{Note from Jessica: Today’s post is shared by my sweet friend Renee, author of Raising Generation Nourished. We became friends several years ago and I am continually impressed with her desire to help change the world, starting with our newest generation. Real food has to be core of our health and should start in the womb. Considering this is the first time in history that our children are expected to die before us, something HAS to change. I’m honored to call her a friend. I hope you’ll stop by her site, Raising Generation Nourished, and say hello!}

I know, I know…pumpkin everything this time of year, right???

It is only October and my kitchen has already been dishing out bowls and bowls of pumpkin soup, and dinner time sides of pumpkin mashes with loads of butter!

You really can do so much with this wonderful squash – even if you are on a grain free diet. It gives wonderful moisture to otherwise dry grain free flours like coconut flour. And acts as a binder so you don’t have to use a load of eggs. This means you can swap the egg for a gelatin egg if you are egg free! Learn how to make a gelatin egg here.

It really doesn’t get any better than the spices of the fall. They give these scones warmth that goes perfectly on a crisp autumn morning.

Delicious Obsessions Trusted Product Recommendations for Pumpkin Scones

I am always asked about my favorite ingredients and what I use in my own kitchen. I have linked to the products from my affiliate partners that I personally use and recommend. And now, here are the special coupon offers that select affiliate partners are currently offering:

  • Thrive Market: If you sign up through this link, you will get 15% OFF your first order.
  • Amazon, of course, has everything you need for this recipe. Their prices are often very good, though I love to shop around and sometimes find that Thrive Market has better deals. If you like saving money, it’s good to shop around! 🙂
  • I get all of my herbs and spices from Mountain Rose Herbs. I have tried so many other brands and have never found the quality, flavor, and aroma to be as good as the herbs I get from Mountain Rose.

Important Note On Gelatin Types 

When it comes to gelatin, you don’t want any old gelatin off the supermarket shelves. You want to look for 100% grass-fed gelatin from healthy animals. Just like other animal products, quality is important.

That is why I recommend Vital Proteins Grass-Fed Gelatin products and Perfect Supplements products exclusively. I have compared these brand with other brands on the market and the quality far surpasses anything else I’ve tried. I am thrilled to be one of their affiliate partners and support such great products and companies.

Perfect Supplements offers a grass-fed hydrolyzed collagen (cold-soluble) right now and has a gelatin (hot-soluble) in the works for 2016. Read my review of their product here or watch the video below. You can order their own products via their own site here or on Amazon here.

Vital Proteins offers two types of gelatin. The green top (Collagen Protein) is what you need for this recipe and for recipes where you are making gummies, “jello”, etc. The blue top (Collagen Peptides) is cold water soluble and does not thicken or gel like gelatin does. Both are very nutritious, but can’t be used interchangeably. You can order their own products via their own site here or on Amazon here.

Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Everything into a medium mixing bowl and combine - I start with a spatula and finish with my hands.
  2. Form the dough into a 1 - 1½ inch disk on a silpat or parchment paper lined baking sheet and use a butter knife to cut like a pie into 8 pieces.
  3. Brush the top with melted butter and sprinkle with sucanat (or organic pure cane sugar). This is optional but so good!
  4. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. The tops will be nice and crispy with the sucanat/butter topping! Leftovers will get soft in a container but you can crisp them back up in the oven to warm.
