Gluten Free Pumpkin Pie
photo by recipe author

Servings: 8
Preparation Time: 1 hour

Crust 

  • 1 cup almond flour*
  • 1/2 cup arrowroot starch
  • 1/4 cup tapioca starch
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons palm shortening or butter
  • 1/4 cup cold water (more or less as needed)

Filling

Whipped topping

  • 14 oz full-fat coconut milk**
  • 1 teaspoon honey

Preheat oven to 350 degrees ºF.

In a mixing bowl, combine dry ingredients for crust. Add in palm shortening and blend until a coarse crumble is created. Slowly add in cold water, just until a dough ball begins to form.

On a piece of wax or parchment paper, place dough. Top dough with another piece of wax or parchment paper and roll dough out in a circle about 1/4" thick. Place dough in a 9" pie plate and form edges of crust. Pierce with fork and bake for about 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, combine raw nuts and water in a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth. Add in pumpkin puree (see note below) and remaining ingredients. Blend until smooth or about 45 seconds, scrapping sides if necessary.

Pour filling into pie shell and bake for about 45-60 minutes until top starts to brown and filling is set. If necessary, cover pie with foil to prevent over browning. Let pie cool completely and store in fridge.

In a small blender, pulse together coconut milk and honey until whipped. Store whipped coconut in fridge until ready to serve.

To make pumpkin puree:
Steam pumpkin. I used small pie pumpkins. Cut them in half and scrape out seeds. Don't discard seeds! (Use in other recipes). Place the pumpkin halves cut-side down in a large baking dish.

Pour about 1/4 cup of water in dish. Bake at 350 ºF for about 30-40 minutes or until soft.

*You can grind your own almond flour by placing whole almonds in a blender/food processor and blending until you get a fine meal.

Servings: 5
Preparation Time: 20 minutes

For the whipped cream:

Whisk all ingredients except the pumpkin, coconut cream concentrate and coffee together in a large bowl until thoroughly mixed. Add the pumpkin puree and coconut cream concentrate, blend until smooth with a stick blender (or in your regular blender). Pour into ice cube trays. Freeze until firm or overnight.

Once your pumpkin cubes have frozen, place 10-12 cubes in a blender and pour 1 cup of chilled coffee over the cubes. Blend just until all the big chunks are gone. The length of time you blend will determine the consistency of your drink.

Pour into a cup and top with some delicious homemade coconut whipped cream (directions below), and some cinnamon and flaked coconut for a garnish!

For the whipped cream:

Pour the cream into a glass bowl and whip with a hand mixer until the cream begins to thicken. Add the maple syrup and then whip until stiff peaks form. Add the vanilla extract and the shredded coconut and mix until just combined.

*For the freshest coconut milk make homemade coconut milk. (See video at this link.)

BATTER

TOPPING

GLAZE

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees ºF. Generously butter a 9x13" pan. 

Prepare the batter by combining the flours, salt, and baking powder in a large mixing bowl. Make a well in these ingredients and add in the honey, milk, eggs, and vanilla extract. Whisk these together and slowly begin incorporating the surrounding dry ingredients. When these are partially mixed together, pour in the melted coconut oil. Stir together just until combined. Scrape the batter out into prepared 9x13" pan.

Prepare the topping by combining the butter and honey together in a small saucepan. Put this over low heat and allow them to melt together. Remove from heat and stir in coconut flour and cinnamon.

Scoop the topping on top of the batter into even piles and then use a butter knife to swirl this roughly into the batter. This will be a little messy and may not swirl perfectly but it will all incorporate during baking.

Place cake in oven and bake for 30-35 minutes, or until center is just barely set when a toothpick or knife is inserted.

Remove and allow to cool to room temperature.

Prepare glaze by creaming together all ingredients with a fork. Spread this thinly over cake. Slice and serve.
