A Very Vegan Pumpkin Pie Recipe

No comments

I don’t know about you, but I could eat pumpkin pie any time of year. I have been working on a vegan pumpkin pie recipe that is not only delicious, but *healthy* and I want to share it with you. Most store-bought vegan pies are loaded with soy products, which I avoid entirely. So, not only is this recipe vegan, but it is gluten-free, grain-free, soy-free and sugar-free.

This recipe is the perfect way to celebrate fall, because it incorporates all of the fantastic flavors of the season: ginger, nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon, vanilla, and pumpkin. And not only is this pie super easy to make, it is does not require any baking!
