Grain and Nut Free Lemon-Blueberry Scones! Toddler-Friendly!

One of the main reasons, I love the summer time is all the fresh fruit. I love to eat it fresh and use it to bake with. Lately, I have been on the hunt for healthier baking recipes and when I came across Balanced Bites Blog with a grain and nut free scones I knew I had to give them a try. And while I am not a huge fan of turning on the oven when it is hot, this recipe is so easy and quick I decided to break the rules a little.

Tips and Tricks:

To keep the scones grain and nut free, make sure you use coconut flour and milk. Although, you can use any flour and milk to make this recipe. Another bonus for using coconut flour is that it is high fiber, which supports the digestive system.

Tapioca starch is a gluten-free binding agent that helps baked goods and improves texture. It can be a substitute for arrowroot or organic cornstarch.

Scones will be a bit tart and have a light sweet taste, which makes them great for kids, toddlers, and everyone! Pair with a bit of animal and/or plant protein to make it a complete snack.
