How To Make Gluten Dairy-Free Pumpkin Pie
If you’ve never made a healthy pumpkin pie before, you’ll be happy to know it needs just a few easy swaps form a regular one. It has a creamy filling with lots of pumpkin flavor and the most perfect flaky crust.
Here’s how to make paleo pumpkin pie:
- Make the paleo pie crust. Here is the full paleo pie crust recipe.
TIP: Be sure to use a shallow 9-inch pie pan. I used a slightly larger one for the photos here and you may notice the filling does not go up very high. Still delicious, but use the right size if you want it to look like a typical one.
- Mix together the pumpkin pie filling. Mix together the pumpkin puree, coconut cream, eggs, coconut sugar, pumpkin pie spice, sea salt, vanilla, and blackstrap molasses.
TIP: Don’t mix the pumpkin filling too much. It should be creamy and smooth.
- Add filling to the crust. After the crust has cooled, add in the paleo pie filling.
TIP: Tap the pie pan on the counter to get rid of any air bubbles.
- Bake. It’s done when the center is almost set, but still a bit jiggly.
TIP: If the crust starts to brown too much, tent it with aluminum foil.
- Chill. Let the pie cool completely on the counter, then chill for an hour to set.

Meanwhile, beat together all remaining ingredients at medium-low speed, until smooth. (Don't overmix.)
When the pie crust is done baking, reduce the oven temperature to 325 degrees F (163 degrees C). Cool the crust on the counter for at least 10 minutes, longer if you have time.
Pour the filling into the crust. Gently tap on the counter to release air bubbles.
Bake for 40-50 minutes, until the pie is almost set but still slightly jiggly in the center. (Check on it occasionally, and if you see the crust start to brown, cover the crust edge with foil and return to the oven until the filling is done. It should still jiggle a bit in the center, like a custard before it sets.)
Cool completely on the counter, then refrigerate at least an hour before slicing. Pie can be refrigerated overnight.
