  • Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, stir together the almond flour, coconut flour, sweetener, chia seeds, baking powder, and salt.
  • Using a pastry cutter or two butter knives, cut the butter into the almond flour mixture until the largest piece of butter is roughly pea-sized.
  • Using a sturdy spoon or spatula, stir the egg, cream, lemon zest, lemon juice, and vanilla extract into the almond flour mixture. Continue mixing until a slightly-wet dough forms.
  • Transfer the dough onto the prepared baking sheet. Using your hands, form it into a circle about 6 inches wide. Make sure the dough has even thickness.
  • Cut the dough into 6 even wedges. Gently separate them on the baking sheet.
  • Bake for 18-20 minutes or until the edges are just beginning to turn brown.
  • Remove from the oven and allow the scones to cool on the pan for about 10 minutes. Next, transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Once the scones are cooled, prepare the glaze by mixing the Swerve powdered sweetener with the lemon juice.
  • Spoon the glaze evenly over each cooled scone.
