Pie crust:

  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 2 tablespoons ghee
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 egg

Apple Butter Pumpkin Filling

  • 1 cup apple butter make sure it’s thick and not runny
  • 1 cup fresh or canned pumpkin
  • 1 cup coconut milk full fat
  • 2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 teaspoon arrowroot powder
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup adjust to taste
  • 3 eggs whisked
  • Optional Garnish: coconut whipped cream made with the fat of top of 1 can of coconut milk - see directions below



  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Combine all ingredients and form into a ball.
  • Place dough on 9-inch pie or tart pan - this will take several minutes to form.
  • Poke dough with fork before putting in oven
  • Bake at 350 for 5 minutes (you'll bake this longer once you add the filling).


  • Combine the apple butter, pumpkin, spices and coconut milk. Taste and then adjust amount of sweetener (if needed).
  • Whisk arrowroot in a teeny tiny bit of cold water (~1-2 tsp) to remove clumps then add it to the mixture along with the eggs. Stir well.

Assemble and Bake:

  • Pour the filling into the pie crust.
  • Bake at 350 for 50-60 minutes or until the middle of the pie is mostly set. Do the knife or toothpick test - the toothpick should be mostly clean.
  • Cool the pie to room temp and let it set in the fridge for a couple hours before slicing and serving.

Coconut Cream Garnish:

  • Place can of coconut cream in fridge for several hours or overnight.
  • Open can and take off the thick coconut cream on the top.
  • Put cream in a bowl, add sweetener and beat the cream until it forms peaks (I used my Kitchenaid but you can use a hand mixer).


  • Make sure your apple butter is thick. If it’s too too watery or runny then your pie may not set properly.
  • Also, if you use maple syrup as a sweetener (I do because I love maple and apples), just be sure not to over-do it. Maple syrup has a thinner consistency than honey or coconut sugar.
