Vegan, Gluten Free Sweet Potato Pie

When creating recipes for my own elimination diet I was worried that I’d never be able to figure out a real dessert that could be eaten during any phase. I was wrong, this vegan, gluten free sweet potato pie satisfies every sweet craving with the creamy texture of a perfect slice of pie. Never let anyone tell you that you can’t indulge under so many restrictions.

In order to make the pie crust you’ll need to have finely ground oat flour. I attempted to make my own but I could never get it quite fine enough using just a food processor. I finally opted to buy some and it really made all the difference. If you choose to make your own just know that the crust might not hold its shape as well when you remove it from the pan. 

I did make my own sweet potato puree by simply boiling the peeled sweet potato cut into chunks and then using a stand mixer to make the puree. If you have canned or store bought puree that works just as well. Additionally, you can even exchange the sweet potato puree for pumpkin puree and make this recipe a pumpkin pie instead! Everything else remains the same.

I served this vegan, gluten free sweeet potato pie to a few vegan friends of mine and they were so excited about it! I was also excited to serve it with this sweetened coconut whipped cream, a totally vegan alternative to whipped cream that has more to offer than just the coconut flavor.
