These Low Carb Keto Chocolate Chip scones are one of my go-to recipes!

Ingredients in Low Carb Keto Chocolate Chip Scones

  • Almond & Coconut Flour – I use the Kirkland Costco brand of almond flour (I buy it in bulk on Amazon or at Costco itself occasionally) and this brand of coconut flour for this recipe. As I’ve noted in many of my past recipes, the brand of almond and coconut flour can affect the final outcome of the recipe because absorbency can vary depending on how the flour has been processed.
  • Powdered/Granular Monkfruit Erythritol Sweetener  –   I use the SoNourished brand for both granular and powdered sweetener and love it! The powdered is the best option for no-bake goods and desserts where you want a very smooth final product. But it bakes well in any recipe. **UPDATE** lately I’ve switched over to THIS brand of powdered sweetener because of tr
  • Xanthan gum – This is used to create a batter more similar to that of white flour. It helps give keto baked goods a chewier dough-like texture.

Tools I used to Make Low Carb Keto Chocolate Chip Scones

  • Low Carb Substitution Guide – This is totally optional but if you like my recipes, I now have a $5 guide available with all of the substitutions I use to create every recipe on my site. You can use this to convert old traditional recipes and create new keto recipes! You can purchase it here and/or read more if you are interested. 🙂 I appreciate your support so much guys!
  • Nutritional Food Scale – AKA my best friend. This little buddy has been with me for over 4 years and never fails. Perfect measurements and only needs the batteries replaced maybe once a year!

Can I Replace Coconut Flour with Almond Flour or Vice Versa?

I know in many of my recipes I give substitutions but unfortunately in this recipe I would strongly recommend using both coconut and almond flour. I experimented a lot with the different flour ratios to end up with this great dough!

Tips For Making Low Carb Keto Chocolate Chip Scones

  • Make sure your butter is cold and that you just mix enough for everything to come together. 
  • You can also refrigerate the dough after adding the butter for 10-15mins to make sure everything stays chilled. 
  • When slicing the scones, feel free to separate them before baking. I keep mine in a circle because I like the look when they come out of the oven but you definitely don't have to keep them in that formation!
  • To make these scone “drier” more like traditional scones, just add a couple extra tablespoons of coconut flour to the batter.
