After two attempts at a gluten-free pumpkin pie I found one that I am in love with! This recipe is in response to the Thanksgiving recipe requests I took from my Instagram followers. Many of you asked for pumpkin pie and several of you asked for gluten-free recipes so I accommodated both ? Let’s face it besides a turkey, which us vegans choose to skip on ;), a pumpkin pie is a Thanksgiving staple! Normally, pumpkin pie is made with eggs, milk, and a lot of cream. Not to mention all of the processed sugar! This pie is free of all of that. I used maple syrup to sweeten my pie but you could use any liquid sweetener you prefer. The first pie I made didn’t become thick and remained a little bit liquidy. This pie is very thick and smooth. The consistency is perfect and the almond flour crust is a great accent taste to the pumpkin flavor.

I’ve been living around the world for several years now. I’ve already experienced the oriental lifestyle of China, vibrant culture of Barcelona, shabby to chic of Paris, Confucian ways of the Korea peninsula (South, not North of course) and now the easy-going vibe of Los Angeles. I’m an advocate of the minimalist lifestyle because I love being able to pack up my things and go in a moment’s notice. I’ve found a great work, life, and spiritual balance that’s ideal for me.

    This design is incredible! You most certainly know how to keep a reader entertained.
    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my
    own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Excellent job. I really loved
    what you had to say, and more than that, how you
    presented it. Too cool!

    Hi Kirstie.
    Firstly, may I say how much I love your recipes. They are all so wonderful!! Thank you for sharing them with the world.
    I would love to try this Pumpkin Pie recipe, however I have never seen “Pumpkin Puree” sold here in Australia. Could I substitute it with actual pureed steamed pumpkin, or would that have too much moisture?
    Any tips would be very much appreciated.
    Thanks again, Belinda

      Thank you so much! You could definitely substitute it for steamed pumpkin! That is basically the same thing. Just whizz it through a blender real quick to make it a nice smooth consistency!
