Pumpkin pie is definitely a fall favorite, whether forimg_1107 Thanksgiving, Christmas, or just to enjoy some pumpkin fun. If you have food allergies though, it can be hard to find something that fills your craving for pumpkin pie without wheat, gluten, dairy, or a number of other ingredients. Even if you don’t need to avoid these foods for allergy reasons, you might be looking for a way to satisfy the craving without so much sugar, and with some added protein and fiber.

With the leaves changing and crisp morning air, we felt inspired this weekend to step in the test kitchen – and I’m so glad we did because we created this mouthwatering, allergy-friendly pumpkin pie.  It is incredibly delicious – and the crust does not get any easier than this.  We guarantee everyone will be asking for your recipe over the holidays. This will be a guilty pleasure no longer, but one of your new family favorites. All the goodness of pumpkin pie, with the added layer of chocolatey flavor!

  1. Lightly grease a 9 inch pie pan with coconut oil.

Recipe Notes

Top your pie with freshly whipped coconut cream - and enjoy!


Pumpkin Pie Spice Blend*

We are all about making things easier, but most of the time, store bought pumpkin pie spice just falls short, which is why we like to make our own! This recipe makes a lot, so you can save it and use it over and over again.

All of these spices are pre ground, but you of course can grind them yourself to make it even fresher.

What you'll need:

  • 2 Tbs cinnamon
  • 3 tsp ginger (dried)
  • 1.5 tsp allspice
  • 3/4 tsp cloves

Stir all the above spices together until very well combined.

You will only use 1 tablespoon of this mixture in this recipe, so you will have plenty leftover. You could even double the recipe and make some cute DIY holiday gifts too - who wouldn't like getting homemade pumpkin pie spice!


Roasted Pumpkin Puree**

As we mentioned with the pumpkin pie spice, some things are just better you make them yourself. But we get that everyone is busy, so you can use canned pumpkin, but trust me when I say this will take your pie to the next level!

What you'll need:

  • 2 sweet pumpkin pie pumpkins* (they are usually small, so you'll probably need 2)
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt and Pepper

Preheat oven to 450 degrees

Slice pumpkins in half, scrape out all the gooey insides, and place on a baking sheet.  Drizzle with olive oil, and generously sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Roast until pumpkins are golden brown and fragrant.

Let the pumpkins cool completely before removing the skin.

* Even though this is called pumpkin pie, I actually prefer sweet meet squash over the pumpkins.  It can be hard to find at the grocery store, but if you're lucky and can find it, give it a try.

Enjoy! And once you try the recipe, be sure to share a photo with us on Facebook or Instagram!
