Its been a bumper year for pumpkin and squash recipes here on Sneaky Veg.

Over the last few weeks Ive published new recipes for:

I think Ive proved to the world that I love pumpkin, that you can make delicious vegan food using pumpkin or squash and that its a really versatile vegetable.

Although strictly speaking pumpkin is actually a fruit. Confusing!

These vegan pumpkin muffins are one of my favourite new pumpkin recipes and the kids certainly agreed. I tested a sweet and savoury version. The sweet was their preferred one no surprises there! But I thought the savoury one was great too.

How difficult are pumpkin scones to make?

These pumpkin scones are easy to make.

The first step is to rub the flour and dairy free spread together with your finger tips until you have the consistency of breadcrumbs. If you prefer you can do this with a food processor*. However, I find that with dairy free spread (as opposed to butter) it works better with my finger tips.

After this stage its simply a case of mixing together the rest of the ingredients into a dough, rolling out and cutting into scone shapes before baking.

What should you serve with pumpkin scones?

I think that these vegan scones are delicious served with just a little dairy free spread. When theyre warm they are delicious on their own too.

However, you may like to serve the sweet version with some:

  • jam
  • crme frache (Oatly do a great vegan version)
  • peanut butter
  • fruit compote.

The savoury version goes well with:

  • cream cheese
  • vegan cheese eg cashew cheese
  • soup.

What ingredients do you need to make pumpkin scones?

You need the following ingredients to make the sweet version of these scones:

  • wholemeal flour (or plain)
  • baking powder
  • dairy free spread
  • butternut squash or pumpkin puree (tinned or homemade)
  • dairy free milk
  • ground cinnamon
  • sultanas, optional (the ones in the photographs are sultana-free)

How do you make these pumpkin scones savoury instead of sweet?

Follow the recipe below but leave out the sultanas and the ground cinnamon.

You can add 1 tbsp nutritional yeast* if you like to give the scones a slightly cheesy, savoury flavour. This is optional however. Salt and pepper is also a good addition to your savoury scones.
