These pumpkin scones are one of my favorite breakfasts to make in the Fall.

To create this recipe, I decided to start off with my orange scone recipe that my family loves so much.

For my first attempt, I decided to add in pumpkin, warm Fall spices, and use a little less milk. I was certain that this would be it and I wouldn’t have to keep experimenting.

Well, I was wrong! The dough was too sticky which meant I had way too much liquid in it.

The other thing I noticed was that they tasted like flour. I clearly did not have enough sweetener in them.

So for the next try, I decided to leave the milk out entirely and bump up the amount of coconut sugar quite a bit.

This time they came out perfectly!

They were the perfect texture and had a delicious pumpkin spice flavor.

There is just something about pumpkin with cinnamon and nutmeg that makes me feel all warm and cozy.

The spiced maple glaze adds an extra touch of sweetness and spice that takes these scones to another level.

So let’s talk about what you need to make these pumpkin scones.

HOW TO MAKE GLUTEN FREE PUMPKIN SCONES:

  1. Preheat oven: 425°F.
  2. Combine dry ingredients: In a large bowl, add all of the dry ingredients and whisk to combine.  I recommend using a kitchen scale to measure out the flour for this recipe.
  3. Cut in butter: Cut the butter into the flour mixture using a pastry blender or fork. You should have pea sized balls of butter throughout the flour.
  4. Add wet ingredients to dry: Add the pumpkin puree, maple syrup, and vanilla to the dry ingredients.  Mix with a rubber spatula until a dough forms.
  5. Transfer dough: Lightly flour a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper to prevent the dough from sticking.  Transfer the dough onto the cookie sheet and form a ball.
  6. Cut dough: If the dough is really sticky, sprinkle with additional brown rice flour. Press down gently on the dough to form a 2” thick disk. Cut the dough with a knife right down the middle, then across, and then diagonal twice to form 8 triangles.
  7. Separate scones: Separate the triangles and move them about a 2 inches apart to provide room for rising. I use a fork to get under the scones to separate them.
  8. Bake: 15 minutes.
  9. Make the glaze: To make the glaze, combine all glaze ingredients in a small bowl and stir to combine.
  10. Top scones with glaze: Once the scones have cooled a bit, drizzle the glaze on them.  Allow the glaze to set and then serve.

  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon
  • Sprinkle of nutmeg 

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. In a large bowl, add all of the dry ingredients and whisk to combine.  I recommend using a kitchen scale to measure out the flour for this recipe.*
  3. Cut the butter into the flour mixture using a pastry blender or fork. You should have pea sized balls of butter throughout the flour.
  4. Add the pumpkin puree, maple syrup, and vanilla to the dry ingredients.  Mix with a rubber spatula until a dough forms.

Notes

I recommend using a digital scale to measure the flour instead of using the cup measurements.  The amount of flour used is very important to get right and not everyone uses the same technique when using cup measurements.  This is the inexpensive scale I use

  1. Hi
    I am planning to give this recipe a try. Can I substitute tapioca starch in place of arrowroot ?
    I can not have corn…so corn starch would also not work.

    1. Hi Rati, yes tapioca starch should work just fine as a substitute for the arrowroot. I hope you enjoy them!
