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.

This recipe is for 1 to 2 servings and can easily be doubled with successful results.
