Mini Lemon Scones
My neighbor gave me this recipe for mini lemon scones.   They’re keto friendly and delicious!  She called them muffins, but they’re more like scones so that’s what I’ll call them here.

Low Carb Lemon Scones

Dry ingredients:
2 1/2 cups Almond Flour (NOT almond meal)
1/2 cup Splenda (or sugar)
3/4 teaspoons baking powder
1-2 teaspoons fresh lemon zest
1/2 teaspoon salt

Wet Ingredients:
2 eggs
4 Tablespoons butter (I use Kerry Gold)
1 teaspoon lemon juice
2 Tablespoons half & half or milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine wet and dry ingredients.  Scoop spoonfuls onto a baking sheet.  Bake in a 350 degree oven until golden brown.

Cream Cheese Frosting (Optional)
4 oz cream cheese
2/3 cups Powdered Sugar (or Swerve sugar free powdered sugar)
1 teaspoon lemon juice

Mix well.  Frost cooled scones.

If you prefer traditional lemon glaze, substitute butter for cream cheese.

A word about substitutions:

This recipe is intended to be low carb and sugar free.  Some substitutions will change the texture.

Flour - I have only ever made these scones with almond flour.  I know that whole wheat flour will make these scones heavy and hard.  I am uncertain about other flours.

Sweetness - This is not a super sweet recipe.  As written it is lightly sweet.  For added sweetness try Splenda baking blend or real sugar.

Lemon Juice - I’ve made this recipe with real and bottled lemon juice.  Though I prefer real juice, the bottle juice version came out just fine.
