When I first started baking, one aspect of the process that was always fascinating to me was how the same combination of ingredients could result in completely different products, depending on what you do with them. For example, you can use the same ingredients to make muffins, scones, pancakes, cookies, biscotti, or even a cake! It’s just a matter of ratios, oven temperature, and how you shape the batter or dough. These easy blueberry scones are the epitome of that. It’s my favorite paleo low carb scones recipe!
Being a scientist at heart, I love to experiment and figure out how things work, so it’s truly rewarding for me to see how changing different variables transforms the end result. Even given the same ingredients, you can make the mixture dense or runny, thick or thin, enclosed or out in the open, split into small portions or one large one, and so on. That doesn’t even begin to cover the possibilities that emerge when you begin swapping ingredients.
So many options!
Prior to my clean eating days, I always loved blueberry scones from coffee shops. Curling up with a hot latte, a crumbly scone, and
a good book my laptop (who am I kidding?) was the perfect way to spend a morning off. Or an afternoon or evening. Give me coffee and scones any time of day, really.
I had assumed that an easy blueberry scones recipe would be difficult to make and guaranteed to be unhealthy. How could something so delicious be any other way? It turns out, I was wrong about both.Making low carb scones is actually very similar to make muffins, but the batter/dough is a little thicker, and instead of pouring it into muffin cups, you just shape it into a disk and cut into wedges prior to baking.

And you get easy blueberry scones!
Blueberry scones have always been my favorite. The best part is the fresh blueberries that have burst ever so slightly.
I’m actually so excited about blueberry season that my paleo low carb scones are double blueberry scones. They are packed with juicy blueberries inside and have a blueberry glaze on top!
You can omit the glaze if you want to make these even faster. Personally, I highly recommend including it. The blueberry glaze really makes these sugar-free scones extra special.
If you’re looking to make keto scones around the fall season, try low carb pumpkin scones from All Day I Dream About Food.
This sugar-free low carb scones recipe is a great staple to make over the weekend and enjoy for breakfast throughout the week. They taste like a treat, but unlike traditional scones, they are packed with protein, fiber, and healthy fats. That means they’ll keep you full for a while, without the blood sugar spike.
Who needs the carbs, anyway?

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (177 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a medium bowl, combine almond flour, coconut flour, erythritol, sea salt, and baking powder.
- In a small bowl, whisk together coconut oil, almond milk, vanilla extract, and egg. Fold the wet mixture into the dry until a dough forms. (The dough should be pliable but not crumbly or stiff; add a little more almond milk, a teaspoon at a time, if it's dry.) Fold the blueberries into the dough.
Place the dough onto the lined pan and form a disk shape, about 1in (2.5 cm) thick. Cut into 8 wedges (like a pie or pizza). Move the pieces about 1 in (2.5 cm) apart. Bake for about 18-22 minutes, until golden.
- Meanwhile, prepare the glaze. Puree the glaze ingredients in a blender. Pour through a fine mesh sieve to catch (and discard) the blueberry skins. When the scones are done baking, drizzle the glaze over them and spread evenly. Cool completely (scones and glaze will firm up as they cool).
