High Protein Pumpkin Pie

I had a craving for pumpkin pie this week. Haha! Makes perfect sense since it is Easter, right?

So I took a fellow Venus Coach, Coach Roberta AKA Ro's protein custard souffle recipe and tweaked it to what I had and my craving! Everyone has been raving about these protein custards she has been making too! So I had to check them out. The nutritional stats are IMPRESSIVE :) 21g protein in 145 cals. DANNNNG.

I am thinking this will be excellent for breakfast, snack, or dessert. YES!

High Protein Pumpkin Pie

Serves 4

1 can pumpkin puree
2 cups egg whites (I used Egg Beaters)
1/2 cup water (you could sub unsweetened almond milk too)
1 scoop vanilla whey protein (I used GNC wheybolic vanilla)
2 tbsp stevia powder (or approx 20 drops of liquid)
2 tbsp whole almonds, ground (or 1 tbsp almond flour)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp pumpkin pie spice (you can also sub in equal parts nutmeg, clove, ginger, and cinnamon)

What you do: Preheat oven to 250*F. Grind the almonds into powder in the blender or food processor. Add the remaining ingredients and blend until smooth. Pour into a greased 8x8" pan and bake for 60 min.

Cool and cut into fourths. Store chilled.
