This pumpkin pie even got the thumbs up from my girls.  They both wanted to eat it before I had a chance to take photos!  Just for the record, they claim to not like pumpkin. :)  For the crust, I decided to use a recipe from Elena’s Pantry.  Because, why mess with perfection?  Her crust recipe is amazing and so simple. I hope you enjoy this pumpkin pie recipe as much as we enjoyed eating it.

Grain Free Pumpkin Pie



    For the crust
  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • In a food processor, mix the flour and salt. Then add in the egg and coconut oil and mix until a dough starts to form.
  • Once the dough forms, press it into a greased glass pie dish. I used a 9 inch. Bake it in the oven for about 9-11 minutes.
  • For the filling
  • In a food processor, blend all the filling ingredients until smooth.
  • Pour into baked pie crust and bake in the oven at 350 for about 50-60 minutes.

When mine was done cooling, it still felt slightly loose, so I put it in the fridge and it completely firmed up. That worked out great. I think that arrowroot is just a tad less stable than cornstarch. However, it is free of GMOs and that’s why I used it over cornstarch. Enjoy!

  1. Did you have to cover the crust at all during cooking? I recently made a pie with almond flour crust and the crust was burnt after about an hour of cooking. It was my first experience baking with almond flour for the crust, so I’m not sure what went wrong.

  2. I used tapioca starch instead of the arrowroot and agave nectar instead of maple syrup and it came out great! so flavorful! Thank you very much!

  3. I made this pie for Thanksgiving and it was delicious. I didn’t have almond flour, so I used oat flour. Thank you Melissa for all your wonderful recipes!

  4. I finally made this today. I was a little intimated due to my last experience with almond flour as a crust. I love everything pumpkin and have been disappointed in the recipes I’ve found. But this was awesome!!! It was a huge hit with family and I’m ecstatic to have a vegan, GF, soy free pumpkin pie! Thank you Melissa!

  5. I used almond meal ( from the last time I made almond milk), and the crust turned out just fine. I also subbed arrowroot with corn starch, and the corn starch holds the pie together very nicely. The biggest upset I had with this pie was that I baked it for 50 minutes and it turned out brown…is that because of the maple sugar? Also, the flavor was quite nutty, so if you aren’t a big nut fan you may want to try a different crust style…or add more sweetener.

    1. I didn’t notice mine turned brown. Glad to know that almond pulp worked in the crust! :) I hope you at least enjoyed the recipe.

  6. this looks delish! can i store it in fridge or freezer? if so, how long? would like to prepare ahead of serving time ! thanks

  7. Everyone loved this last year! Now I need to make it but free, plus I’d like it to be gluten free. Do you think oat flour would work in the crust?

  8. I made this pumpkin pie yesterday and my hubby and I both think it’s the best pumpkin pie we’ve ever had!! And yet so easy to make. Thank you for the great recipe!!

  9. I made this pie for Thanksgiving (except with a healthier version of a family crust recipe), and it was a BIG hit!!! I LOVED it and love that it is SO much healthier than “traditional” pumpkin pie recipes. Making it again today for Christmas Eve dinner! Thank you so much!!

  10. can I substitute the nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger and cloves for pumpkin pie spice??.. If so, what would the measurement be… Thanks..

    1. Yes you can. I am not sure how much though. Maybe add a little and taste test until you get the flavoring you are looking for?
