Gluten-Free & Vegan Pumpkin Pie

Gluten-Free & Vegan Pumpkin Pie

There’s nothing quite like the aroma of a freshly baked pumpkin pie to warm the heart and home. Today, we’re bringing you a special treat that everyone can enjoy – a gluten-free and vegan pumpkin pie recipe that’s as delightful to the palate as it is kind to the body.



For the Crust:

  • 1 ¼ cups gluten-free flour blend
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 6 Tbsp cold vegan butter
  • 4-6 Tbsp ice cold water

For the Filling:

  • 2 ¾ cups pumpkin puree
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ⅓ cup unsweetened plain almond milk
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil (or melted coconut oil)
  • 2 ½ Tbsp cornstarch or arrowroot powder
  • 1 ¾ tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • ¼ tsp sea salt

For Serving (optional):

  • Coconut whipped cream


Prepare the Crust: In a large mixing bowl, combine the gluten-free flour and salt. Cut in the cold vegan butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Gradually add ice cold water, stirring until a dough forms. Press the dough into a pie dish and chill for 30 minutes.

Pre-bake the Crust: Preheat your oven to 175°C. Once chilled, prick the crust with a fork and bake for 10 minutes.

Make the Filling: In a mixing bowl, whisk together the pumpkin puree, maple syrup, brown sugar, almond milk, oil, cornstarch, pumpkin pie spice, and sea salt until smooth.

Assemble the Pie: Pour the filling into the pre-baked crust and smooth the top with a spatula.

Bake: Return the pie to the oven and bake for 50-60 minutes, or until the filling is set and the crust is golden brown.

Cool & Serve: Allow the pie to cool completely before slicing. Serve with a dollop of coconut whipped cream.

This gluten-free and vegan pumpkin pie is the perfect end to any autumn meal, offering the classic flavours you love without any of the ingredients you don’t. Whether you’re sharing with friends or enjoying a slice solo, this pie is a winner. Enjoy the taste of autumn, and happy baking!
