Crisp fall air always fills me with a sense of excitement. I feel warm and cozy as October rolls around. I enjoy being able to pull out my jeans, long sleeved shirts and socks again. Watching leaves change color thrills me. I feel like a little kid again, wanting to rake up leaves just to jump in the colorful pile.
In autumn I start to envision all the delightful fall time treats to make featuring pumpkin and squash. I love the fragrant smell that wafts through the house.
One of my fall favorites is a pumpkin scone. Gone are the days of refined sugar, refined white four and fake treats. These scones call for soaking your flour, making it more digestible, using an unrefined sugar and grass fed butter. When you bite into one you would never know that they are almost good for you! The bold spices mingle with the pumpkin making a delicious slightly sweet treat. They are perfect paired with aPumpkin Pie Latte or Chai Roobios.
