Ingredient Notes

recipe ingredients labeled and in nesting bowls

Gluten Free Graham Crackers: I used slightly less than a complete package of Pamela’s brand gluten free graham crackers. Any brand works!

Butter: If you want the dairy-free option, use vegan butter if desired. Otherwise, you can use regular butter.

Pumpkin Puree: Use a can of regular pumpkin puree, not pumpkin pie filling. There’s a ton of added sugar in the canned pie filling!

Pumpkin Pie Spice: If you don’t have this on hand and want to make your own, Simply combine 2 tsp ground cinnamon, 1 tsp ground ginger, 1 tsp ground nutmeg, 3/4 tsp ground cloves, and 3/4 tsp allspice. Then use the 1tbsp + 1tsp and save the rest for another recipe.

Almond Milk: I haven’t tried this recipe with alternative milk options, but any non-dairy milk should work. You could also use regular milk- I recommend 2% or whole milk.

Recipe Step by Step

Gluten Free Pie Crust

step by step instructions for gluten free graham cracker crust
  1. Use a food processor to pulse the graham crackers until they resemble a fine sand texture. 
  2. Measure out exactly 1.5 cups of the graham cracker crumbs and add them to a bowl. 
  3. Add the melted butter and use a fork to mix until well combined. 
  4. Lightly spray a 9-inch pie pan with cooking spray. Use your fingers to press the graham cracker mixture into the bottom of the pie pan and up the sides to form a crust. Use the bottom of a measuring cup to help flatten the crust evenly. Place the crust in the fridge while you make the filling.

Gluten Free Graham Cracker Crust Tips

Binding: Use a measuring cup to help flatten the crust evenly. Press the gluten free graham crackers mixture firmly into your pie dish, making sure to leave no gaps. Build up the sides, firmly pressing on the walls of the pie dish.

Chilling: There is no need to bake your gluten free pie crust before adding the filling. Simply place your finished pie crust in the refrigerator while you make the filling. This will help bind the gluten free graham cracker crust together.

Baking: If you notice your crust is getting a little too dark, simply cover the top of the crust with foil to prevent it from burning.

Pumpkin Pie Filling

step by step instructions for pumpkin pie filling
  1. Add the pumpkin puree, eggs, maple syrup, coconut sugar, vanilla extract, almond milk, and pumpkin pie spice into a bowl and mix until smooth.
  2. Pour the mixture into the crust and use a spatula to even it out. 
  3. Bake for 55-60 minutes or until the middle looks mostly set. 
  4. Let it cool COMPLETELY and place in the fridge for 2 hours before slicing for best results. Top with whipped cream and a dusting of pumpkin pie spice if desired. Enjoy!
