About this recipe

Vegan pumpkin scones are a delightful treat that captures the essence of autumn in every bite. These scones are made without any animal products, making them suitable for those following a vegan lifestyle. They are a perfect blend of moist and flaky, with a subtle sweetness and warm spices that complement the pumpkin flavor.

Fall flavors for the win

Fall flavors are a delightful combination of warm, comforting, and earthy tastes that evoke feelings of coziness and nostalgia. These flavors are often associated with the changing leaves, crisp air, and harvest season. Here are some popular fall flavors that are cherished during this time of the year:

Pumpkin: Pumpkin is a beloved flavor in the fall, often found in pies, lattes, soups, and bread. Its rich, creamy, slightly sweet taste adds depth and warmth to any recipe.

Cinnamon: Cinnamon is such a versatile spice that adds a warm and aromatic flavor to fall dishes. It can be found in various fall treats, such as apple pies, spiced cider, and even savory dishes like roasted vegetables. The sweet and spicy notes of cinnamon complement the season perfectly!

Apple: Apples are at their peak during the fall, and their crisp, juicy, and slightly tart flavor is a favorite in pies, crisps, and caramel apples. The aroma of baked apples and cinnamon fills the air, creating a cozy and comforting atmosphere.

Nutmeg: Nutmeg is a warm and earthy spice that is often paired with other fall flavors like pumpkin and apple. Its distinct flavor adds depth to baked goods, hot beverages, and even savory dishes like roasted squash.

Maple: Maple syrup is a staple in fall cooking and baking. Its rich and sweet flavor lends itself well to pancakes, waffles, oatmeal, and even glazes for roasted vegetables or meats. The deep, caramel-like taste of maple syrup adds a touch of indulgence to fall dishes.

Ginger: Ginger adds a spicy and warming element to fall flavors. Its slightly sweet and pungent taste is commonly used in gingerbread, spiced cookies, and chai tea. Ginger provides a comforting and invigorating sensation, perfect for cooler days.

Ingredients for the vegan scones

  • All-purpose flour, you could use whole wheat flour, but the texture of the scones may be a bit dense.
  • Baking powder
  • Pumpkin pie species, see notes in the recipe card or use storebought. Make sure it is fresh, and the smell is amazing.
  • Coconut oil, substitute with any vegetable oil of your choice.
  • Pumpkin puree, you can use homemade or store bought.
  • Vegetable milk, I like to use almond milk or oat milk.
  • Maple syrup, make sure it is Maple syrup and not corn syrup.

MAPLE GLAZE

  • Powdered sugar, make sure you sift it before using.
  • Coconut oil
  • Maple syrup
  • Pumpkin pie spices
  • Chopped walnuts, to top the pumpkin scones. If you are allergic to nuts, sprinkle brown sugar on top.

How to make classic vegan pumpkin scones

  • In a large bowl, whisk your dry ingredients: the flour, baking powder, spices, and salt.
  • Add the wet ingredients: coconut oil, pumpkin puree, milk, and maple syrup. Mix well.
  • Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat. Add the scone dough and form a 1 1/2 -2 inch thick disk.
  • With a chef’s spatula or a large knife, divide the dough disc into eight wedges.
  • Bake for 18-20 minutes or until you insert a toothpick and it comes out clean.

Prepare the scone glaze

  • Prepare the glaze by mixing confectioners’ sugar, maple honey, and spices in a bowl. If the mixture is too thick, add water one teaspoon at a time.
  • Remove the scones from the oven and let them cool on a wire rack for about 5 minutes. Drizzle the icing on top of the scones and sprinkle with the chopped walnuts.

Tips for the best scones

  • Starbucks: These scones are inspired by Starbucks’ Pumpkin Scones
  • Do not over-mix: Vegan scones are super easy to prepare; the only trick is not to over-mix the dough.
  • Puree: I use pumpkin puree from Amazon but normally make it at home.
  • Form the scone. Make one circle with the dough and then slice into 8 wedges or make 8 different ones. I like to form a disk with the vegan scone dough and then cut it into 8 pieces.
  • About the glaze. The maple syrup glaze is the best; if you love maple syrup, you should also try these vegan banana doughnuts with maple glaze.

I have always loved scones. They are soft, flavorful and sweet but not super sweet. I love them so much that I have tons of vegan scones recipes, like these with blueberries, these with strawberries and a chocolate chip scone recipe.
