Pumpkin Pie in a Mug

Maple syrup, pumpkin spice and everything nice all cozied up in a mug and ready for you to nibble or scarf.  Two minutes to mix + 1 minute to cook = 3 minutes to fall-flavored pie bliss.

Pumpkin Mug Pie

It doesn’t need to be Halloween or Turkey Day for you to enjoy this delicious and convenient little dessert.  Treat yo’self, hun. We all deserve to dip a spoon into a delicately spiced, warm mug of pie filling every once in a while.  The great thing is that there’s no firing up the oven, or rolling out dough, or worrying if the custard will set.  No fuss.  No waiting.  Just like a mug cake…mix, microwave and devour, my dear.

Egg-free, gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free and refined sugar-free, this little treat for one is a much better choice than your typical traditional Thanksgiving bakery goodie.  Anthony’s Tigernut Flour (my favorite tigernut flour…it’s so fluffy!) delicately thickens the pumpkin puree into a luscious, thick but light “pie filling.”

One of my favorite little kitchen time-saver tricks is using pre-made spice blends, like the Pumpkin Pie Spice from Primal Palate.  You can get it seasonally along with their Apple Pie Spice and Gingerbread Spice in their Sweet Pack.  I highly recommend them if you do well with seed-based and fruit-based spices.  (They do have a savory AIP-compliant spice pack as well, check it out here!)  For an AIP-friendly mug pie, be sure to use cinnamon, ginger, clove and mace instead of pumpkin spice blends, as they  will usually contain nutmeg which is not elimination phase compliant.

I plan on serving a few of these this Thanksgiving to my family in lieu of a large complicated pie; they are that good!  This goes deliciously with some coconut whipped cream on top and finished with extra sprinkle of pumpkin spice on top for good measure.
