Keto Friendly Almond Flour Blueberry Scones Recipe

This recipe for keto scones takes just 30 minutes! Make the keto blueberry scones, turn on the coffee, and grab a book – it’s better than the coffee shop! Here’s how we make them:

  • Mix dry ingredients. In a medium bowl, whisk together almond flour, coconut flour, erythritol, sea salt, and baking powder.
  • Mix wet ingredients. In a small bowl, whisk together coconut oil, almond milk, vanilla, and egg.
  • Mix wet and dry ingredients. Fold the wet mixture into the dry until a dough forms – it should be pliable, but not crumbly or stiff.

TIP: If your dough is sticky, you can chill it in the fridge for about 20 minutes to make it easier to work with.

  • Form the blueberry keto scones. Place the dough onto a lined pan and form a disk shape. Cut into 8 wedges and move them apart a bit so they aren’t touching.
  • Make glaze for low carb scones. Puree coconut oil, powdered erythritol, and blueberries in a blender until smooth. Pour through a fine mesh sieve to catch blueberry skins.

TIP: Make sure to use powdered sweetener for the glaze, to avoid a gritty texture.

  • Top keto blueberry scone recipe with glaze. When the scones are done baking, drizzle glaze and spread evenly. Cool completely.

TIP: Don’t move the scones while they are still warm – they will fall apart. Let them cool completely to firm up. You can always reheat if you prefer a warm scone.

Are Scones Keto Friendly?

Traditional scones are made with flour and sugar, so are not keto. But these keto almond flour scones definitely are!

Can Scones Be Made With Almond Flour? Yes, scones can be made with almond flour and this almond flour scones recipe will show you just how easy, healthy, and delicious it is!

In fact, almond flour is my preferred flour for making the best keto scones. It’s perfect for getting the right texture and flavor. I did add a little coconut flour to improve the texture.

Can I Use Only Coconut Flour? Not with this same recipe, no. Coconut and almond flour are not interchangeable, and using only coconut flour would require too many other changes. I can’t recommend it without testing.

It’s on my list to make you a recipe for coconut flour scones, but in the meantime, try coconut flour blueberry muffins.

Can I Use Only Almond Flour? Probably, yes. You’d need to replace the 1/4 cup coconut flour in the recipe with an additional 3/4 cup almond flour instead (yes, it’s a lot more to convert), and may need to add an additional 1/4 cup, if the dough is too runny after that.

Let me know how it goes for you if you try this.

Store these low carb keto scones in an airtight container for 3-4 days.

If you won’t eat them within 3-4 days, the almond flour blueberry scones should be frozen. Store them in a freezer bag in the freezer for 2-3 months. Let them thaw at room temperature and reheat in aa 350 degree F oven if you want to warm them up a bit.

Ingredients

Scones

  • 1 cup Blanched almond flour
  • 1/4 cup Coconut flour
  • 3 tbsp Erythritol
  • 1/2 tsp Gluten-free baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp Sea salt
  • 1/4 cup Unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 tbsp Coconut oil (melted)
  • 1 large Egg
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup Blueberries

Glaze

  • 1 tbsp Coconut oil (melted)
  • 1 tsp Powdered erythritol
  • 2 tbsp Blueberries

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (177 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine almond flour, coconut flour, erythritol, sea salt, and baking powder.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together coconut oil, almond milk, vanilla extract, and egg. Fold the wet mixture into the dry until a dough forms. (The dough should be pliable but not crumbly or stiff; add a little more almond milk, a teaspoon at a time, if it’s dry.) Fold the blueberries into the dough.
  4. Place the dough onto the lined pan and form a disk shape, about 1in (2.5 cm) thick. Cut into 8 wedges (like a pie or pizza). Move the pieces about 1 in (2.5 cm) apart. Bake for about 18-22 minutes, until golden.
  5. Meanwhile, prepare the glaze. Puree the glaze ingredients in a blender. Pour through a fine mesh sieve to catch (and discard) the blueberry skins. When the scones are done baking, drizzle the glaze over them and spread evenly. Cool completely (scones and glaze will firm up as they cool).
