I don’t know about you, but my Facebook feed is starting to fill up with “first day of school” photos. My kids return to school next week. Eeek! It’s a bittersweet moment. I’m sad to see summer break coming to an end. There was Boy Scout camp in Oregon, programming camp and acting camp. The kids enjoyed hanging out with friends via countless playdates and sleepovers. I became obsessed with fairy gardens and had fun making several with my kiddos. And yes, we hunted Pokemon. But we can’t stop the inevitable. With the end of summer and the return of school I am looking forward to getting some real work done without the usual distractions and noises of the kids being home.

Back to school also means back to school recipes. And the recipe I am sharing today is one of my daughter’s favorites, olive oil scones. These beauties are crumbly on the outside and moist on the inside. By using olive oil instead of butter, these scones include the brain healthy polyphenols and antioxidants. The addition of almond meal and almond slices make these scones protein dense, to keep the tummies full so the brain can concentrate on some serious learning.

This week I am a featured blogger with one of my brand partners, Davidson’s Safest Choice Eggs™. You can read more about my Raspberry Almond Scones here on their blog.
