GBT - Thanksgiving Recipe Swap

This week on Group Blogging Thursday, Stephanie is doing a recipe swap!! I found this recipe for Pumpkin Pie on the Hungry Girl website, and it is SO freaking yummy!! [and less then 1/2 the calories!]

I hope everyone tries it out this year!!


For Crust

2 cups Fiber One bran cereal (original)

1/4 cup light whipped butter or light buttery spread (like Brummel & Brown)

3 tbsp. Splenda No Calorie Sweetener (granulated)

1 tsp. cinnamon

For Filling

One 15-oz. can pure pumpkin (NOT pumpkin pie filling!)

One 12-oz. can evaporated fat-free milk

1/2 cup fat-free liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters Original)

3/4 cup Splenda No Calorie Sweetener (granulated)

1/4 cup sugar-free pancake syrup

1 tbsp. pumpkin pie spice

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

1/8 tsp. salt

Optional Topping: Fat Free Reddi-wip or Cool Whip Free


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a small microwave-safe bowl, combine butter with 2 tbsp. water. Microwave until just melted, and set aside. In a blender or food processor, grind Fiber One to a breadcrumb-like consistency.

In a medium mixing bowl, combine butter mixture and crumbs with remaining ingredients for crust. Stir until mixed well.

Spray an oven-safe 9-inch pie dish lightly with nonstick spray. Evenly distribute crust mixture, using your hands or a flat utensil to firmly press and form the crust. Press it into the edges and up along the sides of the dish. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients for the filling. Mix well. Pour mixture into pie crust. The filling may be taller than the crust -- trust us, this is okay!

Bake pie in the oven for 45 minutes. Allow pie to cool slightly. Refrigerate for several hours (overnight is best). Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.

Cut into 8 slices and, if you like, top with Reddi-wip or Cool Whip before serving!

Sounds yummy!

I can't have pumpkin pie without the cool whip, though. I guess that defeats the purpose of the low calories--unless I get the Light Cool whip.

Yum! I'll be trying this!

I think that's the cookbook I added to my Amazon wish list. I take it the recipes are good?

My grandmother who is always concerned with calories would definitely not be happy with a low calorie pumpkin pie. She likes her indulgences to be decadent and her pumpkin pie slices to be extra large!
