Ingredients for Orange Scones:

For the scones
  • 1 cup superfine almond flour
  • ¼ cup superfine coconut flour
  • ¼ cup Swerve granulated sweetener
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 large egg
  • ¼ cup heavy cream
  • 4 tablespoons (½ stick) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon orange extract
  • ¼ cup slivered almonds

For the glaze
  • 1 tablespoon full-fat cream cheese
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 3 tablespoons Swerve granulated sweetener

How to Make Orange Scones:

  1. For the scones: Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; put aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the almond flour, coconut flour, sweetener, baking powder, and salt. Make a well in the dry ingredients.
  3. Add the egg and beat in the well. Pour in the cream, melted butter, and orange extract and stir until smooth. Stir in the slivered almonds.
  4. Place the dough on the prepared baking sheet. Pat into a 6-inch-diameter, ½-inch-thick loaf. Cut into 8 wedges and separate the wedges slightly so they don’t bake together.
  5. Bake for 25 minutes, or until golden. Turn off the oven and leave the scones in the oven for 10 to 15 minutes.
  6. For the glaze: Combine the cream cheese, butter, and sweetener in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high for 30 seconds. Mix well with a fork until the butter and cream cheese have melted and the mixture is smooth. (If necessary, microwave in 10-second increments, stirring between each, until smooth.)
  7. Drizzle the glaze over the scones. Serve warm.
