I’ve been so excited to share this delicious recipe with you all from Sylvie at Hollywood Homestead. Hollywood Homestead is one of my favorite Paleo bloggers, and I’m not just saying that. She puts out some incredible recipes, home schools (technically unschools), and is making Paleo work for her large family. She is so motivating to follow on Facebook and is always giving practical advice on how to transition a family over to eating Paleo. Please welcome my beloved friend Sylvie as she shares her delicious Paleo Pumpkin Pie recipe with all of us! 

Pumpkin, pumpkin, everywhere! If you’re a pumpkin addict like we are you’re eager to use pumpkin in just about everything this time of year. Now, we don’t do treats very often, mainly because they’re not always quick and way too easy to eat the whole thing (ahem, not that I would know anything about that).

But sometimes you just need to paleo-ify the greatness that is pumpkin pie! Try it this Thanksgiving, or this Sunday or heck even tomorrow!

What you will need (CRUST):

Directions (FILLING):

  1. Put 1/2 cup cashews in the food processor and blend until in fine chunks.
  2. Peel, cut and add the avocado to the mix.
  3. Blend until creamy.
  4. Place the mixture in a large bowl and add all other ingredients, starting with the pumpkin and coconut milk.
  5. Mix thoroughly (I used a Cuisinart “smart stick” hand blender, which worked perfectly).

Directions (CRUST):

  1. Add all ingredients to the food processor and mix until it looks like dough.
  2. Grease a pie pan and place dough in the center.
  3. Use your hands to stretch dough until it reaches the edges of the pan.
  4. Pour in the filling mixture.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for 60 minutes.
  6. Enjoy!

    What can I substitute for the almond flour? I have a sensitivity to almonds. Thank you

      Use Coconut flour instead of Almond flour. I think that would work well.

    Could I substitute almonds for the cashews? Or pumpkin seeds? I’m allergic to tree nuts. :( Otherwise this recipe sounds perfect!!!

    Looks like you can use sunflower seed flour!


    You could certainly try that but I’m not sure how it would work as I haven’t tested it.


    Glad you liked! Enjoy!

    I can’t wait to try this recipe! I’ve been trying to do the gradual switch over to paleo and this will be a great experiment.

    Could you use unsweetened almond milk instead of coconut milk? Also, is the coconut oil in the crust 2 T liquid or solid?
    Thank you!
