These little pumpkin pies are the perfect size for a light dessert, snack or even as a breakfast treat. I’ve been baking up a bunch, and it feels like Thanksgiving everyday. Minus the painful fullness from turkey and side dish overload, of course.

Little secret…I’ve been eating these little guys for breakfast. Because eggs + pumpkin = breakfast, am I right? Of course I am.

Bonus, these little flavor bombs are also gluten free, refined sugar free and Paleo. Paleo pumpkin pie in mini form! Yum!

{Recipe} Paleo Pumpkin Pie Bites

Paleo-Pumpkin-Pie-1" title="{Recipe} Paleo Pumpkin Pie Bites" alt="{Recipe} Paleo Pumpkin Pie Bites" />

Ingredients

  • 1 can (15oz) pumpkin
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 2 Tbs coconut sugar (optional for sweeter pies)
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 2 Tbs browned butter (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F
  2. Combine all ingredients except the eggs in a small saucepan over low heat.
  3. Heat, stirring frequently, until mixture starts to bubble, about 5 minutes.
  4. In a medium sized bowl, whisk eggs.
  5. Temper eggs by adding the heated pumpkin mixture into the eggs a few Tbs at a time while stirring constantly.
  6. Continue adding pumpkin mixture into eggs until completely combined.
  7. Optional: At this point, you may strain the mixture through a fine mesh strainer for smoother pies.
  8. Pour mixture into cupcake cups/liners and bake at 350F for 25 minutes or until set.
  9. Allow to cool completely before serving.
  10. Top with whipped cream or whipped coconut cream.

Notes

- For whipped cream I like to whip 1 cup heavy cream with 1 Tbs maple syrup.

- For whipped coconut cream, turn a can of coconut milk upside down and refrigerate overnight. The next day, flip can right side up, open and pour off the coconut water. Scoop out the remaining cream and whip with 1 tsp maple syrup.
