The holiday season means the beginning of countless family gatherings, and no holiday meal is complete without some good old-fashioned pumpkin pie! Unfortunately, the calorie content of most pumpkin pie recipes leaves dieters with no choice but to avoid the dessert table altogether.
It’s hard to have holiday cheer without pie, so we’ve created a macro-friendly pumpkin pie recipe as our holiday gift to you. Make a few of these for your next get-together, or make an entire pie for yourself as a pre-workout meal or holiday treat.
- 2 scoops Snickerdoodle Core MRP
- 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- 1 tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp baking soda
- ½ tsp cinnamon

- 1 pinch of salt
*Optional: Top with 1-2 servings fat free whip cream
- 1 cup canned pumpkin
- 1/3 cup low calorie pancake syrup
- 1 tbsp ground flax “egg”
