Chocolate Chip Scones (Low Carb)
This easy recipe for low carb Chocolate Chip Scones doesn’t require any fancy equipment — just a fork and a large spoon. They are as good as any scone at Starbucks and sugar free!
I used to frequent Starbucks several times a week when I worked as a Sign Language Interpreter in San Diego. I always ordered a venti cappuccino with sugar-free hazelnut syrup and sometimes the maple oat nut scone. That scone was my favorite thing in the whole world! Well, imagine my surprise… biting into these wonderful low carb chocolate chip scones and realizing they tasted almost the same. They are just amazing!
How amazing? Well, they have a nice crispy exterior and moist interior — not a cake-like interior – no way! They are a little dense – in a good way, and have a warm comforting flavor which is just perfect for Fall.
I’ve been making low carb almond flour scones for many years, now. I typically make them as a Sunday treat, but sometimes I wake up early in the morning and prepare them on a school day. It’s always a nice surprise for my kids.
I’ve prepared scones many ways over the years, but I especially love them with chocolate chips. This time I chopped up a Sukrin Milk Chocolate bar instead of the usual dark chocolate. It did not disappoint! The chocolate is sweetened with erythritol and stevia so it sugar-free. It’s also delicious.
To introduce that warm brown sugar flavor we all love in chocolate chip cookies, I used the Sukrin Gold which is the best brown sugar substitute I’ve found to date. It tastes just like brown sugar and never dries out. If you don’t have the Sukrin Gold, adding maple extract mimics the warmth and depth of flavor brown sugar provides. So, use more maple extract in the recipe.
These low carb scones have a nice crispy exterior and are between a biscuit and cookie in texture, but make sure not to over bake them. You don’t want them to get too dry.
I bet your friends and family will never in a million years guess that these scones are gluten-free, sugar-free and ketogenic to boot. You’ll fool ’em all with this tasty chocolate chip scone recipe.
Hi Jen, sure! I made this chocolate chip scone recipe for Sukrin USA. It lives on their site. Sometimes bloggers help out other sites by contributing content. At the bottom of the page, click these words “Get the recipe at Sukrin USA”. I hope this helps. Let me know if there are any other problems. -Kim
Is it the Sukrin Gold that makes them crispy on the outside? Or what is it?
I just made some low carb blueberry scones and they didn’t come out crispy. I was pretty disappointed in them but I made them for guests (who probably didn’t think they tasted too good but were very gracious not to say so lol). But I really didn’t care for them because they didn’t have that crispy exterior that I love in a good scone. Personally I like Panera’s scones better than Starbucks, although I admit I never tried your favorite variety at Starbucks. But Panera’s scones seem fresher to me.
Another question: Do you think I can substitute full fat canned coconut milk for the dairy milk as we are trying to be off dairy too? Thanks!
Hi Sharon. Great questions. Low carb scones are only going to be crispy for the first few hours. Some recipes are better than others. I have had good feedback from my scones recipes on the blog and Facebook. You can almost always sub full fat coconut milk (from a can) for heavy cream in recipes. Sometimes you can sub coconut oil for butter, but not always. The Sukrin Gold gives a nice flavor and a little crisp. I hope you enjoy the recipe. -Kim
Ok, just recently found this bloG a couple weeks ago and my g-free and low carb Pinterest boards have at least tripled in size! Definitely these are going on my to do list for the long weekend to take into work
… Wait, you were ASL interpreter in SD? I’m native San Diegan and so is my current interpreter (soo bizarre since we’re now in Bay Area) but we’re now playing deaf version of Kevin Bacon game of six degrees to figure out if we’ve ever met you before! hahahah, small world connections, right?
Tiffany, it IS a small world. I haven’t interpreted in San Diego in 15 years. I worked for NIS as Staff Interpreter for a few years and also free-lanced for the school systems and around town. This was when L. Mendoza and A. Jones were also full-time employees. Enjoy the cheesecakes and thanks for having me walk down memory lane! Have a nice weekend. -Kim
Katina, lucky for you, this is an easy recipe. Sub in your favorite sweetener and whatever sugar-free or low sugar chocolate you have. The dough is just a little bit sticky, but should be fine to handle. Just use a spoon or spatula to mix – NOT a hand mixer. You will do great! Have a nice weekend. -Kim
I just made these and had to stop by and drop a comment. These are freakin the best scones I have ever had! They are so moist and I love the maple taste. One of the easiest recipes too. They are sure to be a staple in my house!
Scones! I adore scones, especially when they have chocolate inside them as well. And it’s been way too long since I’ve had one. These look incredible…definitely a must try. I am thinking weekend breakfast, with a very large coffee. Thanks for sharing!
Hi Lina. The recipe is on the Sukrin site which I linked to at the bottom of the page. I developed the recipe for Pernille (the owner) to put on her Sukrin Blog. Sometimes bloggers help each other out by doing this type of work. Enjoy the recipe! -Kim
Oh boy I need to make these ASAP!! Just happen to pick up some Sukrin gold too!! I used to enjoy a chocolate chip scone a long time ago. They had also a bit of expresso in them so I think I will add it too
I love scones and these look divine, Kim! I can’t thank you enough for this recipe. And as I just posted under Sukrin’s post, I just purchased all the items. Gurl, I can’t wait to make these babies and I may not share, lol! One concern since we have nut allergies in my family, what flour can I use as a substitute for the almond flour? Thank you so much!!!
Jackie, I’m glad this recipe appeals to you! I love the Sukrin products, you will love their sweeteners. I have not made a scone recipe from any other flour except almond. Can your family enjoy coconut flour? I just did a Google search for “coconut flour scones recipe” and got several hits. You can still use the Sukrin Gold, the chocolate and maple extract to mimic the flavors going on in these scones. Thanks for leaving such a nice comment. Enjoy your day! -Kim
