The Most Australian Keto Vegemite and Cheese Scones!

The Most Australian Keto Vegemite and Cheese Scones!

Does it get anymore Australian than Vegemite and cheese? How about Keto Vegemite and Cheese Scones?

Keto Vegemite and Cheese Scones are the perfect savoury snack on the keto diet! They taste just like Vegemite on toast and are a simple and easy keto snack, great for lunches.

It’s a flavour combination I have really been missing after going keto, because I can’t seem to find the right bread recipe to really get some toast happening.

Keto Vegemite and Cheese Scones really scratched that itch for me, so I hope they do the same for you!

Keto Vegemite and Cheese Scones are the perfect savoury snack on the keto diet! They taste just like Vegemite on toast and are a simple and easy keto snack, great for lunches.

My aim with this recipe was to combine the wonderful bitter Vegemite taste with gooey cheese and some melted butter, without going through the hassle of making one of those 8 – 10 egg loaves of bread that most keto recipes recommend.

For my non-Australian Keto lovers, please give this recipe a go! At least next time you meet an Aussie and they ask if you have tried vegemite, you can give a definitive answer. And hopefully that answer will be YES!

Vegemite has a number of vitamins that are important in any diet, and especially on keto. From the Vegemite website;

The B vitamins (thiamin B1, riboflavin B2, niacin B3 and folate) in VEGEMITE help to provide vitality and energy to help get your day started. Thiamin is essential for brain function, Riboflavin supports your nervous system, Niacin is essential for energy release and Folate helps to fight fatigue.

Consider yourself a true-blue fair dinkum Aussie once you make these Keto Vegemite and Cheese Scones!

I use Australian Tasty Cheese to get that really cheese, savoury taste but you can use whatever you have on hand. I’ve even tried it with mozzarella before, and while it was yummy, it wasn’t quite as good as the tasty cheese option.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 200C / 392F and spray a 12 cup muffin tin with olive oil spray or grease with butter. You can also use a silicone muffin tray. 

  2. In a large mixing bowl, combing the almond flour, salt and baking powder evenly, breaking up any lumps. 

  3. In a small microwaveable bowl, put the vegemite and butter and microwave for 20 - 45 seconds until melted. Stir to combine, but it's ok to leave it a bit uneven as this gets the 'vegemite on toast' effect by having some thicker bits of vegemite. 

  4. In a separate small bowl, whisk together the sour cream and eggs. It may be a little lumpy initially, but keep whisking until it is evenly combined. 

  5. Mix the dry flour mixture with the two wet mixtures and 1/2 cup of the grated cheese.

  6. Spoon evenly into the muffin tin, and place a small spoon of the remaining grated cheese on top of each scone. 

  7. Bake for 12 - 14 minutes until browned and cheese is melted. 

  8. Serve warm with extra butter on top.

Made these today for my hubby to have for a snack or lunch. Substituted marmite for the vegemite as we’re a marmite family! Used about 3 tbsp marmite as it’s a strong flavour and they turned out fabulous. I had one for morning tea and loved the texture and taste. Fabulous heated up with butter.

These go great with soup, and I don't bother to heat them from the fridge. I found 4 Tbsp of vegemite is a bit much so next time I'll try just 3. My substitutes for dairy ingredients works fine too. I wonder what they're like with peanut butter? I must try that sometime.

[…] 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!  […]
