Easy Date-Sweetened Pumpkin Pie {oil, gluten & refined sugar free}

What is Thanksgiving without pumpkin pie?

To me, this is a main component of the holiday, and growing up it was honestly all that I looked forward to. Well, if you know me, then you know that I love to vegan-ize and health-ify my childhood favorites, so that is exactly what I did. I am here today to share with you one of my best recipes to date, a Date-Sweetened Pumpkin Pie that is oil, gluten AND refined sugar free…can I get a what what!!

We also included this recipe in our 2017 Vegan Thanksgiving Menu, check it out above!

Easy Date-Sweetened Pumpkin Pie {oil, gluten & refined sugar free} sweetsimplevegan.comThe original recipe that my mother used to make for me included lots of unhealthy ingredients, including condensed milk, evaporated milk, eggs and refined-sugar. What I want to share is a healthy alternative that is not only packed with the same amount of flavor and comfort, but will also leave you feeling light and fresh. My recipe does just that, and includes healthy plant-based ingredients including medjool dates, pumpkin puree, coconut cream and almonds.

My mom used to make pumpkin pie all through the fall season for my brother and I because we loved it so much, and having her tell me that she absolutely loved this healthy spin put a huge smile on my face.

The perfect vegan pumpkin pie for your Thanksgiving table– and it just so happens to be oil, gluten & refined sugar-free!



  • 2 1/2 cup almond flour or oat flour
  • 1/2 cup medjool dates (packed + pits removed)
  • 4 tbsp almond milk


Top with:


  1. Preheat an oven to 350°F and line a 9″ pie pan with parchment paper.
  2. In a food processor, add in all of the crust ingredients. Process until uniform and dough like. (it will stick together when pressed between your fingers.
  3. Evenly distribute crust into the bottom and sides of an 9″ pie pan. Set aside.
  4. Add the remaining ingredients into a high speed blender and run until completely smooth.
  5. Pour the filling into the crust, then place into the oven for 30 minutes.
  6. Remove and cool completely. This pie is best if set in the refrigerator overnight to thicken, but can be eaten after it has cooled if desired.


  • Crust adapted from bae Feasting On Fruit 🙂
  • You can try other flours instead of chickpea, as this ingredient is used solely just to thicken. I haven’t tried another flour besides chickpea, but I have been told by a reader that oat flour will work. Please let me know your results 🙂

  1. I used another recipe that called for 2/3 c. sugar in it and instead I used 6 dates, then did second pie with dates. Still plenty sweet may even cut back to 4 dates next time. Also, cornstarch was the thickener and it turned out great! I also had coconut milk for the first one but then used homemade oat milk for the second and that allowed me to cut back on cornstarch to 2 Tbs. plus I used 1 Tbs of flax seed in the second pie. The recipe called for 2.5 tsp. of Pumpkin pie spice. Delicious!!

  2. Thank you for this recipe! I didn’t have almond or chickpea flour so I made my own oat flour and it turned out perfect! Also did not have coconut cream so I used almond milk and it was not as thick but still delicious! Thank you so much have a blessed Thanksgiving!

  3. This looks like one of the best pumpkin pie recipes I’ve seen that doesn’t have lots of unnecessary fillers! How is the texture? The few that I’ve made in the past with arrowroot powder end up being a bit slimy and too jiggly :(.

    1. The cream that I used was not solid but a very thick liquid. I would suggest getting full fat coconut milk if you would like to use that.

  4. I think I am going to need a personal one of these all for me, because date sweetened + pumpkin pie = I’m not sharing!!

    1. Yes you can try regular flour as well, it’s just to thicken. I haven’t tried another flour, but I think that it will work! 🙂
