Gin­ger Pump­kin Scones

A pros­per­ous hol­i­day break­fast

For me, food, real­ly good food, is an essen­tial part of my pros­per­i­ty.  I love to cook and this blog post con­tains one of my favorite win­ter recipes, Pump­kin Gin­ger Scones. They are gluten free, because I am gluten free, but don’t wor­ry, you won’t know the gluten is miss­ing.

Here is the recipe:

 

2 T Gin­ger, grat­ed

1 c Rolled Oats

1 ½ c pota­to starch

2 T Psyl­li­um flakes

1 T Chia seeds

½ t Nut­meg

2 t Bak­ing Pow­der

½ t Salt

7 T cold but­ter, cut into small pieces

1 egg

½ c plain yogurt or Kefir

2 T Milk

½ c Pump­kin

½ t Vanil­la

3 T Maple Syrup

½ c chopped pecans

 

Pre­heat the oven to 425 degrees.

Grate the gin­ger.  Whisk the dry ingre­di­ents togeth­er, whisk­ing the gin­ger in last. Cut the but­ter in with your fin­gers, two knives or a food proces­sor until course crumbs are formed. Beat the egg with the yogurt, milk, pump­kin, vanil­la and maple syrup. Stir into the dough. Fold in the pecans.

Scoop the dough, in the size you want your scones. onto a greased bak­ing sheet. Bake until nice­ly browned, 15 to 18 min­utes. Serve warm.  For extra
deca­dence, serve with more but­ter and maple syrup.  Enjoy.
