I could NOT WAIT to share this low-FODMAP Thanksgiving recipe!!

My low-FODMAP Skillet Pumpkin Pie Crumble-Crisp recipe will change your life.

I am totally serious.  We are talking about a recipe so easy, you can do it all by hand, in under an hour.

Low-FODMAP Pumpkin Pie Crumble-Crisp tastes just like a pumpkin pie, but without the fussing and rolling of a pie crust.

Instead, you have a delicious crumbly-crispy topping…who doesn’t love that?!  Gorgeous and rustic looking in a cast-iron skillet.

You may never make traditional pumpkin pie again… (but if you do, try my Perfect low-FODMAP Pumpkin Pie recipe)

Serve my low-FODMAP Pumpkin Pie Crumble-Crisp with low-FODMAP Vanilla Bean Coconut Whipped Cream, low-FODMAP Cinnamon Spiced French Vanilla Ice Cream, or regular whipped cream and lactose-free ice cream.  HEAVEN.

the low-fodmap IBS solution

Although this recipe has not been tested, a single serving should be low-FODMAP based on the ingredients (using available FODMAP data at time of posting)

Serves: 10-12

Prep time: 15 minutes

Bake time: 40 minutes

Total time: 55 minutes

Equipment: 10 -11 inch cast iron skillet or pie dish

Bake: 375F


For Low-FODMAP Pumpkin Base:

  • Cooking spray or shortening for greasing
  • 3 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 (15-oz.) can pumpkin purée or pure pumpkin (these are the same thing, do not buy pumpkin pie filling)
    • 1/3 cup (2.6 ounces) is one low-FODMAP serving
  • 2/3 cup heavy whipping cream
    • 1/4 cup of heavy cream is one low-FODMAP serving due to naturally low lactose levels (this equates to 1/2 cup of the whipped form)
    • I did not attempt this with canned coconut cream, for a dairy-free option, however let me know if you do! You may need to extend the bake time for this ingredient as it does not set as quickly without the milk proteins
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Garnish: additional whipped cream or low-FODMAP vanilla ice cream
  • Vegetable shortening, or baking spray for greasing

For Low-FODMAP Crumble-Crisp Topping:

  • 1 & 3/4 cups all-purpose, low-FODMAP gluten-free flour
  • 3/4 cup almond meal
    • 1/4 cup is one low-FODMAP serving
    • If you wish to avoid nuts, then feel free to substitute the same amount of low-FODMAP, GF flour or use old fashioned rolled oats (not ‘quick’ oats) for a traditional ‘crisp’ topping
  • 1 & 1/2 cups dark brown sugar, lightly packed (adjust to your taste if you prefer less sweet)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3/4 cup (12 tablespoons) unsalted butter, chilled and chopped (can also use coconut oil)
  • Optional: 1/2 cup of pecans or walnuts, chopped


  • In a medium bowl, prepare the low-FODMAP crumble-crisp topping
    • Place the low-FODMAP flour, almond meal, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt in your bowl and stir to combine
    • Cut in the butter, using your hands to work it together until it is clumpy. Place this in the fridge briefly for later
  • Preheat oven to 375° F, and grease your skillet with baking spray or shortening
  • In a large bowl, whisk together eggs and sugar by hand (you can use an electric mixer if you prefer)
  • When smooth and fully combined, add pumpkin, cream, vanilla, pumpkin pie spice, and 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Whisk until smooth, then pour/spread this into your prepared pan
  • Take the crumble-crisp topping from your fridge, and using your hands, press chunks of this into teaspoon sized balls
  • Lay the crumble-crisp topping over the pumpkin base
  • Bake until the filling is set and the top is golden brown, about 35 to 45 minutes. As ovens vary, your oven may need more/less time
    • There should be no jiggle to the pie when you lightly shake it
  • Allow to cool slightly, then serve warm, or at room temperature with low-FODMAP whipped cream or ice cream!
