High Protein Crustless Pumpkin Pie (gluten-free + paleo)

High Protein Crustless Pumpkin Pie #Gluten-free #PaleoThe 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.

If you’re here in Victoria, planning a trip to the city or have always want to go… you HAVE to check out Cafe Bliss, Be Love, Re-Bar and Wild Coffee.

High Protein Crustless Pumpkin Pie (Gluten-free & Paleo)

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.

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!
Ingredients
Pie
  • ¾ cup unsweetened non-dairy milk
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • ½ cup coconut sugar
  • 2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 3 large eggs
  • 15 ounces canned pumpkin puree - not pumpkin pie filling!
  • ¼ cup protein powder - see note
Topping
  • ⅓ cup chopped raw pecans
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon sugar (3/4 teaspoon coconut sugar, ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon)
  • 1 teaspoon avocado oil
Drizzle
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 325F and lightly oil a 9-inch pie plate with a dab of coconut oil.
  2. Combine pie ingredients in a large bowl and whisk to combine.
  3. Pour into the prepared pie plate and set aside.
  4. Add topping ingredients to a small bowl and stir until the nuts are coated. Sprinkle the mixture over top of the pie.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 55-60 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  6. Remove from the oven, allow to cool for 1 hour. Cover and place in the fridge overnight to chill.
  7. Serve with a drizzle of full-fat coconut milk.
Notes
Protein Powder - I used unflavored, nonGMO, gluten-free soy protein powder as I have been diagnosed with low estrogen and soy helps me increase my levels. You can use whatever protein powder you'd like to here. I would recommend unflavored so that it doesn't affect the taste. Alternatively, you could use something like coconut flour, almond flour or perhaps ground flax seed as a replacement.

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!

Combine pie ingredients in a large bowl and whisk to combine…

I didn’t have a bowl, so I used a pot for the first attempt at this recipe.

  1. My husband loves Pumpkin pie, we don’t have canned pumpkin purée in Australia. I would like to make my own to add to the recipe. Not sure on the ratio needed to make 15oz.
    Thanks :)

    • Hi Margi! You should be able to use 15 oz. of homemade pumpkin puree in place of the canned. You can do this by roasting a pumpkin and then pureeing it in a high-powered blender or food processor. Let us know how it turns out if you try it! :)

  2. Thank you for delicious easy beautiful pie!! Glad I followed your directions to a tee. I used Quest multi purpose protein powder.

  3. Decided to make this last minute and made it today (thanksgiving) morning. It chilled in the fridge for about 4 hours and it was still enough time to set. I made it low carb by using Truvia Brown Sugar blend and I used canned coconut milk. My non-low carb family members liked it and I personally was impressed by it. So glad you posted this. You helped me keep to my Keto diet even with a full sugar pumpkin pie temptation in the house. Thanks!

  4. So verrrry scrumptious! I omitted the protein powder and actually forgot about adding 2 tablespoons of coconut flour instead, but it’s just what I was looking for! Thanks so very much for sharing Leanne!
    Blessings!
    Karen

  5. First time making it and it’s in the oven right now. It smells amazing! I can’t wait to eat it!
