Hello from 38,000 feet in the air, on my way to spend a week backpacking in the Grand Canyon and exploring Zion National Park. I created this little recipe for low-carb Blueberry Almond Scones as a dense, versatile snack to fuel the trek through the wilderness.  🔥 👣

But this recipe will be useful for you in any situation if you are experimenting with a low-carb diet to lose weight, prevent or correct insulin sensitivity, improve cholesterol levels, regulate energy levels and appetite, and improve memory and learning capacity (sourcesource, source, source).  Because animal welfare and environmental sustainability are also important priorities, I crafted this recipe using grass-fed ghee.  

Ghee is a type of clarified butter that is heated, reduced, and triple-filtered.

It is a wonderful, deeply-flavored, naturally lactose-free option for dairy-sensitive tummies. I used the lovely vanilla-infused ghee from 4th & Heart (because every bit of it is so beautifully and intensively perfumed with vanilla) but there are other grass-fed versions on the market also, such as Eat Good Fat ghee, Pure Indian Foods gheeVital Ghee and Bulletproof ghee.

  • Culinary benefits of ghee include a higher smoke point than normal butter, olive oil or coconut oil, making it a great choice for sautรฉing or frying foods at high heat.
  • Nutritional benefits include richness in butyrate, a short chain fatty acid linked to an immune response that can decrease inflammation and help improve the digestive system (source), very low levels of casein (milk’s main protein) and  minimal amounts of lactose, making it better tolerated by those with dairy sensitivities.
4th & Heart's ghee has a deliciously nutty, buttery, vanilla-soaked aroma and taste. Recommend!

How to snack like a low-carb pro? Meet these Almond Blueberry Scones, made with nuts and eggs, plus the best-tasting ghee and stevia!In addition to the glorious ghee, there are three more things these Almond Blueberry Scones have going for them:

  • Vibrant, vitamin-rich, pastured eggs from Vital Farms (learn why I prefer Vital Farms eggs).
  • Great-tasting stevia (that’s not an oxymoron, promise). I considered stevia’s taste to be a deal-breaker until I found this brand.
  • Comparatively low-carb fruit. No, blueberries aren’t the most low-carb berry. But they’re a good choice relative to other fruits with a significantly higher count.
