Pumpkin Pie Pudding Cups

October 13, 2013 § Leave a comment


Due to the success of my Instant Pumpkin Cookie, I wanted to see what else I could make in the microwave. Pumpkin Pie came to mind, but unfortunately, you can’t make pumpkin pie in the microwave. I tried. The filling just spread out and got weird.


But then I thought, why do you need to cook pumpkin pie anyway? So I created a no-bake pumpkin pie filling.

Though because I did not want to add starches or gelatin substitutes the filling is more like pudding. Delicious pumpkin-y pudding, but still pudding. So pudding cups instead of pumpkin pie.


They’re also really easy to make, especially when compared to actual pumpkin pie, which would make Thanksgiving preparations so much easier. Plus, everyone would get their own little pie! What’s not to love?


Pumpkin Pie Pudding Cups

adapted from this recipe

makes about five cups



1/2 cup pitted dates

1/2 cup pecans

1 tsp cinnamon

2 tsp maple syrup

4 Tbs gluten-free rolled oats


6 Tbs pumpkin puree

3 Tbs coconut cream

3/4 tsp cinnamon

1/4 + 1/8 tsp ginger

1/8 tsp nutmeg

1/8 tsp ground cloves

pinch sea salt

1/2 tsp vanilla

2 tsp maple syrup


1. Blend all the crust ingredients until sticky.

2. Line the cups of a standard muffin tin with two paper liners, for sturdiness. Pack the crust mixture into the bottom and up the sides of the liners.

3. Remove the mini pie crusts from the tin and microwave in a microwave-safe container for 30 seconds. Replace into the muffin tin, repacking into the correct shape as needed, to cool. The crusts will harden as they cool.

4. Whisk all the filling ingredients together.

5. Once the crusts are cool enough to hold their shape, remove from the muffin tin and fill with the filling. Place in the fridge for the filling to firm up.

6. Enjoy!
