These scones are just the right balance of pumpkin flavor. Not heavily pumpkin flavored, and with a warm hint of maple flavor, making these a decadent and satisfying breakfast for the family.
Making scones keto-fied can be somewhat of a challenge. Without the use of a gluten type of flour, the dough can tend to be more delicate to work with. Xanthan gum is extremely important in gluten-free recipes as it acts like gluten would and gives the texture more of a chewy bite. If you don’t have xanthan gum or choose not to use it, you can swap it with guar gum or arrowroot powder.
It’s also essential to allow them to cool for at least 10-15 minutes out of the oven so they will be less likely to crumble. Using a combination of almond flour and a bit of coconut flour provides a nice dense texture typical of a traditional scone.
