Makes 6 scones

  1. Pre-heat oven to 400F.

  3. Add in the dry ingredients and stir thoroughly.
  4. Pour in the almond milk and pumpkin puree and mix the ingredients into a dough.
  5. Knead the dough until everything is combined well.
  6. On a large flat surface, roll out the dough into a circular shape. Place a sheet of parchment paper and roll out the dough to about 1/2″ with a rolling pin.
  7. Slice the dough into 6 equal pieces.
  8. Place the scone slices onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 18-20 minutes.
