Maple Pumpkin Scones

These scones are soft and moist, with melding flavours of pumpkin, cinnamon, and maple. The maple glaze is the perfect amount of sweetness. I also learned you can make powdered sugar at home. Just whirl white sugar in a coffee grinder for 10 seconds, and you’ll get powdered sugar. Maple Pumpkin Scones Ingredients 2 cups […]

Vegan Carrot and Banana Muffins

Cinnamon and Vanilla Baked Oatmeal
