Pumpkin Pie Breakfast Bowl

[Serves 2]

 

INGREDIENTS PUMPKIN PIE BOWL FILLER 

 

1/2 cup cashews

3/4 cup of organic canned pumpkin puree (6oz.)

1 tbsp. coconut oil

1/4 cup filtered water

1/4 tsp. sea salt (Celtic Grey, Himalayan, or Redmond Real Salt)

1/4 tsp. star anise spice (finely diced)

1/4 tsp. cinnamon

1 large pitted date (or 2 small dates)

1/2 tsp. vanilla (I prefer 1 drop Medicine Flower Vanilla)

1/2 tsp. chopped fresh ginger

 

INGREDIENTS GRANOLA CRUMBLE

 

1/2 cup raw almonds

1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes

1/2 cup pitted dates

 

For Granola Crumble: Add the granola ingredients to a food processor, and blend for 60 seconds. This becomes your granola crumble, the base of the breakfast bowl. Place in a bowl and set aside.

 

For Pumpkin Pie Filler: In a blender, combine all of the pumpkin pie filler ingredients and blend on high. If using Vitamix blender, I recommend using the stick to help blend. If using a regular blender, may have to add a little more water to allow to blend (but this is meant to be a thick mixture so only add if necessary).

 

Once blended, add pumpkin pie mixture on top of the granola (in a small bowl or mason jar), and place in refrigerator to thicken. Garnish with cinnamon or nutmeg, and some hemp seeds and crushed almond pieces.

Pumpkin Chia Pudding

[Serves 2]

 

INGREDIENTS

 

2 cups coconut water or filtered water (I prefer coconut water, it’s sweeter)

1/2 cup cashews

1/4 cup pumpkin puree (organic canned) or fresh pumpkin

2 tbsp. coconut oil

1 tbsp. unsweetened coconut flakes

1 tsp. cinnamon

1/4 tsp. nutmeg

3 medium sized dates (if large, use 2 1/2)

2 tsp. vanilla (I prefer Medicine Flower Vanilla, 15 drops)

6 tbsp. chia seeds

 

DIRECTIONS

 

Blend all ingredients EXCEPT the chia in blender until thoroughly mixed (40-60 seconds).

 

Then on lowest variable speed, add in your chia seeds, and blend on low speed for one minute to mix chia. If you don’t have a variable speed blender, mix chia with a spoon.

 

Add into an airtight container, and refrigerate for at least 5 hours before serving.

 

Garnish with cinnamon or nutmeg powder.


Raw Pumpkin Pie

[Serves 4-8]***

 

INGREDIENTS: PIE CRUST
1 cup of raw almonds
1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
1 cup of dates/Turkish apricots
1 tsp. cinnamon
INGREDIENTS: PIE FILLING
1 cup pecans (ideally soaked overnight)
1 1/4 cup of organic pumpkin puree (12 oz.)
6 dates
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 tsp. sea salt (Celtic Grey Sea Salt, Himalayan, or Redmond Real Salt)
1 tsp. of vanilla (or 4 drops vanilla Medicine Flower Vanilla)
Optional: 1 tsp. of gluten-free Tamari For
Pumpkin Pie Crust:
Blend pie crust ingredients in a food processor until you can see the oils coming out of the mixture and it is sticking together (food process for over a minute or so). Then place mixture in a 9” tart mold or pie pan, and mold against the sides first, then floor of the mold so that it REALLY sticks.

For the Pie Filling:
In a blender, blend the ingredients. Then add mixture to fill in the pie crust. Sprinkle cinnamon on top, and place in refrigerator to cool and mold.

Optional: You can use 12 oz. of real pumpkin if you choose (that’s what I did, but puree is MUCH easier and faster).
