Healthy Pumpkin Pie Recipe (Makes 8 servings, Prep Time: 15 minutes, Total Time: 50 minutes)

Crust

  • 4 Graham Cracker Sheets (100% whole wheat preferably)
  • 1/2 cup Quick Cooking Oats
  • 1 Tablespoons Coconut Oil
  • 2 Tablespoon Butter (I used Greek Yogurt Butter by Ilios)
  • 1 Tablespoon Honey
  • 1 Teaspoon Pumpkin Pie Spice

Filling

  • 1 cup Pumpkin Puree (canned)
  • 3/4 cup of Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 tablespoon Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • 1/4 cup Agave Nectar (can be substituted for Honey, Maple Syrup or Sugar)

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Combine all crust ingredients in a blender or food processor. Dump into a pie dish and press down firmly into the edges of the pan. Cook in the over for 10 minutes. Let cool completely. Combine all filling ingredients. Blend well until it is a smooth like consistency. Pour into crust. Cook on high at 425 for 5-7 minutes. Turn heat down to 350 for another 20-25 minutes or until filling set. Let cool before you cut and serve. Top with a little whip cream if you like. Makes 8 servings.

Yum, this looks great. I made crust-less pumpkin pie the other day, but my bf prefers s crust so I will give this one a try!

Looks good, I’m gonna make it this weekend! I can’t find Graham Crackers in Belgium so I thought about using Digestives.. Would that work? And how many would I need?

I have no idea what digestives are! You can use any prepared pie crust if you like.

I really want to make this but I’m trying to find a substitute for the coconut oil ( my amazon delivery is late) and the butter, are there any healthier alternatives to that? I don’t have the excuse of going all out for Thanksgiving I’m just bored and want some pie.

you can use a vegan butter like Smart Spread? Or even almond butter.
