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
  • eggs
  • sour cream
  • butter
  • Keto strawberry jam
  • Cream

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

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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!
  4. 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.
  5. 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 😉

Storage Tips

  • 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.

      Fantastic recipe! I had run out of my blueberry chia jam and decided to make a strawberry jam this time, found your recipe and then saw that you also had a scone recipe. A devonshire tea- yes please! I thought the scones may be a bit complex, but looking at the ingredient recipe , it was simple and I already had everything I needed. They turned out magnificently. My husband was laughing at me as I was grinning smugly. A devonshire tea is the one thing I always make sure I order when on holiday. I consider it such an indulgence…so pleased I could have that indulgence sitting at my own dining table on a Saturday afternoon! I didn’t have almond flour, so subbed in almond meal instead.
      The jam- my original reason for visiting your website- was also a huge success. Really tasty. I used frozen strawbs.

    • hi Chris! I’m not sure what you mean by “the second for one scone” – do you mean can you have seconds?! Haha! The nutritional panel is for one scone if that’s what you were asking.

  • 4 stars
    Well, howdy-do, Queenie: Made these today, me & the wife *LOVE* them! They are GREAT!!! Didn’t have any ‘egginess’, actually, they have a great texture, & the ‘jam’ was *FABULOUS*!, too! I didn’t have any strawberries so I used some blueberries, just over a cup, 2 packets of Xylitol, 1/4 cup chia seeds, 1/4 tsp vanilla extract, & 1/2 TBS lemon juice (concentrate), & it was really good, so good, we kinda’ pigged out on them. Thank you for your recipe, I’d been looking for some ‘keto’ scones, & these are REALLY GREAT!
    Have a GREAT day, Neighbor!

    YUM! I made the jam while these were cooking and it was delicious!
    I made 3 berry jam as that’s what I had in my freezer 😛 I used stevia as well, as we didn’t have xylitol, but only a very small amount.
    The texture was pretty good, I thought., more cake like though, than scones but very nice all the same. Do you think I could add some cocoa powder to make it like chocolate sponge? I’m not much of a cook so asking what you think 🙂

    • Hi Mel! Yes you sure could add some cocoa, I’d subtract some almond flour so they don’t end up too dry and see how you go. I do have a chocolate sponge cake recipe too 😉

  • Hi Rachel

    The scones were light and fluffy but I felt they lacked flavour possibly salt needs to be added. I used unsalted butter as you suggested but maybe I just like them saltier – the strawberry jam was lovely 😊

    • Hi Jenny, thanks for the feedback! You could definitely try some salt if you wanted, others had commented they are too salt so I guess it comes down to personal taste and salty preferences 🙂

  • Hi Rachel,texture wasgreat but had an overiding taste of backing soda,could the amount be reduced without compromising too much on texture?

  • Great recipe, thanks so much. Can I just ask though if the scones need stored in the fridge or not and how long they will keep? Thanks again

    • I don’t refrigerate mine but usually eat them within 2 – 3 days. They’d last longer in the fridge and you can freeze them too.

  • Hi Rachel, can’t find recipe for the Jam, I’d love to try these, I know keto cheese scones come out tops. Could you supply the Jam recipe.
    Thank you
    😍👌

  • Hi
    I made these today mine still felt soft after 20min also which almond flour the really white one or the courser dark one? Pls
    Still in oven atm …… TIA Kareena

    • Hi Karena, I havent had that happen before, did they firm up for you? They dont go hard like flour scones but should be golden. I use the fine almond flour.

  • 5 stars
    These scones are absolutely delicious! They were so easy to prepare and turned out fluffy and light. Substituted the sour cream with Greek yogurt. Served them with the jam and a dollop of plain Greek yogurt. Yummy! Also ate them with butter, so good.
