Gluten Free Pumpkin Pie

I wanted to get this recipe out ahead of Halloween so you have plenty of time to enjoy it!

I just adore this pie with its nutty, crunchy base and creamy filling. It is just such a delight to dig into.

Pumpkin is in season now and is just great to cook with. It’s a great source of carotenoid antioxidants which act as an anti-inflammatory . Pumpkin is an amazing veg to include in your diet- its is loaded with fibre meaning it will leave you satisfied and full without any uncomfortable bloat…

Ready in 75 minutes Good For


To make the filling  you will need 750g of cooked pumpkin, so you will need to either roast inch chunks it in coconut oil at 200C  for 30 minutes until cooked through or steam/boil inch chunks for 20 minutes until cooked through.  The difference? Roasting creates a slightly more caramel texture, whereas steaming is quicker. Make sure you cut off the skin. 

You can also buy it in cans, I have seen it in Wholefoods.

To make the pie…

  1. Turn your oven to 160 C  (fan).
  2. To make the crust firstly combine the nuts in a food processor for a minute. Pour in the rest of the crust ingredients and process until fully combined.
  3. Press the crust mix into a coconut oil greased 20cm pie dish and pop in the oven for 15 minutes.
  4. Take the cooked pumpkin and combine with the rest of the filling ingredients in a food processor. Pour the mix into the pie crust and cook in the oven for 40 minutes.
  5. Dust with cinnamon and enjoy.

    Ok good idea, thank you. Despite not setting as much as I’d have liked it was the most delicious pudding I’ve ever made and everyone loved it, so will just play around with the recipe a bit to try and get it a little harder for next time. Will be making this a LOT over the coming months so will let you know if I crack it. Thank you :) xxx

      Yes! Let me know xxx

    I think this recipe needs revising. I followed all instructions and measurements exactly and had the same experience as the person below – the pumpkin is still liquid-y/ mushy and not hardened at all. Smells delicious though!

      hmm maybe try steaming the pumpkin and not boiling so there is less liquid, let it cool first before cutting and it should harden up. Hope this helps xx

    although yummy, the inside of my pumpkin pie was completely liquid after baking for 40 mins? anyone else had this/know how to tweak recipe to make it hold? (should I add eggs to the pumpkin mix to make it solid once baked?)
