Halloween is JUST around the corner, and I thought I would take a little inspo from my USA girls and create a pumpkin pie from scratch that's both healthy and delicious that you can share with your family or friends! 

Healthy Pumpkin Pie Recipe

Prep time: 15 mins

Cook time: 60 mins

Total time: 75 mins
Serves: 8 (makes a 9-inch pie)
Dietary preferences: Vegetarian

Ingredients:

Pie Crust:

  • 1 cup raw walnut halves
  • 1 cup raw pecan nuts
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 3 tbsp of coconut oil, melted
  • 3 tbsp buckwheat flour


Pumpkin Pie Filling:

  • 2 cups homemade pureed pumpkin
  • 3 eggs + 1 egg yolk, lightly beaten
  • 1 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground cloves
  • ½ tsp fresh ginger, grated
  • 2 tbsp raw honey
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • ½ cup almond or rice milk

 

Method:

1. Preheat the oven to 175C/350F.
2. Place the walnuts and pecan nuts in a food processor and process until coarsely ground. Add the maple syrup, coconut oil and buckwheat flour and pulse until the mixture is well combined and comes together to form a crumble.
3. Place the mixture into a greased 9-inch pie pan and press the crust into the bottom and sides of the pie pan. Pierce the base of the crust with a fork,  every ½ inch or so to prevent the crust from rising up as it cooks.
4. Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until the crust is just starting to brown. Remove from the oven and leave to cool for about 5 minutes.
5. While the crust is baking prepare the pie filling. Add all the ingredients together in a large bowl and mix until well combined.
6. Pour the filling into the prepared pie crust and smooth the filling out evenly with a spatula. Bake for 40-45 minutes, or until the filling has set and the crust is nicely browned.
7. Leave to cool slightly on a wire rack and serve warm or at room temperature.

Hope you enjoy this healthy pumpkin pie girls!
