Are strawberries keto-friendly?
Yes, you can eat strawberries on a keto diet. Like most berries, strawberries can be consumed in moderation without impacting your ketosis or blood sugar level too much.
In fact, 1 cup of fresh strawberries contains only 6 grams of net carbs per 100 grams, which is actually half of in blueberries!

Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Slightly oil the paper with coconut oil if yours tends to stick to food. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk all the dry ingredients together: almond flour, coconut flour, sugar-free crystal sweetener, baking powder, and salt.
Add all the liquid ingredients at room temperature (not cold or hot!): beaten egg, melted coconut oil, vanilla, unsweetened almond milk.
Stir the ingredients together with a spatula for a few seconds (it is crumbly at first, that is normal), then pour in chopped strawberries and use your hands to knead/squeeze the dough to form a ball. It should take about 1 minute to form a consistent dough. If it is too dry, it can happen if you add too much coconut flour, add a splash of more almond milk. If too wet, it can happen if you used frozen strawberries that release some juice, add 1 teaspoon extra coconut flour.
Sprinkle 1 teaspoon of coconut flour on your benchtop (this prevents the dough from sticking to the bench). Place the dough ball on the benchtop, sprinkle 1 teaspoon of coconut flour on top of the dough ball, then press the dough ball to flatten into a thick disk.
Smoothen the sides of the disk to shape lovely scones.
Cut the disk into 10 even triangles to make 10 scones.
Slide a spatula under each triangle to transfer them onto the cookie sheet covered with parchment paper.
Place each scone/triangle onto the cookie sheet leaving 1 thumb space between each scone. They won't expand while baking, but you don't want them to touch each other.
Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the top is golden brown.
Cool down for 2 hours on a cookie rack before decorating.
In a small mixing bowl, add powdered sugar-free sweetener, unsweetened almond milk, and strawberry stevia drops (optional, it simply adds a delicious strawberry flavor).
Whisk to form the glazing. If too thick, add more powdered sweetener, 1 tablespoon at a time. If too liquid, add 1 teaspoon of extra almond milk, 1 at a time.
When the scones are cold, at room temperature, spread a tablespoon of icing on each scone. Place the scones in the fridge for 15 minutes to set the icing.
Store the scones for up to 3 days in a cookie jar or freeze in zip bags. Defrost the day before.
Keto Vegan option: replace the egg with a flaxegg and add 1/2 teaspoon of guar gum to the dry ingredients. To make a flax egg combine 1 tbsp of flaxseed meal with 3 tbsp of lukewarm water. Stir, set aside 10 minutes until an egg-like texture forms. Use in the recipe as an egg replacer.Net carbs per scone including glazing, the recipe makes 10 scones: 5.6 gStrawberry replacement: you can make this recipe using raspberries or blueberries. Blueberries contain 2 times more net carbs and it will increase the carbs per serving.
