Best Keto Almond Flour Scones

These are the Best Keto Almond Flour Scones, in my opinion, they are buttery, soft and with crumb edges. It is very easy to make and calls for only 6 ingredients. Serve it with clotted cream and strawberry jam for a perfect traditional English afternoon tea. These scones are with fewer carbs and sugar, but if you are up for the traditional scones recipe, you can try my Basic Scones.

Before I went on a Keto lifestyle over a year ago, I used to love English scones – both traditional and fun ways of making them. They are slightly crumbly, buttery and very comforting to eat. My most favorite scones I’ve made as of today is the Caramilk Scones drizzled with my Homemade Salted Caramel Sauce. I terribly missed it, and that’s why I need to create a recipe for scones that is Keto-friendly.

Are these Scones Keto-Friendly?

These scones are made with almond flour which is considered to be one of the most used flour in Keto recipes because it is low in carbs.

I chose almond flour for this recipe because coconut flour tends to get dry. I want my scones to be moist and soft. Even better, almond flour has a slightly nutty taste, sweet, and is gluten-free.

What’s the Difference between English Scones and American Scones?

I have learned that English Scones are more traditional. It is made to be eaten with a filling, usually with butter and jam. In this recipe, I used clotted cream or whipped cream and topped with Natvia sugar-free strawberry jam.

While American Scones are often topped with a sweet glaze and studded with blueberries, chocolate chips, and more. Check out this Blueberry Lemon Scones I made in the past.

How to Make the Best Keto Almond Flour Scones?

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F or 180 degrees C. Then in a medium bowl, combine all the dry ingredients – almond flour, sweeter, and baking powder. In a separate bowl, mix the wet ingredients – melted butter, lemon zest, vanilla and egg. At this point, you can combine the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients. Stir well until a dough forms. You can also use an electric hand mixer. Form a dough ball and place it onto a baking pan lined with parchment paper. Flatten into a disc shape with a rolling pin, about an inch thick. Using a cookie cutter, cut out 5-6 scones. Place them apart from each other. Then brush the tops with beaten egg. Bake the scones for 18-22 minutes until golden. Let cool completely in the baking pan. These scones may break when hot, but they firm up once they are cooled down.

ANZAC Cookies (Biscuits)

What are ANZAC Cookies (Biscuits)? They were originated around WWII – ANZAC which stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. These cookies, having no eggs in them (to lasts longer), were sent to soldiers and/or also to eat at home and raise funds to war.

 These ANZAC cookies are crunchy and totally scrumptious! Some recipes don’t have desiccated coconuts in them, but my family loves the texture and the taste of the coconuts with oats. It’s a perfect grab and go for breakfast or snacks.   


ANZAC Cookies (Biscuits) Recipe

INGREDIENTS:

2 cups rolled oats  

1/2 cup sugar  

1 cup desiccated coconut  

1 cup self-raising flour  

150 grams butter, melted  

1 tablespoon golden syrup or honey  

2 tablespoons water (or more if the dough is dry)

How to Make ANZAC Cookies (Biscuits)?

INSTRUCTIONS:

1. Preheat oven to 160 degrees C.  

2. In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients; oats, sugar, desiccated coconut and flour.  

3. Add melted butter, syrup and mix again into a crumble. Then pour in the water and bring it all together. Add a tablespoon of water if it’s still dry.  

4. Spoon out a portion into your palm and roll it into a ball, then place onto a tray. Make 6-8 balls to fill in the tray with spaces in between them. Flatten each ball with your hand or fork.

NOTES:

  • Don’t forget to squish down your dough balls before baking, otherwise, you will end up with baked balls.
  • If the mixture is dry, add a teaspoon of water, mix again and repeat and until you reach the right consistency.
  • If you don’t have sugar on hand, you can replace it with brown sugar or raw sugar.
  • If you prefer filling to be more compact and sticky, add 1 tablespoon flour dissolved in ¼ cup milk after the liquid has been absorbed.
  • You can dip the cooked cookies (biscuits) into melted chocolate for added yumminess!
