I’ve been gluten free ever since I got a Pinterest account. I remember at first I would be so bummed to see all the recipes I could not longer have! Once I decided I just needed to modify them, I’ve been Pinning recipes to try ever since.

This is one I found a while ago and comes from Sally’s Baking Addiction. Ummm… hello pumpkin and Nutella!!  I really don’t think it needs much of an introduction other than this will be a game changer this Thanksgiving!

Recipe modified from: Sally’s Baking Addiction


  • *1 pre-made gluten free crust (I used Mi-Del’s Graham Style pie crust)
  • 3 eggs
  • 15 ounce can pure pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup Nutella, warmed (microwave for about 30 seconds)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place pie crust on baking sheet or pie dish and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs. Add the remaining ingredients (except for the Nutella) and stir to combine until evenly mixed.
  3. Pour the mixture into pie crust.
  4. Drop spoonfuls of warmed Nutella onto pie, swirling carefully with the back of a knife.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes or until the filling is set.
  6. Allow to cool completely and serve at room temperature.

*In the original recipe, she made her own crust out of gingersnap cookies. I will probably try this next time. But the pre-made crust was easy to use and still tasted delicious!

Because the Mi-Del’s crust is a little smaller than your typically pie dish, I had about 3/4 cup leftover of the pie filling. Since I don’t like to waste, I added:

1/2 cup gluten free flour (Cup4Cup)
1/2 tsp baking powder

Mixed everything until evenly combined, poured batter into muffin tins, baked them at 350 degrees (same time as I baked the pie) for 20-25 minutes. I got 4 muffins from this!
