating snack but they are all at a shared table and sharing toys. We provide his own play dough. We have temporarily pulled him out of school for a couple of months to see if we can get a handle on everything and that just helps us control his environment more in the ...
