Creating desserts that are easy to make at home is also a win when it comes to controlling the ingredients I use and allows me to design nutrient dense versions of SAD foods.
Is Pumpkin Pie Healthy?
Among my many gluten free recipes, pumpkin pie is one of my all-time favorites!
The term “healthy pie” may sound like an oxymoron, however, this recipe is a trifecta of nutritious.
Pumpkin is a fiber rich food, organic dark chocolate is a powerful antioxidant, and almond flour is a health hero for a low carb high protein diet.
Dairy Free Pie Recipe with Chocolate Chips
The star of the show here is the dark dairy free chocolate chips that give this recipe an added layer of creamy richness and the perfect punch of rich cacao. I use organic 70% dark chocolate chips that are vegan.
A quick reminder to read ingredient labels to ensure you are using a product that is beneficial for a healthy diet and free from allergens.

Simply spread the thick batter around the pie crust using a spatula or the back of a spoon.
Dairy Free Gluten Free Pie Crust
This Dairy Free Chocolate Pumpkin Pie recipe is cradled in a scrumptiously buttery Gluten Free Pie Crust. Food for thought –I’ve been told this crust tastes like a cookie!
There is essentially one step in this crust recipe –combining coconut flour, butter, arrowroot powder, and maple syrup in a food processor. Then it’s ready to pop in the oven.
I usually make the crust the day before I prepare the pie filling, which allows time to focus on the other healthy easy dishes I plan to serve during the holidays.
Can I Use Canned Pumpkin in This Recipe?
I use canned pumpkin in this pie recipe in order to cut down on the prep time.
Did you know that both canned and fresh pumpkin are packed with fiber along with vitamins A, C, and E, in addition to iron and potassium?
When is Pumpkin Pie Done?
How do you know when your pie is done? I do a quick knife test to determine this and simply insert a knife into the middle of the filling. If the knife comes out clean, the pie is done baking.
How to Store Pumpkin Pie
I’m frequently asked how to store pumpkin pie. I like to keep it in the refrigerator with a pre-made batch of my vegan whipped cream.

Dairy Free Keto Pumpkin Pie
My Keto Pumpkin Pie is the best no bake pumpkin pie, as well as another great recipe with few ingredients! It’s also a fantastic low carb, high fat (LCHF) dessert.
To achieve the creamy sweetness of this no bake pie, I liquefy coconut oil and coconut milk and sweeten it with 1 tablespoon of maple syrup, yes that’s keto.
But you can also make this pie without the sweetener, and it will still taste divine, I promise.
The coconut products provide healthy fats that are super creamy and give the pie a great mouthfeel. Of all my Vegan Thanksgiving recipes, this pie is one that never lasts as a holiday leftover.

This post is an oldie but goodie from the archives. I first shared this Dairy Free Chocolate Pumpin Pie recipe in 2016.
can I use almond flour or gluten free flour for the crust. And almond milk instead of coconut. Some family members are allergic to coconut.
Marie, the crust recipes are linked at the bottom of the pie recipe. Almond milk won’t work in the pie recipe :-)
Roseanne Gallagher says
I made this the other day with my homegrown roasted pumpkin since we have so many pumpkins we grew that I don’t buy canned. It’s delicious! I think if I served it to someone who didn’t know the ingredients they would think it was chocolate cheesecake.
Roseanne, thanks for letting me know this is delicious!
