Nacho Cheese Triangles

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!

  1. I can’t believe how great these are! I followed the recipe, but added an extra egg since they weren’t that large. I’m amazed and can’t wait to try many more almond flour recipes….Thank you for sharing!!!!

  2. Thank you so much! All of your recipes are amazing! I am Australian and I have recently discovered your site. I just made these and am in food heaven. I am about to make a double batch again as they are all gone already – less than 15minutes out of the oven. My family descended on the ktchen before they were even out of oven.

    Thank you thank you, from the bottom of my heart, thankyou

  3. I just made these! Awesome.. I did change the spice to be more garlic cheese triangles cuz my boys LOVE garlic bread and are carb eaters.
    Will make these again for sure.
    Thank so much

  4. Oh my goodness! These are so good. I truly enjoyed them. I made a slight change. I did not have any of the chilli powder or chipotle powder, so I used red pepper flakes (first I grinded them). Then I added fresh rosemary and garlic. In addition, I added two tablespoons of flaxseed meal, and an additional egg. Also, to off set the salty factor, I added a little sweetener.

    Thanks again!

  5. Made these today and WOW are they amazing! Super simple and took me no time at all! I went very light on the chipotle seasoning, because I don’t like spice. I also added garlic powder. When making the dough, it keep cracking and wouldn’t stay together very good, so I whisked another egg and added about half of that egg. Worked perfectly!!! These (with the added garlic) remind me of Red Lobsters garlic cheese biscuits! (honestly, even better!) I suppose if you rolled the dough out thinner they could serve as crackers! I will NEVER make the usual biscuits again…these are amazing! Thanks for sharing!!!

  6. I have been GF for the last six years, but also need to avoid nuts. My Doctor is advising a high protein diet so I need a substitute for almond flour.
    Please do you have a suggestion?

  7. This recipe is fantastic and i have already baked two batches this week. I didn’t have large eggs so used two and the recipe worked well. This is such an easy recipe. Each time i substituted the spices depending on what i was making (last night i made with freshly chopped rosemary). I served with goat cheese. Even though i baked the snack with cheddar cheese the goat cheese went really well with the finished product. Wonderful recipe!

  8. Do you think I could use Bob’s Red Mill GF Biscuit and Baking Mix instead of the Almond flour? I’ve yet to use almond flour, so not familiar with substituting for it.

    Thanks for all your great recipes!

    Be well,

    Dr. Liz
