🔪 How to Make Keto Scones
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Add the almond flour, oat fiber, pumpkin pie spice and baking powder into a mixing bowl and whisk until combined.
Tip: Whisking not only combines the dry ingredients, but also helps break up any lumps.
In a separate bowl, mix together the monk fruit/allulose, eggs, butter, vanilla and pumpkin puree.
Add in the dry ingredients and mix with a silicone spatula, just until combined.
Turn the dough out onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper forming a disc about 1 inch thick and 6 inches in diameter.
Tip: Forming a round disk helps to roll out the dough into the perfect shape.
Cut the disc into 8 wedges (like a pizza), then gently separate the slices about an inch apart.
Bake for 18-20 minutes or until the tops are slightly golden, then set aside to cool.
Mix together the icing ingredients, adding just enough heavy cream to get a consistency that allows you to drizzle it.
Tip: Start by adding part of the cream, whisk, then add more if needed.
Once the almond flour pumpkin scones have cooled completely, drizzle the icing over the tops and serve.
Can I Eat Pumpkin in Keto Diet?
You sure can and it's good for you too! Pumpkin is a great source for vitamins A and C, E, iron folate and beta-carotene, it's low carb and high in fiber! It's the perfect low carb addition to this gluten-free pumpkin scone recipe.
Pumpkin may be slightly higher in carbs than some other fruits, there are still only 7 net carbs in an entire cup of fresh pumpkin. This whole recipe only uses ½ cup and there are 8 servings, making the carb impact minimal.
Does Almond Flour Affect Ketosis?
Almond flour is high in fat, low in carbs, and moderate in protein, which should not have an impact on Ketosis. It's a great source of omega-3 fatty acids, fiber and is 100% Keto approved.
Low Carb Pumpkin Scones Add-ins and Variations:
- Icing: Swap out the vanilla in the icing with a little maple syrup or almond extract.
- Nuts: Add a little crunch to your pumpkin spice scone recipe with finely chopped pecan or walnuts.
- Citrus: Orange zest goes really well with pumpkin. You can add a little of the juice or use some orange extract in the icing if you'd like more orange flavor.
- Chocolate Chips: Who doesn't love a pumpkin chocolate chip flavor combo! Add about ⅓ cup sugar-free chocolate chips to the sugar free scones batter. You could also add white chocolate chips to make them tasty pumpkin white chocolate scones.
Why Didn't My Pumpkin Scones Rise?
By nature, these pumpkin scones with almond flour will not rise as high as other forms of pastries like cupcakes or muffins. The dough should rise just enough to give the scones a slightly dense but moist texture.
If your dough does not rise at all, then check the expiration date on your baking powder. That's the number one cause of scone dough not rising.
