Low Carb Raspberry Scones - Paleo & Candida diet friendly

If you read my Sunday week in review you might have noted that I am starting to get a little frustrated with my Candida diet. Don't get me wrong, it is working if I stick to the rules 99.9% of the time.......Which is darn near impossible if you want to ever leave your house. And its summer.  It was easier before school let out and we got off a regular routine and actually started wanting to do lots of different activities and adventures everyday.

We have packed LOTS of picnics this summer. I have been very diligent with baking and cooking and taking snacks and meals with us everywhere we go.

So I am loving this new recipe. It is completely portable. The first batch of these were intended to be chocolate cookies? Yep. But a few (lots) tweaks and 3 batches later we had these scones. They are so good! Even hubby loved them and most of my "Candida treats" he finds lacking.

I used Truvia as the sweetener. Feel free to replace with Xylitol, Stevia or any sweetener you can handle. Truvia is another controversial one, but I decided to test it out and I seem to be handling it okay.

Ideally I would just give up the sweets (not that these are all that sweet) but I just can't seem to live on meat, veggies and nuts exclusively.

So if you are like me and you are struggling with the Candida diet and need a tasty, portable snack to take on the go this recipe could be it.

Hope you enjoy!
