In this article, we will provide a step-by-step guide on how to make these scones and include some helpful tips for baking and modifying the recipe.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 cup erythritol
  • 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • zest of 1 orange

Icing Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup coconut butter
  • 1 tbsp orange juice
  • liquid stevia to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs until frothy.
  3. Add the erythritol, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and orange zest to the mixing bowl and mix well.
  4. Add the coconut oil and heavy cream, and continue to mix.
  5. Gradually add the coconut flour to the mixing bowl, stirring continuously.
  6. Slowly pour in the almond milk, mixing until the dough becomes sticky and forms a ball.
  7. Place the ball of dough onto your lined baking sheet and flatten it into a round shape, about an inch and a half thick.
  8. Cut the dough into eight equal-sized wedges, but be sure not to cut all the way through.
  9. Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes or until slightly golden brown.
  10. Remove from the oven and let cool on the baking sheet for five minutes before transferring the scones to a cooling rack.

Making the Icing

  1. In a small mixing bowl, melt the coconut butter in the microwave for 15-20 seconds.
  2. Add the orange juice and liquid stevia to the melted coconut butter and mix well.
  3. Pour the icing over the cooled scones, and enjoy!

Tips

  • Baking powder and baking soda should be used carefully when making scones, as they are the leavening agents that give scones their texture. Too much of either can cause the scones to rise too quickly and then fall flat.
  • Stevia can be left out of the recipe for less sweetness or substituted with a different keto-friendly sweetener.
  • The nutrition breakdown for each scone with extra icing is 211.25 calories, 19.67g fats, 2.98g carbs, and 3.53g protein.

FAQs

  1. Can I substitute the coconut flour with almond flour?
    A: Unfortunately, we do not recommend substituting coconut flour with almond flour in this recipe. Coconut flour absorbs more liquid than almond flour, so the two are not interchangeable.

  2. Can I use whipping cream instead of heavy whipping cream?
    A: Yes, you can use regular whipping cream, but your scones may not be as rich and dense.

  3. How long do the scones last?
    A: Store the scones in an airtight container in the fridge for up to three days.

  4. Can I freeze the scones?
    A: Yes, you can freeze the scones for up to one month. Allow them to thaw at room temperature for a few hours before reheating.

  5. Can I make these scones vegan?
    A: Unfortunately, this recipe requires eggs, whipping cream, and coconut butter, making it difficult to make entirely vegan. However, you may be able to substitute the eggs with a vegan egg substitute and the whipping cream with a vegan alternative.
