Keto Blueberry Earl Grey Scones

Blueberry Earl Grey Scones

Hi there! I found this recipe from the bloggers Probably This and I made it Keto! Check out the full version here and my version below:

Serves 6-8 people

Scone Ingredients

  • 2 ½ cups almond flour
  • 1/3 cup stevia/erythritol/Swerve
  • 2 ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp xanthan gum
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground earl grey tea (1 teabag)
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 stick of butter (extra cold! Throw in freezer for at least 30 minutes prior)
  • ½ cup of unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • Zest of 1 orange
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries

Glaze Ingredients

  • 1 cup powdered Swerve
  • 2 tsp earl grey tea (2 bags)
  • 1 Tbsp unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/8 tsp orange extract
  • Pinch of salt

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Sift flour, sweetener, baking powder, xanthan gum, cinnamon, earl grey tea, and salt into large bowl. If you don’t have a sift, use whisk and combine. Use a grater and grate in the cold butter into the mixture (if you don’t have a grater like I somehow don’t, just cut into very small cubes). Use whisk like a potato masher to cut the butter into the flour until butter is pea sized.
  3. In measuring cup, combine milk, eggs, vanilla, and orange zest and whisk. Pour evenly over flour mixture and using a rubber spatula, mix until combined. Do not overmix. Gently fold in the blueberries.
  4. This will produce a VERY wet dough, don’t worry. Transfer the dough onto the sheet pan and form into a round disk.
  5. Bake in oven for 20 minutes until the top starts getting golden brown.
  6. While scones are baking, combine the glaze ingredients into bowl and combine. I added salt because the glaze is extra sweet. You can leave it out if you’d like. Thicker glaze add more sweetener, for thinner glaze add more milk.
  7. After 20 minutes, take out and using a pizza cutter or knife, cut the disk into 8 triangle shaped scones. Pull apart the scones to give some room between the pieces. Throw back into the oven and bake for another 5-10 minutes.
  8. Drizzle glaze on scones while hot. Serve and enjoy!
