Low Carb Cranberry Orange Scones

A scone is a British baked good, usually made of wheat, or oatmeal with baking powder as a leavening agent and baked on sheet pans. A scone is often slightly sweetened and occasionally glazed with egg wash.

These scones I made low carb when I subbed the wheat flour for part coconut and part almond flour. This lends to a tender crumb that does not break into a million crumbs when you take a bite🤣

Now this recipe is ultra versatile as you can swap out extracts and swap out additions!

It is important to follow the steps as they are meant to be the way they are so you achieve the same results.

Here is a picture after mixing and letting it rest 10 minutes.

Here is a picture after patting into shape and working in the cranberries.

Here it is after cutting.

Here they are on the pan.

I then brushed the tops with a beaten egg, then sprinkled with additional monkfruit sweetener.

    These sound perfect. Could I use orange zest in place of the orange extract? I am not sure if I can find orange extract easily today. :). Thanks for the awesome recipe!

    1. You need the extra moisture. Sub in more vanilla and use 1 tbsp orange zest. Thank you for visiting my site!! Would love to know how it turns out!

    I want to print out the recipe but I don’t see “print copy” anywhere. Am I missing it somehow?

    1. No, it is on my list of upgrades this next year! Currently you would need to copy then paste in word then print.

    Are use powdered swerve, is it the same amount used as the powdered Stevia?

    1. I use the stevia in the dough, just a little. The sweetness of stevia is stronger than swerve confectioners(powdered swerve)
      I use powdered swerve, a.k.a. confectioners swerve, in the drizzle topping. Hope this helps!

    If you can’t find frozen cranberries could you use fresh?

    1. You can put the fresh cranberries in the freezer for 20 minutes. Being frozen helps suspend them in the dough so theybdo not all sink to the bottom! Thank you for visiting and your comment.
