The BEST Vegan Pumpkin Pie (gluten-free, soy-free)

All I have to say is WOW.

At 23 years old, I have officially made my first pie. Not just any pie, but The Best Vegan Pumpkin Pie. Not to toot my own horn but it’s freaking amazing.

The fall season is the perfect time to make a pumpkin pie…especially for Thanksgiving dinner.

If you are looking for a healthier version of pumpkin pie. Stop right here – this is the best one. It’s super simple, delicious and beyond easy to make.

Easiest Vegan Pumpkin Pie Ever.

The best vegan pumpkin pie starts with an oatmeal cookie crust. YUM! The filling is made in the blender and then poured right into the crust, does it get any easier than that?!

100% plant-based, gluten-free, oil-free optional and WFPB. I dare you to find a pumpkin pie with cleaner ingredients than this one.

Once the pie is done being prepared, it goes into the oven for only 35 minutes. I am not a fan of complicated recipes that take all day to make so if you’re busy but still want to have a pie ready for your family + friends, I gotcha covered.

I promise you, if you bring this to Thanksgiving dinner, your guests will be SO impressed with how delicious this tastes (and that it’s totally vegan).

    It would be great if your site had a “go to recipe” button.

    1. Danielle Keith says:

      Thanks for the feedback! 🙂 Will look into that.

  2. Anne says:

    I have not tried this yet. Wondering what size pie dish you used. The total volume of the pie filling does not seem like enough to fill my 10 inch pie pans.

    1. Danielle Keith says:

      It will fill the 10 inch pan!

  3. Jolie says:

    Love this seasonal favorite5 stars

  4. Lisa Kaemmerlen says:

    We have allergies in our house. Do you think sun butter would work in place of almond butter? It is so much thinner than a nut butter.

    1. Danielle Keith says:

      Yes sun butter will work!

  5. Laura Westcott says:

    Just made this to try before serving on Thanksgiving. It’s absolutely delicious!!! I was wondering if I could get the crust a little crispier by cooking the pie crust for 10 minutes or so before filling it. Or perhaps use less applesauce to bind it?5 stars

    1. Danielle Keith says:

      Hi! So glad it turned out well. You can definitely cook the crust for a bit longer before adding the filling if you found it wasn’t crispy enough for you! report back. More thanksgiving recipes to come!

  6. Jeannie says:

    This recipe turned out SO good! I used about 3 cups of cooked blue Hubbard squash that I had left over and it baked up perfectly! I will definitely be making this again! Thank you!5 stars

  7. Joanne says:

    This looks really good. I am gluten, dairy and sugar free and can only use Stevia. Would you know if I can replace the maple syrup and by how much?

    1. Danielle Keith says:

      Hmm, I am not sure as I have only tried it with maple syrup. If you try it with stevia, let me know how it turns out!

  8. Jessica says:

    Has anyone ever tried this with a muffin pan? With the pandemic raging, I’m trying to make some individual mini pies for folks.

    1. Danielle Keith says:

      You can totally try this!
