Yes, there is a way to enjoy your pumpkin pie guilt-free and make it a healthy option too 🎃 . This sugar-free pumpkin pie recipe I want to share with you is low-carb, gluten-free, and packed with antioxidants…which is important in keeping your body free from chronic inflammation.
While pumpkin pies are packed with pumpkin which has a ton of health benefits, the added harmful additives and ingredients in conventional pies turn it into an unhealthy dessert packed with sugar and hydrogenated oil.
Benefits Of Pumpkin
Pumpkin is packed with Vitamins and minerals. It is also high in antioxidants that keep your cells healthy. So eating pumpkin is so beneficial for your body. And you can eat it and enjoy it every day! A lot of people wait until thanksgiving to make pumpkin pie, I love to have it anytime throughout the year.
How To Make The Low Carb Crust
The only flour that worked for me was almond flour. I’ve tried to make the low-carb crust from scratch several times and I messed it up every time. Coconut flour specifically just didn’t work alone. The mixture wouldn’t stick.
This one turned out exactly like the conventional crust and it tastes amazing too. All I did was add a bit of brown rice flour. If you’re on the keto diet, you may not want to add any rice flour but you don’t need a ton. Just a tiny bit to help it stick together.
