Cinnamon Pumpkin Scones

My recipes are grain free, refined sugar free and many are dairy free. Do you suffer from food allergies? Do you not eat grains? Are you gluten free? Welcome to my blog where there are no grain, no refined sugar, and limited dairy.  I am like the rest of the world and love to eat tasty and decadent food. When I first changed my diet I won’t lie I was a little depressed as I thought I was going to have a very bland and unappetizing diet. I decide to be proactive and started doing research. Then started experimenting. Much to my surprise, I found I had a knack (or inspiration from above) for making tasty food within my dietary limits.

We have two puppies. Yes, two. I know I am crazy. They are about a month apart and share the same dad but of course have different mother’s. Well, they were sick last week so I gave them some pumpkin. Our puppies names are Denver who is a male Mini Australian Shepherd, and Quinn who is a female Mini Australian Shepherd. I love the Australian Shepherd breed. They are so smart, loving and protective. What would we do without our animals in our lives?

So I had leftover pumpkin in my fridge that I wanted to use up and not waste. I love scones for breakfast. I also love the flavor of cinnamon with pumpkin. I used to make a recipe that used regular flour that I revamped to be grain free. With fall coming here in America there seem to be lots of pumpkin goodies and coffees everywhere. So perhaps this is the first of other pumpkin recipes for me and my blog.

Thanks for visiting or following my blog! I appreciate you! Have a wonderful day/night where ever you may be!

Cut scones. I cut several sizes as sometimes I want a small one and sometimes I want a big one. Space the scones slightly apart so they cook all the way through.

Place scones in preheated oven bake for 15 – 20 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool.
