The easiest most healthy pumpkin pie you’ve ever indulged in. It’s wheat-free, gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, paleo, and high in protein!
I’ve been feasting on all sorts of yumminess during my visit to Victoria, BC. I’ve been pleasantly surprised to see gluten-free, grain-free, and paleo options in the most unlikely of places.
Before, when I was afraid of my allergies and food sensitivities, I stressed out about traveling. I was worried that restaurants would find my questions annoying or that there would just be no options. But? No matter where I go, or what I do, I never, ever go hungry.
I’ve had a bunch of opportunities to feast on desserts during my stay, but I haven’t been in the mood. It might have something to do with all of the last-minute dessert baking I was doing in preparation for my Christmas dessert cookbook launch (coming this Tuesday!) or, that I made (and ate) this pie the day before I left for my trip.
Note the emphasis on made AND ate. Yeh. Kevin and I polished off this bad boy in a day.
Pie for breakfast? Totally acceptable when there’s no crust. It’s practically a smoothie… just thicker… and sweeter.

Eggs - sorry, I didn't test this recipe without eggs. You could try replacing the eggs with chia seeds (2 teaspoons ground chia with 2 tablespoons of water for every egg in the recipe) but I'm not sure it would work. If you give it a try, let me know how it goes!
