    Saw this posted yesterday - made it last night! Amazingly yummy!!


    2-Minute Pumpkin Pie
    If you need a little something to satisfy your sweet tooth, whip up this 75-calorie pumpkin pie for one. This simple recipe, pared down to the most basic and common ingredients, only takes 2 minutes to make, but the end result tastes as delicious as traditional, calorie-packed pie.
    Ingredients:
    1/2 c. pumpkin puree
    1/4 c. egg whites (from an egg or carton)
    Sweetener
    Cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice

    Directions:
    ?Mix together all the ingredients. If you prefer a flan-like texture, add more pumpkin; if you prefer a cake-like texture, add more egg whites. Microwave for two minutes. Use a mix of Greek yogurt, hazelnut cream cheese, and pumpkin pie spice for the icing. Top with toasted pecans. (I topped mine with a little Fat-free Coolwhip)

    1 cake mix (any flavor but chocolate or spice are my favorites for this)
    1 can (regular size) pumpkin

    mix together put in prepared muffin tin or papers and bake.

    Sooo yummy and low fat because you are leaving out the oil and eggs. They are very dense (the chocolate ones are more the consistency of brownies than muffins) My skinny-mini husband likes to put cream cheese frosting on the spice cake ones and a friend now makes them for her kids that suffer from allergies as a treat. The kids love them.

    Pumpkin Hummus
    Use a food processor to purée together canned pumpkin, tahini, garlic, parsley, ground cumin, olive oil and lemon juice. Sprinkle toasted pumpkin seeds and smoked paprika on top. Serve with pita chips.

    1 cup cottage cheese mixed with 1/2 cup pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice to taste. I blend the cottage cheese with flavored sugar free syrup and a little milk until the "chunks" are gone then add the pumpkin and spice and mix a little longer. I sometimes put mine in the freezer to make it colder. It tastes like pumpkin pie filling in a pudding form :-) I got this from another message board and tried it without blending the cottage cheese and didn't like the "texture".

    What is the "regular size"?
    Single pie can?
    or
    Two pie can?

    I basically do this, only I use 1/2 c cottage cheese, 1/2 c pumpkin, 30g of walnuts, and a bunch of cinnamon. Mix it together and om nom nom.
