No Sugar, No Fat, No Cholesterol Pumpkin Pie

"Usual, not-healthy pumpkin pie recipes call for 3/4 cup sugar, 2 –3 eggs (yolks!), and 1 12-oz can of innocent-sounding evaporated milk. Yikes. One 12-oz can of fat free evaporated milk has 45 g carbs, which quickly break down to 12 tsp sugar (that's a candy bar). Then there’s the lardy, sugary, floury pie crust. This healthy, high protein recipe serves 8 at 112 calories per serving, including the no sugar Healthy crust. (Make the crust first.)"

directions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Combine the first four ingredients in a small bowl.
  • Stir pumpkin into skillet & heat slowly.
  • Add the egg whites and cheese, stirring until cheese starts to melt. (If the eggs start to cook, remove from heat for a bit.).
  • Mix in the Splenda and spice.
  • Mix egg replacer well with the water, add.
  • Stir whole mixture, pour into crust.
  • Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes.
  • Reduce temperature to 350, bake 15-20 more minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  • The cheese is what “binds.” Blended with the egg whites, the two substitute beautifully for the not-healthy evaporated milk. (Fat free, nice, but as much sugar as a candy bar.) And you needn’t bake at such high temps for so long, because you’re not waiting for sugar to melt, egg yolks to cook – and you’ve already heated your ingredients.

    I made this for myself and was pleasantly surprised at how sweet and delicious it was! I don't have access to fat-free cheese in New Zealand, but substituted the lowest fat I could find. Thanks for sharing! I've bookmarked all your recipes.
