Paleo Pumpkin Pie (Keto & Vegan)

Paleo Pumpkin Pie (Keto & Vegan)

Gosh how I love pumpkin pie… and missed it dearly when I realized how destructive sugar was to my system.  Then Keto came onto the scene and there were alternatives to sugar after years of abstaining!  It was very exciting for a little while… Now…. this is an updated post… and looking back to November of 2020 I was extremely excited to eat this pie when just a year before it had caused me physical pain.  My gut was a mess and so any vegetable whatsoever, as well as pumpkin flour… gave me some serious jip.  I got away with 4 pieces of asparagus on Thanksgiving Day in 2019 and that was after a month and a half of some serious mindful gut healing.


I thought I would update this recipe with one fo my favorite adaptogenic boosters, gelatinized red Maca, as it has a gorgeous malted flavor when cooked, and it goes oh so well with pumpkin.  It’ll carry a boost of clean energy as well so it’s all around enjoyable!  My preferred Maca comes from The Maca Team, as it is clean, responsibly sourced and considerably better than any other brand I’ve tried.  Women should opt for red, men for black and if you’re just looking for energy without the hormone balancing and reproductive benefits *wink* then feel free to save some pennies and grab yellow.  But for me… I enjoy some hormone balance!

Pumpkin is a fantastic food for fall, packed with Vitamin A and full of gut nourishing prebiotic fiber, so enjoy without guilt!

Here is my sweet and easy pumpkin pie recipe for the AIP crowd.  Serve it with homemade paleo ice cream and enjoy!
