Pumpkin Pie (Vegan/Gluten Free/Grain Free/Sugar Free/Low Carb/Low Calorie)

Posted Nov 11 2012 12:49pm

Guess what? Nope .You can’t guess. Can you? I don’t think you can! But maybe you can. I don’t know. Just guess!

Okay, I’m going to tell you, but you have to listen very carefully. THIS IS THE GREATEST PIE IN THE ENTIRE WORLD. Why, you may ask? Simple.

Well first off, it tastes pretty darn spectacular.Second off…drumroll please… THERE ARE ONLY 250 CALORIE IN THE ENRITE PIE. All 8 inches of pumpkin-y goodness can be yours for only 250 calories, crust, filling, and all. You see, this is important enough for large font, no? Never too much large font in case of pie.

Pie is quite possibly the greatest expression of love human being can give one another. See? That’s how much I love you. I made you pie.

I mean, after the amazing and beyond comments on my last post , I had to try to live up to your amazingness. I mean, you’re so great that I had to make up a word just to begin to describe you accurately!

In all seriousness, I want to thank you so very very much again. Your wonderful comments and emails continually make me day. Know that every time you leave a comment, or just say hello somehow, you are making a fourteen year old girl smile. Thank you. Thank you so very much.

And I meant what I said! Schoolwork is demanding, but I will kick this plateau and make some improvements. I’ll keep posting every three days, I’ll try to respond to everything (yes, everything), and I’ll be posting super-duper scrumptious recipes, especially your ideas!

Speaking of which…

Pumpkin Pie (Vegan/Gluten Free/Grain Free/Sugar Free/Low Carb/Low Calorie)

This pie is only 250 calories for the entire thing! So you know what that means? The slices are only 30 calories each. I know. Insanity. Just know that you do need plan a bit ahead because the pie needs to chill for two hours after baking.

Pumpkin Pie (Vegan/Gluten Free/Grain Free/Sugar Free/Low Carb/Low Calorie)

Serving size: 1 slice

Calories: ~30

Fat: <o.5 grams

Ingredients

For crust:

1/4 cup chickpea flour

1 Tablespoon applesauce

1/16 teaspoon salt

1 packet stevia

1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

3 Tablespoons almond milk

For filling:

1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin puree

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon ginger

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

1 Tablespoon egg replacer + 2 Tablespoon water

1/2 cup almond milk

1/4 teaspoon + 10 drops liquid stevia, or to taste

Directions

Preheat oven to 350F. Grease an 8-inch pie pan and set aside. I use a springform pan because it makes the pie much easier to slice cleanly, but you can use a regular pie pan if that’s all you have.

Combine all ingredients for crust and spread evenly over the bottom of the greased pie pan. Bake in the oven for 15-18 minutes, or until golden and firm.

Meanwhile, whisk together all the ingredients for the filling until very thoroughly combined. Pour over the baked crust and bake in the oven for 35 more minutes. Chill the pie for at least two hours before serving. It may seem a but liquid-y right after you take it out of the oven, but fear not! It will firm up.

 

Holiday dinner? No problem! You’ve got this pie in tow. Bring it on.

Enjoy!
