Chocolate Pumpkin Cake Pie

Here's a sweet and spicy edition to my healthiest Vegan, Gluten-Free Chocolate Cake Pie inspired by the season. Made with beans, pumpkin, maple syrup and no flour or processed ingredients. You can enjoy by the slice for breakfast, brunch or dessert as a protein rich superfood that's almost too good to be true. Try topping with home whipped coconut cream for extra goodness. You can also poor batter into cupcake tins for single sized to-go versions that are wonderful to pack as travel snacks.
