I’ve been making these keto blueberry scones for years. Prior to my clean eating days, 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. So truth be told, I was missing them a bit when I went low carb years ago… which is why these keto scones were one of the first things I made. They are bursting with fresh berries (and topped with a berry glaze!) and so much easier to make than you might think. Not only are these almond flour scones keto, but they are just 4 grams net carbs and made with wholesome ingredients like almond and coconut flour.
Enjoy these low carb scones with your favorite coffee or tea and a dollop of keto lemon curd for a slow weekend morning or enjoy them throughout the week. No matter if it’s Saturday or Monday, my paleo scones are sure to be a hit. (These days, I love them with bulletproof coffee.)
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. 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.

How To Make Keto Scones
This recipe for keto scones takes just 30 minutes! Make the keto blueberry scones, turn on the coffee, and grab a book – it’s better than the coffee shop! Here’s how we make them:
- Mix dry ingredients. In a medium bowl, whisk together almond flour, coconut flour, Besti, sea salt, and baking powder.
- Mix wet ingredients. In a small bowl, whisk together coconut oil, almond milk, vanilla, and egg.
- Mix wet and dry ingredients. Fold the wet mixture into the dry until a dough forms – it should be pliable, but not crumbly or stiff.
TIP: If your dough is sticky, you can chill it in the fridge for about 20 minutes to make it easier to work with.
- Add blueberries. Fold in the blueberries. You can also experiment with other add-ins here, such as sugar-free dried cranberries or chocolate chips.
- Form the blueberry keto scones. Place the dough onto a lined pan and form a disk shape. Cut into 8 wedges and move them apart a bit so they aren’t touching.
- Make glaze for low carb scones. Puree coconut oil, powdered Besti, and blueberries in a blender until smooth. Pour through a fine mesh sieve to catch blueberry skins.
TIP: Make sure to use powdered sweetener for the glaze, to avoid a gritty texture.
- Top keto blueberry scone recipe with glaze. When the scones are done baking, drizzle glaze and spread evenly. Cool completely.
TIP: Don’t move the scones while they are still warm – they will fall apart. Let them cool completely to firm up. You can always reheat if you prefer a warm scone.
Are Scones Keto Friendly?
Traditional scones are made with flour and sugar, so are not keto. But these keto almond flour scones definitely are!
Unlike traditional ones, these are packed with protein, fiber, and healthy fats… and no sugar. That means they’ll keep you full for a while, without the blood sugar spike.
Low carb keto scones for all!
Can Scones Be Made With Almond Flour?
Yes, scones can be made with almond flour and this almond flour scones recipe will show you just how easy, healthy, and delicious it is!
In fact, almond flour is my preferred flour for making the best keto scones. It’s perfect for getting the right texture and flavor. I did add a little coconut flour to improve the texture.
Can I Use Only Coconut Flour?
Not with this same recipe, no. Coconut and almond flour are not interchangeable, and using only coconut flour would require too many other changes. I can’t recommend it without testing.
It’s on my list to make you a recipe for coconut flour scones, but in the meantime, try coconut flour blueberry muffins.
Can I Use Only Almond Flour?
Probably, yes. You’d need to replace the 1/4 cup coconut flour in the recipe with an additional 3/4 cup almond flour instead (yes, it’s a lot more to convert), and may need to add an additional 1/4 cup, if the dough is too runny after that.
Let me know how it goes for you if you try this.
How To Store Keto Blueberry Scones
Store these low carb keto scones in an airtight container for 3-4 days.
Can You Freeze Almond Flour Scones?
If you won’t eat them within 3-4 days, the almond flour blueberry scones should be frozen. Store them in a freezer bag in the freezer for 2-3 months. Let them thaw at room temperature and reheat in aa 350 degree F oven if you want to warm them up a bit.

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, Besti, 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).
