Ingredients

Instructions

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.
  • Bake for 18 to 22 minutes, until golden.
  • Cool completely on the pan to firm up. (Scones will fall apart if you move them before cooling.)

THERMOMIX® METHOD

  • Preheat the oven to 170℃ (350°F). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Place coconut oil into mixing bowl and melt 1 minute/80℃/speed 1 if required.
  • Add orange zest, vanilla, and egg to mixer bowl and mix 3 sec/speed 4.
  • Add almond flour, erythritol, baking powder, and sea salt to mixing bowl and combine 10 sec/speed 4.
  • Pour dough into a large bowl and press in cranberries. Follow from Step 6 above.

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.
