Low-carb blueberry scones are a nice transition recipe as a means of introducing other nonketo dieters into the world of delicious ketogenic foods. The blend of almond and coconut flour is an gluten-free and grain-free base for the eggs, coconut oil and blueberries.
With only two bowls, a spoon, and a baking sheet, this recipe couldn’t be simpler. Like many of my recipes from The Ultimate Guide to Low-Carb Baking, this procedure follows the easy process of mixing all the wet ingredients in one bowl and they dry ingredients in another. Combine the two together, fold in the berries and you have yourself some lovely low-carb blueberry scones after just 30 minutes of bake time.
The tartness of our blueberries gave a great flavor and inspired me to add some lemon or lime zest in the next batch.
Fresh v Frozen Blueberries?
You can use either. If the berries are still frozen when you mix them into the batter, this may affect the baking time. Frozen berries might increase the baking time by 5 to 10 minutes. Tristan and I go back and forth on this question. He is convinced he can tell a difference with the frozen and prefers fresh, but for me, it isn’t so clear. I’m fine either way. A strategy I do employ is to thaw the frozen blueberries before baking, this brings us to a happy middle ground where I get to tap in to my frozen stash of summer blueberries and he gets to enjoy delicious scones. Win, win.
Blue, Black and Red
I’m a fan of consuming local, seasonal produce. The blueberries can be replaced with other berries of your choice. Blackberries, red raspberries or strawberries, or any other local specimen should work fine with this recipe. Bonus points if you forage the berries yourself! We’ve made strawberry and strawberry/blueberry scones.
We’ll Sugar-Coat for it You
And we can by using a keto-approved low glycimic, zero calorie sweetener called Lakanto. It is a special blend of erythritol and monk fruit extract. For us, the monk fruit extract brings added nutritional benefits and value to the erythritol. We purchase directly from Lakanto’s store. In this recipe, we use their “golden” which is a brown sugar sub, you could also use the “classic” version or just plain erythritol- whatever works best for you!

It was Tristan’s idea to add a finishing coat of the sugar-free sweetener over the top of the unbaked scones. The final result has a crunchy “sugar” topping.
