Low-Carb Gluten-Free Cherry Almond Scones

Scones have to be one of the most popular coffee break snacks today. Every coffee shop I come across seems to always have them on the menu. With good reason, they are moist, tender and delicious! This recipe is all of those things, but without the guilt of inhaling a gazillion carbs! I used my Low-Carb Gluten-Free Flour Mix #3 for these light and airy scones. It is lighter in texture than my other mixes, has the least carbs, more neutral flavor, and is perfect for tender pastries like these. Scones are a very versatile treat. You can add blueberries, raisins, cherries or even sugar-free chocolate chips and nuts. They don't have to be sweet treats either. I have had wonderful savory scones with herbs and sun dried tomatoes, Yumm! Let your imagination dictate your recipe!
I used two products in this recipe I would like to bring to your attention: Hi-maize resistant corn starch and Lorann Bakery Emulsions. Both are gluten-free.

Low-Carb Gluten-Free Ricotta Pancakes

I love pancakes, all kinds of pancakes! Look at how fluffy these are, Mmmm! No sweetener needed for this one either. This recipe is a variation of my original Low-Carb Pancake recipe. I used my Revised Low-Carb Gluten-Free Flour Mix for this recipe and increased the ricotta cheese a little. They turned out moist, fluffy and delicious! Just how a pancake should be. Blueberries or sugar-free chocolate chips would be wonderful additions to this recipe, but I decided to keep it simple for the first go-around. Now on to the recipe.

Low-Carb Gluten-Free Garlic and Herb Bread Sticks

Bread sticks that are low-carb, gluten-free and also soft and chewy? You found em! These are so good! They have a light texture and a flavor that reminds me of whole wheat bread. Perfect for sopping up marinara sauce. These were super easy to whip up. The dough is very workable, perfect for shaping into bread sticks.

Low-carb gluten-free, fluffy, buttermilk biscuits? You bet! I am very pleased with this biscuit recipe. You can see how light and fluffy they are in the photo above. I used the new revised version on my Low Carb Gluten-Free Flour Mix. I actually prefer the taste and texture of these biscuits over my original Low Carb Biscuit recipe. I hope you do too!

Low Carb Gluten Free Chia Bread

OK, here is my first attempt at low carb gluten free bread. I used the Low Carb Gluten Free Flour Mix I have been working on. It has a pleasant, nutty, whole grain taste and has a tender crumb. For my first attempt, I must say, it turned out pretty good! It would be a great base for gluten free "not rye" bread too. I just ordered 10 bags of gluten free oat bran online today, I will be experimenting with that as soon as it arrives. I plan to substitute oat bran for the chia in my next loaf. I'm hoping it will give it a milder flavor for those who don't like rich flavored breads.

This bread recipe makes 16 slices of bread and has 3 carbs per slice.
