Gluten Free Pumpkin Pie


This will be my first gluten free Thanksgiving, and I am not willing to sacrifice my favorites… So, I’ve decided to start working on GF Thanksgiving recipes.  It’s a bit of trial and error, especially when it comes to baked goods.  So starting early will guarantee a successful menu, that we can all benefit from.  Here is a healthier gluten free version of an old time fav!

Gluten Free Pumpkin Pie

  • 2  cups pumpkin puree (fresh is best, but canned will do)
  • 1 1/2 cups yogurt (either strained or greek style)
  • 1/2 cup honey 
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • gf pie crust, chilled and ready to go

*spices and honey can be adjusted, I like my pie to have a strong spice flavor and not too sweet.

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Combine all ingredients in food processor or mixer to ensure everything is fully incorporated and smooth.
  3. Pour in prepared and unbaked pie crust.
  4. Bake at 350 for 50-60 minutes or until pie is set.
  5. Let pie cool down, then refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.
  6. Slice and serve with a dollop of whipped cream.

*yields one 9 in pie.

*also note that this pie crust browns quickly, so be sure to use a pie crust shield or tented tin foil part way thru baking.

    Hey Michelle, any good suggestions for a dairy free substite for the yogurt? We’ve gone gluten free and casein free for Liam. I’m thinking coconut milk but I’m not sure if it would have the right consistency.

      Mandy, is it the lactose in the dairy that he can’t have? If so, I have been making my own yogurt that ferments for 24 hrs and becomes lactose free. Let me know if you are interested in that recipe. I did consider using coconut milk in this recipe, I was just concerned the coconut flavor would take over. If you do try, please let me know how it turns out! It’s great to have more altenatives.

    Did anyone try it with the coconut milk? I am debating between this recipe and the gooey pumpkin pie cake recipe… which one is your favorite?
    Can’t wait!

    Hi Michelle,
    Can I replace the honey with sugar? We like things really sweet.
