Ingredients

  • 2 Cups almond flour
  • 1/2 Cup pumpkin purée
  • 1/2 Cup dried cranberries
  • 1/4 Cup shredded coconut
  • 1/4 Cup crushed pecans
  • 1 egg
  • 3 Tablespoons raw organic honey, melted
  • 1 Teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 Teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 Teaspoon cinnamon, plus more to taste
  • 1 Teaspoon pumpkin pie spice, plus more to taste
  • 1/2 Teaspoon ginger

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Combine all of the ingredients in a mixing bowl and knead together with your hands. Press the dough out on a cutting board to about ¼-inch thickness and form 2 equal-size circles.

Cut each circle like a pizza, making triangle shapes of a desired size (I got 6 out of each circle). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place the triangles on the baking sheet. Season with a little more pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon, if desired.

Put the baking sheet inside a larger baking sheet to prevent the bottoms from cooking too fast. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of one of the scones comes out clean, for 15-18 minutes.

Remove from the oven and set on a cooling rack. Enjoy!

Pumpkin Shopping Tip

Look for vegetables that are firm and bright in color – avoid those that are wilted or have wrinkled skins, which are signs of age.

Pumpkin Cooking Tip

Vegetable should typically be cooked as quickly as possible, as they can become bland and mushy, and lose vitamins and minerals.
