Crustless Pumpkin Pies

*Grain/gluten free, dairy free, low carb, paleo*

RECIPE: (Makes 8-10 ramekins, 8×8 or even 9×14 dish; use what you’d like)

Ingredients:
1 can (15oz) pure pumpkin
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/3 cup granulated erythritol sugar substitute, monk fruit sweetener (Swerve or Lankanto brand  are good)
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
2 eggs (free range organic) beaten
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 cup unsweetened nut milk

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400F.
In a large mixing bowl, add pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, erythritol & sea salt and mix together.
In a small bowl add eggs & vanilla & whisk well. Add eggs to pumpkin mixture.
Slowly stir in milk until fully incorporated.
Pour pumpkin mixture into individual oven-safe ramekins or a well sprayed Pyrex baking dish.
Place ramekins on baking sheet or Pyrex directly in oven.
Bake approx 40 minutes, or until center of each ramekin is cooked. The “pie” will be set & pulled slightly away from sides.

Fudgey Flourless Brownies (Bear, Deer, Tiger)

Ingredients:

  • 2 scoops (60 grams) protein powder; vanilla or chocolate dairy free Bone Broth or collagen powder
  • 1/3 cup (30g) Special Dark unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup (24g) powdered PB2 OR 1/8 (2 TB) coconut flour
  • 1/3 cup granulated Erythritol sweetener (I use Swerve brand)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 whole egg (organic and cage free)
  • 1/4 cup (60g) plain pumpkin puree (or can use unsweetened applesauce or mashed banana; pumpkin works best)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond/cashew milk
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract (optional)

Directions:

Combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl. Add wet ingredients and mix well. It should be a fairly thick batter!

Pour into small Pyrex (I used a 8×6 square dish) using a Spatula as it will be thick. Bake at 350F for approx. 30 minutes. It will look slightly underbaked, but a toothpick should come out fairly clean from the center.

Let them completely cool before cutting (and use a wet knife as they are a bit sticky!)
Also, make sure to use parchment paper for easy clean up.

Makes 12 brownies (approx 2×2 in)

Ginger Molasses Cookies

1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp ginger
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp cloves
1 TB organic blackstrap molasses
2 TB unsweetened applesauce
1 egg, room temp
1/8 cup (1/4 stick) grass fed butter, softened

Directions:

Beat the butter, egg & Swerve with a hand mixer in a large bowl until blended. All molasses & applesauce; blend again. In a medium bowl, combine all dry ingredients. Add the dry into the wet slowly while mixing. Chill dough for at least 20 min.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper & pre heat oven to 350F.

When ready, use a spoon to scoop small balls of dough to sheet. Dough will be pretty soft (not able to roll) & they will spread.
