The 'Minimalist Baker' recently published a recipe for making a batch of vegan pumpkin treats that are perfect for Thanksgiving. With the holidays fast approaching, many consumers are thinking about what to serve at their annual Thanksgiving dinner. Although pumpkin pie is a beloved holiday dessert, not everyone is able to consume dishes made from eggs and dairy-products.
For those who are eager to accommodate all of their guest's needs, these vegan pumpkin treats are the perfect solution. Instead of using store-bought crust, this recipe suggests making homemade pastry out of nothing more than flour and coconut oil. The pumpkin filling is made from a combination of pumpkin puree, almond milk and pumpkin pie spice. Instead of using refined sugar, the filling is sweetened with light muscovado sugar and a bit of maple syrup.
The combination of healthy vegan-friendly ingredients makes these bite-sized pumpkin pies the perfect Thanksgiving dessert.
