pecan-pumpkin-pie-01It’s that time a year again, holiday office parties, charity events, and family get togethers. These gatherings aren’t normally very physique friendly between the alcohol, stuffing, and calorie laden desserts. Well not to worry, we have you covered with a delicious dessert you can bring that won’t blow your macros (and your waist line) while still tasting just as delicious as traditional pumpkin pie! Just to test it out, I even brought it to my office holiday party and it was gone in the first 5 minutes and no one ever suspected it was healthy! So enjoy a slice, or the whole darn thing because the entire pie has less calories than 1 slice of many of the traditional recipes!
