Pumpkin Cranberry Scones

So first off I have to apologize for not posting as often as I would like but life is just a crazy whirlwind right now and I am doing everything I can to keep you guys stocked with plenty of recipes.  I have a few in the queue to get typed up as well as some pretty good giveaways in line for you.  Thank you to each and everyone for sticking around and showing me the love while I’m busy.  I have my first cross fit competition this saturday since starting to cross fit again so we shall see how bad I get my ass handed to me, but its cool cause it’s all about getting better and Ill bring myself plenty of my own Paleo treats to make me feel better.  Plus I will be with awesome company with all my Homeys from Crossfit Inland Valley so it’s due to be a good time regardless, even in the crappy rain.  Wish me luck.

Alright.  Now on a serious note…………Stacy from the amazing blog Paleo Parents was kind enough to send me a recipe from their upcoming book Eat Like a Dinosaur and if the rest of the recipes are as simple and delicious as this Maple Butternut Squash Puree:

Do yourself a favor, and go preorder the book HERE because just this Puree is worth the price, never mind the rest of the recipes.  Plus, you can teach your kids with it and they will be cooking you dinner in no time ;).

Serves: 12
  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees fahrenheit
  2. Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and knead together with your hands
  3. Press your dough out on a cutting board to about 1/4 inch thickness and form two equal size circles
  4. Cut them like a pizza to the size you want (I got 6 out of each circle)
  5. Put the scones on a parchment lined baking sheet
  6. Sprinkle with a little more pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon (optional)
  7. Put your baking sheet inside a larger baking sheet to prevent the bottoms from cooking too fast

  10. Enjoy

  1. We love all things pumpkin and, I’ve made these twice now and we like them very much. Super quick and easy.
    Two of my subs:
    For both batches I used plump organic dried cherries from a local rancher (instead of cranberries, since it’s hard to find unsweetened cranberries), sliced in half to be about the size of dried cranberries.
    For the second batch I used a duck egg and I got better rise than the first batch. But the dough was a little stickier to work with, so if I use duck again I’ll bump up the almond flour a bit during kneading.
    Many thanks for sharing this tasty recipe!

  2. Never made scones before. In fact, I am a lousy baker. However the instructions for this are very user friendly. I am nit sure how they are supposed to come out but they were a bit bitter. I had opened a new can of baking powder and it was clumpy. So, I’m blaming the baking powder. Is there a suggested brand of aluminum free baking powder?

  3. oh thank you! it’s my turn to bring the brunch-y snacks to my women’s bible study this week and I think this may be the winner!

  4. I just put that book on my amazon.com wish list! :)

    And yes, Happy Veteran's Day, George! :D

    (My uncle was a Marine, BTW. He's passed on now, but I have his Parris Island pics–makes me very proud to be his niece.)

  5. Just had to let you know that these are terrific!! Now, my only problem is going to be keeping myself from eating them all at once. LOL!!

  6. SO GOOD! I just spread them on the cookie sheet like cookies since my dough was a bit too sticky and thin. They turned out FANTASTIC!! Will be making them again AND AGAIN!

  7. Pattyg I am so happy to hear that. I have about 4 other scone recipes on my site so you should try them too. My other favorites are my cranberry orange scones.

    Leanne thank you so much and I am so glad you found me too :) I hope you enjoy and stick around for a while :)

  8. I've been going through your site for about a week now and I just cannot get enough?! I'm so happy I found you through pinterest. I'm a new to the scene paleo and am absolutely loving the results of this diet. Thanks for all of your fabulous recipes, including these scones, my gosh they look amazing.

  9. Scones are my absolute non-paleo sin, so I am SO excited about this recipe!And I'm a little obsessed with pumpkin right now, too!
