Everyday Paleo Pumpkin Pie

A healthy option to traditional pumpkin pie and oh so yummy!

Crust:
½ cup hazelnuts
1 cup pecans
4 tbsp melted ghee or pasture butter
Pinch sea salt

Filling:
1 (14 ounce) box unsweetened organic pure pumpkin puree
2 tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp ground cloves
¼ tsp grated fresh ginger or ground ginger
2 pasture eggs
½ cup raw organic honey
½ cup full-fat canned coconut milk

 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Place nuts in a food processor and process until finely ground; make sure you stop before the nuts start to turn into nut butter.
Pour the ground nuts into a small mixing bowl, add the melted ghee and salt, and mix into a thick dough.
Using your hands, spread the dough evenly into a pie pan and bake for 10-15 minutes or until the crust starts to brown.
While the crust is in the oven, mix all the pie filling ingredients with a mixer.
Once the crust is out of the oven, pour the filling into the crust, return the pie to the oven, and bake for an additional 45 minutes.
