Paleo Pumpkin Pie from my friend, Maren. YUM

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. For the crust, mix in 1/2 cup of almonds and 1 cup of pecans in food processor to chop finely. Add 4 tablespoons of melted butter or coconut oil, 1/4 teaspoon of salt, and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon. Mix together and press firmly against the bottom of a pie pan carefully pressing against the edges to make a pie shell. Bake for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, mix together:

1 can pumpkin puree (15 oz)

2 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp vanilla

1/4 tsp ground cloves (don’t fret if you are missing one or two of the spices)

1/4 tsp nutmeg

1/4 tsp grated ginger

2 eggs

1/2 cup honey

1/2 cup coconut milk

Pour into pre-baked nutty pie shell. Bake for 45 minutes longer.
