Pumpkin Scones 🎃

image

I’m in a pumpkin phase now that it’s September and almost fall so you will see alot of Pumpkin posts, haha love it! 🎃

I used to bake alot of scones back in my high school cooking classes but haven’t made them in many years and definitely they were full of refined sugar. I swapped out butter for coconut oil, used whole wheat flour and healthier option for sweetner; xylitol. They turned out great! Enjoy πŸ™‚

Here’s the recipe➑

Scones:
➑ingredients➑
β€’2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
β€’1/3 cup granulated xylitol
β€’1Tbsp baking powder
β€’1tsp ground cinnamon
β€’1/2tsp ground nutmeg
β€’1/4tsp ground cloves
β€’1/4tsp ground ginger
β€’1/4tsp sea salt
β€’6Tbsp solid coconut oil
β€’1/2 cup pure pumpkin puree
β€’3Tbsp almond milk
β€’1 egg
➑method➑
1. Preheat oven to 425Β°F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. Combine all dry ingredients in large bowl. With pastry cutter or fork cut the coconut oil into the dry ingredients until mixture is crumbly looking. Set aside.
3. In separate bowl whisk pumpkin,Β  almond milk and egg.Β  Fold into wet ingredients and form into ball. Flour clean dry surface and lightly pat dough to form rectangle about 1 inch thick. Using pizza cutter or large knife cut rectangle into 3 even squares. Cut each portion into an X pattern to create 12 triangular slices. Place dough on parchment lined sheet. Bake for 13 – 15min or until lightly browned. Place on wire rack to cool.

Chocolate drizzle:
β€’1Tbsp coconut oil, melted
β€’1Tbsp cacao powder
β€’Agave to taste
➑Whisk with fork until no clumps left, drizzle over cooled scones. Place in freezer for 5min to harden chocolate. Can be stored at room temp or fridge.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Froyo

Chocolate Peanut Butter Froyo

Chocolate Peanut Butter Froyo:

1-1/2C 0% Greek Yogurt
3 Tbsp natural peanut butter
2 Tbsp unsweet cocoa
1 Tbsp honey
1/2 cup unsweet almond milk (or milk of choice)

Blend all together with hand blender, pour into ice cream maker and use according to your maker. If you don’t have a ice cream maker than you can always put in freezer stirring every 45minutes or so (takes longer obviously). Serve soft or store in freezer.

Toppings are endless, here I have organic dark chocolate wafers chopped, 1/2 of one of my almond “fudge” bars chopped, walnuts, chopped 85% dark chocolate, natural and dark chocolate peanut butter melted and drizzled over top. Choose whatever toppings you like!
