Anzac Day Pumpkin Pie

Today marks the day where we commemorate the soldiers who lost their lives during the war. Traditionally, cookies made up of desiccated coconuts and rolled oats were baked for the soldiers because of its high nutritional value and long shelf life. I decided to add a twist to this wonderful recipe and make a butter-free version of it. Plus, pumpkin was on sale at Coles this week so why not make a pumpkin pie with an Anzac cookie base for this day of remembrance!
