Scones, jam and cream is an Australian institution, no doubt hailing back to our English ancestors.
This Keto Scones recipe is my most popular recipe on one particular day – Royal Weddings!
When Harry and Megan got married, this page nearly crashed because EVERYONE wanted scones, and if you’re keto, you want Keto scones WITH Keto Strawberry Jam.
Don’t worry, this Keto Queen has you covered! I’ve got the Keto Strawberry Jam recipe too.
You can buy Keto strawberry jam from places like Low Carb Emporium here in Australia. Here’s the thing though – it’s actually super quick and easy to make your own!
In my recipe I use chia seeds which adds some great fibre as well, and most of us need more fibre on our Keto diet.
Get your jam on the stove top simmering away while you make the Keto Scones, and by the time the scones are cool, the jam is ready at the same time. WINNING
A warm scone, fresh out of the oven is lovingly slathered with butter and topped with fresh, sweet keto strawberry jam and whipped heavy cream.
You can prepare these Keto Scones in 20 minutes including the jam, making them perfect for unexpected guests or a quick dessert.
Ingredients for Keto Scones
Chances are, you’ve got all of these ingredients in the pantry already! Here’s what you will need;
- Almond flour
- Baking powder
- sour cream
- Keto strawberry jam
Substitutions and Ingredient tips for Keto Scones
Almond Flour: Make sure you are getting the fine, blanched almond flour (sometimes called almond meal). The coarse, brown almond meal is a little dense for this recipe. I like Barney Butter Almond Flour from iherb.
Baking Powder: Any will do, I just get mine from the supermarket!
Sour Cream: Any dairy based fat will do if you don’t have sour cream on hand. The sour cream adds a creaminess, but a little sourness as well. I’ve swapped it for yoghurt and cream cheese in the past, and both are just as delicious!
Butter: unsalted is best, as they are already a bit salty from the other ingredients.
Keto Strawberry Jam: I make my own using my Keto Strawberry Jam recipe here.
Tips for making Keto Scones
- I use a fair bit of baking powder in this recipe to help get them a little fluffier – the constant battle of keto baking with almond flour! It does give it a slight bitter taste, which I like, but you could reduce it by half if you don’t prefer this.
- They are still a pretty dense little thing, but I wanted to keep the recipe relatively simple without using 100 different complicated flours that you may or may not have.
- Get your jam going while the scones are in the oven and by the time the scones are cooled, your jam is ready to go!
- I love to serve with strawberry jam and some whipped cream. Add a little powdered sweetener and vanilla to your cream for an extra special treat.
- One last tip for these Keto scones – you can make 12 little scones out of the recipe, or make 8 larger ones that are big enough to cut in half like a traditional scone. I like to do this and have an extra large treat 😉
- Fridge: I tend to keep these scones out of the fridge, and in an air tight container at room temperature. They will last a week or two in the fridge though
- Freezer: wrap in foil in batches of 2 and let defrost. Heat them for around 15 – 20 seconds in the microwave for a warm treat.
How many carbs in Keto Scones?
As you will see in the nutrition panel below, this Keto Scones recipe has 3 grams of carbs and 1 gram of fiber, so only 2 grams of net carbs per scone. This doesn’t include the jam and cream as it will vary depending what you use.
I repeat this a bit, but all keto snacks are sometimes treats! Even when they are low carb, it perpetuates our obsession/reliance on snacks and sweets. So plan your treat days, share them with a friend or freeze the batch to save you when you’re really struggling.
I go into a bit more detail about snacks in my 10 Best Keto Snacks list here.
Serve with my Keto Strawberry Jam for the ultimate afternoon treat, ready in a flash.
