That looks quartic in the length of l, because of the member check.

Here's a quadratic version:

(require srfi/1)
(define (subsets-of-size-2 l)
   (for*/list ([ne-sublist (pair-fold-right cons null l)]
               [b (in-list (cdr ne-sublist))])
     (cons (car ne-sublist) b)))

Note: (pair-fold-right cons null l) produces a list of the non-empty 
sublists of l.
