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!

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... 😊
Thanks!
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!
