Healthy oil crust:
3/4 cup white flour
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
2 tablespoons ground flax seed, optional
2 tablespoons wheat germ, optional

1/3 cup oil
2-4 tablespoons nondairy milk (I use soymilk) Pumpkin filling:
1 teaspoon lemon juice

1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup oil
1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin puree
3/4 cup beet sugar
1 3/4 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon molasses
1/4 teaspoon salt

What you do: 

1. For crust, mix together white flour, whole wheat flour, flax seed, wheat germ, and salt. Mix in oil until completely blended. Add nondairy mik until mixture holds together; add up to another 2 tablespoons milk.

Thanks for the recipe, tried it for thanksgiving, and everyone LOVED it.

I used a store-bought crust.  It seemed like the pie was not firm enough, but the next day it was just perfect, so make it a day or two in advance.


Great Pie! I loved it.

The crust is a little hard to roll...I ended up sort of "smashing" it into the pie plate. But, that worked great.
