I have to admit that I spent a lot of time in November testing out pumpkin pie recipes. And even better, I was set on creating a healthy pumpkin pie recipe because I’m 100% sure we don’t need to have pumpkin pie made with sweetened condensed milk.

If you weren’t already aware, my love for pumpkin pie is right up there with my love for all the nut butters, Justin Bieber and cats. You know, all the normal things in life. Uhhhhh…

I know that it’s no longer Thanksgiving, nor pumpkin season, but I’m confident you can find it somewhere within your heart to bake this version. I’m pretty sure it’s one of the best pies I’ve EVER made, so there’s that.

Instead of a traditional crust, I thought I’d go with a gluten free version using the ever-amazing Pamela’s gluten free graham crackers. I love being able to create recipes that everyone can enjoy during the holiday season, especially when you can’t tell that it’s gluten free or dairy free! Obviously if we’re making a graham cracker crust, why wouldn’t we make it with chocolate graham crackers?! The best graham crackers out there and very underrated.

Truth be told, my favorite part of this pumpkin pie isn’t just the ingredients. The texture is out of this world creamy, rich and velvety smooth. Not only that, but the good amount of spices in this recipe won me over; it’s gingery with a hint of nutmeg and cloves. LOVE LOVE LOVE.

I’m probably going to make this for my birthday dessert tomorrow so that has to be proof how much I love it, right?. Enjoy! xo.
