Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Scones

Sharing is caring!

Good for breakfast, snacks, or afternoon coffee, these Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Scones make the perfect Fall treat in the colder weather!

Seeing as how it’s now Fall, I have to bring you a pumpkin recipe. You probably didn’t know this, but I’m kind of obsessed with everything pumpkin; and I’ve been enjoying something pumpkin-related at least once or twice a day for the past couple weeks.

I made these Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Scones over the weekend for a party, and the leftovers didn’t last very long once they got home.

If you have a Kitchen Aid mixer, these are super easy to make! I used the mixer for the dry ingredients, then as I was struggling to stir the dough together I was like wait… I have a mixer for a reason. So that basically cut my effort in half.

And usually I flatten out the dough to cut it into triangles; but this time, I used a circular cutter (AKA an empty tuna can) to make them look more like cookies, and they turned out pretty well!

These scones are amazing for breakfasts or snacks; best enjoyed with a cup of hot coffee. They’re nice and soft, unlike some of the crumbly scones I’ve tried. Make these for your next holiday get-together!

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Scones

Yield: 12-13 scones


  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 3/4 cup canned pumpkin
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips (I used dark)


  1. In a mixing bowl, mix together the flour, oats, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves, and salt. Cut in the butter until the mixture becomes crumbly.
  2. In a separate bowl, stir together the canned pumpkin, milk, egg, and vanilla extract. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir until just mixed. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  3. On a floured surface, knead the mixture a few times and push flat with your hands. Using a circular cutter, cut the dough into at least 12 circles (You may get 13). Place each scone on a greased cookie sheet.
  4. Bake at 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes until the edges are just starting to turn brown.
