Ingredients For These Keto Pumpkin Scones

You will need only a few easy ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry. Here is a list of everything you will need:

For The Pumpkin Scones

Ingredients Keto Pumpkin Scones
  • Almond Flour & Coconut Flour – these are my favorite low-carb flour substitutes for baked goods.
  • Baking Powder – helps these scones rise and get super fluffy.
  • Brown Sweetener – feel free to use your favorite powdered sweeteners.
  • Eggs – help to bind everything together. Make sure that you use a room-temperature one to avoid eggy flavor.
  • Butter – you can also use room-temperature coconut oil.
  • Vanilla Extract – use a good quality one for a boost of flavor.
  • Pumpkin Puree – you can buy it, or you can choose to make it at home according to this recipe
  • Vanilla Extract – use a good quality one for a boost of flavor.
  • Spices – I used cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice. One of my favorite spice mixes that I use to make fall-season desserts. You can buy it or use my pumpkin pie spice recipe.
  • Xanthan Gum – helps the scones to hold their shape.

For The Sugar-Free Maple Glaze

Ingredients Keto Pumpkin Scones
  • Butter – you will need unsalted melted butter.
  • Heavy Cream – adds creaminess to the glaze.
  • Sweetener – feel free to use your favorite sweetener. Just make sure that it is powdered to ensure good mixing.
  • Vanilla Extract – use the best quality vanilla extract for an intense flavor.
  • Cinnamon – feel free to add less or more according to your taste.

How To Make These Keto Pumpkin Scones

These keto pumpkin scones are so easy to prepare that I choose to make them anytime I crave something sweet and quick to prepare. So here is everything you need to do:

  1. Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Prepare a baking pan with parchment paper.
  3. Add the wet ingredients to a bowl and mix until frothy.
  4. Now you can add the dry ingredients and mix until the dough is formed. 
  5. Let the dough sit for a few minutes.
  6. Make the triangle scones. The dough should be rolled into a ball and placed on the counter. Form the dough into an 8-inch circle and cut it into eight wedges of equal size using a sharp knife.
  7. Arrange the scones on the baking sheet and bake them in the oven for 25 minutes.
  8. Make the maple glaze and drizzle over the baked scones right before serving.

Tips For Making The Best Keto Pumpkin Scones

  • Feel free to experiment with extra mix-ins! Feel free to add some chocolate chips or chopped nuts to the batter.
  • Do not over-mix the scone dough.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What Are Scones?

With a flaky pastry texture and a biscuit, scones are a sweet treat from wheat flour, butter, whole milk, eggs, and sugar served with jam or clotted cream.

  • Are Almond Flour Pumpkin Scones Keto-Friendly?

Even if made with almond flour, not all pumpkin scones are keto since they are sweetened with regular sugar and contain other ingredients high in carbs.

This recipe, for example, is keto-friendly since it’s made with almond flour and coconut flour and sweetened with erythritol, making the scones low in carbs.
