2 cups almond flour
1/4 cup granulated erythritol or monk fruit sweetener
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup cold unsalted butter, cubed
1/2 cup dried cranberries (make sure they’re sweetened with a keto-friendly sweetener or use fresh cranberries if preferred)
Zest of 1 orange
1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk (or any unsweetened nut milk)
1 tablespoon fresh orange juice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the Glaze:

1/4 cup powdered erythritol or monk fruit sweetener
2-3 tablespoons fresh orange juice


Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.

Prepare the Dough: In a large mixing bowl, combine the almond flour, granulated erythritol or monk fruit sweetener, baking powder, and salt. Stir until well combined.

Add the cold butter to the dry ingredients. Use a pastry cutter or fork to cut the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.

Stir in the dried cranberries and orange zest until evenly distributed.

Mix the Wet Ingredients: In a separate bowl, whisk together the almond milk, orange juice, and vanilla extract.

Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients: Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Stir until just combined, being careful not to overmix. The dough should be slightly sticky.

Shape and Cut the Scones: Transfer the dough onto a lightly floured surface (you can use almond flour for dusting). Pat it into a circle about 1 inch thick. Use a sharp knife or pastry cutter to cut the dough into 8 wedges.

Bake the Scones: Place the scones onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving space between each one. Bake in the preheated oven for 18-22 minutes, or until the scones are lightly golden brown on top.

Prepare the Glaze: In a small bowl, whisk together the powdered erythritol or monk fruit sweetener and orange juice until smooth. Adjust the consistency by adding more orange juice if needed.

Glaze the Scones: Once the scones are cooled slightly, drizzle the glaze over the top of each scone.

Serve and Enjoy: Allow the glaze to set for a few minutes before serving. Enjoy the scones warm or at room temperature.
