What would Thanksgiving or any special autumn or winter meal be without a sweet and slightly spicy pumpkin pie? My recipe is all organic and contains no refined sugar, dairy, or eggs. You and your health will be thankful for that. Use your favorite whole grain non-gluten prepared crust or my easy, scrumptious oat nut crust. You can garnish this creamy classic pie with delicious roasted pecans. Great with Soy Cappuccino Grain Beverage. Both are in my Healthy Holiday Cookbook. Enjoy!
Oat Nut Crust
½ cup whole almonds, rinse
½ cup walnuts, rinse and drain
1 cup rolled oats
3 Tbl. corn oil, unrefined
1 Tbl. apple juice
1/8 tsp. sea salt
3 Tbl. maple syrup or agave
Preheat Oven to 350 degrees. Prepare Crust
1. Place nuts on a baking sheet and toast for 10 minutes. Stir. Toast 2 more minutes.
2. Remove, cool, and place in food processor with oats. Pulse to grind into a coarse meal.
3. Add the oil, juice, salt, and sweetener. Process quickly until just mixed.
4. Press this mixture into an oiled 9” pie pan, covering the bottom and coming up the sides about 1-1/2 inches. Bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees.
5. Remove and cool in pie pan as you finish preparing the filling.
