It’s that time of the year when pumpkins are everywhere and pumpkin dishes abound. This pecan crusted pumpkin pie is an amazing blend of flavors!
What would Thanksgiving be without pumpkin pie? This is a simple, whole, nutritious, you-could-eat-it-for-breakfast pie.
This pecan crusted pumpkin pie has a wonderfully crispy crust with the buttery flavor of the pecans that is reminiscent of graham cracker crust. Filled with fresh cooked pumpkin it is totally satisfying and a great way to top off a seasonal meal!

Author: Dr. Jill
Prep Time: 25 minutes
Cook Time: 50 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour 15 minutes
Drip the cooked pumpkin in a strainer with a bowl underneath for an hour to get out excess liquid
In a food processor puree the pumpkin, all the spices and the eggs
Add the coconut milk or cream and mix
Measure out the nuts and in a food processor grind them to a nut butter
Add the oil, honey, vanilla and process
Add the coconut flour and process until it combines and it becomes a ball
If it is too soft add a little more coconut flour 1 teaspoon at a time until it becomes solid enough to press into a pie pan (it doesn’t have to become a ball)
Press the crust batter into a large pie plate (9″ or 10″ lined with oiled parchment paper)
Putting it all together
Pour the filling into the pie crust
Bake in a 350
F oven for 45 – 50 minutes — you might want to cover the rimes of the crust with foil or a commercial pie crust protector as they tend to burn º If the crust is getting too dark cover the pie with a piece of foil or other oven safe method and continue to bake until it is set
Cool and then refrigerate
This may be served warm or cold with toppings such as fresh whipped cream,
coconut whipped cream, yogurt, etc.
