Easy, Healthy, Gluten free Pumpkin Pie!

What is Thanksgiving without pumpkin pie, right?
Well, after looking at several recipes online, it was discouraging to see so many with a ton of questionable, unhealthy ingredients & loads of sugar!
So I decided that I was going to make a healthy pumpkin pie with no gluten, dairy, or refined sugar.

Pie Filling Ingredients:

2 eggs
1 (15 oz) can of pure pumpkin 
6 packets of stevia
2/3 cup organic honey
3 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1 capful gluten free vanilla
1 can coconut milk ( full fat, organic)( I used Thai Kitchen)

Preheat oven to 400.
Beat eggs lightly, then add all remaining ingredients including pumpkin. Mix thoroughly.

Add coconut milk & blend lightly until mixed in.

Pour into unbaked pie crust. Bake for 55 min or until done.

Pie Crust Ingredients:

1 cup of Brown Rice flour
1/2 cup of Garabanzo/Fava Bean Flour 
( I used Bob's Red Mill for both my flours)
** Pretty much any gluten free flours would work, I just like how the flavor turned out with this mix!
1 packet stevia
1/2 tsp  sea salt
1/2 cup earth balance

Mix together all ingredients except the earth balance ( in food processor)
Add in earth balance and pulse until it is lump looking.
Add in 1/3 cup water and mix until it becomes a dough.

Remove the dough and roll out into pie pan.

Coconut "Whipped Topping":

Leave one can of coconut milk in the fridge for several hours.
Drain out the excess liquid.
In a chilled bowl add the coconut ( thick part), 1 capful of gluten free vanilla, and 1 packet of stevia. 
Whip until resembles whipped topping.


Be Happy Healthy and Strong,


Warning: Whipped topping contains coconut, do not make if you are allergic to coconut.
