    What is a Pumpkin Crumble?

    Pumpkin Crumble is a crustless pumpkin pie. Keep the smooth pumpkin filling, top it with sweet, softened butter, and you’ve got Pumpkin Crumble. 

    Pumpkin Crumble is easier to bake than pumpkin pie. Combine the ingredients in a mixing bowl, pour them into a glass baking dish, and you’re done. Set aside 25 minutes to put the recipe together, and another 30 minutes to bake.  

    And since there is no crust to mute the flavor, we dare say it’s tastier than pumpkin pie.

    Is Pumpkin Crumble Healthy?

    Let’s look at the main ingredients:

    Pumpkin Base

    • Pumpkin puree
    • Eggs
    • Heavy cream
    • Sweetener

    Crumble Topping

    • Almond Flour
    • Butter
    • Sweetener

    Pumpkin puree, eggs and almond flour are natural ingredients, each having their own list of health benefits.  

    But what about the heavy cream?  What about the butter? Is dairy healthy? 

    Here’s what we know. Dairy is full of vitamins, minerals, protein, and natural fat energy. But if everyone consumed dairy all of the time, dairy farming would become abusive and unsustainable…

    Let’s be mindful of our dairy intake. Buy milk from pasture raised cows and limit consumption.

    Sugar is what makes food unhealthy. Add 165g of sugar (20g/serving) to this Pumpkin Crumble and you’re looking at heartburn with an energy crash. (And you’ll be scouring the pantry for your next sugar snack within the hour.) 

    Substitute the sugar for a quality sugar alcohol, and this cake becomes nourishment. The ingredients provide vitamins, minerals, protein and long-lasting energy. When you cut the sugar, you’ll notice that it feels good to feel full. Enjoy this Pumpkin Crumble knowing it supports your well being. Learn more about eating less sugar here.

      Pumpkin Crumble Tips

      1. 8×8 glass baking dish

      The 8×8 dish delivers a thick pumpkin base as well as a generous layer of sweet butter topping. Our pyrex baking dish comes with a lid for easy, eco-friendly storage. No saran wrap necessary. Check out our favorite sustaInable kitchen products here.

      2. Got pumpkin pie spice?

      Substitute ½ tsp pumpkin pie spice for ¼ tsp cinnamon, ⅛ tsp ginger and ⅛ tsp nut meg.

      3. Use Cool Butter

      When preparing the sweet butter topping, you want the butter to be cool. By that we mean not room temperature, and not fridge temperature either. A cool temperature makes it easy to spread your topping over the pumpkin base. 

      4. Serve warm or cool

      Serve the Pumpkin Crumble at room temperature to capture that classic pumpkin pie texture. Or if you like your pumpkin base more gooey, warm it up in the microwave for about 30 seconds for a warm, cozy dessert. 

      5. Top with whipped cream

      Whipped cream is heavy cream whipped with a mixer. There is no sugar. (Big brands add sugar, but not much.) Neutral Eating supports dairy in moderation. 

      6. Top with Vanilla Ice Cream

      We like our Pumpkin Crumble warm when served with ice cream. The hot and cold contrast makes for an enjoyable dessert experience. (P.S. Most grocery stores carry sugar-free ice cream. Check out our favorite ice cream brands here.
