Just in time for Thanksgiving! Pumpkin Pie seems like the perfect Thanksgiving dessert. 

It's rich, smooth, and tastes incredible on my homemade pie crust and topped with coconut whipped cream. 

I've been sneaking pictures of this pie and it's finally up! Say hello to The Best Paleo Pumpkin Pie ever. 

This no-nonsense pie recipe will be sure to win over your family. And I promise they will not be able to tell it's a healthier version.  It’s sweetened with pure maple syrup so go ahead and eat the whole pan. I don’t really recommend that, of course, but I won’t judge if you do because it’s that good.

Simple ingredients combined together to make one amazing pumpkin pie. I hope you and your family enjoy this as much as we do.
