This Maple Vegan Pumpkin Pie is like no other. Besides the fact that it’s entirely vegan; it’s sweet, but not too sweet, full of great spices, and and all around amazing! The pecan + walnut crumbled topping adds a nice crunch and additional sweetness to every bite. This pie is a perfect staple for the Fall season and your Thanksgiving day.
Surprisingly, I’m not a huge fan of Pumpkin Pie when it comes to my favorite pies to eat. However, because it’s the Fall season and this recipe was requested by my readers, I chose to give it another shot.
I must say that I am pleasantly surprised at how amazing this tastes! I almost thought it was Sweet Potato Pie (which is my Fave by the way!). Haha.
Unlike most pies which get a bad rep for being kind of firm and almost stringy in texture, this recipe creates a nice smooth and creamy texture that will leave you wanting another slice….and another slice…..and maybe one more!
The pumpkin spices aren’t hiding in this one, so if you love flavor–this pumpkin pie has it right!
To make things even better, this recipe is super duper easy! I literally tossed all the ingredients together in a bowl, mixed well, and wallah! Per usual, I like to use Bob Red Mill’s Unbleached All-Purpose Flour as my “main” favorite brand when it comes to flour.
It’s totally organic and it works with my digestive system, since I am sensitive to Gluten. As for sugar, I use organic pure Cane Sugar a lot, however, I love to use organic Brown Sugar for the recipes that need a little of the molasses that brown sugar contains.
Unfortunately, there aren’t many brown sugars that are vegan approved, however, the Sugar in the Raw brand is one that is and I love using it!
You can shop online for vegan products using Amazon Fresh (My personal Go-to place!) or Jet.com, which has their own Vegan section where you can find many great alternatives for your baking needs or perhaps for cooking, etc.
For an even easier process, I used a store-bought pie crust instead of making my own, which made things seamless. Let it bake for an hour on 350 degrees and you can make the topping once your pie has hit the last 15 minutes mark.
With that being said, this recipe is a great idea for Thanksgiving and it is a sure crowd pleaser in every way! The holiday just wouldn’t be the same without a Pumpkin Pie, right? Your family and friends will be super satisfied and licking their plates at the end of their final bite of this pie (I know I was!).
