Keto Strawberry Rhubarb Scones because strawberries and rhubarb are true besties that were meant to live side by side. Recently I got my hands on some fresh rhubarb, apparently, that’s not such an easy task here in South Florida.
Thrilled that I did, I immediately decided it was time I created another rhubarb recipe. And I thought what better than a recipe for Keto-friendly Strawberry Rhubarb Scones.
Not only did these turn out amazing but they gave me another recipe for my growing collection of keto scone recipes. After my Keto Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble recipe was well received, I kept watching for an opportunity to create another keto recipe that featured rhubarb’s tang.
And if you are a fan of pies, then my recipe for Keto Strawberry Rhubarb Pie is another one you should check out.
The only problem was that finding fresh rhubarb in Florida was the equivalent of finding a magical unicorn. I’m not kidding you here.
So when I began getting requests for more keto rhubarb recipes because you had a bumper crop of rhubarb, it was hard for me not to be jealous.
Honestly, because I can’t tell you how many times I would see the red stalks of swiss chard and get all excited thinking I had spotted some fresh rhubarb only to realize I was dead wrong.
I can only hope that those of you who do have fresh rhubarb easily available are not mistaking it for swiss chard because, in the case of rhubarb, the leaves can be toxic.
But something tells me that kinda mistake is reserved for folks like me who do not get their hands on fresh rhubarb often enough.
Keto Strawberry Rhubarb Scones
Once I realized that rhubarb comes into season for only a short window, that’s April to June. I quickly ran to the only place I thought for sure I could get my hands on some, Whole Foods. Thankfully, I was not disappointed.
I was on a mission to make rhubarb scones and would not be denied.
But here’s a funny story, since rhubarb is so rare in these parts that even some employees didn’t know for certain if what I had in my hands was truly rhubarb or red celery.
It didn’t help that the label was missing on the rhubarb stand. But red celery? Is that even a thing? My son later confirmed it was. Yup, this girl is still in need of learning a lot.
After someone finally confirmed it was indeed rhubarb I grabbed just about all the rhubarb on the stand. I left behind only three stalks, cause I felt kinda guilty taking them all. So I did the Christian thing and left behind just enough for someone else to make a rhubarb treat. I never said I was perfect guys, just forgiven. Ha!
Moving on, it’s no wonder that many recipes pair strawberries with rhubarb because they come into season at the same time.
Plus, they provide each other with the perfect balance of sweetness and tartness. They are a dynamic duo for these strawberry rhubarb scones. A match made in baking heaven as far as I’m concerned.
My scone recipe makes a fabulous addition to a springtime brunch or as an afternoon snack or even dessert. This recipe can be made in a 9-inch round cake pan, but I love using a cast-iron skillet because doing so gives them a crisp scone edge minus the fuss of rolling out the dough and then cutting them like biscuits.
Low Carb Strawberry Rhubarb Scones
I decided on a rhubarb scones recipe because I knew the rich flavor of my basic low-carb scone recipe would be a perfect fit for these two flavors. I also added a drizzle of vanilla icing to further enhance them. All I can say is yum, yum, yum.
The good thing is that you can also make these scones using frozen rhubarb if you’re hankering for some rhubarb but the small seasonal window has come to a close.
Or if you happen to grow your own rhubarb and are fortunate enough to be able to stock your freezer for future recipes. I hope you recognize just how blessed you are?!?
If that’s the case don’t worry about defrosting them. But freeze them in small thin slices.
In the case of these low-carb strawberry rhubarb scones, I simply added some thinly sliced rhubarb and fresh strawberries then folded the batter and baked it in my cast-iron skillet.
Scones can sometimes be on the dry and crumbly side. But that’s not the case with any of my Keto Scones. In fact, all my scones are moist and have the perfect tender crumb texture. And these strawberry rhubarb scones are no exception.

I will add that if you rather your healthy rhubarb scones not be on the sweet side, then skip the vanilla glaze. Although, you should at least try them with the glaze once, just saying.
To make these easy keto scones you’ll just need the following basic ingredients:
- Fresh or frozen thinly sliced rhubarb
- Fresh sliced strawberries
- Almond flour
- Coconut flour

Randy and I came to the keto diet looking at it from a Christian perspective, it’s the filter we choose to see from. When we decided to combine our Christian faith and the keto diet, we did so in hopes of finding lasting transformation.
To say we needed God’s intervention is putting it mildly. When we followed the Holy Spirit’s lead to embrace the ketogenic diet and to combine it with our faith, we got on the path to real transformation.
If you are looking for a Christian group that is using the keto diet to transform their lives we invite you to join our Private Facebook Group and see if it’s not the key you have been missing.
