I am so incredibly thankful for all of my fellow food bloggers who are creating low carb recipes. While I love to create keto friendly recipes, I haven’t dabbled much into keto baked goods.

Maya Krampf, from the blog Wholesome Yum, came up with this recipe for ketoCranberry-Orange Scones. It’s just one of the many, many delicious keto recipes in her new book, The Wholesome Yum Easy Keto Cookbook (scroll on down to the bottom of this post for a chance to win your own copy, or you can find it on Amazon).

I knew right away this was the first recipe that I wanted to try from the book. I have been craving orange cranberry muffins, so this was the perfect low carb treat to satisfy that craving. And, as promised in the title of the book, they were super easy to make.

I’m looking forward to trying so many of the recipes in her cookbook. The Chili Lime Turkey Burgers are next on my list, but I also can’t wait to make the Maple Bacon Pancake Muffins and the Taco Stuffed Avocados!

In a small bowl, whisk together the melted coconut oil, orange zest, vanilla extract, and egg.

Stir the wet mixture into the almond flour mixture, pressing with a spoon or spatula, until a uniform dough forms. The dough should be pliable and dense, but not crumbly. Add a little more coconut oil, a teaspoon at a time, if it’s very dry.

Tip: use refined coconut oil if you don’t want your scones to have any coconut flavor.
