Low Sugar Pumpkin Pie - For those who don't tolerate a lot of sugar, this delicious pie is a great holiday alternative!
I hope everyone had a good Halloween!
In light of the no trick-or-treating rule this year, we opted to dress up at home and have our own little celebration.
My husband bought some lights and various props, and we threw together a little haunted house of sorts where the kids had to search for their treat bags.
We then vegged out while the kids ate candy and watched a sensibly gory flick.
Lower sugar pie why?
Suddenly, it's November and Thanksgiving is staring me in the face!
I am NOT complaining, as Thanksgiving truly is my favorite holiday. Food, food, and more food!
While the holidays are a time of indulgence, I figure there might be someone similar to me that is looking to be healthy year-round!
I still love my Honey Pumpkin Pie, but in more recent years, I've been making today's lower sugar version. I'm finding more and more that I just can't tolerate as much sweet as I used to, so I've been recreating many of my old favorites!
I've used eggs in this recipe in lieu of the egg-free version linked above. I find adding protein to any type of treat helps balance out my blood sugar much better.
This entire pie sweetened with a combination of about three tablespoons of sweetener and a little stevia.
I use my favorite gluten-free pie crust as the base, and we top it with some freshly whipped cream!

I like to use coconut milk in this recipe, specifically, my Homemade Coconut Milk. It lends a lovely coconut flavor and richness.
Add in the stevia to your taste. I usually use a few dashes.
