These low-carb, gluten-free, breakfast-friendly scones are a great option when you’re craving something savoury. They get their cheesy flavour from B12-rich nutritional yeast, are high in healthy fats and low in carbohydrates to give you plenty of energy to get through busy mornings. Plus, they’re pretty darn tasty paired with some crème fraîche or cashew cream cheese and smoked salmon!

Dillicious! You can customize these scones by using your fave combo of herbs! Try basil, dill, or rosemary—or try all three!
