Keto Coconut Flour Blueberry Scones Recipe

Ah, Keto Coconut Flour Blueberry Scones…

I know what you're thinking… WHY COCONUT FLOUR

Typically I'm the preacher for all things almond flour with just small amount of coconut flour added for texture purposes..

Seriously, just see my last youtube video.

BUT as I mention in the video. Sometimes there are exceptions in the keto baking world and this keto scone recipe just happens to be one of them.

The reason I prefer to make my low carb scones with coconut flour as the main ingredient instead of almond flour is purely because coconut flour lends itself better to traditional scone texture.

It creates this perfect soft, yet slightly crumbly scone rather than a more granular, cake-like scone as I've experience when using almond flour.

Coconut flour also absorbs high amounts of liquid meaning we don't need to use as much total flour (which is always a money-saving and calorie-saving win in my books!)

I know your next big question may be.. “Well, do they taste like coconut?”

And the answer is no! These do not have any sort of strong coconut flavour. You could serve these to a coconut hater and I promise they'd never even know it contains coconut flour. This is because the high amounts of butter, cream and sour cream in scones help to mask any hints of coconut flavour. All you get is buttery sweet goodness in every bite. 

Plus, we add some ripe blueberries to these scones, which add that perfect pop of tangy flavour throughout.

Overall, these low carb blueberry scones are one of my favourite keto scone recipes so far besides my very old original Low Carb Cheddar Bacon Onion Scones I made years ago.  

If you are looking for an easy keto breakfast that is fun and tasty and sure to impress even the pickiest of eaters, this blueberry scone recipe is for you!

Ingredients In Easy Keto Coconut Flour Blueberry 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 Monkfruit Erythritol Sweetener  –   I use the Lakanto brand for both granular sweetener 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. I also used the powdered in this recipe because it works great in baked goods but ALSO creates perfect frosting every time!
  • Xanthan gum – This is used to create a batter more similar to that of white flour. It helps give the scones a better, less crumbly texture. Try adding 1/2 tsp ground psyllium husks or 1 tbsp cornstarch at least if you are not using xanthan gum.
  • Heavy Cream – You can sub this with almond milk, light coconut milk or full fat coconut milk. Though I do recommend heavy cream or full fat coconut milk for best flavour.
  • Butter – Try vegan butter for a dairy free option.
  • Sour Cream – You can also sub full fat greek yogurt.

Tips For Making Keto Coconut Flour Blueberry Scones

  • If you find your scone dough is too soft, add an extra 1-2 tbsp coconut flour. It should be quite dry but just moist enough to hold together when pressed firmly into a shape. 
  • This recipe is great with some lemon added. Add some lemon zest and a small amount of lemon to the dough in place of a bit of the heavy cream/vinegar. You can also add lemon juice/zest to the glaze.
  • Don't like blueberries? Try my Keto Raspberry Almond Scones or Low Carb Keto Chocolate Chip Scones.
  • You can also use full fat greek yogurt in place of sour cream.
  • If you don't have xanthan gum, you can still make this recipe, but your scones may be a quite a bit more crumbly. Try adding 1/2 tsp ground psyllium husks or 1 tbsp cornstarch at least if you are not using xanthan gum.
  • To lighten the calories, you can make these with light coconut milk or almond milk. For dairy free you can use full fat coconut milk.
