Sweet Potato Pie with Nut Crust (Vegan)

I made this at our (Canadian) Thanksgiving but felt that since we were fast approaching the US Thanksgiving, and many of my followers on twitter are Americans and vegan I thought this would be a great time to get this fabulous recipe up on the blog. Uber delicious and terribly addictive. I used nuts as the base of my crust because I am gluten-free and for the most part unless they are sprouted grain free too, however if you are allergic to nuts you can an substitution for pie crust here.

Step 1 (Mix the Pumpkin Pie Spice)

1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/8 ground ginger
1/8 ground cloves
1/8 nutmeg

Step 2 (Make the Crust):

1/3 cup toasted walnuts
1/3 cup of crushed and toasted macadamia nuts
1/3 cup toasted almonds
1 cup of Mary’s Gone Crackers original crumbs.
1/2 Pumpkin Pie Spice
Throw into a food processor and grind until it looks like this:

Add 5 Tbsp of organic coconut oil to nut mixture and mould into a pie pan

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 3 (Make the Pie Filling)

4 Large Sweet Potatoes
1/2 Cup of Honey
2 Tbsp coconut flour
Remaining Pumpkin Pie Spice
1 Tsp of Madagascar Vanilla
1/2 Cup of Coconut Milk

(Roast ahead) 4 large sweet potatoes in skin for 45 – 6o minutes. Once cooled remove skin and place in a mixing bowl.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

With a hand mixer, mix sweet potatoes and remaining ingredients

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Until it looks like this consistency

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Preheat Oven to 350 degrees
Add mixed sweet potato to pie crust smooth out as evenly as possible
Bake in the middle of the oven for 40 minutes (if crust browns too quickly cover with foil).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Enjoy this recipe from my home to yours!
