Pie Topping Ideas:
Note: If you’d prefer a vegan pumpkin cheesecake, simply use my recipe for Vegan Cheesecake (or this low carb and sugar free Keto Cheesecake), replacing the yogurt with pumpkin puree and adding pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon.
Pumpkin Pie Ingredients
This recipe calls for basic ingredients, including flour, sugar, cinnamon, pumpkin spice, and roasted or canned pumpkin.
For the milk of choice, feel free to use your favorite – I love the smooth and creamy texture of the pie made with coconut milk, but almond milk, soymilk, oat milk, or other nondairy milks can also be used.
All of the ingredients can usually be found at Whole Foods or in regular grocery stores.
If you want to use an egg substitute instead of the flax eggs to bind the filling, I’ve had success subbing 1 tbsp ener-g egg replacer (made of potato starch and tapioca flour) for the 2 tbsp ground flax.
Vegan Pie Crust Recipe
Feel free to use your favorite store-bought crust, homemade pie crust, or the following recipe.
If you want a crustless version, I’ve also included a link below to a pumpkin pie with no crust.
Pie Crust Recipe: Combine 1 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry or all purpose flour, 1 tsp salt, 1/3 cup sugar or xylitol, and 1/2 cup canola or vegetable oil. Stir to form a dough, slowly adding a few tbsp of water if needed just until it sticks together but is not gummy. Press into a 9-inch baking pan.

Above, watch the video of how to make vegan pumpkin pie
- 15 oz pumpkin puree
- 12 oz milk of choice (canned coconut milk yields thickest, creamiest result)
- 2 tbsp ground flax
- 1 tbsp pure vanilla extract
- 3 tbsp flour
- 1/2 cup sugar, unrefined if desired
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- 1/2 tsp salt
- prepared pie crust, or use the crust recipe I’ve posted above
Whisk the first four ingredients, and let sit at least 10 minutes (or refrigerate overnight). Preheat oven to 400 F. Combine all ingredients, pour into a 9-inch pie crust, and bake 28 minutes. It should look underdone when you take it out. Let cool, then refrigerate at least 5 hours uncovered, during which time it will firm up. View Nutrition Facts
