Blueberry Lemon Scones | Low Carb | Gluten-Free | Keto
Updated: Jan 9, 2019
How about a delicious guilt-free Blueberry Lemon Scone with your morning coffee or tea? These scones are are bursting with juicy fresh blueberries and just the right amount of lemon, making a wonderful combination of sweet and tangy in every bite.
The base of this recipe is made with almond flour and coconut flour. making them gluten-free, low carb, and keto friendly. Flour-less baking is challenging so there is a lot of trial and error in finding the right baked good. I personally find this basis scone receip to be very close to a 'real' scone. This recipe is quick, easy and versatile. Use this recipe to make other scone variations, such as strawberry, raspberry, peach, and even a savory version by adding herbs and cheese (and omitting the sweetener).
These scones are best served after they've had time to cool. They are even better the next day after all the flavors have melded.
