2 large eggs

¼ cup maple syrup – optional (a must for the sweet tooth)

  1. Crust: Process coconut, dates, oil and maple syrup until sticky. Press into pie dish or baking tray of choice.
  2. Filling: Combine first 6 ingredients in a large bowl.
  3. Pour Pie filling into crust, garnish with pepitas and cinnamon and bake in a moderate oven for 30 minutes. (180C/350F)

This Scrumptious Pumkin Pie can be served heated with natural yoghurt, cream or ice-cream or just on it’s own.

The maple syrup is very optional and I would recommend using half. I find the ¼ cup quite sweet and using none makes it almost too healthy! None tastes good just the same though. Now I’m wondering if I should be writing that… It’s a cake right? If it’s eaten as a meal than definitely skip the maple syrup. I have eaten my great grandmother’s (passed down recipe) cheese cake for breakfast which contains 10 eggs!! I still wonder about it’s cake-ness and as a-matter-of-fact the cake-ness of our Scrumptious Pumpkin Pie!
