Healthy Pumpkin Pie

Pumpkin pie is one of my favorite pies for Thanksgiving!  It is delicious!

A couple of years ago we had an extended family Thanksgiving dinner.  Of course, there were lots of pies!  We didn’t want to miss out on pie so we brought our own pumpkin pie.

We cut ourselves a slice then told everyone they could try some if they would like.

Well, that pie was gone so fast!  Before any of the other pumpkins pies!  You won’t believe this pie does not contain sugar.

And the crust is whole wheat.  It is yummy!  Whole wheat is so much better for you than white flour.  And it is super easy to work with.

Being on a whole foods, no preservatives, or refined sugar diet sometimes you “miss out” on some of the food in social settings.  This year you don’t have too!
