Get into the holiday spirit with these low carb eggnog scones. Such a festive keto breakfast treat!
Okay, so you’ve made a big batch of my sugar-free eggnog. You’ve had turned it into a cocktail or two, you’ve made a few low carb eggnog lattes. Now what? You still have a few cups left and you’re worried it will go bad. I feel you! Even when I only make a half batch, I typically get to a point where I’ve had enough of it as a drink and I am left staring at the container. Eggnog is rich stuff. Deliciously, keto friendly rich stuff but it can be hard to slog your way through a whole batch of it unless you have a lot of little helpers. And the little helpers in my house don’t like eggnog so it’s left to me and my husband to put it away.
Thankfully, it’s really fun to bake with. I’ve made low carb eggnog bread and low carb eggnog cheesecake bars in the past. I also made eggnog donuts last year. This year, I mulled over a number of options. Eggnog ice cream? Eggnog cookies? Eggnog Pie? Many of these sounded appealing but I was up early one morning and I was hungry, so I opted for scones.
Now, my little helpers may not like eggnog as a drink but they sure like eggnog in scone form. I barely managed to wrangle one of these for myself, they were so popular. Now I have a really good idea what to serve on Christmas morning. And what to do when I have a cup or two of sugar-free eggnog staring me in the face!
