Sugar-Free For You and Me….

As promised, here is another “Holiday Head-Start” recipe! November is Diabetes Awareness Month, which I find to be rather ironic due to the gross amounts of sugar and carbs consumed over the holidays. Be that as it may, I have taken it upon myself to develop a Gluten-Free, Vegan, Sugar-Free Pie recipe that can be enjoyed by all. This is the first pre-mutation. I am not 100% satisfied with it yet. It still has a bit of a Stevia aftertaste. I think I know what can be done to rectify that situation. Until then, here is Attempt Number One. Any suggestions are welcome!

Pumpkin Pie (Take One!)
(Gluten-Free, Vegan, Sugar-Free)
Serves 8

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups Vanilla Hemp Milk
  • 2 Tblsp Flax Seed Meal
  • 1/4 cup Water
  • 1 Tblsp Cornstarch
  • 1 can Pumpkin Puree
  • 1/4 cup Coconut Flour
  • 2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 3/4 tsp Vanilla Creme Liquid Stevia
  • 1/4 tsp Ginger
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp Nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ground Cloves
  • 1/2 tsp Salt

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Spray a glass pie plate with non-stick cooking spray.

  4. Add the remaining ingredients and blend about 2 minutes.
  5. Pour into prepared pie plate and bake about 1 hour until edges are lightly browned.
  6. Allow to cool completely on the counter.
  7. Refrigerate over night before serving.

  1. You could back off on the stevia and use some honey but then you would loose the vegan status. I get the vegan issue but come one people, without managed honey bees we would loose over 1/3 of our food source and that includes all those vegan friendly staples.

  2. Sounds delicious! I love the addition of coconut flour. I'll def. have to make this for Thanksgiving as I haven't been sitting well with gluten and I stay away from sugar.

  3. Great recipe! I have to do a Store Tour soon on creating a healthier Thanksgiving meal. I was looking for a good sugar-free recipe, but this is even better since it's also vegan! I wonder if people will go for it….hmmm. Well I think the key is to not tell anyone that it is SF and/or vegan. That way they won't go into it with negative thoughts. I bet it tastes great.
