Chocolate Chip Scones with Almond Flour

I am so excited that it’s National Chocolate Chip Day because I get to share one of my favorite recipes with you. This chocolate chip scone recipe is one that I’ve been making for years and it’s one that dear hubby and I both enjoy.

It’s been adapted from the scone recipe in The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook by Elana Amsterdam. It’s naturally low in carbs because of the almond flour but is easily adaptable to go even lower, which I do with the low carb sweetener and sugar free chocolate chips. It’s also gluten free.

I love this recipe because it tastes great and it fits into my low carb, diabetic lifestyle. I don’t feel guilty when I have these and they are in regular rotation at my house! I hope you’ll give them a try.

What do you think?

  1. These look great,could you tell me what their texture is like when cooled? Soft and crumbly or crisp and crunchy? I’ve been on a long hunt for a crunchy cookie that’s low carb.

    • Food Stories says:

      Hi Sherah – These are one of my faves. They are definitely not crunchy/crispy but not totally soft and crumbly either. They fall somewhere in the middle but probably closer to soft/crumbly. Probably the best descriptor would be firm but on the softer side.

  2. Hi, I’ve never used Davinci syrups before so I did a quick google search. Which one do you use? The ones I came across are all flavored?
