HEALTHIER PUMPKIN PIE (the recipe you’ve all been asking me for)
SAVE THIS POST FOR THANKSGIVING OR GET A PRACTICE ROUND IN NOW!
One 15oz. can pumpkin (not canned pumpkin pie)
3/4 cup stevia
1 capful vanilla extract
1/2tsp or Dash of salt
1.5 tsp or sprinkling of Cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice seasoning
1/2 cup coffee mate sugar free hazelnut or pumpkin pie spice creamer
2 mini serving French vanilla coffee creamer (or just 2 tblsp)
For pie crust you can do a coconut and almond flour one from Pinterest / google or you can just buy one. I used a regular one because I was making it for the fam and who doesn’t love graham cracker crust lol.
Throw it all in a bowl and whisk. Idk the proper timing or cooking science. Just do that then Pour into a pie crust and 9-inch glass or foil looking pan (sorry idk the terms)
Heat oven to 425°F.
Bake at this temp for 15 minutes.
Reduce oven temperature to 350°F; bake 40 to 50 minutes longer or until knife inserted near center comes out clean.
Cool completely, about 2 hours. I tried it warm and it’s better cold.
Store in fridge
Let me know if you try it and tag me in your pics or stories so I can virtually taste yours!
Pumpkin, apple, squash, you name it. The holidays of warm spices, sweet smells, and comfort are here. I am considering sharing some of my best healthy holiday recipes, what do you think?
This one I only just whipped up this weekend for a go and you guys asked me to share so here it is! 🙌🏻.
Chop sweet potato into fry form, broil on high until crispy. (Can spray or coat with an oil of choice if you want even more crispness or flavor).
In a small bowl combine:
-One heaping tablespoon of canned plain pumpkin
-1 Tblsp Walden farms syrup or similar (can use packets of stevia, stevia drops, honey, agave, whatev!!!)
-Coconut flour or xanthum gum to make it get more of a dippy but sticky texture
-Add in pumpkin pie spice or your fav warm spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom, etc. do this until you reach your desired taste :))
Enjoy!!! Also think this would be good as like a butter on French toast or protein pancakes 😋 Let me know if you wanna see more recipes like this 😊🥧😋 I even have a healthy holidays cookbook on my website. It’s an oldie but a goodie! Message me if you want it! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
P.S. I have only made this once. I’d plan to play around with it some more by maybe mashing in some butternut squash w the dip or adding vanilla even. I’d probably not coat the sweet potatoes with olive oil and would just broil them alone then do butter spray w a coat of cinnamon and stevia on them so it’s more sweet rather than savory 😊
Recipe, Ingredients, How To:
-1 serving egg whites (3/4 cup=4 egg whites)
-spices/flavors of choice
-I use Stevia and Cinnamon for my CHURRO ones
- I use sugar free mango sweetener for my Mango Sweet ones
-You can really use anything and do a ton of stuff with this! Just think of your favorite crunchy treat and try out those flavors!
wHY I LOVE THEM:
These yummy, healthy, crunchy treats are a must try!
NO added sugar
-1 ingredient necessary
-multiple flavor options
Keep in mind I'm on a bikini competition preparation meal plan so this is very clean, super simple, easy, and extremely healthy. This makes me not HATE egg whites, because trust me I never looked forward to my last meal with egg whites until now...
Munch on these throughout the day when you need a quick fix or have them for your last meal or take them with you to the movies and avoid the heavy, fat, sugary, salty, buttered up popcorn and candy.
Try lots of different spices and flavors and enjoy!
dip it, freeze it, spoon it, cook it, Pancake it, Waffle it, get creative or just eat it!!!
Took me about 5 min to make and then chill time, but like I said, doesn't need to be chilled, can be eaten right out of the blender if you really feel like it ;)
The mix is healthiest without toppings you see in video but if you're dying for a healthier cheat meal or a healthy treat to bring to a party add:
-white chocolate chips
-any other toppings you would like!
1 banana (frozen or not)
Milk or water
Protein scoop of choice (I used mint chocolate chip)
TASTES JUST LIKE IT. NEED THIS IN YOUR LIFE especially if you're Gavin cravings!
Also try a chocolate banana pb ice cream
1/2 cup egg whites or three full eggs
1/4 (approx 1 scoop) Unflavored whey protein powder
Optional items for crust:
Salt and Pepper
1tblsp pea protein powder
Use hand held blender or processor and blend to a batter consistency
Non-stick pan sprayed with coconut oil or non stick oil
Before adding batter, Heat pan until it is hot
Add half of the mix to the pan and spread it thin
Turn heat to medium so it cook through without burning
Flip when bottom is done
Remove crust from pan, add tomato paste (I used no salt added diced tomato w/ green chiles bc we actually didn't have plain tomatoes like I thought we did and I blended them to Make a paste)
Add cheese (I use almond cheese not actual cheese)
Add any other desired toppings. Pineapple was my whole family's favorite but we also did turkey bacon which was also yummy and of course plain cheese but the possibilities are endless
Put in oven at normal oven setting for bout 10 min or until cheese is melted!
This recipe really surprised me. I found it online but I really tweaked it to fit my plan and my likings!
Let me know what you think! ENJOY:)
