Savory scones? YES! These little beauties are the brunch side you didn’t know you needed but will turn an average brunch into the brunch of your dreams in just thirty minutes! These cheddar chive keto scones will change your life. Well, ok. Just your breakfast. But you’ll still thank me.
I’ve made these for a couple different events and they’ve received great reviews from keto and non-keto types alike. They’re just plain good.
Cheddar & Chive Keto Scones
Last month, I shared my gorgeous Chocolate Raspberry Scone recipe. I love those, but I might love these even more. And if you know how much I love chocolate, that is seriously saying something.
This is the same base as the sweet scones, we’re just adding savory flavors instead of sweet ones.
I use a food processor to cut the butter into the dry ingredients of almond flour, xanthan gum, baking powder, onion and garlic powders, and salt.
You can also use a pastry blender, if that’s more your style.
Once it’s the texture of coarse crumbs, we add a mixture of egg and sour cream and also 4 oz shredded sharp cheddar and some chopped fresh chives.
Fold this all together until it’s fully combined.
Next, roll it out between two sheets of parchment to about 1″ thickness.
You can keep them large and cut it into eight, but I prefer to cut mine into sixteen.
I know these are pretty little things, but the pics just don’t to these justice. The flavor will blow you away. Just make sure you have people to share them with or you’ll be tempted to eat the whole batch!
Get in mah belly!
These are the absolute perfect addition to your Easter brunch menu! Maybe alongside this super easy Bacon Gruyere Egg Bake?
