Recipe Procedure


  1. Heat oven to 350F degrees and prepare a 9 inch pie plate or springform pan with oil or cooking spray.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs and sugar, then drizzle the coconut oil over. Blend mixture thoroughly then drizzle with the nut milk. Should form a crumbly dough.
  3. Pour the crumbs into the pie plate or springform pan and press crumbs into the bottom and up the sides. Bake 8-10 minutes until firm and set aside to cool.


  1. To make the topping combine the sugar, salt, and butter until crumbly, then fold in the chopped nuts and set aside.
  2. To make the filling, drain the cashews and blend with the tofu, banana, maple syrup, sugars, coconut oil, cornstarch, lemon juice & zest, vanilla extract and sea salt.
  3. Blend until nice and smooth, then add pumpkin purée cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg and blend some more until smooth. Pour into the crust.
  4. Bake 50 minutes to 1 hour, removing halfway through to add the topping. When done the top will be lightly puffed and the edges golden. Cool on a cooling rack and move to fridge for at least 3 hours or, even better, overnight.
