Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time1 hr 15 mins
Total Time1 hr 30 mins
Servings: 9 slices
- 1 can pumpkin puree
- 2/3 cup coconut cream from a can of coconut milk refrigerated overnight
- 3/4 cup granulated monkfruit or coconut sugar for non low-carb
- 1/4 cup natural almond butter
- 2 Tbs ground flaxseed + 1/4 cup water I used leftover coconut water from the can
- 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice to taste
- Scant 1/2 tsp pink salt
To make the crust:
Preheat oven to 350. Grease a pie dish with oil. Set aside.
In a small bowl, mix flax, water and set aside to thicken. Stir in oil.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together almond flour, salt, and monk fruit.
Pour wet mixture over dry and mix well with a fork until a dough forms. Add a small splash of water if it's too crumbly.
Press dough evenly into pie dish. Prick all over with a fork to prevent bubbling.
Par bake for 10 minutes. Remove and allow to cool for 5 minutes before filling.
To make the filling:
Add all ingredients to a mixing bowl and whip with a hand mixer until silky smooth. Taste and adjust with more spice or monk fruit.
Spread filling over crust.
Wrap crust in foil (I used 2 large pieces of foil overlapping and covering the entire bottom of the pie dish, wrapping over the perimeter edge/crust portion only)
Bake in the center rack for 70-85 minutes, until it's lightly set, but still little jiggly in the center.
Allow to cool completely on a wire rack at room temp, then refrigerate for 6 hours (or overnight) before serving.
Garnish with a dollop of coconut whipped cream (recipe in notes) ENJOY!
