Low Carb, Crusless Mini Pumpkin Pies

I love pumpkin pie especially during the festive season. Pumpkin pie however is not low carb, so it took a few tries, but I finally came up with a crustless, refined sugar free, flavorful pie recipe that is creamy and super easy to make.

The recipe is sweetened with stevia. It’s not an easy ingredient to work with, it does not provide the recipe with the extra volume that honey or maple syrup would, however you can substitute the stevia for granulated sugar should you want a fluffier, thicker texture.

This recipe is very tasty and an excellent compromise should you be following a low carb diet like myself.
