The Best Guilt-Free Pumpkin Pie Recipe Ever

Celebrate all of the goodness (without the sugar hangover).

Confession: I don’t love pie.

I know. It is quite un-American, and perhaps yet another reason I should be a Brit. (Not that I’d ever be caught eating Shephard’s Pie. Minced meat? Eek!)

The illustrious pie has grown on me in the last few years, but during this time I have also become increasingly more aware of what foods I am eating. It is not surprising to state that pie and healthy food awareness do not typically go hand in hand—but they do now, thanks to this vegan, paleo, gluten-free pumpkin pie recipe.

This pumpkin pie recipe is made without refined sugar or flour, and it is packed with healthy flax and chia seeds for protein, fiber and omega-3s. And if I haven’t sold you yet, get this: You don’t even need to turn on your oven to make it.
