Keto Blueberry Scones
Scones scream brunch and relaxing weekends to me! I'm all about a great cup of coffee and a perfectly tender, slightly sweet but not too sweet, freshly baked, warm scone with a bit of butter over the top once out of the oven! If you're into decadent breakfasts like this, you are going to drool over these keto blueberry scones. Once you make these nut free, keto scones, you will never feel like you're missing out on anything from your previous high carb days!
Sesame flour versus Almond Flour
Creating keto recipes that are also nut free, has been a long time quest since we discovered my youngest had a peanut and tree nut allergy. Using coconut flour works well in many recipes but is difficult to swap for those who still want to use almond flour instead. Often only ¼ cup coconut flour will equal 1 cup almond flour and you also need to adjust eggs and liquids to make it work. But once I started using sesame flour, it opened up a whole new world of possibilities with my keto recipes. Often sesame and almond flours can be equally swapped without having to increase or change out eggs and liquids. You can also use sunflower seed flour but the only trouble with that is when working with a recipes that requires baking powder and baking soda, it will cause a chemical reaction due to the natural chlorophyll in the sunflower seeds and can produce a green tint to you baked goods. I prefer sesame and this keto scone is the perfect texture. This recipe was adapted from my Vanilla Bean Scones from my cookbook Naturally Keto.
Tools to Make Keto Scones
Food Processor- This processor makes it quick and easy to combine and cut the cold butter quickly into the batter for these tasty keto scones.
Baking Sheet Pan- A large baking sheet is best for this keto scone recipe so have enough room to separate the triangles when they bake.
Mixing Bowl- After using the processor it's best to mix in the blueberries by hand so you don't mash them as the processor would do.
Pizza Cutter- Greasing your pizza cutter helps to easily slice the keto scones into triangles.
Spatula- Lift each scone away from each other using this flat square spatula. Grease it as well for easy lifting and no sticking!
