Broccoli Cheddar Biltong Scones (Keto)
So you know that I'm always for a cooking challenge and coming with new fun ways to use daily foods or just to step up the game of eating healthier and nutrient dense. This recipe is no news since we are using nutritious foods in a delicious scone!
For this recipe I wanted to include some biltong, and if you are not familiar with biltong then you are up to a treat. What it is is a high quality steak that has been air-dried and to the bite it's softer than jerky. It's just so good! You have to try it.
About these Broccoli Cheddar Biltong Scones:
Okay, this are almost carnivore because the only plant-based ingredient here is broccoli. Which will add some nutrients and fiber. Besides that, this recipe is all carnivore!
For the flour we are using pork rinds, crushed into flour, they already sell them that way but you can simply blend your and done! We've got eggs, biltong (of course) and cheddar cheese, preferably grassfed to make sure we are getting all the goods in a scone.
This is a nutrient dense scone! High quality protein, no additives, artificial ingredients. All simple and wholesome ingredients, these scones are just perfect as a snack or a side dish along with some garlic butter, how does that sound?
Check for your ingredients! I believe that it's so important to get quality ingredients no matter what type of lifestyle you follow or live by. When it comes to animal products I recommend getting grass-fed and pastured raised whenever it's possible; that also means that animals were more likely to be treated better.
Check for your sales at your supermarket, buy meats with your local farmers and asked them about how they treated and fed their animals. Eggs are now find organic and pastured raised in almost every supermarket and you'll be surprised by the difference: better taste, better yolk and higher in omega-3's.
For the biltong I used the brand Stryve that you can get on Amazon. And the ingredients here are simple and their biltong is fire, AKA, delicious!
Overall, these are the ingredients needed for these Broccoli Cheddar Biltong Scones:

Overall this recipe is:
Meal Prep Friendly
The end result
Soft, chewy and with crispy outside, moist inside. These are just amazing, the biltong taste plays so well with the cheddar cheese and the broccoli. Even though we are skipping the flour these are fluffy and soft thanks to the cheese, since gluten acts like the glue in conventional baking methods.
Out of the conventional here! Keto, gluten free and heavenly scone that will be great at your next brunch with family or friends or even as a meal prep addition to pair with some veggies and protein.
Pro tip! Toast them or air fry them for a few minutes to make them even crispier and irresistible. I air fried mine for 3 minutes, but that also depends on your airfryer, I find that this changes from air fryer to air fryer.
This is a great recipe that your family or friends will love! Easy to prepare and elegant and fun no matter the occasion, this recipe is made to enjoy in the most effortless and most delicious way ever, I mean... only simple and minimal ingredients in a high protein, paleo and dairy free tropical vibes in a bite!
