    Thanks, Chris I suppose that would work and that would make it even quicker! Just make sure the almond flour isn't fat reduced, because that could make a difference. However, my mini-food processor chopped the nuts a bit unevenly, so I ended up having a few chunky bits in the scones, and I actually think I prefer it to only using finely ground nuts.

    Quote from Sherrie: “Are these the kind of ones you have with Jam and cream? I love scones and it's been a long time!!!” Sherrie, I suppose this is a Norwegian version of scones. Your typical high-carb scones are fluffier as they are baked with mostly wheat flour and butter, I believe. So I guess these are not quite typical scones. But I had mine with some sugar free blueberry jam, and it tasted quite nice! Perhaps add some sweetener to the batter could work?

  • Quote from 2kellen2: “Hi AG, Don't forget to call in & update us on what you are doing next time :)” Kellen, I will make your wish come true here and now: I'm currently visiting my family in Northern-Norway. I'm feasting on healthy, home-made, local food, such as moose, trout freshly caught by my Dad and blueberries picked by myself in a field outside our cottage! I've also tried out some new recipes that will appear on my blog shortly. As LCHF is huge in Scandinavia, there are heaps of good low…

    Quote from Sherrie: “Would you prefer if the low carb recipe section was divided into various categories such as meat, poultry, desserts etc Would you find that easier and would you be encouraged to use the recipe section more?” YES!!! That's an excellent idea, Sherrie! I definitely think it would be easier to find relevant recipes that way, and I would probably use the forum more that way. Some suggestions for categories: Breads, egg-recipes, chicken-dishes, fish, meat, salads, cakes, desserts …

    Quote from Patty: “How's LCHF affect one's cholesterol? I eat good fats only here...olive oil, seeds and nuts, avocado, peanut paste, tahini, etc and I stick to lean chicken and fish....red meat once a week only.” Patty: I'm so sorry, but I must have missed your question back in August. When people eat LCHF their HDL ("good cholesterol") tends to go up, and the triglycerides (TG) tend to go down (high TG is bad for you). Some people experience that their total cholesterol goes up a bit. The LDL …

    Quote from wintermum: “Best. Crackers. Ever!!! I am making these all the time- the rest of the family love them too! Have no problems at all with flax going off- they easily last 2 weeks (for a double batch). Sometimes I add some chai seeds too...because I can lol!” Glad to hear you like these, Wintermum I've never had a problem with rancid flax either. I might add some chai next time, thanks for the tip
