Prep Time 15 mins

Total Time 1 hr 10 mins
Servings: 10 servings
- 1 unbaked Gluten-Free Vegan Pie Crust (oil-free) Or your favorite pie crust recipe
- 15 ounces pumpkin puree
- 1/4 cup rolled oats Use certified GF oats if needed; can also sub 3 Tbsp GF flour or almond flour
- 3 Tbsp almond or cashew butter, smooth Omit or sub seed butter or additional oats for nut-free option
- 1 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk such as almond, flax, rice or oat
- 1/2 cup plus 1 Tbsp maple syrup
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 3 Tbsp corn starch or 2 1/2 Tbsp arrowroot
- 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- 3/4 tsp cinnamon plus extra for garnish
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prebake the pie crust for about 10 minutes, or follow package directions if using a store-bought crust.
Combine all filling ingredients in a blender (pumpkin, oats, nut/seed butter, milk, maple syrup, vanilla, arrowroot or corn starch, and spices). Begin by blending on low, gradually increasing to high speed. The mixuture will be thick, and you'll likely need to stop periodically to stir and get rid of air bubbles. Use the tamper if your blender comes with one.
Once the filling is smooth and creamy, pour it into the prebaked pie crust. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes or until the center looks just set. *Depending on the crust you're using, you may need to cover the edges with foil or a pie crust shield after 25 - 30 minutes to prevent it from getting too brown. If using my gluten-free crust recipe, the crust should be okay uncovered the whole time.
Let the pie cool to room temperature, then cover and refrigerate at least 3 to 4 hours before serving. See Notes for serving suggestions.
This pie is delicious with a dollop of cool and creamy nice cream or vegan whipped topping AND a dash of cinnamon <---- definitely don't skip the cinnamon!
