Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Whole Wheat Scones: No Sugar Added

 

Pumpkin pie flavor in a flaky, tasty scone with or without chocolate chips! A little indulgent yes, wonderful on occasions, yes again! A few more calories and fat than I normally post, but well worth it my friends, your family will love these!

 

 

This recipe is a little adaption from my Clean Eating Strawberry scones. I’ve eliminated the sucanat sweetener all together so these are simple with stevia. If you don’t have stevia then go ahead and use the 1 cup of sucanat like in the strawberry scone recipe.

 

 

Mix up the dough, flatten as above, use an oiled pizza slicer to make 8 triangles then separate with a spatula, easy peasy. And they bake in only about 15-20 minutes!

 

 

My family LOVED these! I think your will too!

  1. I was wondering if liquid chocolate stevia or even the vanilla liquid would work in this receipe. If so, what would be the measurement adjustment?

    • you could use either and may need anywhere from 4-6 teaspoons. 4 would be only slightly sweet, my guessitmate anyway.

  2. Could you please tell me where you are finding the “Grain sweetened” chocolate chips. I used to buy Sunspree brand at my local Whole Foods but they no longer have them. I contacted the manufacturer and they said they are out of stock but that was over 6 month’s ago!

    • I had bought quite a few bags from Whole Foods. They are out of stock apparently but should be back on shelves in Dec 2012. Another great option I’ve used and like is carob chips sweetened with brown rice syrup found at Whole Foods as well.

    I am looking forward to trying this recipe. May I use honey instead of stevia?

    • yes you could, about 1/2 cup.

        Well, I don’t think that worked out so well, substituting the honey for the stevia. The dough was like cookie dough! I couldn’t knead it or shape it. Put it in a loaf pan and will try to salvage it as pumpkin chocolate chip bread! Maybe the honey made it too moist? Still looking forward to eating it though; it sure looks yummy. Just curious of your thoughts on the honey thing.

        • sorry about that, maybe 1/2 cup of honey was too much, hope you could salvage it. In my strawberry scones I used about 1/4 cup honey and they were delicious.

          • I also substituted the stevia but with sugar and the dough turned out the same way. Then I realized ‘pure pumpkin’. I pureed my pumpkin before adding it to the recipe and I’m certain this was the issue. Thanks to these comments, we also made it into pumpkin chocolate chip bread! :)

  4. Tried this…couldn’t get the dough to be firm….it was sticky and runny. I added flour, but the dough still didn’t take shape.

  5. I made these tonight with coconut oil instead of butter and they turned out wonderfully! Thanks, I just love your site!
