Eureka!….

I think I have it! 

I think the second time is going to be the “charm”! I found this recipe at FatFree Vegan Kitchen, tweaked and played and have come up with what I think is a winning version of Pumpkin Pie! It is not overly sweet, but that is what I prefer. Serve with Vanilla Coconut Milk Ice Cream sprinkled with a dash of cinnamon and you just might be in heaven!

Pumpkin Pie #2
(Gluten-Free, Vegan, Sugar-Free)


Ingredients:

  • 3 Medjool Dates, soaked 3-5 hours in filtered water
  • 1 1/2 cups So Delicious Coconut Milk Creamer
  • 2 Flax Eggs (1 Tblsp Flax Meal + 3 Tblsp Hot Water = 1 large Egg)
  • 1 Tblsp Cornstarch
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 can Organic Pumpkin Puree
  • 1/2 cup Gluten-Free Flour Blend (I used Amy’s blend)
  • 2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Vanilla Liquid Stevia
  • 1/4 tsp Ginger
  • 1/4 tsp Ground Cloves
  • 1/2 tsp Nutmeg
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp Sea Salt

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Spray a glass pie plate with non-stick cooking spray.
  3. Place soaked, pitted dates in a food processor and process until a date paste is formed. Set aside,
  4. Place creamer, flax eggs, starch, and vanilla in a blender and process until smooth.
  5. Add pumpkin and process to combine.
  6. Add remaining ingredients (including the date paste) and pulse to combine. Then, process on high about 2 minutes.
  7. Pour into prepared pie plate.
  8. Bake about 1 hour.
  9. Allow to cool completely before slicing.
  10. For best results, refrigerate over night before serving.
On an entirely unrelated note….

    1. Yum! Yum! Yum! I was looking for a delicious gluten-free pumpkin pie recipe! I can only imagine how creamy it must be using So Delicious coconut milk creamer.Gorgeous flowers, too!

    2. this sounds like a yummy tasting recipe, but it really does not look like pumpkin pie to me! How much does it taste like it? Also, we can't have flax so it would be 2 eggs for us? Thx!
