You’re going to love these EASY keto Chocolate Chip Scones!

These scones hold together perfectly and have an awesome texture. They keep at room temperature for about a week so it’s easy to make a batch to have on hand during the week for rushed mornings.

You can totally swap out the sugar-free dark chocolate chips for any add-in that you wish, leave your suggestions below! If you're making savory scones, simply skip the sweetener. Here’s some of my favorites:

  • Berries (blueberries, strawberries, raspberries or blackberries)
  • Cinnamon & chocolate chips, or orange zest & chocolate chips
  • Bacon and cheese (try our Keto Cheese & Chive Scones)
  • Sun-dried tomato and basil (try our Low-Carb Pizza Scones)
  • Blue cheese + strawberry + basil (seriously so good!)

Can I Use Dark Chocolate?

Any dark chocolate with at least 85% cacao is a good low-carb option. Although there is a small amount of sugar, the carb count is low and it's one of the ingredients that can be used in moderation when you follow a healthy low-carb diet. You can also use sugar-free chocolate sweetened with stevia or inulin such as Lily's (milk or dark).

Can I Make Nut-Free Keto Scones?

You can easily convert this recipe to nut-free by using an equivalent amount of ground sunflower seeds instead of almond flour.
