I absolutely love pumpkin pie, but I don’t enjoy how sugary it can be (one slice has around 25 grams of sugar). Pure pumpkin puree is such a wonderful ingredient to use in recipes because it’s chock-full of vitamins, antioxidants and fiber.

This simple recipe is dairy free and gluten-free and combines pumpkin and coconut cream, plus a small amount of pure maple syrup to add a touch of sweetness (and delicious flavor). The warming cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg tie everything together. I like a little added crunch, so I topped mine with roasted pecans, but you could also garnish this with granola, walnuts or toasted pumpkin seeds.
