Grain-Free, Lemon, Lavendar, and Chamomile Scones

5

These grain-free scones  are moist and delicious, unlike traditional scones. They are perfect for an afternoon snack with a cup of tea. I don’t know about you, but I cannot eat grains every day or for every meal. Grains contain lechtins which are essentially the plant’s way of protecting itself from being over consumed. If eaten in high quantities, they make the stomach feel bloated and uncomfortable and can cause weigh gain. Lechtins are sometimes referred to as anti-nutrients, as studies have found that lectins can reduce the body’s ability to absorb nutrients. For that reason, I like to mix up my dishes between grain-free and grain-full. I use almond flour here, which is lechtin-free.
