This recipe is from my fitness friend Jill Coleman.  She posted the recipe on her blog (www.jillfit.com).  I made them and they turned out great!  Worth a try!

Makes 24 scones

Ingredients:
2 cups almond flour
1 15 oz can pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling)
4 scoops whey protein powder (preferably unflavored, plain vanilla or cinnamon roll)
2/3 cup old fashioned oatmeal
½ cup erythritol or splenda (could also use 6-8 packets stevia, or 1/2 c NuNaturals Stevia Baking Blend)
4 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 tbsp cinnamon
½ cup liquid egg whites

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl.  Place 1-inch wide scones on PAM-sprayed baking sheets.  Bake 20-25 minutes (be sure not to overcook or they may dry out)
