Pumpkin Pie Bites

These mini crustless pumpkin pies are the perfect size to enjoy at any gathering. They bring people together: they're scrumptious for those who care if the food is healthy or have restrictions and for those who don't! These pie bites are made with almond flour to be gluten-free, the processed sugar is replaced with pure maple syrup, and they can easily be made dairy-free. Just use non-dairy milk and increase the cornstarch (or arrowroot) to two tablespoons or use almond evaporated milk instead of regular evaporated milk. Yes, some stores carry both types of evaporated milk. I’ve brought these mini pies to several parties with rave reviews. Plus, they're easy to make. Don’t forget to savor each mini bite!
