When continuing to breastfeed my daughter meant I would have to go dairy-free, I found myself desperate for foods that wouldn’t trigger reactions in my baby but still satisfied my sweet tooth.

Of course, having type 1 diabetes on top of my dairy-free requirement made finding delicious treats that much more difficult!

Eventually I stumbled upon a recipe that satisfied my requirements, but it called for lemon juice. This was a problem, primarily because I don’t generally love lemon-y desserts, but also because I didn’t have any!

So I went with it and gave the recipe my own twist! Instead of lemon juice, I subbed reduced sugar vanilla almond milk and omitted the lemon zest it also called for.

These were so good! I like to make them in advance and freeze them for during the week.

These taste great with butter (I used the fake Earth Balance butter, of course) or a little blueberry jam–but I generally try to steer away from extra sugar. They’re also fantastic just by themselves!

The finished product is a little softer than a scone, to be honest, but they had a similar crumbly texture. Not quite a biscuit, not quite a scone–somewhere in between.

I like to make these small so I can have a couple if I really want, and so they last longer. If you divide the batter into 8 scones, they’re only about 9g carb a piece!

Enjoy!
