Happy Friday y’all! What better way to celebrate a fall weekend then whipping up a decadent fall inspired treat. That’s what I did last weekend and plan to do most weekends this fall. Are you with me? If so, this chocolate chip scone with pumpkin granola recipe is for you. With a hint of pumpkin and cinnamon these scones are the perfect breakfast, snack, or late night treat for your fall weekend {or weekday if you’re anything like me}. 

Monday, I shared a bunch of pumpkin goodies from Trader Joe’s. Including which ones I felt you needed to try! The pumpkin granola in these scones was {still is} one of those items. You can read my full review on the granola here. Since this pumpkin granola is sooooo good, I wanted to find ways to incorporate it in more than just my morning yogurt or a bowl of milk. That’s where these scones come in. Have you ever made scones? I hadn’t before, these were my very first go and when I had realized I never made the tasty treat before, I decided they would be my guinea pig recipe for adding the pumpkin granola. Luckily, they turned out pretty great!

Maybe this is just me but for some reason, I had the idea in my mind that scones were really hard to make. My friends, that is not the case. They’re actually very, very easy! If you haven’t made them before, I highly recommend you give them a try. I’m pretty sure you’ll be amazed at home simple they are. 

Anyways, back this recipe…I will say that these scones turned out a little lighter, more cake like then scones I’ve had from bakeries before. Not a bad thing though, at least in my book. I love the lighter feel of them {as I’m writing this, I’m currently eating one} and how that allows you to taste all of the goodness inside of them. You’re able to taste the hint of the cinnamon, pumpkin, and also the sweet mini chocolate chips. As a tip, if you like cinnamon, add a little more. I definitely plan to next time around. 

If you aren’t sure about the granola maybe switch it out for walnuts or cranberries. This recipe could absolutely be used as a base recipe and you could easily play around with the extras you add in. Have fun with it and enjoy y’all! Also, if you do whip them up or find a new variation you love, please comment below with it! I’d love to hear what you think of them and also what variations I should try.
