My husband loves this vegan pumpkin pie recipe. As October approaches, the pumpkin craze is upon us, so I decided to join the excitement. Although tiny, these little pumpkin pies will satisfy your sweet cravings without compromising your diet.
So, when I saw the mini pumpkin tins in the grocery store, I grabbed a few other ingredients, and I quickly had a cute and tasty treat for dessert.
Although many people don’t know it, Nabisco Grahams Original Crackers are vegan. There are two ways you can make the crust; you can use vegan butter or you can use dates.
First and foremost, dates are less fattening if you are following a low-fat diet. I provided both versions in the Vegan Pumpkin Pie Recipe for your preference.
I also chose to use spicy, sweet nuts instead of whipped coconut topping. Trader Joes has wonderful Spicy/Sweet Pecans, which taste wonderful with the sweet pumpkin.
Although there are many vegan pumpkin pie recipes, I make mine with maple syrup instead of sugar. I also use arrowroot as a thickener instead of corn starch.
