Pumpkin Pie Recipe

November 14, 2012 by Roxanne | Filed under Grain-Free & Gluten-Free, Healthy Recipes.

Pumpkin Pie is one of the requirements at our Thanksgiving table. My husband loves it so much I make it several times even before Thanksgiving arrives. Over the years of experimenting this recipe has been updated and refined so it turns out very well. This recipe is grain-free and dairy-free and if you didn’t know that before trying it you probably wouldn’t notice a difference. The crust is made with almond flour instead of a traditional white flour crust and the cow’s milk has been replaced with coconut milk. The coconut milk works very well and makes this pie very creamy.

For a pie recipe, this one is relatively quick to make. I put this one together in less then an hour including the crust.

Pumpkin Pie

Crust

  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all ingredients together and press into a 9″ pie plate. Bake for 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Let cool before filling. While the crust is in the oven, mix together the filling.

Filling

  • 2 cups pumpkin
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • ¾ cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • ½ tsp allspice
  • Pinch cloves
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 425°. Mix together all ingredients with a mixer or a whisk until blended well. Pour the filling batter into the pre-baked pie crust. Bake in oven for 15 minutes at 425° then reduce temperature to 350° and bake for 40 to 50 minutes or until knife inserted near center comes out clean.

    Just in the midst of making your pumpkin pie and I’m having issues with the crust. Are your measurements correct? I had to add a cup plus of almond flour to get the mixture thick enough to form into a crust. Just a note for future users.
