I have a question about the recipe "You Won't Believe it's Vegan Pumpkin Pie" from Gena Hamshaw. Are there any substitutes for tapioca starch and blackstrap molasses? Thanks :)

Hi Rachel-
You could probably substitute arrowroot powder or cornstarch for the tapioca starch, since they are acting as thickening agents in this recipe.
If it were me, I wouldn't sub out the blackstrap molasses, since it is acting as a flavoring agent in the pie. You could use regular molasses, sorghum or maple syrup-- all three will add a different flavor profile to the recipe.
