Healthy Pumpkin Pie recipe

I’ve always loved pumpkin pie.  Pumpkin is really healthy and it’s not hard to make a healthy version of the traditional pumpkin pie.

Straightupfood.com has a great recipe.  What I like about the recipe is that there is no sugar, salt, oil or animal proteins used.  I used all organic ingredients. For convenience I used organic canned pumpkin (with a BPA free can).   Fresh organic pumpkin would be even better.

Because  rolled oats (ground into flour) are used instead of flour, it is also gluten-free.

The recipe calls for 8 Medjool dates in the filling.  If you like really sweet desserts, use a few more. I plan to make this recipe again tonight so I’m using more to make it a little sweeter.  Although it was definitely sweet with 8 dates.

The pie was definitely more delicious the next day after being refrigerated.
