Paleo Pumpkin Pecan Pie

It’s holiday season, but more importantly, it’s pie season! There’s always a debate on Thanksgiving about which pie to make and which pie is better, but let me settle that for you by combining my two favorite pies together with this paleo pumpkin pecan pie.

Paleo Pumpkin Pecan Pie Recipe

I usually tend to reach for pumpkin pie first, but I do love the crunchy texture of pecan pie as well. In this recipe, pumpkin pie filling is layered under the pecan pie filling, and the result is so ridiculously delicious and satisfying.

It has the smooth velvety pumpkin on the bottom and the sweet and nutty pecan halves on the top, all on top of a flaky paleo pie crust that’s a winner every time.

Keep the Crust from Burning

Since there’s a double layer to this paleo pumpkin pecan pie, it does take longer to cook than other pies. Because of this, the crust could darken and burn while cooking, so I do recommend that you cover the crust with aluminum foil. Also, for the last 20 minutes of baking time, you’ll need to bake the whole thing covered so the filling can cook through and the pecan topping won’t turn blacka.

Make It Ahead of Time

Since holiday hosting can be stressful and overwhelming, this paleo pumpkin pecan pie will be a dessert that’ll make your life a bit easier because it can be made 3 days in advance! Honestly, when I’m hosting Thanksgiving, the last thing I wanna think about is how I can fit another dish in the oven. Having things like this pie that I can make or prep ahead of time is always welcome.

What’s your favorite pie? I think this one might be my new favorite, and I’ll be making it over and over again every year!

Paleo Pumpkin Cornbread (With No Corn)

If you are a pumpkin lover, you are going to want to make this Paleo Pumpkin Cornbread made with coconut flour and honey and no grains! It’s amazing drizzled with honey and butter.Paleo Pumpkin Cornbread

My very first pumpkin recipe of this season is here, and it does not disappoint! If you avoid most grains like me and are missing some cornbread in your life, this Paleo Pumpkin Cornbread may just fulfill your cravings. I used to be OBSESSED with cornbread growing up and used to get cornbread muffins anytime I saw them, so I’m so excited that this recipe turned out so well.

Paleo Pumpkin Cornbread Recipe

These days, corn and gluten bother my stomach, so I have to make my own paleo and grain free version that I can enjoy. And with Fall just around the corner, I thought it would be super tasty to add one of my favorite ingredients this time of year: pumpkin!

The result is pretty darn fantastic, if I do say so myself. While there is no corn in this, the combination of coconut flour and honey really do impart that cornbread flavor well with the slight sweetness, and the added pumpkin creates another level of flavor that goes so well with the rest of the ingredients.

Texture Difference from Regular Cornbread

Because this Paleo Pumpkin Cornbread is gluten- and grain-free and has pumpkin added in, the texture will be a bit different than regular cornbread that you are familiar with. Pumpkin has a ton of moisture so whenever you add it to a recipe, especially baked goods, you have to expect a moister and denser result.

If you don’t like how moist it turns out, I highly recommend you take individual cut squares and toast them in the oven or on a pan. This will dry it up a bit and firm it up a bit like a regular cornbread. Plus, the toasty crispiness you get from outer layer and edges just makes it even more delicious, which I’m a huge fan of!

This Paleo Pumpkin Cornbread is best served with some chili or soup, but you can eat it alone like I do after toasting it with a pat of butter and a drizzle of honey. I purposely didn’t make it too sweet so I can add a bit more honey to it afterwards, because it’s seriously so good that way!

Grain Free & Paleo Blender Pumpkin Bread [VIDEO]

Warm up your belly in the morning with a cup of coffee and this grain free and paleo Blender Pumpkin Bread. So easy to make and so flavorful!

Grain Free & Paleo Blender Pumpkin Bread

It’s finally getting chilly enough to put on a sweatshirt in the mornings and nights here in LA county, and that means it’s Fall in SoCal. And judging by how much you all LOVED my Pumpkin Spice Latte recipe, it looks like most of us are ready for all things pumpkin. I know I definitely am.

My next pumpkin recipe is this Blender Pumpkin Bread that I’m so excited to share. I first learned about blender breads on Pinterest and the concept was so simple and brilliant. All the batter ingredients get blended together and then all you do is pour it into a baking vessel to bake it. For someone who’s not a huge baker like myself, I loved this idea and have been experimenting in the kitchen ever since.

I was so excited when I first made this Blender Pumpkin Bread because the flavor was ON POINT. And the texture is so fluffy, and it is absolutely delicious slathered with copious amounts of butter or ghee.

I don’t usually love sugary treats, but this recipe isn’t too overly sweet and really holds up well stored in the fridge. I’ve been eating it for breakfast toasted, along with a cup a coffee and a side of eggs.

If you love pumpkin, I highly recommend you try out this Blender Pumpkin Bread. It’s incredibly easy to make, and you’ll love how much moist and flavorful it is!
