Paleo Pumpkin Pie – Gluten free!

Hey guys. Today’s recipe is a nice kick off to the Halloween/fall season. Pumpkins are cheap and plentiful, so…pumpkin pie time!

This does require a bit of preparation, but it’s pretty simple.

You will need:

  • 1 pie shell, made the crust from this recipe. I actually skipped the coconut flour in this one though.

Filling:

  • 1 kabocha pumpkin/squash, roasted in large pieces then scooped out. Discard skins/seed. Approximately 4 cups when mashed.
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 2 T maple syrup
  • 1 T nutmeg powder
  • 1 t cinnamon powder
  • 1 T ginger powder
  • 2 eggs

Step one:

Preheat oven to 350.

Set aside your crust to cool. You can make it with side or without – I choose to make it cheesecake style with no crust, and used a springform pan.

Step two:

Blend the pumpkin until smooth. Add the other filling ingredients, blend until well mixed. Pour into/over pie shell.

Bake for 40-50 mins, or until knife comes out mostly clean. Set aside to cool, pie will firm up further over 15-20mins.

Serve with whipped coconut cream. Enjoy.

I’m gonna go curl up in something warm, it’s freezing!

    sounds good :-) I don’t usually use a crust when I make pumpkin pie… I just cook the filling…

      I’m wondering if it’d make a good pudding now. It sorta has the consistency of baked custard.
