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!
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.
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 😉
