Warm, pumpkin scones are the perfect treat for breakfast or any occasion! Enjoy with a glaze if you want a little more sweetness. I love scones! They are like biscuits only Better because they can come in so many different flavors!
I like my scones with a little butter (vegan butter) and sometimes I like to have a little nut butter on mine.
Sweet potato scones. Substitute the pumpkin purée for 1/2 a cup of sweet potato purée.
Butternut squash scones. Substitute the pumpkin purée for 1/2 a cup of butternut squash purée. Acorn, winter, summer, or spaghetti squash purée will work as well.
Try these other recipes:
Pumpkin. I used canned pumpkin in these scones but homemade pumpkin will work just leave out 1-2 tbsp of the dairy free milk.
Oats. I add oats to my scones for extra protein and a healthier take on scones.
Sugar. For best flavor use organic cane sugar.
Ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg & cloves. Warm fall spices are a vital addition to pumpkin based foods.
Butter. Vegan or non-vegan butter will work for this recipe.
Gluten free option. Use a good gluten free baking flour and these scones should come out fine. Note* I have not tested these as gluten free yet. If you make a gluten free version let me know*
Vegan. To keep these scones vegan use vegan butter.
Dairy free. These scones will be dairy free as long as you use vegan butter.
