Crumbly, delicious scones don’t need tons of gluten. These are free of refined grains, sugars, and oils; and full of healthy fats, antioxidants, and flavor. They are perfect for Paleo eaters or anyone looking for a sweet but healthy treat. (Can’t find cashew flour? Grind some up at home with the nuts and a blender.)
