Keto Cinnamon Orange Scones

In 2006 my cousin Polly and I traveled to Ireland from New York to attend a U2 concert. We stayed in Malahide, a quaint seaside town near Dublin.

We both fondly remember eating the most amazing scones, served with clotted cream & strawberry jam at the most lovely cafe in town.

There are only six in the picture because two went missing before I had the chance to photograph them!

Ingredients:

3 cups almond flour

1 tbsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 cup low carb sweetener (1/4 tsp pure monk fruit)

1/2 tbsp cinnamon

1 tbsp vanilla

1 tbsp orange zest

1 tsp orange extract

1/4 cup melted butter

1 tbsp heavy cream

2 eggs

for the glaze:

2 tbsp butter

1/4 cup cream cheese

2 tbsp sweetener

Directions:

In one bowl mix your dry ingredients to fully combine. In a second bowl, whisk the wet ingredients. Mix them both together with a wooden spoon until you form a dough.

I sprinkled a little bit more of the almond flour onto a board to help me shape the dough. Cut into 8 wedges & place on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake at 350 till golden brown.

Makes 8 scones. You can cut them smaller if you like.

To make the glaze, in a small pot melt the butter and cream cheese together, whisking them till completely combined and smooth. Add in your sweetener.

Spoon on the glaze while it is warm & allow it to cool. Serve with some sugar free jam!

I stored them in the fridge because of the cream cheese glaze so that they would not spoil. The next day when I wanted another one, I loosely wrapped it in parchment and reheated it in the oven for a few minutes. Perfect!
