Equipment

  • Baking Tray

Ingredients
  

  • 2 cups almond flour finely ground
  • ¼ cup Natvia sweetener or sweetener of your choice
  • 1 ½ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ cup butter melted, unsalted
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • zest of lemon
  • 1 large egg beaten, for egg wash

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F or 180°C.
  • In a medium bowl, combine almond flour, sweetener, and baking powder.
  • In a separate bowl, mix the wet ingredients - melted butter, lemon zest, vanilla, and egg.
  • Now, combine the wet ingredients to 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 1 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 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.

Notes

  • 1 scone without filling is approximately 4.9 net carbs. 
  • Add a pinch of salt if you like.
  • Add 1/2 tsp of xanthum gum if you prefer a stronger crumb.
  • The scones in the images are made with finely ground almonds, but if you are using regular ground almond flour, add 1/4 cup to the mixture. 
  • In these images, I added whipped cream and Natvia strawberry jam.
