Low Calorie Pumpkin Pie Recipe – 5 Points +

Low Calorie Pumpkin Pie

No need to skip dessert this Thanksgiving….just try this healthier, low calorie Pumpkin Pie recipe instead. By making a few small tweaks to my mom’s traditional Thanksgiving Pumpkin Pie, and switching out the high fat crust for a delicious whole wheat version, I was able to make this amazing Weight Watchers Pumpkin pie that is delicious, lovely, and just 5 Points + per serving! Other versions of light pumpkin pie recipes that I’ve seen, suggest going crustless, or, thinning out your crust as much as possible in order to lower that Points Plus value. My response to that? NO WAY!!! I loooooove pie crust. And I’m not about to sacrifice it. But I am usually pretty overwhelmed around the holidays, so I like to keep things as simple as possible. That means I buy a pre-made pie crust. No shame in my game, folks. I LOVE the Organic Whole Wheat Pie Crust from Wholly Wholesome….it tastes amazing and you’d never know it’s healthier. This is usually my go to pre-made pie crust. If you prefer to make your own pie crust from scratch, by all means, go right ahead. Just make sure to use a whole wheat pie crust recipe (there’s a ton of them that you can find through a quick Google search). So don’t pass on the pumpkin pie this year, just serve up this Low Points Pumpkin Pie Recipe, and enjoy the guilt free indulgence. Happy Thanksgiving!

Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal Recipe – 4 Points +

Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

Pumpkin Pie is such a traditional American dessert…it’s so comforting and it really connects you to such a wonderful time of the year – fall and the Thanksgiving holiday. Well, with this Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal Recipe, you can start your day with the flavor of pumpkin pie in a classic, steel cut oatmeal. This recipe was something I’d been meaning to play around with for quite a while. I simply followed the instructions on my oatmeal package, but subbed out some of the milk and water for pumpkin puree. To avoid adding sugar, I used some vanilla extract, and instead of milk, I used unsweetened vanilla Almond Breeze to add more sweetness. But if you prefer, you can absolutely use some non-fat milk instead. The texture of the oatmeal was perfect, and I topped it with a drizzle of maple syrup for added flavor. This is such a hearty and healthy breakfast recipe that is just 4 Points + per serving, and it is wonderfully gratifying and satisfying. Enjoy!
