Autumn is just beautiful, why? Because there are just so many great things to harvest. Starting with Apples , pears, walnuts, to the pumpkin. You can really do a lot with that, too. One thing that I particularly love is. Pumpkin puree , because it’s easy to make, has super flavor, and is especially handy when things need to go fast. That’s when I got the idea for the pumpkin scones. Actually, the first time I ate this delicious, sweet temptation was in a coffee chain in the US. Very tasty, but also not very healthy. That’s why I tried to make the treat as healthy as possible. Let’s get started!
Pumpkin Scones with Frosting – Lets Go
My favorite pumpkin? Clearly the Hokkaido because it has a juicy, low-fiber flesh and tastes nutty-aromatic. Almost a bit like chestnuts! The ingredients are also impressive, as the pumpkin owes its orange-red color to its high beta carotene content. Our body builds this in combination with fat to vitamin A, which in turn strengthens our eyesight in particular. Little tip! Be sure to eat the peel, because it contains plenty of B & C vitamins, as well as folic acid, magnesium and iron.
Vegan into autumn with pumpkin … Yummy!
Let’s move on to the dough. Fine spelt flour (or gluten free flour mix ), almond flour, baking soda, apple cider vinegar, baking powder, walnuts, raw cane sugar, pumpkin spice, sea salt, almond milk, margarine, pumpkin puree and a touch of vanilla. The good news is that the dough uses very little fat or oil and is still super fluffy and flavorful.
Topped with a frosting of powdered sugar, maple syrup and a dash of Almond milk . Ready! Let’s go to the coffee party, I’d say.
Vegan Pumpkin Fun
You may be asking yourself why I don’t use an egg substitute in this recipe. Egg substitute in this recipe. The pumpkin puree has excellent binding properties, so this is quite enough. You can make the pumpkin puree either in a well-stocked organic store, online or best of all yourself.
What goes with the scones? Definitely a hot drink, for example a cappucchino with almond milk, a delicious chai latte or hot chocolate . Ahhh, I have a picture of my couch in my head right now with a thick blanket, scones and chocolate. What more could you want?
We summarize: The scones take just 35 minutes, including prep time, and make do with a handful of ingredients. 1 bowls, 1 baking sheet and go!
