Decadent Vegan Pumpkin Pie (sliced or bites!)

Fall is here, fall is here! And so is this Decadent Vegan Pumpkin Pie…

I know everyone says fall is their favorite season, but fall is REALLY, REALLY my favorite season. I could go into a detail of all of the typical fall things everyone loves, but you know them (drinking hot coffee in a flannel in the cool morning air? yes please.) Most importantly, I’ll be heading to the mountains next weekend to embrace the fall season in full effect (and go on some epic hikes). Maybe I’ll make another one of these vegan pumpkin pies to bring along….

These pies are perfect for those who want a lightened up version of their favorite dessert. These pies are sweetened with a touch of maple syrup and {naturally sweet} dates. Dried mulberries, another dried fruit, also brings sweetness from its natural sugar, with some extra fiber too, to keep your energy levels steady!

Cut into Slices

…or into Bites!

I added a dollup of full-fat coconut yogurt on top, or you could simply add whipped cream…it was INCREDIBLE! Definitely don’t forget to add this topping! 

What is your favorite way to enjoy Pumpkin this fall? It can be baked and cooked into SO many different dishes and desserts, it can be so fun to get creative in the kitchen. Pumpkin is a wonderful way to add in fiber and vitamin A to your dishes! Sprinkle plenty of cinnamon on top to finish off the pie – another great anti-inflammatory ingredient and beneficial in balancing blood sugar (aka no awful sugar crashes!).

The crust is the best part – if you don’t want to make this whole pie, at least try the cookie crust, it is TO DIE FOR! Packed with healthy fats from cashews, plus some fiber and natural sweetness from the dried mulberries.
