Paleo Blueberry Scones

Nothing says happy Sunday morning quite like a fresh from the oven, homemade scone.

Although some of the paleo purists may argue, I think these scones are perfectly acceptable for a treat every once in a while.

Blueberries are my favorite fruit to use in baked goods. They make for great little juice pockets that add a lot of character and bright flavor. The coconut flour makes for a dense bread-like consistency that’s similar to a scone made from wheat flour.

I added ground flax seeds to the dough for a boost of Omega 3’s, fiber, and lignans. I prefer ground flax to whole because it’s easier for the body to extract the nutrients when the seed shell is already broken.

For texture and flavor, I top these scones with slivered almonds and cinnamon before baking. When the scones are finished baking, I drizzle them with raw honey then devour with a cup of freshly brewed coffee.

Enjoy!
