Pie On Sunday

9 Dec

Welcome to a new series! Every Sunday I will be posting a healthy dessert recipe that is vegan and all natural. Each serving will be under 200 calories :)

Since we are pie lovers over here, it only make sense to start the series of with a pie recipe.

    That sounds amazing, I would like to adapt it to make it gluten free :)

      I know you can buy gluten free baking ingredients! Also, I saw at our local grocery store some gluten free graham crackers! I intend on purchasing some soon because I am craving s’mores something bad!

    That looks FAB. But what is a Graham cracker?

      They are delicious!
      But here is the Wikipedia answer to that:
      The graham cracker (play /ˈɡræm/, /ˈɡreɪm/, or /ˈɡreɪ.əm/; also graham wafer) was invented in 1829 in Bound Brook, New Jersey, by Presbyterian minister Sylvester Graham. The original graham cracker was made with graham flour, a combination of finely-ground unbleached-wheat flour with the wheat bran and germ coarsely-ground and added back in providing nutrition and flavor. While graham crackers started out as a mild food, unsweetened or mildly sweetened, they are more commonly known as a sugar and/or honey sweetened baked good that approaches a cookie (or the British English term biscuit).
      lol!
      Have you ever had a s’more? Traditionally they are made with graham crackers. Its 2 crackers with a roasted marshmallow and a piece of chocolate wedged in the middle. SO GOOD!

    Fantastic idea Tina! Love healthy desserts! I like pecan pie–especially when there is chocolate involved :)

      Pecan Pie is a personal favorite of mine too! HmmmI’ll have to find away to make a healthier version. Thanks for the comment!
