Whole Wheat Pumpkin Scones

Miss Adventures in Running - Whole Wheat Pumpkin SconesI absolutely love fall! I love sweaters and boots, but more importantly I love fall food! I practically love anything apple or pumpkin flavored! While all these treats are delicious, I also like to try and keep things at least slightly healthy! With this recipe, I tried to lighten up a personal favorite…pumpkins scones!
