This Vegan and Gluten Free Pumpkin Scone is nutty, sticky, moist and it’s just perfect for the fall season.
WHAT’S IN THESE PUMPKIN SCONE?
Since it’s Thanksgiving, I thought what’s a better way to celebrate other than to share these super delicious vegan and gluten free pumpkin scones! (I have made two versions, one with almond flour and one with gluten free flour as you can see in the pictures above).
The differences between these two version is very different in taste and texture. The ones made with almond flour tastes nuttier, has a sticky texture like macaron, LESS dry and uses WAY more flour than gluten free flour. And the ones made with gluten free flour only resembles scones more and is more fry and bready for sure! I encourage you to try both and see which version you like!
Here are the ingredients you’ll need!
Almond flour OR Gluten Free Flour
Pumpkin puree (Homemade recipe can be found HERE)
Baking powder/baking soda/ salt
