Truth be told, I don’t love pumpkin pie. I know, the horror.

It’s an American classic, a Thanksgiving tradition, all of that. But I’d just much rather eat a chocolate cream pie, which is what I make for myself on Thanksgiving. Yes, I make pumpkin pie for all the pumpkin lovers, and make a chocolate pie basically for myself. Just kidding. Sort of.

But even I like this pumpkin pie. I like the creaminess from the coconut milk, I like that it doesn’t taste like a bucket of sugar was added and overall I like knowing that I’m not going to develop diabetes from eating it. Especially if I have more than one slice. Which, let’s be honest, I will.

Pie Crust:

Combine all ingredients until smooth and a dough is formed. I like to blend in a food processor so it becomes very fine. Press evenly into a pie pan. No need to bake first.

Pie Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. You can either blend in a blender/food processor or beat all ingredients by hand. Make sure there are no lumps.
  2. Bake on 350 for about 50 minutes, or until the center is set.
  3. Top with with whipped cream!

      Oh my goodness, I used a deceptively large (from the picture) pan to bake mine, a tall springform pan. I totally forgot to make a note of that. I’m so sorry! But you can totally pour the filling into baking safe cups or dishes to make crustless pie! Again, sorry about that and please don’t hate me!

    Sounds wonderful! Could you show measurements (ounces or cups) for those of use who make our own pumpkin puree? Coconut milk, too please 🙂
    Thanks!

    This looks delicious! Will try it. I don’t know if you remember, but a few weeks ago you shared a TEDx talk clip with me of Teri Wahls. Thanks to you I am giving the Wahls Protocol a try! As a former vegan it’s been a bit of a rough re-entry, (the slower digestion is making it hard for me to eat the quantity of veggies I used to, but I think I just need to get used to it) but I believe I will reap health benefits that will make the change worth it. Thanks for opening my mind!

      This comment makes me so happy I could cry! I immediately took a picture of it and sent it to my fiancé. So many people have had success with the protocol Terry Wahls outlines and I’m sure you’ll be one of them. If you ever have any questions, need recipes or just want to chat let me know!

    This recipe looks amazing! I’m not completely Paleo, so I’d like to replace coconut milk with Heavy whipping cream. Would that work?

    Any suggestions for a different flour?? Both my mom and I cannot have almond but are gluten free, nightshade free and are looking for a recipe to fit our needs!

  5. Tiffany

    Do you have a recommendation for substituting almond flour? My daughter has an almond allergy but I’m hoping to make this for thanksgiving!??

    i just made this and it turned out beautifully except the filling separated from the crust by about 1/8″. Is there any way to prevent that from happening? Tastes great, but it doesn’t look as pretty.

      Sorry about that! I’m not sure why that happens for some people. For me it always sticks but when baking there’s so many factors, even oven temperatures (set at the same temp), altitude, etc.

    You don’t get diabetes
    From eating sugar, please don’t reference a disease that you don’t understand anything about. My son is insulin dependent, it is an autoimmune
    Disease, he didn’t get it from sugar. So rude

    Made this for my family for Thanksgiving! It was pretty good and I really enjoyed getting to make something paleo/healthy as I don’t really cook much myself. I also used a 8 1/2 inch pan and there was a little batter left over but not much. It worked pretty well.
    Thanks for sharing!
