Paleo Pumkpin Pie

A newly-Paleo friend shared his recipe with me, and kindly gave me the OK to share with my readers, too!

Robbie's Paleo Pumpkin Pie

1 cup toasted pecans

2 cups pureed baked pumpkin (in a pinch, you can use a can, but try to stick with fresh!)

3 tsp natural pumpkin pie spice (cinnamon, ginger, lemon peel, nutmeg, cloves, cardamom, star anise, fennel, black pepper)

2 eggs

1/2 cup honey 

  • Preheat oven to 475 F.
  • Grind the pecans in a food processor and press into the bottom of a glass pie plate rubbed with olive oil and lined with parchment paper to form the crust.
  • Thoroughly mix the remaining ingredients (pumpkin, spice, honey, eggs) and pour over the crust. 
  • Bake for 15 minutes at 475 and then lower the temperature to 350 for another 30 – 40 minutes or until the 'custard' sets (cover the edges of the pan with foil to prevent the 'crust' from burning).


  • Cool on wire rack before serving in wedges, perhaps garnished with a dollop of coconut cream??
