Paleo Pumpkin Pie

Monday, November 25, 2013

I think I found my pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving. With some "real" whipped cream and stevia sweetner, I am set!

Paleo Pumpkin Pie
1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin puree (or 1½ cup homemade pumpkin puree)
3 eggs
½ cup coconut milk
⅓ cup honey
1 teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon nutmeg
1 Paleo Pie Crust, unbaked

In a food processor combine pumpkin puree, and eggs
Pulse in coconut milk, honey, cinnamon, and nutmeg
Pour filling into Paleo Pie Crust
Bake at 350° for 45 minutes
Allow to cool then refrigerate for 2 hours to set up

Makes 1 pie

For this Paleo Pumpkin Pie recipe, be sure to use the 23 cm (9 inch) pie dish. My crust looks so pretty because I pressed the Paleo Pie Crust dough up over the edges of the pie dish and then made little indentations with a fork. When I baked the Paleo Pumpkin Pie I covered the crust edge with a pie crust protector.

Paleo Pie Crustprinter friendly

2 cups blanched almond flour
¼ teaspoon celtic sea salt
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 egg

Place flour and salt in food processor and pulse briefly
Add coconut oil and egg and pulse until mixture forms a ball
Press dough into a 9-inch pie dish
Bake at 350° for 8-12 minutes

Makes 1 pie crust

This recipe is based on my Gluten Free Tart Crust Recipe. I took the time to retest it in a 9-inch pie dish to double check that it would work.

If you wish to use this almond flour pie crust for a pie that requires baking, simply do not pre-bake it. Load it up with your filling and bake according to the recipe of your choice, or until your pie is all the way cooked through. What do you think you’ll put in this Paleo Pie Crust? Fruit filling, cream filling, quiche –or something else altogether?

    No like I said I get the unsweetened. They have different colored cartons and you have to read which one. They are out of the unsweetened at times, it is so popular. I don't have one in the frig right now as we're out of town so I can't read the label but it's clean. The only inconvenience is it's in a half gallon carton in the refrigerator. My Zumba teacher told me about it, she is off sugar and fake sugar etc. We started getting it and love it.

    This looks great! The pumpkin filling seems like it would be nice baked as a custard (in cups with no crust) I am a coconut milk hound. Trader Joe's has an unsweetened half gallon in their refrigerator section and is my favorite. Thanks for sharing the recipes. emoticon
