New Year's Morning Has Broken

Posted on 05 Jan 2012 by maisha (posted in: blogs)

New Year's morning has broken and long since gone,
Yet no word from me, might something be wrong?
I assure you all is as well as can be,
The new year has inspired not one, but two recipes!

Deconstructed pumpkin pie: crustless pumpkin pie with carrot cake granola, whipped topping and chocolate sprinkles.

Crustless Pumpkin Pie (serves 6)

Nutritional value per serving (based on 6 servings):


  • 200 g (1 c) non-fat cottage cheese
  • 360 mL (1.5 c) pumpkin puree
  • 60 g palm sugar
  • 200 g (1 package) reduced fat or non-fat cream cheese
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1 whole egg
  • 28 g molasses
  • pumpkin pie or speculaas spice to taste (I use 1/2 tbsp)


  1. Throw everything into a blender or food processor and blend until smooth.
  2. Pour into a lightly greased baking dish (I use a glass lasagna dish) and bake until set (up to 1 hour).

Top with carrot cake granola and diggety-dig in...
