Ingredients

For the Crust

  • 1 1/2 c raw almonds
  • 2/3 c raisins (free of preservatives and sulfur)
  • 1/4 c shredded raw coconut
  • 1 tsp. alcohol-free vanilla extract

For the Filling

  • 2 c diced pie pumpkin (about 1" cubes)
  • 3/4 c pitted dates
  • 5 tbsp. homemade almond milk
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. alcohol-free vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • 4 tbsp. melted coconut oil
;

Instructions

For the Crust

  1. Grind the almonds into a flour in a food processor.
  2. Add the raisins and continue grinding until broken down.
  3. Add the coconut and vanilla. Grind again to incorporate.
  4. Add another 1/2 - 1 teaspoon water if needed to keep the mixture held together when pressed in your hand.
  5. Press into the bottom of a pie plate or mini tart pans.

For the Filling

  1. In a high speed blender, combine the pumpkin, almond milk, spices, and vanilla. Blend to liquid. 
  2. Add the dates and blend again until smooth (use the tamper). 
  3. Add the coconut oil last, once the mixture is warm. Blend to incorporate. 
  4. Spread the filling into crust. Chill for at least 6 hours (longer is better for flavors to mix). 

Notes:

I found that this pie gets better with age - it's even better after chilling in the fridge for 2-3 days and will last for 7-9 days.
