For those following the Trim Healthy Mama plan, these delicious low carb scones are an S (Satisfying) dessert. These have 3 grams of net carbs per scone. This recipe is courtesy of George Stella from the book George Stella’s Still Livin’ Low Carb; A lifetime of Low Carb Recipes.
So what crazy diet am I following now? The book and plan is called Trim Healthy Mama. I am not going to go into a crazy long blog post about how this is the greatest plan since sliced bread – actually hold the sliced bread too many carbs – BUT I will say this. Following the plan loosely while on vacation, I managed to come back, not gain any weight, but in fact here it is three days after a big eating week I am down a pound less than when I left for vacation. I always, always, always gain weight while on vacation. Those days may be over. Needless to say I am pretty excited about this plan. If you are fed up with starving yourself on other plans give this one a look. Now, I am off to eat one of these delicious scones!
George Stella Raspberry Drop Scones
Here is the original recipe.
These scones aren’t just low carb, they are Paleo compliant, gluten-free, sugar-free and Trim Healthy Mama friendly.
2 large eggs, beaten until frothy
1 cup almond flour
1/3 cup Truvia (or sweetener of choice)
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup fresh raspberries
Preheat the oven to 375°F and line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients, except for the raspberries, and mix well to create a batter.
Gently fold the raspberries into the batter and use a tablespoon to drop 6 evenly spaced scones on the lined pan (about 2 heaping tablespoons for each scone).
Bake for about 15 minutes until scones begin to lightly brown. Let cool for 10 minutes before removing from the parchment paper and serving warm.

Now doesn’t the idea of a cup of coffee with cream and a warm scone sound appealing?
