Superfood Pumpkin Pie

Here's a recipe for a nutritious and delicious superfood pumpkin pie. Try adding some maca and/or lucuma for even more powerhouse nutrition, as both marry well with the pumpkin.

Ingredients:

For the Crust:

  • 1 ½ cups almond flour

  • 1/3 cup coconut oil, melted

  • 2 tablespoons real maple syrup

  • Pinch of sea salt

For the Filling:

  • 1 can (15 oz) pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)

  • 1/2 cup full-fat coconut milk

  • 1/3 cup real maple syrup

  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds

  • 2 tablespoons ground flaxseed

  • 2 tablespoons hemp seeds

  • 1 teaspoon ground Ceylon cinnamon

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

  • 1 teaspoon real vanilla extract

  • Pinch of sea salt

For Topping (optional):

  • Coconut whipped cream

  • Chopped nuts or seeds (I recommend pecans or pumpkin seeds)

Instructions:

For the Crust:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).

  2. In a bowl, combine the almond flour, melted coconut oil, maple syrup, and a pinch of salt. Mix until a dough forms.

  3. Press the dough into a 9-inch pie dish, ensuring an even layer on the bottom and sides.

  4. Bake the crust for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are golden brown. Remove from the oven and let it cool.

For the Filling:

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the pumpkin puree, coconut milk, maple syrup, chia seeds, flaxseed, hemp seeds, spices (cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cloves), vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt. Mix well until fully combined.

  2. Pour the pumpkin mixture into the cooled pie crust, spreading it evenly.

  3. Bake the pie in the preheated oven for 45-50 minutes or until the filling is set. You can check the pie's doneness by inserting a toothpick into the center; it should come out clean.

  4. Once baked, remove the pie from the oven and let it cool completely.

For Topping (optional):

  1. Top the cooled pumpkin pie with coconut whipped cream and sprinkle chopped nuts or seeds for added texture and flavor.

  2. Slice and serve the superfood pumpkin pie. Enjoy this nutrient-packed and flavorful dessert!

This superfood pumpkin pie is a healthful take on the classic dessert, enriched with nutrient-dense ingredients to offer a delicious and wholesome treat.
