The Best Vegan and Gluten-Free Pumpkin Pie

i did it guys, i made a pumpkin pie that should probably get awards lol. humble brag but the minute you take a bite of The Best Vegan and Gluten-Free Pumpkin Pie, i know you’ll agree with me. it’s honestly amazing to me that this pumpkin pie is vegan AND gluten-free. it’s positively delicious and perfect in every way.

if i had to guess, i will be making The Best Vegan and Gluten-Free Pumpkin Pie between 10 and 15 times this season haha.

from now until late November, possibly even December, this will be on repeat. you don’t have to be vegan to love this pie.

in fact, share it with non-vegans because they won’t realize what they’re eating is plant-based, promise they will be shocked.

the filling is this glorious, custard-y goodness that you make in the food processor aka my favorite kitchen item! i seriously use it for everything, especially fillings because it yields a perfect consistency every time.

you also make the crust in the food processor, so this recipe is minimal mess and made in no time!

the process to make The Best Vegan and Gluten-Free Pumpkin Pie is really easy too!

  • first, add all of the crust ingredients to a food processor.

  • then, evenly distribute it in a pie pan.

  • clean the food processor, then add the filling ingredients and blend.

  • pour the filling into the pie crust and place it in the oven.

  • bake and then chill preferably overnight in the fridge but at least 6 hours!

you can serve this plain and it will be glorious, truly, no whipped cream or ice cream are needed BUT i will never say no to these additions lol.

it’s best served and eaten the day you make it but you can of course store The Best Vegan and Gluten-Free Pumpkin Pie in the fridge in an airtight container.

  1. I have had the pie in a 350degree oven for an hour and 20 minutes, when I insert a knife in the middle it comes out with filling is this how it should be ?
