Pumpkin Scones

These grain and dairy free Pumpkin Scones are a delightful way to kick off the holiday season as we head into the “ber” months.

It’s officially Fall, right? Okay, maybe not quite but I am ready for all things pumpkin! I am not a big Starbucks PSL girl but I will gladly eat or drink or smell just about anything else that’s packed full of pumpkin.

If you are a PSL girl you have to checkout this Clean Eating Pumpkin Spice Smoothie though. Imagine all the pumpkin spice flavor with little to no guilt!

These Pumpkin Scones are mild enough for breakfast and sweet enough for dessert. They have a chewy soft texture with a special hint of pumpkin and Fall seasonings. My husband prefers them without the chocolate chips, I like them both ways. The chocolate chips can over power the pumpkin flavor depending on what brand of pumpkin you use so tread carefully.

This recipe is going to be a favorite of anyone who truly loves the Fall months. You can’t go wrong making these for a girls get together or just these for the kids. Personally, my favorite time of the year to make them is around Halloween. The week of Halloween they snack on these scones and Simple Roasted Pumpkin Seeds all week long. There is nothing else that screams Halloween more than Pumpkins. It is a perfect match.

Overall, these scones are so good and will make it feel like Fall as soon as the first bite hits your taste buds. Enjoy!

  1. What would you suggest instead of agave? I can’t touch the stuff – makes my face go numb/tingly and I get terrible migraines within minutes of eating it, even the smallest amount.

  2. These have been a fall staple at our house! I make them weekly in a mini muffin pan, and I’ve started adding in flaxseeds for a little bit of a healthy crunch!

  3. What kind of Pumpkin do you use? Is it canned pumpkin? I’m sure its not pumpkin Pie filling.

  4. 5 stars
    Just made these; they turned out delicious. I used a cookie scoop and only got about 18 scones of a smallish size. Because they were bigger than the recipe meant them to be, I cooked them for 7 extra minutes. They turned out just fine! I also subbed the agave syrup for maple syrup/
