These high-protein Nacho Cheese Triangles are made with just 7 ingredients. They’re an easy savory scones recipe and also a great healthy breakfast recipe. We like to serve them as a gluten-free Super Bowl snack because they quiet the hunger of rowdy guests. Full of high-protein ingredients like almond flour, egg, and cheese, no one will guess that they’re gluten-free and low-carb because they taste so good!
I’ve been strictly gluten-free since 1998, when I was diagnosed with celiac disease. Way back when in 2001, I went paleo and have been totally grain-free ever since. During that time I’ve created hundreds of easy grain-free recipes with as few ingredients as possible. Why? To save you time in the kitchen! These easy savory scones are another healthy recipe that you can whip up in minutes.
I hope you enjoy these gluten-free savory scones as much as we do!

Thank you, Elana, once again for these wonderful cheese nachos!
I used Italian spices & added some cayenne too. I was tempted to add another egg, so glad I did not! All of your recipes are perfectly tested, & for that alone, I thank you again! So easy & delicious! My guests loved the treat! Blessings to you!
