Best Paleo Pumpkin Pie

Pumpkin Pie is my personal favorite pie! Especially for this time of year, it is a classic choice for most people. But, if you’re like me, you probably want to still enjoy a nice dessert while still eating healthier. This ‘Best Paleo Pumpkin Pie’ recipe is free from High Fructose Corn Syrup, refined sugars, gluten, dairy, and overly processed ingredients.

Pumpkin Health Benefits

Did you know a Pumpkin is considered a fruit? It’s true! However, they are actually nutritionally closer to a vegetable. One of the nutrients found in pumpkin is Vitamin A – and there is a ton of it. There is 245% of the Reference Daily Intake (RDI) in one cup of cooked pumpkin. That is really impressive! Read more about it HERE.

Ingredients

Crust

  • 1 cup Blanched Almond Flour
  • 2 Tbsp Coconut Flour sifted
  • 2/3 cup Tapioca Flour
  • 1/2 cup Palm Oil Shortening cold or grassfed butter/combination of both
  • 1 Tbsp Maple Sugar or Coconut Sugar*
  • 1/2 tsp Sea Salt fine grain
  • 1 Egg

Filling

  • 15 oz Pumpkin Puree
  • 2/3 cup Full Fat Coconut Milk blended
  • 6 Tbsp Pure Maple Syrup or a tbsp or 2 more if you'd like it sweeter
  • 2 tsp Pure Vanilla extract
  • 1 Tbsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • Pinch Salt
  • 2 large Eggs room temp
  • 1 Egg Yolk room temp

Instructions

Crust

  • Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F. In the bowl of a food processor, pulse all crust ingredients EXCEPT egg to create thick crumbs, then pulse/process in the egg until a dough forms.
  • Gather the dough into a ball, wrap in plastic, and chill in the refrigerator at least 20 minutes prior to rolling or pressing into your pie dish.
  • To get the dough into your pie dish, you can either:
    – Roll out the dough into a circle between two sheets of parchment. Place your pie dish upside-down over the dough, then using the bottom parchment paper, flip the dough into the dish. Finish by pressing it into the bottom and sides of the pie dish to fit – this dough will break easily since it lacks gluten, however it also repairs incredibly easily and can withstand a lot of manipulation without affecting the final product!**
    – If you don't wish to roll out the dough (or find it tricky) you can simply press evenly into 9 inch pie dish using your hands.  Be patient and refrigerate dough as needed to make it easier to work with**
  • Once pressed into the pie dish, gently pierce the dough with a fork all over so it doesn't puff up while baking.
  • Bake pie crust in 9” pie dish in the 375 degree oven for 10 minutes until bottom is set, remove from oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes before pouring in filling.

Filling

  • Whisk all ingredients except eggs, then whisk in eggs and egg yolk 1 at a time, don’t overmix.
  • Pour filling into partially baked crust, spreading it all around to seal edges. Cover crust with aluminum foil and bake (at 375 degrees F) for 55-65 minutes or until center is nearly set (still a bit jiggly) and crust is deep golden brown.
  • Allow to cool completely at room temperature to avoid excessive cracking of the filling. Once cooled, serve, or, cover and store in the refrigerator for up to 2 days prior to serving. Serve topped with coconut whipped cream if desired. Enjoy!

Notes

*Coconut sugar will cause the crust to darken more than maple sugar 
**Unlike a traditional gluten-containing crust, you can’t “overwork” the dough, so take your time as needed pressing it into the pie dish

I have been using the Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for the last few weeks and It has helped me so much. I struggle quite a bit with work related stress. When I'm in the chamber I feel completely relaxed, so much so that I can bring my laptop inside and work without stressing. The calmness I feel in the chamber lasts for the remainder of the day as well. I have found too, the more consistent I am with sessions throughout the week the better I feel. The office staff seems well trained in running the tanks too, so I feel safe. I see Dr. Kilcup as well for my brain and gut health. Until now, I don't think I've ever known what "normal" or "healthy" feels like. Thank you all, sincerely!

I am very grateful to have found Dr. Kilcup and be his patient for the last couple of years. He has helped me restore my health back after being exposed to toxic mold for years. He helped identify and treat all of my symptoms I was experiencing and address the root problem. I was looking for the right person who could help me heal with natural therapies and supplements and Dr. Kilcup was the perfect fit. Every appointment and session was necessary and one step towards all the progress I made. Dr. Kilcup is a great functional medicine doctor who was also an advocate for my own health and well-being. I never received any care or attention to detail from other Doctors in past experiences except with Dr. Kilcup. Anyone who is seeking a holistic path towards healing or improving their own health should see him.
