I figured it high-time I share a scone recipe as I love them so much! They are fun and easy to make and versatile as they can be enjoyed as a breakfast, snack or dessert. This particular recipe is packed with big-time pumpkin and pumpkin spice flavor—they are just perfectly flavored (in my humble opinion)! I hope you love them too.

  • 3 cups gluten-free all purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar or granulated sweetener of choice
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin spice blend
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt or pink salt
  • 3/4 cup pumpkin puree no added ingredients, just pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup milk of choice I like to use oat milk, plus extra for brushing
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil liquid/melted
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup or liquid sweetener of choice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips of choice
  • coarse sea salt or flaked salt if not keen on looks, you can use regular sea salt for that salty finish!


  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper then set aside. In a large bowl combine flour, sugar, pumpkin spice, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Mix well.
  • In another large bowl combine pumpkin, milk, oil, maple syrup and vanilla. Whisk until smooth.
  • Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix until a dough begins to form. Using your hands, knead the dough until smoothly combined.
  • Fold in chocolate chips.
  • Place the dough onto the prepared baking sheet. Form it into a circle of dough approximately 8 inches across. Flatten and shape with your hands into a disc approximately 1 inch thick. Slice the dough into 8 triangular slices. Brush with milk and sprinkle with salt.
  • Bake for 25 minutes or until firm and golden.
  • Let cool slightly before serving. Enjoy!

    hello! I made these the recently and was so stoked to find an allergy-friendly sweet treat to create. however, the scones fell a little flat- and I don’t mean literally, although I did make my thinner and larger so maybe that contributed to my problems, but something in the texture was a little off (I may have over mixed the dough) and the taste of baking soda was detectable.
    these scones looked beautiful, but mine didn’t crisp up like a scone should, and they tasted nice, but something was a little off with flavor and consistency and I’m not sure quite where I went wrong!

    1. I’m so sorry to hear that! They should have crisp outsides for sure and a pillowy texture inside. Do you mind sharing what brand of flour you used? And if you made any modifications at all? Thanks! And sorry again!
