TRADITIONAL DEVON SCONES
(The Keto Way)
Because it’s early Summer in the UK and we have an abundance of fresh strawberries (with which to make keto strawberry jam (see my recipe earlier in the blog), I’ve been trying to find the perfect scone recipe on which I can lavish jam and clotted cream – in the traditional Devonshire way. This recipe, with lupin flour, does deliver a traditional Devon Scone (the keto way). They are light and sweet and a perfect afternoon treat that even your non-keto guests will enjoy. At only 1g net carbs each served with dairy butter, even with a good teaspoon of jam and lashings of clotted cream, you can treat yourself whenever you fancy this quintessential English afternoon tea treat.

I’ve tried a few keto scone recipes, but have had to merge three recipes to get something that works with my preferred ingredients and that I actually like. So here it is: Probably the best keto scone recipe! They are slightly sweet and slightly moist with a great crumb, but not dry and crumbly. They are fantastic with just butter and equally delicious served with keto Strawberry Jam (from this blog) and lashings of whipped cream. At only 5 net carbs each, you can afford to add lashings of butter or cream and a tablespoon of jam!
STRAWBERRY JAM Summer is thinking about arriving here in the UK, so I’ve been inspired to make something with our rather wonderful English strawberries – and what could be nicer than Strawberry Jam? This easy to make, keto-friendly, sugar-free version of this English classic is sweet and delicious and just perfect on homemade keto scones
ALMOND & RASPBERRY MUFFINS
I just love the combination of almond and raspberries. There’s something rich and luxurious about these two flavours together and this recipe was inspired by my love of bakewell tarts. The muffins are simple to make, bake in 18 minutes and can easily be frozen. These lovely muffins have just 4.5 carbs each and are delicious with a cup of tea or coffee or warmed in the microwave and served with cream or custard as a dessert or pudding.
I love almonds and I love the taste of almond in sweet, baked goods. I’ve created this recipe because I just love Bakewell Tarts. They are a memory from my childhood, from Saturday teas and afternoons when my Nan came to visit. With keto sweet pastry and my keto Raspberry jam, these lovely cakes are just 5.6 carbs each. Well worth the effort of making.
If, like me, you have a sweet tooth, then this truly lovely (and incredibly simple to make) jam is a revelation. It takes just 10 minutes to make and rolls in at 1.3 net carbs per tablespoon. It’s a keto treat you can enjoy in small quantities or in your baking recipes.
BLACKBERRY JAM with BRANDY & VODKA
Blackberries are one of my favourite fruits, so it is wonderful to have developed a recipe that will allow me to eat sweet, juicy blackberries, on my keto diet. I use frozen blackberries for this recipe as I pick them myself at the end of each summer season and freeze them at home. They have a much better flavour than forced out-of-season blackberries you can buy in the shops. At just 2g per tablespoon, this jam is a daily treat you can easily afford – even on keto!
STRAWBERRY & CHERRY VODKA JAM
OMG – Who can eat jam like this on a diet? This fantastic, sweet, and flavourful jam is a must for anyone with a sweet tooth on a keto, low-carb or regular low-calorie diet. The only carbohydrates come from the strawberries themselves and at only 1.65 carbs per tablespoon, it’s a lovely breakfast or afternoon treat you simply can’t afford to miss. The cherry vodka adds a wonderfully decadent feel to the jam to make it a special Christmas treat.
