If you’re following a ketogenic diet, you know that finding delicious and satisfying baked goods can be a challenge. Traditional scones are often loaded with refined carbs and sugars, making them off-limits for those watching their carb intake. However, with a few simple tweaks, you can enjoy making this scones recipe while keeping your keto diet on track.

The secret ingredient to making a scone moist is cream cheese! Cream cheese adds moisture and a touch of richness to these keto-friendly treats. Whether you enjoy them for breakfast, as an afternoon snack, or as a guilt-free dessert, these keto scones with cream cheese are sure to become a new favourite.

The Benefits of Matcha

Matcha has been gaining popularity in recent years, and for good reason. This finely ground powder is made from high-quality green tea leaves that are shaded from the sun during the final weeks of growth. This process enhances the tea’s natural sweetness and boosts its nutrient content.

Matcha is packed with antioxidants, including the powerful compound epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), which has been linked to numerous health benefits. Some of the key advantages of incorporating matcha into your diet include:

  1. Increased Energy and Focus: Matcha contains caffeine, but it also contains L-theanine, an amino acid that helps to promote a calm, focused state of mind. This combination can provide a gentle, sustained energy boost without the jitters often associated with coffee.
  2. Improved Metabolism: Studies have shown that the catechins in matcha may help to boost metabolism and aid in fat burning, making it a great addition to a keto diet.
  3. Enhanced Cognitive Function: The antioxidants and L-theanine in matcha have been linked to improved memory, concentration, and overall brain health.
  4. Reduced Stress and Anxiety: The calming effects of L-theanine can help to counteract the potential stress-inducing properties of caffeine, making matcha a great choice for those looking to manage anxiety and promote relaxation.

By incorporating matcha into this keto scones recipe, you’ll not only be enjoying a delicious treat, but you’ll also be reaping the numerous health benefits that this superfood has to offer.

Now, let’s dive into the recipe for these mouthwatering Keto Strawberry Matcha Scones. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 ¼ cups almond flour
  • ¼ cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup Erythritol or Monk Fruit Sweetener
  • 2 tsps baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon himalayan salt
  • 1 tbsp of Sipology Strawberry Matcha
  • 1/2 cup cream cheese, softened cut into small pieces
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 4 tablespoon heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup diced fresh strawberries 

Keto Glaze

  • 2 tbsp powdered Erythritol sweetener
  • 3 tbsp heavy whipping cream

How to make keto scones

Preheat the oven to 325° F then add parchment paper or silicone baking mat on a baking sheet.

Pin

In a large mixing bowl, combine the almond flour, Erythritol sweetener, coconut flour, salt, strawberry matcha, and baking powder and whisk until well blended.

To the bowl, add the cream cheese in small pieces and use a fork or a pastry cutter to blend until it resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in the egg, vanilla extract, and whipping cream, and stir just until a dough begins to form. Be careful not to overmix.

Pin

Gently fold the diced strawberries into the scone dough, being careful not to crush them. Grab the dough and transfer to the baking sheet with parchment paper. Pat into a 7 inch circle about 3/4-inch thick and then use a knife to cut the dough into 8 even wedges.

Pin

Using a spatula carefully transfer the scone wedges to the prepared baking sheet, spacing them about 2 inches apart. Remove each wedge and add on the baking sheet without them touching each other.

Pin

Bake 25 to 30 minutes, until golden brown and just firm to the touch. Remove the scones from the oven and let them cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely. Serve the Keto Strawberry Matcha Scones warm or at room temperature, and enjoy!

Glaze

  • In a bowl, add the powdered sweetener and the heavy cream and whisk until it’s well combined.
  • If you want more of a drizzle, you can add a few drops of water at a time until a glazing consistency is achieved.
  • Drizzle the keto glaze over the cooled scones.
