Low Carb Cinnamon Orange Scones

Keto Recipes > Breakfast

When I was growing up in England, scones were a staple in my house. But, they didn’t have these fancy triangular shapes; rather, they were round, podgy pieces of dough that you cut in half and stick double cream and jam inside. I’ve become Americanized since though, and wanted to create something that most of the US folks have seen (and like). Triangles or not, scones are definitely a delicious pastry to enjoy with your morning coffee ­čÖé

I just have to make a confession to everyone and first say that you need to be careful with baking powder and baking soda! I had a huge fail on my first batch of these and definitely used baking soda instead of baking powder. I don’t know why, but it was the biggest mistake (and waste of ingredients) I’ve done so far while cooking recipes for the site. If you use baking soda, you’ll be met with something of a scone that had a bar of soap baked into it, so just make sure you keep your eyes peeled!

Anyway, once you use the baking powder, these scones turn out fantastic. They’re a touch dry and crumbly (like most traditional scones I see in the US), but they go great with coffee and some icing on top. They -are- quite sweet, so if you’re not the type to want excess sweetness in the morning, you can leave out the stevia from the recipe and that will put you at a good point to start from. If you do that, you can always add extra icing if you want the extra sweetness.

If you do some special twist on the icing, stick jam and cream inside, or just eat it warm out of the oven – let me know what you think! I love hearing people’s twists, getting new ideas, and of course – hearing whether you liked them or not!
