LOW CARB & SUGAR FREE DEVONSHIRE SCONES

A perfectly keto-friendly version of the British quintessential tea-time treat. Healthy but just as delicious as its famous high-carb counterpart.

Ingredients

  • 40g lupin flour
  • 55g fine almond flour
  • 40g whey protein isolate
  • 1 tsp xanthan gum
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 50g allulose
  • a pinch of fine Himalayan pink salt
  • 40g unsalted butter (cubed)
  • 65g double cream
  • 65g water
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • fine coconut flour for dusting
  • (optional) a little milk of your choice (or cream+water) for glazing

Instructions

  1. mix dry ingredients, then add cubed butter and rub it between your fingers to create fine crumbs.
  2. stir double cream, water and vanilla extract together, and warm it all up a little (must be lukewarm, not hot).
  3. create a well in the middle of the dry ingredients and pour in the liquid; combine using a fork first, then a spoon.
  4. pre-heat oven to 160°C static.
  5. wearing food-safe disposable gloves, scoop the dough onto a silicone pastry mat dusted with a little coconut flour.
  6. fold the dough 2-3 times, adding a sprinkle of coconut flour to your hands and dough as needed to stop it sticking, and shape into a sausage 4-5cm in diameter.
  7. dip a sharp knife into the coconut flour and cut the sausage dough in half, then each half into 2 sections and each section into half, to obtain 8 equal slices.
  8. place the sliced dough over a baking tray lined with non-stick parchment paper, or insert into the 60mm cylinders silicone mould I used , without pressing down.
  9. (optional) brush milk (or cream+water) over the top of each scone.
  10. bake for 15 minutes, until golden on top.
  11. remove from oven, cool, slice, and serve with a dollop of keto-friendly jam (see post ˆ) and clotted cream/whipped cream.

Notes

Store the scones at room temperature in a sealed container to prevent them from drying out.
