This Pumpkin Scone recipe is my all-time favourite! Fall is also my favourite time of year. The outdoors become a canvas giving off a sense of new beginnings and peace. The trees start changing into a beautiful array of autumn colours and for whatever reason the sky even looks better in the evenings.

I also love fall fashion. I get to wear layers, jeans, boots and scarfs. It’s safe to say I could live in the fall season for a while. That’s not all I love about the fall. In fact, those aren’t even my favourite parts.

My absolute favourite part of the fall are the treats. A perfect day for me is dressing up in my leather jacket and brown boots to head outside for a walk with my beautiful daughter, Milia. I would enjoy the gorgeous pallet of reds, oranges, yellows and browns and even stop at my favourite local coffee shop and pick up a pumpkin spice latte paired with a pumpkin scone. Sounds pretty good, right?

The only problem is that I’m a fitness professional. I have to look good. Not only do I have to look good, I want to look good and these pumpkin treats are not benefitting me. Luckily, during my many hours at home with Milia I had a thought run through my mind, ‘why can’t I make my own treats?’ Fact is; I can’t take her outside just because I have a craving. It was like a light bulb came on in my head. I instantly began to think of healthy substitutes for the ingredients in my fall favourites.

This recipe will blow your mind.

    Can I substitute something else for butter? Husband has allergy to dairy. Thanks

      I’m sure you can substitute with coconut oil coz most recipes that use butter say you can substitute with coconut oil as well.

  • Stacia Brooks says:

    What brand of stevia do you use for this? I have some Steviva pure stevia, but half a cup of that seems like a ton. I appreciate your time, thank you

    These were delicious! Not quite a dry scone texture, but maybe because I didn’t cook them enough. WOW, am going to make another batch today. Wonderful recipe!
