These paleo maple pecan scones are a totally decadent and healthy swap for the bakery shop classic! Brimming with nutty maple flavor and totally refined sugar free. 
 
Back a few years ago before I gave up gluten and made such a major lifestyle change, a maple pecan scone bakery shop score was life to me. They represent all the best things about a coffee date treat –> Tender, a little flaky, slightly crisp on the edges and brimming with nutty pecan maple flavor. YAAAS. Tell me you feel the same.

But what if I told you that you could have BOTH?! Yep.I think I’ve cracked the code. Health AND treats.

Specifically these deeee-licious paleo maple pecan scones. Because after 3 (maybe 4?) batches they are so ready for your grain free coffee dates + holiday gatherings.
