Today we are doing a very simple, yet tasty plant-based pumpkin pie to wow your guest! Let’s dive into it!

What makes this pumpkin pie epic?

We are taking this classic Thanksgiving pumpkin pie to a whole new level! Here is an easy, flavorful, and plant-based recipe to impress your guests.
This pie is made of whole foods and is very low in sugar. The crust is made of flax seeds which mimic the coagulation of egg whites. Plus, it is rich in omega-3, which are great for brain and skin health. Moreover, we are baking with no refined sugar since we are using coconut sugar and maple syrup! So let’s bake it, team!
