Pumpkin Pie

It's Thanksgiving week and all week I'm going to feature thanksgiving seasonal recipes. Are you already planning your dinner and buying all of your recipe ingredients? Friday I will recap what I had for thanksgiving dinner to show you that vegans can have a fabulous dinner even though we don't eat meat, dairy or eggs.

I made this pie a few weeks ago and I was going to put it in my cookbook but I decided not to so here is the recipe! It's almost raw but not quite because I used oats for the crust. This is easy to whip up since you only need your food processor.

1 cup of rolled oats
8 medjool dates
1 can of pumpkin puree
15-20 medjool dates, soaked
2 tsp of vanilla extract
1 tbsp of pumpkin pie spice
A small cake pan that opens on the side

Pit then soak your 15-20 dates for about 20 minutes. After making the crust, wash out your food processor before making the filling. Place the oats and 8 dates, pitted, in your food processor and process until it forms a sticky crust. Pat the crust into the cake pan, wetting your fingers a little since the crust may stick to your fingers.

Put the pumpkin puree, soaked dates, pumpkin pie spice and vanilla extract in your food processor and process on high. Use a spoon to scoop out and spread on top of your crust. Top with pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon. Refrigerate and enjoy.
This is so delish and very simple with just the dates to sweeten it. Let me know if you end up trying this!
What are you making for Thanksgiving?

Chewy Energy Bars (no added sugar, vegan, gluten-free)

Energy bars with lot of fiber, minimal sugar and high protein are a great snack. I grab and just go and I feel full for the time that I'm out and about and I need to get things done. I love a few brands of energy bars but I also love making my own-it's easy to choose what ingredients go in them and you can make a bunch and freeze These particular bars are without sugar by default since I ran out of maple syrup. They are still so delish!

Peanut Butter Vanilla Oat Milk Smoothie

I love trying new plant-based milks even though I usually buy West Soy unsweetened soy milk. I go for milks that have the least amount of ingredients and are organic. West Soy unsweetened plain soy milk is organic soybeans and water. Beautiful. If I don't buy milk, I make it myself, either almond or oat milk. Yesterday I bought oat milk and it is DELICIOUS!

Three Ingredient Fudgy Brownies

These brownies did not come out of my brain as they are not my recipe. I found the recipe on instagram under @lilsipper. Her account is so so cool; she makes very cool, delicious looking food, mostly desserts, using very interesting ingredients and ingredients you would not think to use. For instance, this recipe is just fruit and cocoa powder and it makes the most delicious brownies. So, if you are on instagram or Facebook, follow @lilsipper. Her Facebook is @lmLilSipper.
