Breakfast, Brunch, Potluck, Camping

My family and I are getting ready to take off for a long weekend of camping. When we go camping, I like to make our meals as easy as possible. I choose foods that can either be prepared before we leave or easily done at our campsite. 

For this trip, I decided to bring biscuits for a breakfast. I had just heard about combining blueberries with lemon and thyme. I thought they sounded like a fun addition to my rustic biscuit recipe. 

Sugar-Free Blueberry Lemon Thyme Rustic Biscuits

Breakfast, Brunch, Potluck, Camping

Ingredients:

2 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, leveled
1/4 cup monk fruit
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1 and 1/2 TBS baking powder
1 stick of FROZEN butter
1 large egg
2 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup heavy cream
1/3 cup plain greek yogurt

8-ounce package cubed and frozen cream cheese
1 cup frozen blueberries
zest of 1 lemon
1 tsp fresh chopped thyme

Breakfast, Brunch, Potluck, Camping

Directions:

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, combine all of your dry ingredients- flour, monk fruit, salt, and baking powder. Then grate the stick of frozen butter with a cheese grater into the bowl with the dry ingredients. Work quickly, you want the butter in small cold pieces. When you are done, set this bowl aside. If it is warm in your kitchen, you may want to put it in the refrigerator or the freezer until you are ready for it. 

Next combine the wet ingredients in a medium-size bowl- egg, vanilla, cream, and greek yogurt. Once your wet ingredients are stirred together, add them to your dry ingredients. Using a wooden spoon, combine these ingredients. You don’t want to over mix. Just stir until they start to come together. Now add in your cubed and frozen cream cheese, frozen blueberries, lemon zest, and fresh chopped thyme. Again, you don’t want to over mix. Once you feel that the ingredients have been dispersed in the dough evenly, stop mixing.

I wanted our biscuits to have a rustic look so I used a spoon to drop a large ball of dough onto my cookie sheet. The dough balls were approximately 1/2 cup in size. If you want a more uniform look, you can use a large cookie dough scoop or even roll your dough and use a biscuit cutter. 

Bake your biscuits at 400 degrees F for approximately 15-20 minutes or until the tops are golden brown.

These are dense biscuits packed full of flavor! If you look closely, you can see the chunks of cream cheese tucked in the buttery layers of the biscuit. It’s like a pillow of goodness waiting for you in each bite. 

Sugar-Free Blueberry Lemon Thyme Rustic Biscuits are delicious as is, with a pat of butter, topped with fruit preserves, or a drizzle of honey. 

Enjoy!

  • paula peterson

    This is a great recipe. I tried this with my daughter and it turned out well.

  • Brett

    I love that it is sugar free. I’m not diabetic but at what point was prediabetic along with tens of millions of Americans that really have no clue they are or tracking that way or worse diabetic….It wasn’t until I started trying to actively watch diet and improve lifestyle that I paid attention more….. and Sugar free is a buzz word these days and most people over look it entirely. Even really healthy people fit and athletic people can over consume sugar each day…

    Not to get all science Bill Nye on you but heres a little info form Heart.org (copied and pasted straight from the site but please confirm your own research and talk with your doctor for your own health guidelines.)

    American adults consume an average of 77 grams of sugar per day, more than 3 times the recommended amount for women. This adds up to around 60 pounds of added sugar annually – that’s six, 10-pound bowling balls, folks! The numbers are even worse for children. American kids consume 81 grams per day, equaling over 65 pounds of added sugar per year. Think of it this way – children are ingesting over 30 gallons of added sugars from beverages alone. That’s enough to fill a bathtub! Where’s all this added sugar coming from?

    AHA Sugar Recommendation
    To keep all of this in perspective, it’s helpful to remember the American Heart Association’s recommendations for sugar intake.

    Men should consume no more than 9 teaspoons (36 grams or 150 calories) of added sugar per day.
    For women, the number is lower: 6 teaspoons (25 grams or 100 calories) per day. Consider that one 12-ounce can of soda contains 8 teaspoons (32 grams) of added sugar! There goes your whole day’s allotment in one slurp

  • Thomas Gibson

    As a diabetic, I can appreciate this recipe. Thanks for the post.

  • Lisa P.

    I’ve never tried baking with monk fruit, but I would like to try it. I like the idea of combining lemon and thyme with the blueberries. It really elevates something basic like a biscuit.

  • Betty Curran

    I have to try this recipe. I love the blueberries.

  • Shirley O

    These Biscuits look so good and I love that the recipe is sugar free. Thank you for the post.

  • Dana

    I’m a scone lover and this looks like it could be a close cousin. Just wondering w/the thyme in it if it won’t be breakfast-y enough so I might test leaving that out of some

  • Christy gamber

    I was sold when I heard blueberries and cream cheese!
