Ingredients (Pumpkin Scones)

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 tbsp Spicely Organics pumpkin spice
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup vegan butter, cut into cubes
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 1 chia egg (1 tbsp ground chia + 3 tbsp water) *You can also use ground flax instead of chia*

Ingredients (Maple Cream Cheese Frosting)

  • 1/4 cup vegan cream cheese
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, pumpkin spice, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add cold vegan butter, using a fork to work the butter into the dry ingredients until it resembles coarse crumbs or wet sand.
  3. In a blender combine pumpkin puree, almond milk, chia egg and vanilla. Blend for 15 seconds or until well mixed, then pour mixture over dry ingredients and stir using a rubber spatula until a soft dough forms.
  4. Working on a lightly floured surface, knead the dough 3-4 times until it comes together. Form the dough into a log and begin to cut triangles . Should make 8-9 triangles!
  5. Place scones onto prepared baking sheet. Place into oven and bake for 10-12 minutes.
  6. To make the cream cheese maple frosting, combine vegan cream cheese, maple syrup and powdered sugar. Whisk until smooth.
  7. When the scones are done, cool for 10 minutes and spoon the glaze on each scone.
  8. Allow glaze to set before serving.
