Vegan Pie Recipes
Vegan Sweet Potato Pie
Via The Witchy Kitchen
In my family, there are two schools of Thanksgiving pie-eaters: pumpkin pie lovers and die-hard sweet potato devotees. While I’ve always been a pumpkin pie fanatic, this sweet potato pie, served in a pecan and oat crust, could be a gamechanger.

Vegan Caramel Apple Pie

I hate apple pie. And so did the woman who made this apple pie. But then she tasted this apple pie, and now she LOVES apple pie! That’s how good this recipe is. We’re nearing the end of apple season, so go grab some Galas (or go pick your own) and get to cooking!
Vegan Pumpkin Pie Squares

This recipe uses almond milk instead of heavy cream and raw honey instead of sugar, making it a (somewhat) healthy holiday treat. So go ahead—cut yourself a giant slice.
Paleo “Peanut Butter” Pie
If you are a Paleo-diet devotee, you’ve probably been dreaming about peanut butter for a while now. This pie doesn’t actually contain any peanut butter (because, duh, that’s against the rules), but the combo of tahini, coconut oil and raw honey produces a flavor that’s preeeeetty close to the real deal.

Raw Pumpkin Pie

This raw pumpkin pie, made with a mixed-nut crust, is basically a traditional pumpkin pie served frozen rather than baked. Interesting, huh?
