The Healthiest Pumpkin Pie Ever

Posted Oct 11 2012 8:25am
When it comes to October the first thing you can't wait to make is definitely pumpkin pie. This year we tend to use less flour, less sugar, less oil - it's all about the way you feel and look. We believe sweet treats can and should be healthy.

Here it is, the healthiest pumpkin pie ever. Gluten-free. Butter-free. Absolute love.

011 Pumpkin Pie

Ingredients (serves 8): 

For the crust:

2 handfuls of mixed nuts (almonds, walnuts, hazelnuts)
2 handfuls of dates
3 tablespoons oats (substitute with rice flour for gluten-free version)
1 cm thick piece of fresh ginger
a pinch of salt
a splash of olive oil

For the filling:

half of a medium pie pumpkin
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cloves
3 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon cardamom
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground hot pepper
1 egg
1 tablespoon rice flour

Method:

Preheat the oven to 200 C. Cut a medium pie pumpkin in half, you will need just a half of it.

001 Pumpkin Pie

Take one half and cut it in 4 pieces.

002 Pumpkin Pie

Place the pumpkin pieces in the oven and roast for 30-40 minutes until the pulp softens.

While the pumpkin is in the oven let's make the pie crust.

We will need a blender or a food processor. Take 2 handfuls of mixed nuts. We used almonds, walnuts and hazelnuts, you can choose any nuts you love.

003 Pumpkin Pie

Take 2 handfuls of dates and 3 tablespoons oats.

004 Pumpkin Pie

Place all the ingredients in the food processor, add your ginger, a pinch of salt and drizzle with a little bit of olive oil.

005 Pumpkin Pie

Blend the ingredients until they turn into a crumbly crust. You can test it by rolling a small amount of it in your hands: if the crust sticks together then it's perfectly ready. Line a tart mould with parchment paper, press the crumbs into the mould and place in the fridge while preparing the pie filling.

006 Pumpkin Pie

For the filling put the pumpkin out of the oven and turn the heat down to 180 C, we will need it for baking the pie. Scrape the pumpkin pulp off the peel, let it cool for a while, add to the food processor together with an egg, sugar, rice flour and spices.

007 Pumpkin Pie

Puree the ingredients and pour them into the cooled pie crust.

008 Pumpkin Pie

009 Pumpkin Pie

010 Pumpkin Pie

Put the pie in the oven and cook it for 25-30 minutes until the filling thickens. Let cool and serve with a spoon of creme fraiche on top, it greatly balances the sweetness of the pie.
