Crustless Pumpkin Pie ~ Adapted Recipe


Making healthier ingredient swaps doesn't have to be hard or time consuming, it just takes a little experimentation.


Jessica W. of Chandler, Arizona emailed us about her first experience with Dr. John's birch xylitol.  "I had a great time experimenting with Xylitol and found it to be a very helpful substitute for sugar. The first recipe I used xylitol in was a Gluten-Free Cornbread using Pamela's Gluten-Free Corn Bread and Muffin Mix.  I then used the the cornbread to make cornbread dressing for Thanksgiving.  It was delicious and I was so glad to be able to offer something to my family that would easier on their digestive tracts and not raise their blood sugar too much.  The second recipe I used the Xylitol in was a Crustless Pumpkin Pie adapted from http://www.healthfulpursuit.com/2013/11/high-protein-crustless-paleo-pumpkin-pie-gluten-free/."

Here's the adapted recipe Jessica shared with us.
