Cheddar Zucchini Drop Scones and a Giveaway!

Cheddar Zucchini Drop Scones

I love these Cheddar Zucchini Drop Scones so much I’ve made them three times in two weeks!

My friend Carolyn Ketchum, who writes the blog All Day I Dream About Food, wrote this delicious book called The Everyday Ketogenic Kitchen. Not only will you find the recipe for these divine almond flour scones but you’ll also find many more low-carb recipes in this cookbook. 150 low-carb recipes to be exact!

Carolyn makes it possible to enjoy baked goods again. Which is a huge “hallelujah” in my house. My youngest is gluten intolerant and hasn’t been able to enjoy many baked goods since the age of 9. Of course, like most kids/teens she indulged occasionally anyway but always paid the price with nagging, uncomfortable, sometimes painful symptoms of gluten intolerance.

The Everyday Ketogenic Kitchen Cookbook includes recipes for everyone. Whether your watching your carbs for health reasons, dieting, eating gluten-free or just trying your best to stay healthy, this is your guide to delightful dining.

I left my last batch of these scones in the fridge while we were away last weekend. My daughter came home from college to babysit Tank and found them. Yep, you guessed it, she ate all my scones.

When I got home she told me those were the best savory scones and asked me how did I made them. Guess what she’s getting for Christmas. 🙂

Along with this luscious scone recipe, Carolyn wrote her heart, her knowledge and experience in this book has now given us a new lease on mealtime.

The book is so much more than just recipes, Carolyn also shares a sample ketogenic diet using her recipes, how to stock your pantry, kitchen equipment, low-carb baking tips and tricks, step by step instructions with full color photos and her best advice for living a successful ketogenic lifestyle.

Cheddar Zucchini Drop Scones and a Giveaway!

10 scones

Cheddar Zucchini Drop Scones and a Giveaway!


  • 2 1/2 cups finely shredded zucchini (about 2 medium-small zucchini)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups blanched almond flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese (about 4 ounces), divided
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted but not hot


  • Place the zucchini in a large sieve in the sink and sprinkle with salt. Toss to coat and let drain for 1 hour, then wrap in a tea towel and squeeze out as much moisture as possible.
  • Pre-heat the oven to 325F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, garlic powder, salt and two-thirds of the cheese. Stir in the zucchini, eggs and melted butter until the dough comes together.
  • Using about 1/4 cup at a time, form the dough into balls and then press down to about 1 inch thick. Sprinkle each scone with some of the remaining cheese. Bake for 20-22 minutes, until the scones are golden brown and firm to the touch.
  • Let them cool on the baking sheet for at least 10 minutes. Store leftovers in the refrigerator for up to a week. Rewarm in the microwave or toaster oven,
  • Notes

    Be sure to let the zucchini drain for one hour. The first time I made these I let them drain for about 30 minutes because I was in a hurry to make them. Although I did squeeze the zucchini fairly well, I should have waited the full hour. The scones were still fabulous but the second batch was even better. It pays to be patient, which is why I'm not a baker. 🙂
