Crock Pot Pumpkin Custard (GAPS, Paleo, Gluten Free, Grain Free)

Crock Pot Pumpkin Custard

I love pumpkin. Yes I do. I love pumpkin more than you!

And yes, I am in kindergarten.

It’s autumn (although my neck of the woods FINALLY got the memo after welcoming October with 100 degree temperatures). Autumn means wholesome, savory foods. Autumn means nutrient dense comfort foods. Autumn means pumpkins.

While everyone is busy whipping up pumpkin cookies, pumpkin pies, pumpkin muffins, and pumpkin bread, I am enjoying my super easy Crock Pot Pumpkin Custard! Oh yeah – I said Pumpkin and Custard and Crock Pot all in the same sentence. Wheee!

I originally saw this recipe over at Health, Home, and Happiness. I love Cara. I love her Grain Free Meal Plans (as well as her eBook with all the best recipes from her meals plans) and her GAPS Intro Recipe Book.

I knew this recipe was going to be a winner. And it was. Sort of.
Don’t get me wrong. This custard was delicious. Really delicious! But I felt like I could turn this into something more akin to pumpkin pie without the crust. A pumpkin-pie-filling-custard if you will. Because that was what my taste buds were set on. So I tinkered with the recipe and came up with something that I think tastes pretty darn close to pumpkin pie filling and more closely matches the consistency as well.

What I like best about this recipe is that you can fix it and forget about it while the crock pot does all the work! Seriously. This is one easy, easy recipe!

  1. I am slowly coming to the conclusion that I just HAVE to get a crockpot. Their wonders are espoused everywhere I go. This recipe sounds amazing, and knowing YOU make it, I’m pretty confident it’s good for me too 😉

  2. Really? Five hours on high? Thanks.

  3. @Ellen Yep! On high!

  4. Man, that sounds tasty! All this fall pumpkin goodness, it is like one of the last major “only in season” treats that is respected and when the time comes I want it ALL!

  5. This looks SO delicious! And I’m a sucker for anything I can do in the crock pot. This may just show up in our Thanksgiving spread this year. Thanks!
