Pumpkin Spiced Scones

Scones are one of my favourite baked goods but I have been struggling to find a recipe that I love. This is definitely a contender. Fresh pumpkin puree make these scones extra moist. If you like strong pumpkin flavour, I would consider doubling the pumpkin spice and will be trying this myself next time. 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds make go well in this recipe too, if like me, you enjoy a little crunch in your scones. If you don’t have quinoa flour handy, simply substitute whole wheat flour.
