Are scones keto friendly?
Traditionally scones are made with wheat flour and sugar but not these ones! Follow this recipe and you can eat scones on a keto diet.
Each serving of scone has only 5 g net carb. That is a very moderate amount and leaves plenty of room to reach the upper limit of 20-30 grams daily of net carbs with other foods.

Keto scones with Coconut and Almond Flour
Almond flour and coconut flour are some of the best keto flours to use. They are naturally gluten and grain-free making them good options for those with gluten intolerance or on a THM, paleo, or keto diet.
Almond flour is made from finely ground, blanched almonds. I buy my almond flour in bulk from Wildly Organic.
Coconut flour is made from finely ground, dried coconut meat. I also buy my coconut flour in bulk from Wildly Organic.
Coconut four tastes great and holds the recipe together well but is a heavy flour and absorbs a lot of liquid. For this reason, I use the two together. Almond flour is light and flaky which brings balance to the texture.
Are blueberries ok on keto?
Many berries are allowed on a keto diet. In general, berries are fruits with the lowest carb count. For some, berries have many health-promoting benefits.
According to FatSecret 1 cup of blueberries has 83 calories. There are 0.5 grams of fat, 21 g carbohydrate, 3.5 g fiber, 17.5 g net carb, and 1 g protein.
We use a full cup of blueberries in this dairy free keto scone recipe. The carbs are divided by 8 scones (8 servings), giving each one only about 2.5 g carbs from blueberries per piece. Overall, it’s a very minimal amount.
Learn the best way to bake with frozen blueberries and you’ll never have blue scones or muffins again! If you choose frozen berries, bake for the full 30 minutes. Check them and allow up to 10 extra minutes if they are not fully golden brown.
Can blueberry scones be dairy free?
Most low carb, paleo recipes have simple adjustments such as using coconut oil instead of butter and coconut cream instead of heavy cream to make them fully dairy free.
You don’t have to think about any of that here because this keto blueberry scone recipe is already made with dairy free ingredients. You can enjoy this recipe just as it is without any substitutions.
How to Make Low Carb Scones with Blueberries
This recipe takes just 30 minutes and a few simple kitchen tools.
Always start a baking recipe by preheating the oven to 350°F (175°C)
Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl.
Mix the wet ingredient in a bowl (reserve the berries).
Fold the wet bowl into the dry bowl.
Gently stir in the blueberries.
Shape the scones either as individual discs on a baking sheet or form the dough in a circle and divide into 8 sections. Wiggle the knife side to side to make space between each scone so they don’t stick to each other while baking.
Sprinkle the tops with extra sweetener if you want. This gives a nice texture to the tops. Press the sweetener down gently to stick into the dough.
Bake for 20-30 minutes. Watch for browning on the top and edges. This is your cue for when they are done.
Let the scones cool completely before moving and serving. They will turn crumbly and fall apart if you move them too soon. Almond flour scones firm up as they cool so you can move them easily later on.
Just like that, you have breakfast ready in 30 minutes max. Take a look at Low-Carb 30 Minute Meals for more family-friendly inspiration.
How to Store Keto Blueberry Scones
Store gluten free, low carb scones in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-5 days after you make them. Rewarm them in the oven before serving if you want to recreate the oven-fresh feeling.
Can I freeze almond flour scones?
You can definitely freeze these, assuming there are any left over. They usually go pretty fast.
Put them in a heavy-duty freezer bag, squeeze out the air and keep in the freezer for up to 3 months. Defrost at room temperature before eating.
I thaw them in the freezer bag on a plate to avoid ice crystals melting on the countertop.
