After two attempts at a gluten-free pumpkin pie I found one that I am in love with! This recipe is in response to the Thanksgiving recipe requests I took from my Instagram followers. Many of you asked for pumpkin pie and several of you asked for gluten-free recipes so I accommodated both 🙂
Let’s face it besides a turkey, which us vegans choose to skip on ;), a pumpkin pie is a Thanksgiving staple! Normally, pumpkin pie is made with eggs, milk, and a lot of cream. Not to mention all of the processed sugar!
This pie is free of all of that. I used maple syrup to sweeten my pie but you could use any liquid sweetener you prefer.
The first pie I made didn’t become thick and remained a little bit liquidy. This pie is very thick and smooth. The consistency is perfect and the almond flour crust is a great accent taste to the pumpkin flavor.
I hope you all enjoy this recipe and the Green Bean Casserole and Gluten Free stuffing are hopefully going to be posted within the week.. Stay tuned!
