  • Crust

    • 1 1/4 cups raw walnut halves
    • 1 cup Just Almond Meal
    • 2 Tbsp egg whites
    • 2 tsp cinnamon
    • a pinch of salt
  • Filling

    • 1 15-oz can of TJ's Organic Pumpkin
    • 3/4 cup TJ's canned Coconut Cream
    • 2 Tbsp egg whites
    • 3 large eggs
    • 1 Tbsp blackstrap molasses
    • 3 tsp Trader Darwin's Stevia Extract
    • 1 tsp vanilla extract
    • 1 tsp TJ's pumpkin pie spice
    • 2 tsp cinnamon


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. You're going to bake the crust first for 15 minutes, then later reduce the temperature to 350 to cook the filling.


    1. In a food processor with the "S" blade, grind the nuts together with the almond meal and egg whites and salt. Consistency should be somewhat wet but able to hold together like a ball.
    2. Place the ball of dough into the center of a pie plate, and push with your fingers to coat the bottom and sides evenly.
    3. Place in oven in the middle rack and cook for 15 minutes. Remove from oven when done and let cool for at least 5 minutes before pouring in the pie filling.

    1. Turn oven temperature to 350 degrees F.
    2. Blend all ingredients together either by hand or with a mixer on the lowest setting.
    3. Pour filling into the pie crust.
    4. Place in oven on middle rack and cook for 45 to 50 minutes, or until the center of the pie has fully set.
    5. Remove and cool for at least 1 hour before eating.
