The most perfect gluten-free pumpkin pie is here right in time for the holidays! It has a grain-free crust made from almond flour and cassava flour, and has all the flavors of traditional pumpkin pie, in its own delicious dairy-free way.
To be honest, I was never a pumpkin pie fan growing up. I loved all things apples during the fall, and would always choose apple pie over pumpkin any day of the week.
But, I decided to step out of my comfort zone and test a recipe I never have before- pie crust. Gluten-free pie crust to be exact.
It took a little bit of trial and error, but i’m so happy with how this crust turned out! It would be perfect for sweet or savory fillings, and best of all-doesn’t require any freezing or rolling!
The filling is made from a mixture of pumpkin puree, pure maple syrup, coconut cream, almond milk, and all the pumpkin pie spices. It’s silky and smooth, and truly tastes like fall in one bite.
How to make gluten-free pumpkin pie
- You start by prepping the crust and baking it for 10 minutes. The crust is super easy to work with, and just needs to be flattened into your pie dish.
- Once that bakes, you prepare your pumpkin filling. When the crust is ready, you fill it with your filling and bake it for 1 hour.
- After an hour, you need to let the pie cool for at least two hours, as it will continue to set while it sits.
- Once it’s completely cooled, slice into it and enjoy it with some whipped cream!
There isn’t a lot of hands on work, which is what makes this recipe so simple!
Some tips for making your pie:
- You can prep the pie a day in advance, and refrigerate it after cooling it so it will continue to set. One less thing to worry about the day of the big meal!
- You can prepare the crust ahead of time and freeze it before you bake it, to save you some time.
- If you don’t need a gluten-free crust, feel free to use a store-bought frozen crust and just prepare the filling yourself!
