I have found myself making scones a lot. There are several reasons why I love scones.
- They are soooo easy and fast to make
- They impress guests
- You can make them sweet, or savory
- They go perfect with coffee and tea
I have been making many different variations of scones, most recently my Almond Joy Scones. I have some more in the works for the blog, so stay tuned.
Pumpkin Scones with Maple Glaze
These gluten free and dairy free pumpkin scones are one of the first scone recipes I developed. There is something about these sweet and flaky biscuits that really just make my day.

You will absolutely love these with my Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer recipe. If your girlfriends are coming over for coffee then they will be thoroughly impressed with your pumpkin themed coffee hour and they are so easy that you can throw both together quickly.
I just redid this post along with the photographs and my gluten-full father was over while I was taking photos. He is one the pickiest adults I’ve known. He loved these and even took some to go. That means something!
How do I make these Gluten Free and Dairy Free Pumpkin Scones with Maple Glaze?
You are going to need to start with a high quality Gluten Free All Purpose Flour Blend. I always recommend that you use my Gluten Free All Purpose Flour recipe. However, if you want a store bought flour the only flour blend that I recommend is Better Batter. I have been using their flour for over a year now and I recommend it more than my own blend. If you want to purchase Better Batter for yourself you can use the code: livingfreelygf for 30% off your entire purchase. The code livingfreelygf10 will get you 10% off sale items too!
You will then add the milk, eggs, vanilla, pumpkin. Stir well and add the coconut oil last. Preheat the oven to 350 deg F.
Blend with a wooden spoon until you begin to form a ball of dough. It will be slightly sticky, you want that.
Shape it and use wet fingers or a wet spatula if needed.
Dip your knife in water and then cut the scones. Pull them apart to be spaced at least 1 inch apart for baking.
While the scones are baking you will make the glaze by sifting the powder sugar and then adding all of the ingredients. Stir until all of the sugar is dissolved. Drizzle generously on the scones once they have cooled for about 20 minutes.

Gluten Free and Dairy Free Pumpkin Scones with Maple Glaze
These lightly sweetened pumpkin scones are drizzled with the perfect amount of maple glaze. They are moist, yet crumby at the same time.
- 3 Cups Gluten Free All Purpose Flour Blend
- Dash of Salt
- 1/3 Cup melted Coconut Oil
- 1/3 Cup Sugar
- 2 tsp. Baking Powder
- 2/3 Cup Almond or Coconut Milk
- 2 Eggs
- 2 tsp. Vanilla
- 2/3 Cup Pumpkin puree
- 1 tsp. Xanthan Gum
- 1 Cup Powder Sugar sifted
- 1 tsp. Vanilla
- ¼ tsp. Cinnamon
- Dash of Nutmeg
- 1 tsp. Pure Maple Extract
- 2 TBSP. Coconut Milk
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Mix all of the dry ingredients in a large bowl.
Add the pumpkin puree, vanilla, eggs, coconut milk, and coconut oil.
Once the dough forms a ball (it will be slightly sticky), take the dough and transfer it to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
With the spatula, push the dough down and spread it out to be about an inch or so thick. (Dip the knife in water before cutting each slice) Slice into 8 even slices. Space each triangle an inch apart and you can shape the edges of your scones with wet fingers if needed.
Bake for 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Allow to cool for about 20 minutes and then transfer to a flat plate or cooling rack. (I learned this the hard way with one batch and they broke when I transferred them).
While they are cooling, make your glaze by simply stirring all of the ingredients together in a bowl until smooth. I recommend sifting the powdered sugar.
Drizzle or smother your scones to your liking. These taste amazing fresh out of the oven and even better with a cup of pumpkin spice coffee. Enjoy!

I love the step by step photos! I’ve never made scones because it always seems so daunting (I tend to go off book when baking haha). I’m ready for pumpkin season to start so I can make these.
Thank you Carmy. I avoided scones for a long time too, but they are so easy!
I’ve always been too intimidated to make scones. Thank you for your step by step directions with such clear photos. I love anything pumpkin so I’m definitely ready to give scones a try.
OMG I am such a pumpkin fanatic. I do not want summer to end…but OH so excited about pumpkin season. These look and sound delicious…and I know my GF friends would LOVE these when they visit.
I’m not sure I’m ready for pumpkin yet, because I haven’t had my summer vacation yet lol. BUT as soon as I get back from vaca, I’ll be all over these. I love love love pumpkin scones! Yours look so easy!
Thank you Sarah! I am getting prepared for the fun pumpkin season. Enjoy your vacation.
My husband won’t eat pumpkin pie, but he loves pumpkin breads and muffins, so I know your tempting scones will be well received. Great step-by-step photos too. I can’t believe you’ve made them gluten free and dairy free too — my Aunt has celiac, so she’s sensitive to gluten, she’s going to appreciate this one!
Thank you Lisa! Your husband and Aunt will enjoy these.
First of all, I love your thorough step-by-step photos. THAT is dedication 😉
Second, these look SO good. I’ve only ever made savory scones, but my husband is a pumpkin spice fanatic. Definitely going to surprise him with these bad boys soon.
Thank you for the step by step so that even I couldn’t mess up the recipe! 😛 Also, what a great idea – a pumpkin themed get together! Love it and love these scones!
Thank you Tracy!
What delicious looking scones! I love that they’re gluten free. I’m going to be hosting a ladies’ coffee this fall, and I know that a few of my guests aren’t able to have gluten. These will be the perfect festive treat! Pumpkin and maple is such a great combination, too. These are getting me in the mood for fall!
Thanks Amanda! Your friends will love them!
Made these today and they are lovely, received well by all including ‘gluten eaters’. I have never seen scones with a glaze before so I left it off and they are still delicious and plenty sweet enough.
Oh and I also forgot to say I used a cookie cutter to cut them into rounds as that’s how we make them in Australia and they cooked perfect
That’s the big test, if the “gluten eaters” will like it! We put glaze on a lot of scones here in the U.S. because we eat WAY too much sugar, lol. I like my scones less sweet as well along with some tea. I’m glad everyone is enjoying them.
These pumpkin scones look amazing! I’m so excited for fall treats, can’t wait to make these!!
Just made the scones to enjoy with tea while watching Outlander. These were very quick and easy to make and taste delicious. My gluten-eating husband loves them as much as I do. I will be making this recipe often.
Thank you so much for sharing Christine. I am so glad you are both enjoying them and they are so yummy with a cup of tea. Enjoy!
