I just can’t. There aren’t really any words for the love I fell in over the past weekend when I sunk my teeth into this gem!

That’s right – this girl fell in love with pumpkin pie. A love for a squash that I merely only tolerated to please the masses. And I also had hopes that I’d finally understand what all the hype and the craze is all about. Well, with this recipe, I think I’m finally starting to get it! After about 4 of these mini pies, it’s safe to say that I am totally getting it…

The thing about pie though. Most of the time, your calories and unhealthy qualities are all found in the crust. Sure, crust is lovely and flaky, and fan-freaking-tastic. But it’s definitely not going to help me to be able to button up my pants after Thanksgiving dinner!

So, although the pie itself is a basic (albeit basically DELICIOUS!) pumpkin pie recipe, the crust is completely overhauled into something guilt-free and actually nutrient-filled! And the flavors are so complimentary that I can’t imagine eating pumpkin pie with “normal” crust ever again. The nuttiness from the walnuts and the sweetness of the honey. And don’t even freak out about the quinoa. You may think you know what this is going to taste like because of the quinoa, but I can betcha you are wrong. The quinoa flavor is lost in the dates, honey, and walnuts and just help to bind everything together and bake up to a perfect vessel for your pie filling.

    These little pumpkin pie bites look amazing. I love that the crust is lower calories too. I’d be thrilled if you shared this at my Creative Ways Link Party. It just went live last night. Hope to see you there.
    Blessings,
