Buttermilk-soaked Pumpkin Scones


Lightly sweetened and studded with spice and pumpkin puree, these scones are perfect for fall. Soaking them in buttermilk gives them a nutritional boost by breaking down the harder-to-digest grains before baking.


  • 2½ cups whole wheat flour
  • 6 tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces
  • ⅓ cup buttermilk
  • ⅔ cup pumpkin puree
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ⅓ cup coconut sugar or granulated sweetener of choice
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder


  1. Cut butter into flour. Mix in buttermilk and pumpkin puree, kneading just enough to moisten the dry ingredients. Cover and leave in a warm place for 12-24 hours.
  2. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 425°F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Combine the salt, coconut sugar, pumpkin pie spice, and baking powder in a small bowl with a fork. Sprinkle mixture over the soaked dough and knead for just a minute over a floured surface.
  4. Pat the dough out into a 1-inch thick circle. Cut into 8 triangles (like a pizza) and place on parchment-lined cookie sheet.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 10-15 minutes.
