‘Tis the season for all things pumpkin, right? That’s why for this month’s Scone of the Month recipe, we’re going with Gluten Free Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Scones. They’re delicious, with just the perfect hint of pumpkin and cinnamon mixed in with chocolate chips. Mmm…
Growing up, especially during fall, my mom would make the most delicious pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. They were buttery soft and the perfect combination of pumpkin and chocolate, while still having the cookie base. As I’ve been making a list of all the new scone flavors we want to try, this tasty combination was at the top of my list. I wanted to recreate one of my favorite cookies into a delicious scone!
If this is your first time here, I might as well tell you that scones are one of our very favorite foods… we’re slightly obsessed with them and they’re a weekly staple we love to have ready for breakfast on the weekends, but also throughout the week. Nearly every weekend I whip up a batch and have plenty of fun playing around with new flavor combinations that keep us coming back for more. Just because we’re gluten free, doesn’t mean we can’t still have the tender scones I’ve always loved!
Last month I explained why I love the Namaste Scone Mix. It’s absolutely the best mix or scone base I’ve found, and I’ve tried plenty to know. Until I can come up with something as equally amazing, I’m committed to this mix. It’s that good. And if you’re not gluten free, I’d be hard pressed to say you can taste the difference… my family still can’t believe it!
For this recipe, I wanted a nice mild pumpkin flavor, but if you want it to be stronger, you can certainly cut back on the amount of milk you add, and increase the amount of canned pumpkin. The subtle addition of cinnamon adds another layer of flavor, and the glaze on top has a little thicker consistency than my Apple Pie Scones from last month.
We’ve been loving this flavor, and our guests have too! I hope you enjoy them as well! Yum!
