Pumpkin Pie Without Sugar

There is definitely a need to reduce sugar intake because the average American eats 150 pounds of it a year. But it’s often hard to find a good recipe to take the place of a traditional or family favorite. This pumpkin pie is made gluten free, without dairy, nuts, eggs, oil and refined sugar. And it tastes great!

I hope this helps those who are sensitive to the traditional ingredients and you find this a tasty alternative that everyone will enjoy!
