This year is just flying by and many people get worried around the holidays.
Worried that they’re going to put on that extra holiday weight.
Well with this recipe you can eat a slice of pumpkin pie everyday and be just fine!
This recipe has me super excited to share with you for the fact I’ve been trying to perfect it, the perfect low calorie crust that tastes good and you know what… I finally figured it out for you 🙂
Macros Per Slice:
Right at 150 calories
Yes!!! Pie Everyday!
Ingredients for Pie Crust:
- 25g Vanilla Whey Protein (Truetein)
- 50g Coconut Flour
- 1 Egg
- 2 Egg Whites or (70g)
- 1/3 Cup (33g) Keebler Graham Crumbles or 2 Graham Crackers Crushed
- 100ml Unsweetened Almond Milk
- ¼ cup Zero Cal Sweetener
Ingredients for Pie Filling:
– 1 Can (425g) Pumpkin Puree
– 2 Scoops (70g) Vanilla Protein Powder
– 1 (5.3oz) Greek Yogurt Single Serving
– 2 Eggs
– ½ Cup Zero Cal Sweetener
– 3g Pumpkin Pie Spice
– 2g Cinnamon
– 1g Nutmeg
1.) Pre-Heat oven to 350 degrees
2.) Begin by adding all the crust ingredients into a large bowl
3.) Mix until you have thick dough-like consistency
4.) Spray Pie Mold with some cooking spray then pour dough into and form to mold with hands
5.) If you want to be fancy, Pinch top with fingers to create fancy crust look
6.) Bake in the oven for 20-Minutes at 350 degrees until it begins to turn slightly golden along the top edges
7.) Next, mix all pie ingredients into a bowl
8.) Once crust is done, pour pie filling into crust and bake for another 45 minutes at 350 degrees
9.) When done, take out of the oven and allow to cool for around 30 minutes. Its best to let it chill in the fridge as well (the pieces will cut and come out much nicer)
10.) Cut into 8 pieces and ENJOY!!!!
Bonus Step, but so worth it add a Little Fat Free Whip Cream and sprinkle a little pumpkin spice for that special Little Touch and Enjoy!!!
