Two flavors that pair so well together are lemon and lavender.

Lemon being a little sweet, a little sour and very bright, plus the strong calming scent and floral flavor of lavender makes for a perfect combination in a baked good.

Since I’ve moved and have been spending more time with friends, I’ve been baking a lot. I have so many baked goods, and so I always set them out with a little tea for myself and friends to talk over.

I used Truvia Sweet Complete Granulated All-Purpose Sweetener and Sweet Complete Confectioners as my reduced sugar option in these sweet, floral scones.

As you know, I have a long-standing love for Truvia products, especially their line of Sweet Complete Sweeteners. The granulated version bakes and browns in recipes, without the added calories.

Truvia is also diabetes-friendly, and it tastes great. Over time, I’ve found it to be the best sweetener for me overall.

How to make Lemon Lavender Scones

These Lemon Lavender scones are very easy to make.

Scones can also be a little bit dry sometimes, which is why I think people shy away from them. The texture of these are part biscuit, part bread, so they’re tender when they’re warm, but also have a great structure when served at room temp.

For the scones:

Preheat your oven to 425ºF.

Shred frozen butter, with a box grater, or food processor.

In a mixing bowl, add all-purpose flour, baking powder, Truvia Sweet Complete Granulated All-Purpose Sweetener and salt. Whisk them together, to make sure everything is incorporated.

Then, add the butter to the dry ingredients, and combine until the butter is incorporated and looks like little beads.

Once the dry ingredients and butter are combined, add in your oat milk, egg, vanilla bean paste, lemon extract, lemon and food-grade lavender. Mix until the dough just comes together. You don’t want to overwork the dough, and you want the butter to stay relatively cool for those flaky layers.

Spread some flour out on your work surface and cover your hands in flour so the dough doesn’t stick. Your dough may be a little sticky in this stage – that’s OK. Roll the dough out and fold it on top of itself 6-8 times. That’s going to create some layering and pockets for the butter.

Press it out into a circular shape and cut it into 8 triangles. You might need to wet your knife for this, so the dough doesn’t stick to it.

Place the scones onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 20-25 minutes.

For the Glaze:

Combine Truvia Sweet Complete Confectioners Sweetener, lemon juice, lemon zest and water, and mix it together. It should be a thinner consistency for drizzling with a spoon on top of the scones.

Once the scones have baked, take them out of the oven to cool completely, and then drizzle with the glaze, and a few extra lavender flowers.

Are scones diabetes-friendly?

If you’ve been reading my blog for a long time, you’re probably aware that I don’t assign labels like “good” or “bad” to foods, and I think that the bigger question is, “will this spike my blood sugars or not.”

Because we’re using AP flour in this recipe, you will find that your blood sugar will likely spike in this case.

But, since we’re using Truvia in the recipe, we’re opting for fewer calories you won’t see as severe of a spike as you might when using regular granulated sugar.

I also find that these scones are so rich and buttery. Although the batch makes 8, you could certainly cut them into halves or quarters and enjoy a smaller serving to reduce the carb count. A whole scone in this case is pretty generous!
