There is something so comforting about enjoying a scone with jam and cream and a cup of tea or a relaxing afternoon at home.

These scones have a lovely dense texture with a light crumb, and are best served with keto jam and freshly whipped cream. If you want the scones to be more authentic, use clotted cream, if you can find it. It's very thick contains 60% fat and it's absolutely delicious!

Ingredients (makes 8 scones)


Note: If you're using clotted cream, just one tablespoon per scone will be enough. Clotted cream is thick and very high in fat (about 60%). If your scones don't rise as much as you'd like, try swapping the baking soda with 2 teaspoon of baking powder, or use 1 teaspoon of cream of tartar in addition to the 1/2 tsp of baking soda.

Why would my scones not rise?  I followed the recipe and they turned out like hockey pucks


I'm sorry to hear that Jen. They should rise just fine although they are not meant to rise a lot. You can use gluten-free baking powder instead of the baking soda, or add 1 teaspoon of cream of tartar. This will help them rise even more.


Oh my goodness, this was incredible! These were my first low carb scones in over two years of being keto and they completely and utterly hit the spot, you've made this girl so so happy 😊 I wasn't paying attention when I flattened the dough so I got 14 scones rather than 8 so I couldn't split them in half... No matter, I just ate two instead! Gorgeous with a bit of clotted cream and some keto compote... Heaven. Thank you so much!


Thank you Anu, I'm happy you enjoyed!


I've noticed that many of your recipes contain coconut flour. I can't eat coconut flour, but I know it absorbs moisture and bakes differently than other GF versions, and cannot be substituted one for one. Do you have any recommendations? I'd LOVE to make these, but suspect they won't turn out if I swap in another type of flour... 😊
PS I've tried several of your other recipes and LOVED them. Thanks so much for all your great ideas! I'm new to Keto but even after the first week could feel the difference in my gut (and overall) health. I so appreciate blogs like yours!


Hi Aveleen, thank you so much for your lovely feedback! The general rule is to use this conversion:
1 cup almond flour = 1/3 cup coconut flour + one more egg + optionally more liquid ingredients if needed (melted coconut oil, almond milk, etc).
I hope this helps!
