Author Notes

These no-bake pumpkin pie tarts are so easy to make and so delicious! They are also vegan and gluten-free.

With Fall in full swing and Halloween and Thanksgiving just around the corner, these pumpkin pie tarts are the perfect way to celebrate the season!

The other day at the grocery store, I bought some sugar pumpkins and decided I was going to try to make something with them. I have never tried roasting my own pumpkins – but I always remember my mom saying they make better pumpkin pies than canned pumpkin. Since I have been vegan and gluten-free, I thought pumpkin pie was out of the question because of the eggs, cream, and wheat. This was my inspiration behind these vegan, gluten-free pumpkin pie tarts! —dotandolive

What You'll Need
  • Crust
  • 2 cups almonds
  • 3 tablespoons coconut sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

  1. Add all crust ingredients into a food processor.

  6. Scoop into crust.
  7. Chill for about an hour before serving.
