Pumpkin pie recipe=solved. POST YOUR HALLOWEEN RECIPES PEOPLE :D

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created October 20, 2012 at 7:27 PM

So Halloween's coming up soon, and I want to have something tasty on the 31st, because I'm not going to eat candy, full of hydrogenated oils and soy and nasty stuff like that :P I'm just going to give all the leftover candy to my friends that can eat anything and still stay skinny. So I was thinking I'd make a pumpkin pie of sorts. I can get pumpkins, coconut flour, and almond flour. Preferably give me a recipe that uses coconut sugar/nectar (low glycemic index). Though I also have stevita (which is stevia and erythritol) and honey. Not agave, I don't like agave and it's full of fructose or something isn't it? Try to make it lowish-carb please, not trying to gain any weight here, but still tasty enough that the rest of my family would enjoy it. Also any good low-carb halloween recipes are welcome ^_^

Edit: Title says it all, just post your favorite Halloweeny recipes ^_^

I've been burned more than once just googling a recipe, and getting halfway through or even all the way through and realizing that it hadn't been properly vetted because it either didn't work or didn't taste good.

Downvoted because Googling is not at all equal to getting a recommendation from people on PH, some of whom she has seen many posts from and may have recognized similar tastes. She could Google it and wade through variations and read comments from a whole bunch of people she doesn't know and who may be stupid, or she could get recommendations from people whom she may agree with about other things.

I was just going to make my own. Here are the ingredients: 2 1/2 cups walnuts, 1 teaspoon baking soda, 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt, 2 tablespoons butter, melted. Highly processed eh? Sure : P

There's no reason to buy nut flour for a crust. Just get some fresh nuts and blitz them in the food processor. Or just buy from a reputable vendor. There's no excuse for eating rancid food, sure, but we can also be trusted to do our own quality control.

I just whipped up a whole 'pie' of this last night, improvising from my old non-paleo pie recipe. Delicious with both raw heavy cream and coconut oil, a dollop of maple syrup, and hubbard squash.

nut flour crusts are not healthy, as many in the paleo sphere make them out to be. As long as you're not celiac just do a wheat flour crust. Nut flours are highly processed, prolly rancid, and loaded with calories. Just do a "normal" crust with flour, enjoy it, and call it a day.

Looks easy and tasty, thank you :-) I've been needing a quick easy dessert recipe since I stopped eating chocolate like a month ago, and this looks delicious ^_^

I think it was definitely a question worth asking. Sure, there are literally hundreds of Paleo pumpkin pie recipes on the web. But there is something to be said for someone taking the time to answer with a recipe that they have used and that they highly recommend (preferably with the reasons the recommend it). Please do not feel stupid. Google is great. But real pie options from folks here who have made the recipe is great, too!

Here is a link to the "Ultimate Walnut Pie Crust with Pumpkin Filling" by Mark's Daily Apple. I have not made the crust due to a loved one's nut allergy, but the filling really is good:

http://www.marksdailyapple.com/primal-paleo-pie-crust/#axzz29sOcJYsi

I plan to use the crust found in this recipe, which looks delicious but still need to test (although Against All Grain is a very reliable source!):

Good Luck!!

I've been making pumpkin custard in the microwave this week (since each serving only uses 1/4 can you can try a bunch of variations) based on this www.delightedmomma.com/2012/10/the-two-minute-pumpkin-pie-paleo.html. I preferred it without the almond meal and baking powder though, and increased baking time because it was a more liquid batter.

-One egg

-a few tbsp. of melted coconut oil or heavy cream

-1/2 c. canned pumpkin

-a little vanilla extract

-1/2 tsp. of pumpkin pie spice

-a small drizzle of honey, maple syrup, or molasses (stevia was nasty in it, blerg, almost chucked that one)

-a pinch of salt

Mix it well in a coffee cup and nuke it for 2-3 minutes.

"Candy Corn" Fruit Cup (use fresh mandarins, pineapple and grassfed cream or coconut whip instead)

Jack-o-lantern Sweet potato fries

Shrunken heads in cider (obviously just make the lemonade from scratch and use honey)

Pumpkin coconut whipped cream to use on top of paleo baked goods (candy cigarettes) or on a pumpkin smoothie

Pumpkin has always been the number one leading food in Halloween celebration. People do always carve this pumpkin into such a way that it turns into a lantern.

This is a case where Google comes in very handy:

Those should get you started.
