It’s that time of year again—pumpkin season! Who else loves this time of year?! Fall foods (especially the desserts) are all so delicious, but typically not very paleo-friendly. (BOO!) So of course, I had to make my own paleo twist on this Thanksgiving staple: pumpkin pie!
To make things even better, this recipe also has a vegan-friendly option. Simply swap out the eggs for arrowroot starch, let it sit in the refrigerator for a few more hours, and you’ve got a dessert that everyone can enjoy this Thanksgiving!
Try it out and let me know what you think: is it as good as the classic pumpkin pie? I think so!
