Low Carb Berry Scones Recipe (1)

I have never made scones before. I’m not sure if I mentioned this but I am a not a good baker. I feel like I’m a pretty good cook but not a baker. So when I saw this recipe for low carb berry scones and I had all the ingredients I thought I’d give it a try. While I’m not much of a fan of sweet breakfasts, these berry scones are just sweet enough and very filling.

I also wanted to have a gluten-free breakfast item for my husband to eat. He loves his blueberry bagel in the morning and I’m trying to get him away from that after reading Grain Brain and Wheat Belly. So this was an attempt to make something he would like. And he did. He said he would definitely eat this for breakfast so I am happy. 🙂

It’s very easy to whip up and I’m sure you could freeze them but since it only makes 6 scones, they go fast. It’s adapted from Healthy Living How To’s Cranberry Drop Scones. All I did was substitute frozen berries instead of the cranberries and eliminated the cinnamon. Try them out and let me know how you like them.

    Can I eliminate the Splenda and make without any Splenda or sugar. I try to stay away from both sugar and sugar substitute like Splenda. Do you think it would be too bitter?


    • Denise

      Hi Denise, It might be a bit sour as berries to me usually are. Maybe if you have very ripe berries it could work. Do you use stevia? That might work. Or use a different fruit that is sweeter like a ripe peach. Hope that helps!


  2. Hannah

    Is there an alternative to coconut flour? Thanks!


    • Denise

      Hi Hannah, Here is a scone recipe that uses almond flour. You can just use the berries instead of the cranberries and orange. Unfortunately you cannot substitute almond flour 1 to 1 with coconut flour. You use less coconut flour and it needs more liquid. So I would just follow this recipe and substitute the fruit. Good luck!

    Do the berries need to be thawed?


    • Denise

      Yes they should be thawed Megan. Let me know if you have any other questions!

      68 cals / 3.7g fat / 15.4g carbs / 11.1g fiber / 3.5g protein = 4.3g net carbs
      And I used Swerve as the sweetener. I hope that helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
