This recipe is the perfect addition to your breakfast or could be used with your after dinner coffee. Filled with sourdough starter, these Einkorn Pumpkin Streusel Scones are nutrient rich and oh so satisfying. We’ve had many at our house since the cold weather started.
Pumpkin Streusel Scones From Start to finish
Pie pumpkins were one of those things I specifically chose to grow in the garden for a certain task. That task was fall and winter baking. I love when pumpkin “everything” comes out in the coffee shops and bakeries but to be honest, I love it so much better fresh! If you’ve been following this blog, you might know that this recipe is in the new EINKORN FOR A COZY WINTER eBOOK! If you haven’t, check out the eBook. It’s full of my favorite comfort foods for the holidays and winter. I won’t be sharing many of those recipes on the blog so this is a special day for you!
When November comes, I’m itching to get out all the Christmas stuff. If Thanksgiving passes and no twinkle lights are up, I feel behind. It’s funny that we think of the holiday season as winter, but in reality, the biggest portion is in Autumn. It isn’t until a few days before Christmas that the winter season actually starts (perhaps that’s why it can feel so long!). In light of this I feel it is even more important to keep up on the pumpkin recipes. Scones, bread, cookies: bring it on!
I love this scone as a breakfast but really anytime will do. Don’t serve it without the cream cheese frosting. It is the encore. the two flavors compliment each other perfectly.
If you haven’t heard of the amazing einkorn flour, check out THIS blog post. In short, it is the oldest form of wheat that hasn’t been hybridized known to man. Einkorn digests much more easily and can actually be enjoyed by many who are sensitive to gluten. Vitamins and minerals are plenty. This Chart shows a comparison of nutrition benefits between einkorn and several other types of wheat. Speaking of nutrition, einkorn also holds the antioxidants through the baking process better than other forms of wheat as shown in this study. Though this wheat is so old, the studies are just beginning and each one proves it to be the best at giving nutrition as the human body needs
