Rosemary Sun-Dried Tomato Scones

These mouth-wateringly delicious scones capture the essence of Italians herbs, complete with Romano cheese, the seductive taste of sun-dried tomatoes, topped off with some sea salt. Dip into extra-virgin olive oil while still warm and you will knock your spouse out of the away to get another!

As written, you will need both shredded and grated Romano cheese. If preparing from an intact piece of Romano cheese, you can just shred and grate the specified amounts.

Makes 6 scones

2 cups almond meal
2 tablespoons coconut flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon sea salt
¼ cup shredded Romano cheese
1 teaspoon dried rosemary
1 teaspoon dried oregano
2 tablespoons sun-dried tomatoes (soaked in oil), finely chopped
¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 large egg
2 tablespoons Romano cheese, grated
1 teaspoon dried parsley

Preheat oven to 350º F.

In bowl, mix together almond meal, coconut flour, baking soda, sea salt, shredded Romano cheese, rosemary, and oregano. Stir in sun-dried tomatoes, olive oil, and egg.

Spoon onto parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Flatten with spoon or knife to approximately ¾-inch thickness. Sprinkle with grated Romano cheese, parsley, additional sea salt.

Bake for 30 minutes or until toothpick withdraws dry.

        Cannot wait to try these….they sound wonderful. I am just having a ball making all these great recipes I am finding on this blog and in your book as well as experimenting on my own within the guidelines. I would go with the pine (pignoli) nuts too..but then again I am an Italian who was raised on pignoli nuts which were added to meatballs, tomatoe sauce and many other dishes…but I was wondering if I can replace the Romano Cheese with Parmesean cheese instead? How many can you have…although I am sure they are very filling and satisfying so one would be enough, correct?

        • Dr. Davis

          Yes, Romano cheese is interchangeable nutritionally with Parmesan.

          Enjoy as many as you want, though I’ll bet you are stuffed after one or two!

    Cannot wait to make these!!! I love your recipes….have you considered doing a cookbook? I would sure buy one and also give as gifts :-)

    Hi Dr D
    Love your work!! Quick question, I noticed this recipe isn”t in the recipe library. Does that mean I”ll find other recipes by going through your blog archives??

    • Yes, Suzi.

      Admittedly, the archive of recipes is quickly becoming a chaotic mess!

      I”m going to have to find a fix for this so that it”s easy to browse.

      • Suzi S

        I”m sure there”s an easy fix :)
        In the mean time I”m on the most educational hunt for your recipes, going through the old blog archives and reading your past posts.
        I”m new to wheat belly having only discovered this blog last week and I just want to say thank you – I am starting to re-gain my sanity as I am now finally understanding the reasons behind the over eating. The lack of control really made me feel like I was losing my mind, and then I would beat myself up with feelings of guilt and shame for over indulging.
        This past week I have begun the wheat elimination process and I already feel so much better. I”m doing my first wheat free shop tomorrow and I finally feel empowered enough to make the right choices, so thank you.

    Thanks for this recipe.. all your other recipes have been so well accepted by all my friends that they keep asking for them… they especially love the flaxmeal wraps… though we”ve changed it to almond meal.. Awesome!
    Thanks for such an amazing book.. I”ve lost 10kg (22lbs) since the 19th of Jan 2012 (36 days) and when I”m hungry I eat and then don”t feel hungry again for ages. In the past when I lost all the weight I needed to lose I would be STARVING all the time.. this time losing weight is easy because I don”t feel starving.. I don”t even care that I can”t eat bread.. amazing!

  4. I followed the recipe the first time I made these. They”re easy, really delicious and very rich. I think I”ll make 8 instead of six as I wasn”t able to finish a whole one. (If they”d been wheat I bet I would have eaten two before I felt sated.) I”m going to try them with pesto next time. I”ll also experiment with the basic ingredients and try one with sauteed shallots or garlic and a few chopped up Kalamata or Niçoise olives, maybe some diced artichoke heart. Then I”m going to make some for brunch with a few blueberries and pecans.
    Note: Leave at least an inch-and-a-half between scones on your baking sheet as they do spread out a little during baking. Mine were done in 26 minutes.

      Please feel free to elaborate further on your story. Everyone needs to hear about these success stories from people like you with specific conditions who experienced dramatic relief with wheat elimination.

    What if I buy the wheat berries at the Whole Foods Store and cook those to eat or grind to make bread?

    Hi Dr. D,
    A friend of mine just sent me your book which I am so looking forward to “devouring”. It looks great. For years I’ve suffered with extreme cramping in the lower bowl area, especially when under stress. I had tests done by my doctor for candida which came back negative. However, I suspect that any and all wheat products are to blame. I’ve also developed an A Fib condition which is mild but I’m hoping that going off the wheat will help with this. I’ve been a relative health person over my lifetime but as I approached 50 years old the weight gain, menopause and A fib hit me all at once. I think most MD’s don’t understand how difficult it can be to be a woman during this time of her life. There are so many other things to consider at this age (I’m now 60) then there was before. Staying healthy and active is much more of a challenge when one is tired and out of sorts all of the time. Hopefully giving up wheat will help! I’ll keep you posted! Shannon
