PlantPure Pumpkin Pie

Ditch the rolling pins and enjoy this simple and easy pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving!  But, don’t just reserve this recipe for the holidays because this is one of my very favorite classic pies.  The cookie style crust pairs beautifully with the rich flavor of the pumpkin filling. 

Apple Cranberry Crisp

The sweetness of apples and tartness of cranberries create the perfect flavor balance for this autumn desert. We like to think of Apple Cranberry Crisp as a lazy pie with a cookie crust topping!

 PlantPure Pumpkin Pie

Prep time    20 minutes  

Cook time   50-55 minutes    

Yield              8 servings

🌱 Ingredients

     Crust

  • 1 ½ cups oats
  • 1 cup walnuts
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup dates, pitted and soaked
  • 1-2 tablespoons applesauce or plant-based milk (for moistening)

     Filling

  • ½ cup walnuts
  • 1 cup pitted dates, soaked
  • 2 tablespoons molasses
  • ¾ cup unsweetened plant-based milk
  • 1-15 ounce can pumpkin puree 
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Place the oats, walnuts, and cinnamon into a food processor and blend until you form a grainy and course texture.  Add the dates and process until you have a sticky mixture.  If it feels a bit dry, add applesauce or plant-based milk one tablespoon at a time to reach a stickier consistency.
  3. Press the mixture into the bottom and sides of a 9-inch pie plate. Set aside.
  4. Place the walnuts, soaked dates, molasses, and plant-based milk into a high-speed blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Add pumpkin puree, vanilla, cornstarch, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, and sea salt and continue to blend until smooth.
  5. Place the pumpkin mixture into the prepared pie crust and spread evenly. Bake for 50 minutes or until filling is set. If the crust begins to burn, cover the edges with aluminum foil or a pie shield after about 15 minutes of baking.  Allow the pie to cool at room temperature for 30 minutes and then refrigerate for 4-6 hours before serving.
