I don’t know about you but the word pie isn’t in my vocabulary, let alone paleo pumpkin pie. Pie is just… sooo not cake. Pie is for old people and I like to think of myself as the modern day Peter Pan. Forever immature is not how my momma raised me, but that’s what she ended up with!
Amiright or amiright?
Try and make me grow up… neener, neener, neener! <~ I don’t know what has gotten into me tonight. Oh wait, yes I do, and it’s called 2 hours of sleep. Super duper fun times, yo!
Focus on the task at hand. Focus on the paleo pumpkin pie recipe. Tell everyone how fabulously easy this recipe is to whip up. Encourage them to let the temptation tantalize their taste buds, while converting the non-believers into paleo warriors! Be strong!
Dudes, did you hear that? I don’t know what’s going on but it’s creeping me out. There is this strange old person urge pulling at my insides, begging me to share a pie recipe with you. You guys don’t come here for recipes, do you?
I guess I better satisfy the old bird inside me before she draws out my immaturity and power bombs it on the ceeeement.
Paleo pumpkin pie recipe
Paleo pie crust
- 2c Almond meal
- 2/3c Arrowroot Powder
- 1/4t Salt
- 2T Coconut oil
- 2 Eggs
Mush Mix everything together in the food processor and press the doughy mixture into your Good Cook Bakeware.
Paleo pumpkin pie filling
- 2c Pumpkin puree
- 1/2c Maple syrup
- 1c Coconut milk
- 2 Eggs
- 2T Honey
- 2t Vanilla
- 2t Cinnamon
- 1/4t Ginger
- 1/2t Nutmeg
- 1/4t Clove
Toss everything into a mixer, blend until smooth, and pour the pumpkin mix into the pie crust. You know me and my inability to prepare something needing more than one step. My brain just isn’t programmed for all of the fancy recipes you find on Pinterest. Meh, someone needs to create a site for lazy bakers to unite and drink. Yes, drinking sounds delightful.
Tip- Figuring out how long to bake something is the hardest part for me because I think everything is going to burn, forcing me to start over. I get… umm… annoyed (yes, let’s go with annoyed) if I have to start a recipe over, so I started at 40 minutes and ended up at 60 minutes.
Note- My mom didn’t like the additional ginger, clove, and nutmeg, so leave the spices at home if you are a minimal spice type of person.
And then this happened. I was upset at first because, you know, Pinterest only likes pretty food, and my paleo pumpkin pie was now sporting a less than attractive crater. When I finally realized I wasn’t recreating my recipe, I started lowering my aperture to the level of my maturity for one decent shot.
But wait, that’s not all!
This Good Cook pumpkin scoop is a bad mamma jamma because it’s a fancy scooper and knife thingiemajig. Yep, you heard it here first, folks! This pumpkin scoop is capable of going beyond traditional pumpkin. This pretty little thang is going to assist me with the spaghetti squash I have on the fall calendar!
