It’s pie season y’all!! I’m so excited for all the obligatory pies for our Thanksgiving celebrations that I’m devoting this entire week to pies. It’s PIE WEEK, PEOPLE!!
I also became aware there was a serious lacking of pies on my blog so I thought well hey, let’s make all the pies and let’s make them NOW.
Everyone has their favorite. My favorite is pecan. This chocolate ganache pie is a close second, though. I use this almond flour pie crust in all of them because it’s super simple and only four ingredients. If you’re looking to experiment with your own pie middles, that almond flour pie crust is a great base!
Ingredients to make an almond flour pie crust:
- ghee: butter also works
- agave nectar: honey or maple syrup is also a good option
- almond flour
- sea salt
How to make a pie crust with almond flour:
Whisk together the ghee, agave nectar, almond flour, egg, and sea salt.
Press the crust into the bottom of the pie dish and up the sides. You may need to dampen your hands so it doesn’t get too sticky.
Bake for 10 minutes.
Ingredients for dairy free pumpkin pie filling:
- coconut cream
- pumpkin puree: you can also sub in a butternut squash puree or sweet potato puree
- pumpkin spice
- agave nectar: honey, maple syrup, or coconut nectar are great subs if you don’t like or have agave nectar
- coconut sugar
- coconut oil
How to make dairy free pumpkin pie filling:
Whisk together the coconut cream, pumpkin puree, eggs, pumpkin spice, salt, agave nectar, coconut sugar, coconut oil, and vanilla. You’re welcome to add a dash of cinnamon or nutmeg if you like your pumpkin pie a bit more spiced.
When the crust is done baking, slowly pour the pumpkin mixture in the center and pop it back into the oven for another 50 – 60 minutes until the center is set and the top is no longer wet looking.
Top with your favorite whip cream (I’ve heard there’s a fun coconut whip cream at Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s!) or ice cream.
