Keto Cheese & Chive Scones

I’ve been wanting to make a Keto scone recipe for a while. Something denser than a muffin that I can snack on or as an accompaniment to soup.

These keto bacon and cheese scones are the perfect savoury snack. Nibble on their own, smother in avocado or dunk into a bowl of any hearty keto soup.

Ingredients (makes 15 scones)

Note: Instead of whole flax seeds that will be ground, you can use an equivalent amount of ready-made flax meal (ground flax seeds).


  1. Preheat the oven to 190 C/ 375 F (fan assisted). Blitz the flax seeds in a blender until fine, or optionally use ground flax seeds.
  2. Combine the ground almonds, flax, coconut flour, baking powder, chives, cheese (reserve some for topping), chives, salt and pepper in a mixing bowl. Combine.
  3. Chop the bacon fine and fry in a dry non stick pan for about 3 - 4 minutes until cooked. Allow to cool. Keto Cheese & Chive Scones
  4. In a cup, crack open the eggs and whisk with the almond milk using a fork.
  5. Add the dry ingredients to the wet (almond mix to egg mix) and fold to form a dough. Stir through the bacon. Keto Cheese & Chive Scones
  6. Roll the dough between two sheets of greaseproof paper until about 1 cm thick.
  7. Cut into small scone shapes using a cookie cutter (6 cm/ 2 ½ inch). Re-roll the ‘dough’ until all the mixture is used up. Keto Cheese & Chive Scones
  8. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes. After 10 minutes, sprinkle on the rest of the cheese and place back in the oven for the remaining 5 minutes. The scones can be stored in the fridge for up to a week. Keto Cheese & Chive Scones

These are great! Perfect accompaniment to soup. I omitted the bacon and added a little bit of Parmesan. Very tasty!

I am a vegetarian and  somewhat new to keto and your site.  I've been following it since the summer and have lost 11 lbs and several inches.  What would you recommend instead of the bacon?  thank you


I would be just guessing but you could try about 1/2 cup chopped sun-fried tomatoes or sliced olives.
