Homemade Pumpkin Pie (Grain-free/Dairy-free option)

I hope you had a nice Thanksgiving yesterday and indulged in your favorite healthy (or maybe not-so healthy) meals. 

I made this pumpkin pie by combining two different recipes. One for the crust and one for the pie filling. It came out very tasty. The only thing I should of done better with, was letting it cook longer. I followed the time that was said in the directions, but the pie filling still wasn’t completely done cooking, so it was a little wobbly. To try and fix that, I placed it in the freezer for about 20-30 minutes, and then transferred it to the fridge. It became much more firm after that.

The only things I changed with the pie filling recipe was that I replaced the sugar with honey and I used organic lactose-free milk, instead of almond milk. I’m sure you could use any type of milk you wanted, if you wanted to make it dairy-free as well. 

All ingredients for crust. I actually had to made two batches of the crust recipe so that I can extend the crust up the sides of the pan.

Press the crust down into the pie/cake pan.

All ingredients for pie filling.

 

Whisk all ingredients together.

 

Pour pie filling into the unbaked pie crust. Place into the oven and cook for 40-45 min instead of 30 minutes (like I did). Another good thing to follow is if your pie cracks a little, that means it’s done. 

 

And…..well-ah! It’s done!
