Gluten-Free Neo-Paleo Pumpkin Pie With Coconut Crust Recipe

Posted by | October 23, 2011 | Recipes | 10 Comments

It’s not fall until you behold the arresting waft of pumpkin pie blasting from your kitchen oven.

Last night Alyson and I altered the old family favorite with a few primal tweaks. This pumpkin pie is delicious… and it’s also gluten-free, grain-free, processed sugar-free, and primal-friendly.

    Mmmm, this pie was so delicious with chocolate coconut ice cream, and just by itself. We ate it with dinner last night, and then again with breakfast this morning. The crust was buttery and flaky with just enough sweetness, and the goat milk did something magical to the filling. Its light, moist texture works perfectly with the delicious flavor of pumpkin and spices to put me in the Fall mood. I love discovering ways to indulge in things I love and still know I’m being good to my body. Can’t wait to have another piece. :)

    Man, I just made this last night and it came out so good! Thanks Abel!

  • Lisa Sargent says:

    OMG this looks amazing. I’m going to try it!

  • Angelita Sparklelini says:

    Can’t wait to try this recipe! Maybe you and Alyson can make it on Thanksgiving? We’re snowed in here, lost power for awhile, but power is on now. Would like to try the recipe with our friend’s fresh goat’s milk.

  • Making this right now. The crust is working fabulously. I didn’t have enough coconut oil in the house so used kerrygold butter and substituted organic milk for the goat milk. (shopped before I started making pies! Silly.) will try your recipe for Christmas and buy the right ingredients first! Will use your crust recipe for the pear tart I’m about to make. Will let you know how it works. May put a wee bit of chopped mint in the pear tart crust since it will have a savory glaze:)
