Keto Scones, Jam & Cream – The Ultimate Keto & LCHF Afternoon Tea

Keto Scones, Jam & Cream – The Ultimate Keto & LCHF Afternoon Tea

Ok if you’ve been looking for a simple, tasty and scrumptious Keto treat, then these Keto Scones have you covered!

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!

Keto scones are perfect for any occasion and are lovingly served with Keto Strawberry Jam and Whipped cream. Enjoy! #keto #easyketo #lazyketo #ketosnacks

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 Queen got 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

If you are making these Keto Scones on your own, freeze them in aluminium foil in batches of 2, and they’re ready to go whenever you want.

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.

They do have a saltier taste due to the sour cream so I suggest using unsalted butter.

Hot tip! I tried these recently using greek yoghurt instead of the sour cream and it was YUM.

You can prepare these Keto Scones in 20 minutes including the jam, making them perfect for unexpected guests or a quick dessert.

Watch the video to see how easy they are to make!

These keto friendly scones use almond flour, which is obviously much more dense than ordinary flour so they need help from lots of baking powder.

A quick tip – most brands call almond flour and almond meal the same thing. Really waht you want is the fine blanched almonds, not the coarser almond meal that still has the skins on. Y

ou can tell because it will be white and uniform (blanched) instead of flakey dark brown bits in it.

Serve with my Keto Strawberry Jam for the ultimate afternoon treat, ready in a flash.

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.

There are other Keto Scone recipes out there that are a bit fluffier, but need lots of tricky ingredients.

Keep it simple with my Keto scone recipe – you’ve probably got all the ingredients to go already!

Hopefully, you have everything in the pantry right now to whip up a batch of these keto scones!

You could also serve these Keto Scones in a savoury style with some melted cheese and ham on top, as the scone itself is not particularly sweet. I’ve even turned them into Vegemite and Cheese Scones! 

Is this the most Australian Keto recipe ever?

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 πŸ˜‰

      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.

    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 πŸ˜› 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 πŸ™‚

    • 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 πŸ˜‰

  • 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 πŸ™‚

  • 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.
