Grain Free and Dairy Free Crust for Pumpkin Pie

In this gluten-free pumpkin pie recipe, the crust is made without grains or dairy. Instead, the flaky crust comes from almond flour, healthy cassava flour, coconut oil or dairy-free butter, and a light sprinkle of sugar and cinnamon.




Grain-Free Dairy-Free Pumpkin Pie Recipe Overview

The coconut milk adds extra creaminess to the velvety Pumpkin Pie filling. I also added healthy molasses, giving the pumpkin filling richness and beautiful caramel colour. 

As with most pumpkin pie recipes, the spices are cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg. I have also doubled up on the vanilla. 

I can’t tell you how delicious this pumpkin pie turned out. It is the molasses and extra vanilla that made this pie insanely tasty.

The filling is super light and creamy. And I promise you would never know that this gluten-free pumpkin pie is dairy-free.

The easiest grain-free pie crust – ever!

What I love about this pumpkin pie is its simplicity. Anyone can make this pie recipe into a perfect dairy-free pumpkin pie. For the grain-free crust, all you do is place the ingredients into a food processor, pulse to form a soft dough and then chill.

When ready, press the dough into the pie dish with your fingers. No rolling of the dough – no mess – and the crust is perfect.

First, for the dairy-free pumpkin filling, you beat the eggs with sugar, add the remaining ingredients, and briskly whisk everything together.

Before you pour the filling into the crust, you need to partially pre-bake the crust. By baking the crust first, it will stay buttery and not soggy.

you can’t rush the pumpkin pie recipe

If you want a silky gluten-free pumpkin pie with a perfect crust, there are a few things to keep in mind.

First, the pie crust dough has to be chilled, the crust has to be partially baked before adding the filling.

The filling is slowly baked so that it doesn’t crack.

Then, it becomes more like a delicious pumpkin custard. You will have a few extra steps but a perfect and incredibly delicious Pumpkin Pie without grains and dairy. Emile Henry Made In France HR Modern Classics Pie Dish, 9” Blue

I always bake two pies to ensure there is plenty of Pumpkin Pie to go around.

If you have any leftovers, cover the pie with plastic wrap and keep it in the fridge. The pie will keep for up to five days when refrigerated. Do not add the whipped cream until ready to serve the pie.

This year is the first time I got my brother to try a slice because he doesn’t like pumpkins. He commented, oh wow, I wish I had tried this pumpkin pie before. It is so delicious 🙂 And he had a second slice.

It was the molasses and double vanilla that made the big difference. I hope you enjoy this Pumpkin Pie, and if you celebrate the holidays, Happy Holidays to your family from our home to yours.
