Gluten-free and Paleo Pumpkin Pie

Gluten-Free and Paleo Pumpkin Pie

This pie comes together swiftly and seamlessly and involves zero guilt. The crust is made with almond flour, so it's paleo, and the pie filling calls for coconut milk, eggs and maple syrup for sweetener. Make it once and I bet you'll be making this pie a lot more frequently. It's simple, sensational and so good.
