    Thanks so much for this! I absolutely love pumpkin pie, but never make it because my husband and son have egg allergies. Woohoo, now I have one that the whole family can enjoy. I will be making this in a couple of weeks :).

      Oh, I am so happy you like my recipe. Did you know you can make many dishes without eggs! Egg is just a binder. Most baked items you can substitute egg with applesauce. As for the pumpkin pie the substitute was the corn starch. Happy baking!

        Yes, I do use applesauce in muffins, breads, etc. I just never ventured over the realm of pie. Didn’t know corn starch could be used as a substitute.

      People will never know the dairy and eggs are missing! My mom use to make pumpkin pie with coconut flakes!
