Paleo pumpkin pie made with real and simple ingredients. This is the perfect star dessert for any Thanksgiving table, especially with a dollop of coconut cream on top!

This paleo pumpkin pie, for lack of a better term, takes the cake every year at our Thanksgiving. It’s one of my favorite recipes that I’ve been making for several years now, and it just amazes me how simple it is, and yet SO delicious!

I feel like sometimes pumpkin pie is a mixed bag for people, and then throw in a paleo pumpkin pie, and it’s just, “What…what…WHAT are you doing?!” Or at least, people aren’t racing to the dessert table at Thanksgiving, looking for the pumpkin pie. Ya feel? I, for one, am a BIG fan of pumpkin pie. I literally could eat it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and be so happy.

Okay I might turn a little orange. BUT still. The point is, I’m a fan of pumpkin pie, and I’m an even bigger fan of this paleo pumpkin pie. It’s the perfect amount of sweet, but not overwhelmingly so, and it just goes perfectly with a dollop of coconut or real homemade whipped cream on top.

Every year, I bring this pie to our Thanksgiving to revival the prior favorite at family gatherings, and every year, mine is the first to be finished 😉 I’m just saying, this recipe is a keeper, and it’s SO easy! Don’t let the term “paleo” freak you out. It’s actually so delicious with the coconut flour crust, and you wouldn’t even know that it’s gluten free! Or refined sugar free. Or dairy free! Pretty amazing, huh?

Okay so you’re probably wondering…why do I keep doing the whole coconut flour, maple syrup, “vegan,” “paleo” thing? Well, it’s because I honestly don’t have much experience using traditional flours yet, and I’m really working on finding good ones that I can support! To me, it’s not about the actual food, it’s about the people who created it and what their intentions are. That’s part of being a conscious consumer in my eyes. It’s perfectly fine to use regular flour, and I don’t follow any one particular diet.

In fact, the crust is completely vegan, while the filling has eggs in it! Go figure! Now for the ingredients! What this recipe calls for is:

Eggs

Pumpkin Puree

Maple Syrup (I recommend trying to find a local brand)

Coconut Flour

Spices

Coconut Oil

Coconut Milk

Very simple and honestly so easy to throw all together. I’m actually surprised each time it comes out of the oven because for such simple ingredients, it feels a hella lot more professional! Oh, and the leaves, you might ask? So the ones in this photo, I made freeform (literally just took a small sharp knife and drew out each leaf), but you could totally buy some cookie cutter leaves! I only had christmas tree, snowmen, and ornament shape cookie cutters, so I made due with what I had 😉 Then all you need to do is score the leaf lines in using a knife! By scoring, I mean really pressing lightly, don’t cut all the way through the dough or else you’ll have half a leaf, not a full one!

Well, there ya have it, folks! A paleo pumpkin pie fit for any Thanksgiving table!
