Amazing Low-FODMAP Pumpkin Pie by Sarah Raplee

I’m Sarah Raplee, author of Paranormal and Steampunk Romance Stories.

I’VE ALWAYS LOVED PUMPKIN PIE. It’s my favorite. But now that I’m on a Low FODMAP Diet, my pumpkin pie has to be dairy-free, wheat-free and soy-free. It doesn’t have to be pumpkin-free, but I can only indulge in one slice per day, so it must be AMAZING! I savor pumpkin pie one tiny bite at a time.

In my efforts to find a really AMAZING pumpkin pie recipe, I modified a to-die-for recipe by Gluten-Free HomemakerLinda Etherton called Pumpkin Pie – Totally from Scratch. (Follow the link for the original recipe.)

I LOVE Bob’s Red Mill products. I use their gluten-free pie crust mix to make AMAZING pie crust.  (http://www.bobsredmill.com/gluten-free-pie-crust-mix.html ) This crust does not crumble like so many others! And it tastes like pie crust.

Here is my recipe for Amazing Low-FODMAP Pumpkin Pie:

·        1 gluten-free pie crust
·        1¾ cups mashed pumpkin
·        ¾ cup sugar
·        2 eggs
·        ¾ cup almond milk
·        ½ teaspoon vanilla
·        ½ teaspoon salt
·        ½ teaspoon cinnamon
·        1½ teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1.     Combine all the ingredients (except the pie crust) using a fork or electric mixer to mix them together.
2.     Pour it into an uncooked pie crust.
3.     Bake at 400 degrees 45-50 minutes.
4.     Let cool before cutting.

Happy Holidays! I hope you savor every morsel. ~ Sarah Raplee

So glad you've been able to create a recipe that works!!! I'm realizing that so many foods that I "Loved" are not as hard to stay away from as I'd once thought. Feeling good and having more energy is an incentive for me to stay away from flour and sugar. It certainly helps that I found a chocolate mint tea that satisfies that chocolate-mint taste bud. Should probably stop by Trader Joes and see if they still have it in stock and get another box.

Finding food that works for you is sooooo important. This time of year I find that overload on sweet things. I think it's because the rest of the year I try to avoid them. Maybe overloading is a good thing, so I start 2017 out with zero desire for sugary treats.

I'm going to have to stop by Trader Joe's to check out that chocolate mint tea, Judith!

Yes, finding food that works for you IS soooo important, Maggie. I never want to be as sick as I was before the doctor put me on a Low FODMAP Diet! Thanks for stopping by.
