Pumpkin Spice Scones Recipe

Posted by on Sunday, October 23rd, 2016 in Miscellaneous.

Cool air is here and I finally get to run my oven! I’m so excited to get some new baking recipes going this season. It is always fun to experiment and try new things. Lately I have been looking for pumpkin everything when it comes to cooking, so of course I have a pumpkin delight to share with you today.

This recipe comes from Raepublic. Chana Rae does a great job at providing healthy, vegan recipes that do not fall short in flavor. This pumpkin spice scone recipe is a nice treat!

Pumpkin Spice Scones

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups whole-wheat pastry flour
  • 2/3 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil, solid
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon Himalayan salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 2 flax eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Mix together dry ingredients in a large bowl.
  3. Little by little add in coconut oil, maple syrup, flax eggs, pumpkin puree and vanilla – mixing as you go.
  4. Combine until you have a thick dough – I like using a hand mixer for this.
  5. On a floured surface, form dough into a circle that is roughly an inch deep all around and cut into 8 pieces, just like you would a pizza!
  6. Place separated slices onto a parchment paper covered baking sheet or better yet, a silicone baking mat.
  7. Bake for 12 – 15 minutes.

One thing I wanted to add is how to make a flax egg. I’m sure an actual egg could be substituted, but to keep this recipe vegan, a flax egg is the next best thing. I make mine with flax seed that I have ground in my coffee grinder. Use 1T of ground flax, or flax meal, then add 2.5-3T of water. Stir it together into a slurry and put it in the fridge for at least 15 minutes. This allows it to set up and become more egg-like.

Also, feel free to mix half whole wheat flour and half white flour in case you do not have whole wheat pastry flour. I run my flour through a sifter to help the dough rise better while baking, and it helps to combine the two flours evenly.

How I made this recipe my own is by adding some pecans and chocolate chips. Everything is better with some chocolate! Furthermore, you could make your own icing to drizzle on top. I prefer mine icing free, but I do dip it in my coffee or tea. You should try it. I highly recommend it.

Let us know if you enjoyed this recipe or if you have any others that you would like to share with us. We both enjoy cooking and baking, so any opportunity to try a new recipe is great. Take care everyone and enjoy!
