This gluten-free plum pie has been through a long process from the first idea until it arrived to the blog. Delicious, beautiful and easy to prepare too. I was running a survey some time ago about what kind of recipes you want. I know it might sound crazy to make a desserts from beans but many of you answered that you would like to try it!
So, in the meantime, as I love challenging myself always more and more, I have been working on this pie in the last month. Testing, tasting (haha this is the most funny part), testing and tasting again. I think I tested this recipe 5 or 6 times. But as a result, I have created a recipe, that is vegan, gluten-free , sugar-free – it’s only naturally sweetened and made with white beans. It’s nutrient and healthier.
This pie is perfect for autumn. I love baking with plums, they are so delicious, fresh or baked. The crust here is so soft yet crunchy and it perfectly matches with soft cream and plums. This pie is gluten-free, diary-free and the pie crust is also vegan.
Diary-free vanilla cream
Vanilla pudding cream is very simple to make. All you need is a soy milk (i like using soy, as it’s more dense than rice milk for example, and as a result, the consistency will be more creamy. But, If you do not follow any diary-free diet, it’s fine to make it with a full fat milk. In this case, you just follow the same recipe as written below.
This pudding cream is completely home-made, using very simple ingredients. You can also prepare it for a breakfast or snack with some fruit. If you love puddings, you have to try this recipe.
This pie crust is vegan, sugar free and diary-free. There is no butter. You might be surprised, but I prepare it with white beans, cooked without any salt. I rinse them very well under the running water and let them dry in a sieve. There shouldn’t be any left water when preparing the batter. Then, just place them in a food processor, together with dry dates and oil, and blend until completely smooth. Place the bean butter into a bowl, add buckwheat flour and cornstarch, some spoons of milk and incorporate all ingredients together by spoon of hand, until you create a dough.
Beans from a can?
I have tried to use also beans from a can and it works well, but pay attention to the salt. Usually beans in a can are quite salty and the cake would not be the same. But you can use also red beans, instead of white ones. Red beans in a can are already sweetened, so this will work well too.
This Gluten-free Plum Pie is:
- Made with beans and buckwheat flour
- Simple & delicious
- Nutrient & Healthy
- Satisfying and beaufitul for any occasion

Anyway, If you are not sure about baking with beans (I highly recommend to try it once), you can check the recipe Autumn apple cake with walnuts. This is made with chickpea and buckwheat flour, and grated apples just makes it so moist and delicious. And here, you find more recipes with chickpea flour. Or see all my recipes here.
