  • Prep Time: 35 min
  • Cook Time: 15 min
  • Total Time: 50 min
  • Yield: 16-20 bites 1x

Ingredients

Scale

Crust Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup oat flour (or sorghum flour)
  • 1/3 cup millet flour
  • 1/3 cup arrowroot starch/flour
  • 1/4 cup brown rice flour
  • 3/4 tsp xanthan gum
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup vegan butter (I use “Earth Balance Vegan Buttery Sticks”)
  • 1 1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 35 tbsp cold water

Filling Ingredients

  • 1 cup pumpkin purée 
  • 2 tbsp dairy free milk (I use “So Delicious Unsweetened Coconut milk”)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 23 tbsp coconut sugar (or brown sugar)
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup 
  • 1/2 tbsp brown rice flour 
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp ginger 

Instructions

For the Crust:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk oat flour, millet flour, arrowroot starch, brown rice flour, xanthan gum, and salt.
  3. Using a fork or pastry blender, cut the butter into the flour mixture until crumbly.
  4. Add apple cider vinegar and cold water and mix until a dough is formed.
  5. Place the dough onto a floured piece of parchment paper (I use more brown rice flour for this) and roll into a circle about 1/4″ thick.  Flour the top of the dough as needed to avoid sticking.
  6. Using a 3″ round cookie cutter or biscuit cutter, cut circles in the pie dough.
  7. Place circles in a greased mini muffin tin.  Gently press the circles into the muffin tin and use your fingers to round the edges into a mini pie crust.
  8. Continue steps 5-7 until all dough is used and you have 16-20 mini pie crusts.

For the Pumpkin Filling:

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together all ingredients.
  2. Spoon the filling into each mini pie crust.  Fill them almost to the top of the crust.
  3. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the edges are firm and starting to brown.
  4. Let the pumpkin pie bites cool on a cooling rack or place in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  5. Optionally, top with dairy free whip cream (I use “So Delicious Coco Whip”) and sprinkle with cinnamon.

Notes

I do not advise using this filling for a regular pumpkin pie.  Traditional pumpkin pie uses eggs to create a firm pie that can be sliced.  Since these are individual pie cups and don’t need sliced, it works perfect for this recipe.
