“Sweet Potato” Pie

Well, it is really not made with Sweet Potatoes (but can be).  Another healthy Thanksgiving recipe 🙂

Approx 3 cups butternut squash (for lower carb/cal count), cooked (or sweet potatoes )
3 egg whites
1/3 c almond milk
1/3 c sf maple syrup
sweetener to taste
1 tsp guar gum or about 1 T phsyllium husk (to thicken)
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp salt
Optional…toast some pecans, walnuts or almonds and put them on top (or top with some mini marshmallows for the last 8-10 min of baking)
 
Beat all ingredients together.  Pour into pie plate and bake at 350 for about 45-50 min 🙂
