17 Gorgeous Pumpkin Pie Recipes for *Every* Type of Diet

Whether you’re hosting the ultimate Thanksgiving dinner, planning a killer Friendsgiving or just happily attending one or both as a guest, there are bound to be folks at the table with diet and food allergy concerns. Maybe it’s even you. Before you delete pumpkin pie from your plate, we’ve got your back. From classic to low-fat to Paleo, sugar-free to dairy-free to gluten-free and even raw (yes, raw!), here’s a mouthful of drool-worthy inspo to prove you *can* have your pie — and eat it too.

1. Easy Homemade Pumpkin Pie: This is the classic pumpkin pie, made easy. Because “no diet” is still an eating plan for a lucky few, let’s not forget the classic pie that started the whole pumpkin spice craze. (via Creme de la Crumb)

2. Pumpkin Meringue Tarts With Whole Wheat Shortbread Crust: The whole wheat crust on these beauties is so buttery and flakey, you’d never guess it’s not your grandma’s pumpkin pie. Bonus: There’s no refined sugar in this recipe, and the flambéd meringue is irresistible. (via Baking a Moment)

3. The Ultimate Healthy Pumpkin Pie: For those watching your fat intake, this whipped delight is made creamy and delicious with the addition of Greek yogurt. Guilt-free seconds for the win! (via Amy’s Healthy Baking)

4. Vegan Pumpkin Pie Filling: Free from *all* top food allergens — including gluten, dairy, eggs, wheat, corn and soy — this vegan pumpkin pie filling is sure to please everyone at the feast. Serve it in a pastry shell of your choice or crust-free in festive ramekins and it’s equally delicious. (via Flo & Grace)

5. Paleo Pumpkin Pie: This pie filling is so creamy, smooth and velvety, each spoonful will light up every taste bud in your mouth. The almond-flour crust is rich with nuts and raisins, providing a perfect crumbly base. (via The Healthy Foodie)

6. Paleo Pumpkin Pie: Here’s a pie that all ancestral eaters can swoon over! If all veggies tasted this good, we wouldn’t even need sugar-filled desserts. (via Tessa the Domestic Diva)

7. Organic Pumpkin Pie: This pie features fluffy coconut filling in an almond-butter crust and tastes like little clouds of heaven. While Paleo peeps will dig its pure maple goodness, GAPS eaters can substitute honey for the sweetener and it will be perfectly compliant. (via Deliciously Organic)

8. No Bake Pumpkin Pie: This pie has a crust made of dates and nuts that requires absolutely zero oven time — and that’s a real plus in a crowded kitchen on Thanksgiving Day. The satiny filling is sweetened naturally with a super-ripe banana, but no one will be able to tell the difference. (via The Organic Dietitian)

9. Gluten-Free, Vegan, and Paleo Carob Pumpkin Tart Recipe: This one’s for all the AIP peeps in the house! Auto-immune challenges can be so tough during the holidays.

12. Gluten-Free Crustless Pumpkin Pie Cupcakes: If you’ve yet to master the art of GF crust, this one’s for you! They’re easy to make, require no special equipment and can be made a day in advance, which is always a lifesaver at holiday time. (via Meaningful Eats)

13. Mini Vegan Pumpkin Pies: This recipe breaks the coconut-oil crust barrier, producing the flakiest, most perfect little rustic pie shells. Make these for Thanksgiving. Make ’em for fall parties. Make ’em for no reason at all, except that pumpkin pie is your fave. (via Minimalist Baker)

14. Egg-Free Mini Pumpkin Pies: So, gluten-free crust AND egg-free custard? Is there some kind of sorcery going on here? This recipe is sooooo magically delicious, you’ve got to taste it to believe it. (via Fork and Beans)
