1/4 tsp Ground Cloves

1/4 tsp Ginger

1/4 tsp Nutmeg

Pinch of Salt US Customary – Metric Instructions Preheat oven to 325F. Grease a 9-inch pie pan.

In a large bowl, mix together the oat fiber and eggs. Add the coconut cream, pumpkin puree, vanilla extract, erythritol (or other sweetener), cinnamon, ground cloves, ground ginger, nutmeg and salt. Stir until smooth. Transfer into prepared pie pan. Place pie pan onto a baking tray and transfer to the oven. Bake for 45 minutes, or until the center is just set. Let cool before slicing and serving. Recipe Notes Oat Fiber: If you have a strong blender such as a Vita-Mix or high-speed blender such as a Blendtec, you can simply blend up oats until they become a fine powder. This will give your pie a more “oatmeal” flavor, which works well in cooking. If you don’t have a high-power blender, you can use rolled oats (not instant or quick cooking). Just pulsing them a few time in a food processor should do the trick.

Coconut Cream: You can find coconut cream in the Asian section of your local grocery store. You can use the cream that floats to the top of a can of coconut milk.

If you’re in Australia, you can use this product. You won’t need the whole can, so spoon out just the cream from one of the cans.

Vanilla Extract: I use this brand of vanilla extract.

Erythritol: Erythritol is a sugar alcohol and can cause gastrointestinal distress in some people when eaten in large amounts. Start with 2 tbsp and see how your body reacts before adding more.
