I have a Paleo pumpkin pie recipe for you today that everyone will enjoy. When eating Paleo for the holidays it can be a little tricky but you don't have to worry now. I don't know about you, but I've found that eating Paleo during the holidays is HARD.

It seems like everyone shoves anything in their mouths they want to without repercussions. If I were to eat just one bite of that type of food, I would feel horrible. Oh well. I figure it will all even out in the long run.

How? Well, if nothing else, there's a chance that when they are old and decrepit and can barely move, I'll be old with plenty of energy and feeling just peachy. It's possible. I really know it is. I really believe the Paleo diet is so good for our bodies in the long run (well, and the short-run too).

But back to the holidays. What to do about desserts. So someone asks you to bring pumpkin pie to a party. What do you do? Bring a pie you can't eat or bring a pie, like this that you can eat?

So hard to decide. I think it totally depends on the party. I usually end up making or buying what I'm asked and then bring along a few things I know I will be able to eat and that some other health-minded people will try.

That's how this pie came to be. I actually bought regular pies from a local bakery, because I didn't want to spend my time making something I wasn't going to eat. Also because I don't even have a lot of "normal" ingredients in my house. Plus, you can get "normal" people's food relatively inexpensive. Does anyone else think it's ironic that the less stuff in something, the more it costs?

But I wanted to bring something I could eat, so I developed this Paleo pie recipe for me. I cook Paleo quite often for family parties and they don't even know they are eating Paleo. But with something like a pie, it's just not quite the same. Let's put it this way - my dad can tell this pie ain't normal and if it ain't normal, he ain't gonna eat it.

A few of the women gave it a try though and liked it. Mostly women who are watching their figure and like that it's lower in carbs and has healthier sugars than a normal pie.

I like that I can eat it and hey if no one else wants to eat it - LEFTOVERS! I really like this crust. The almond flour goes so well with the pumpkin filling and I love how firm the filling is too - and just look at how pretty the coconut cream is on top!

The crust for this pie is super easy to make and involves only a few ingredients. The pumpkin custard is firm and full of autumn spice! The topping is made of a slightly honey sweetened coconut cream that goes so nicely with the almond crust.

The crust for this pie is super easy to make and involves only a few ingredients. The pumpkin custard is firm and full of autumn spice! The topping is made of a slightly honey sweetened coconut cream that goes so nicely with the almond crust.





  • 15 oz can Pumpkin Puree
  • ⅓ Cup Honey
  • 1 Tbsp Coconut oil (melted)
  • 2 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • ⅓ Cup Coconut Milk * (canned)
  • 3 Eggs


  • 2 cans Coconut Milk * (chilled, Firm cream on top only)
  • 1 Tbsp Honey (Raw)



  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Place the almond flour and salt in the bowl of a food processor. Process for about 30 seconds.
  3. Add the coconut oil and egg to the processor and process until the mixture comes together in large crumbles.
  4. Place the dough in a 9” pie dish and pat the dough firmly and evenly around the sides and bottom of the pan.
  5. Cover the pan with a sheet of tin foil and bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes. Remove and let cool .


  1. Add the pumpkin puree, honey, coconut oil, pumpkin pie spice, coconut milk, and eggs to a large mixing bowl.
  2. Whisk together until smooth. Pour into the pre-baked pie crust. Bake at 350 degrees for 50-55 minutes, or until the top is slightly puffed and firmly set.
  3. Remove and let cool completely. Refrigerate.


  1. Place the firm coconut cream(this is the firm, white, creamy, thick coconut cream that rises to the top of a can of coconut milk. Do not shake it before opening. It may help to chill the cans before opening as well as some coconut milks don’t separate as well as others)in a mixing bowl along with the honey. Beat together with an electric mixer until smooth and creamy.
  2. Spoon or pipe on top of the chilled pie.

    We made this for Thanksgiving and loved it. It's always wonderful to find healthy and delicious recipes. I used coconut cream instead of coconut milk and coconut whip as well as low-sugar graham crust instead of homemade (less healthy and more expeditious options).


  2. Tango Mango

    I normally use half a cup of honey. 1/3 cup isn't enough.


    • Rebecca Baron

      That's great, you probably like it sweeter than I do.

    So delish!

    Next time I might add some maple syrup or a tad more honey to the pumpkin but it turned out great!

    I'm going to have to try this for Thanksgiving this year!


  7. Chloe

    This looks like the perfect Thanksgiving pumpkin pie recipe. I'm going to try it this year.

    The pie looks great! But I learned that if you heat up honey it counts as normal sugar. It looses it's benefits. Why don't you use sugar or coconut sugar? Or leave the sugar aside all together? I'm curious. Maybe add some stevia sweetener?


    • Rebecca

      You could probably use whatever sweetener you like - I just haven't experimented with other "sugars". I like honey because of the taste. And I don't believe that it counts the same as sugar. I feel way better after eating heated up honey than sugar or stevia. True that you may as well use regular honey instead of raw when heating it up though. . .


  9. Sheila

    How many carbs per serving? And can you exchange the honey for stevia or another sweetner?


  10. Julianne

    Can you use a can of coconut cream instead of scooping the cream off of the top of coconut milk? Does this pie need to be kept in the refrigerator?


    • Rebecca

      That should be fine to use and yet keep it in the fridge.


  11. Sarah

    I love this recipe! I like it better than traditional pumpkin pie. The crust is thin and not soggy even after sitting in the fridge for a day! I added 1 tsp of cinnamon to the crust mixture. I'll be baking this pie again for Thanksgiving.


  12. Rachel M.

    What did you use to put the whip cream on the pie? It is beautiful!!!


    • Rebecca

      I used my piping tube. You can use any tip you would want to.
