Easy, Grain-Free Pumpkin Pie

nutrition Dec 08, 2013

While I’m not a fan of the cold weather the fall and winter brings, I am a fan of the delicious, seasonal veggies.

I simply cannot get enough pumpkin, butternut squash, and acorn squash. These naturally sweet vegetables are loaded with nutrients and can be incorporated into meals in a variety of ways.

One of my favorite desserts right now is this easy, grain-free pumpkin pie. It only requires a few ingredients and is a healthier alternative to the pies you find at the grocery store. Did I mention, it’s delicious?!?
