KETO CRANBERRY ORANGE SCONES INGREDIENTS

The ingredients in these very delicious keto cranberry scones can all be found in the supermarket. I will say this is the first time I have tried cranberries this way and to say I am a fan is an understatement. The cranberries really make this low carb scone recipe shine. They are a little tart and a little sweet and paired with the orange is a perfect food marriage.

Here is what you will need. Surprisingly this a dairy free keto scone recipe. No butter, no cream or cheese that you find in lots of keto scone recipes.

  • 2 cups almond flour or meal – I use blanched almond meal
  • 1/3 cup erythritol
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder – forever a fan of Bobs Red Mill
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil melted
  • 2 tablespoons orange zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup cranberries fresh or frozen – I use frozen (from Woolworths) Have you tried our super tasty Low Carb Cranberry Sauce?

HOW TO MAKE LOW CARB SCONES

The cranberry orange scones are pretty simple to make. I have included Maya’s original method, but also a Thermomix Keto Scone method as well for our thermie fans.

CONVENTIONAL METHOD

  • Preheat the oven to 170℃ (350°F). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the almond flour, erythritol, baking powder, and sea salt.

  • In a small bowl, whisk together the melted coconut oil, orange zest, vanilla, and egg.

  • Stir the wet mixture into the almond flour mixture, pressing with a spoon or spatula, until a uniform dough forms. (The dough should be pliable and dense, but not crumbly; add a little more coconut oil, a teaspoon at a time, if it’s very dry.)

  • Stir and press the cranberries into the dough.

  • Place the dough onto the lined pan and form a disc shape, about 2-3 cm thick and 15 -18 cm in diameter. Cut into 8 wedges, like a pie or pizza. Move the pieces about 2-3 cm apart to form the scones.

Notes

This recipe is from The Wholesome Yum Easy Keto Cookbook with permission from the author. While the book was provided to me and I am not paid in any way for this review or this recipe.
Storage
Store in the fridge for up to 4 days (for best quality). Alternatively, the scones can be frozen for up to 2 months.
If using frozen cranberries (I got mine at Woolworths) add them while frozen and mix quickly. You can see mine did not bleed at all.
Alternative serving suggestion. Drizzle with a little keto chocolate or a lemon glaze for variation.

    I love scones so I am looking forward to trying this out. Do you think that monk fruit would work as a substitute?
