During the holidays, I love all things pumpkin. What I don’t love is all the sugar these pumpkin treats contain. That is why I am obsessed with this gluten-free, grain-free pumpkin pie that also happens to be 100% processed-sugar-free and guilt-free! Because it’s made from 100% whole food ingredients, all packed with amazing nutritional benefits, you don’t have to restrict yourself from dishing up seconds.
This recipe can also easily be made vegan by swapping out the eggs for flax eggs. Flax eggs can be made by combining 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed with 3 tablespoons water. Let sit for 5 minutes, allowing it to turn into an “egg,” before adding to your recipe. This pumpkin die recipe is so delicious, I can promise that your non-health-nut friends and family members won’t taste the difference!
