Gluten Free Pumpkin Pecan Scones

  • Author: Natalie Way
  • Yield: 8 1x


  • 1 cup raw pecans
  • 1 3/4 cups bobs red mill 1 to 1 gluten free baking flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ginger spice
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp tsp cloves
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup cold refrigerated organic vegetable shortening cut into small chunks
  • 3/4 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1 tsp coconut milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla

Maple Glaze

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • pinch sea salt
  • 1 tbsp melted coconut oil
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 cup organic maple syrup add more if needed


  1. Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Place the nuts on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  3. Bake the nuts for about 3-4 minutes, then chop up very fine.
  4. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the flour, 3/4 of the chopped nuts, baking powder, sugar, spices, salt, and mix together.
  5. Now cut your cold shortening into the flour.
  6. Stir in the canned pumpkin, egg , coconut milk, and the vanilla extract. Knead together until just combined ( dough will be sticky ) you will still see some small butter chunks ( don’t over mix otherwise the scones will be chewy ).
  7. Form dough into a circle thats about an inch deep.
  8. Freeze dough for 20 minutes.
  9. Now take out of the freezer and cut the circle into 8 different slices ( I just used a pizza cutter, knife will work fine also ).
  10. Place the 8 slices evenly onto the parchment paper, and bake for 12 -14 minutes.
  11. Let cool completely when done.
  12. While the scones are baking whisk together the glaze ingredients until creamy.
  13. Drizzle glaze over scones once they are done cooling.
  14. Top with remaining pecans.
  15. Enjoy!


Make sure your shortening is cold, this is a crucial step. I usually put my shortening in the fridge the night before so I don’t forget.
