Ingredients

For The Scones

For The Maple Glaze

  • cup powdered sugar can use 1/2 cup for a sweeter glaze
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened almond milk

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees and prepare a baking sheet by lining with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, whole wheat flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, and salt.
  • Add the oil and use pastry blender or fork to blend until the mixture resembles coarse sand.
  • Add the pumpkin puree and almond milk and stir to combine.
  • When the mixture resembles a wet dough, turn the dough out onto a floured surface. Knead the dough 10 to 12 times, then flatten the dough into an 8-inch disk.
  • Use a pastry cutter or pizza cutter to cut the dough into 12 wedges.
  • Place the wedges two inches apart on the lined baking sheet and bake for 14 to 16 minutes, until golden brown.
  • Remove the scones from the oven and prepare the glaze by whisking together the powdered sugar, maple syrup and almond milk until smooth. Drizzle the glaze over the warm scones and serve.

Notes

Tips For Making Pumpkin Scones
  • Don’t forget the parchment paper or a silicone mat for baking. This will prevent the scones from sticking to the pan and will turn out much nicer. 
  • Make sure you don't overwork the dough, so the vegan scones have the right texture.
  • Make sure to leave space between the scones on the baking sheet. They will rise and spread as they bake, so they need to be at least two inches apart. 
  • You can use vegan butter, vegetable oil, or olive oil instead of coconut oil.
  • To make this gluten-free, you can use Bob's Red Mill 1:1 Gluten-Free Baking Flour
  • Feel free to omit the pumpkin puree and add in another fruit or filling. Blueberries, dried cherries, currants, chopped apples, nuts and seeds, lemon would all work well.
  • For even more fiber, feel free to substitute whole wheat pastry flour for the all-purpose flour.
Note: With 1/4 cup brown sugar + 1/2 cup powdered sugar, each scone will have 9 grams of sugar instead of 6 grams of sugar
