Pumpkin Pie Bars THM-S

This past weekend as I watched snowflakes swirling past the window, all I could think of was — I’m not ready for fall to be over with the colorful leaves, apples, and pumpkins. But just as God has promised there will always be the cycle of seasons, after fall comes winter. My teacher daughter was given 4 huge neck pumpkins by one of her student. These pumpkins make the best pies and if you are in a crunch for time this recipe tastes just like a pumpkin pie. I love that it is so easy to make without the hassle of rolling out pie crusts.

Pumpkin Pie Bars THM-S

For crust: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine all ingredients in a food processor. Pulse until mixture is crumbly. Press crumbs in layer in a 9 x 13 glass baking pan. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until light brown. Remove from oven. Set aside. Combine filling ingredient in a blender jar. Blend for 2 minutes.  Pour carefully over crust. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until set.  Remove from oven and cool completely.  18 servings

**NOTE: THM Oat Fiber is the best on the market. It does not have the gritty texture and funny after taste of some kinds.

Old-Fashioned Caramel Pudding THM-S

If you grew up in the rich Pennsylvania Dutch heritage like I did, puddings made with cornstarch were a staple in many homes. Many of our grandparents had a family cow or milked cows for an income. Caramel Pudding has always been a favorite in our family and my late mother-in-law made the best pudding. She always browned the butter and caramelized the brown sugar she used.  Brown butter is another Pennsylvania Dutch practice that most of us grew up with and is unheard of in other areas.  This recipe has satisfied my craving for the traditional sugar laden pudding my grandma would make.

Old-Fashioned Caramel Pudding THM-S

Combine milk and cream together, set aside. In a 2 quart sauce pan melt butter over medium heat. Cook butter until it is golden brown. Add sweetener. Cook 2 minutes. Add 1 3/4 cups of the milk mixture to the saucepan. Heat to just about boiling point. With a hand blender,  blend the remaining milk mixture, eggs, and glucomannan together until smooth.  Add 1/2 cup of hot milk and blend again. Whisk egg mixture into the saucepan. Whisk until it thickens slightly. Remove  from heat. Whisk flavoring, salt, and molasses. Soften gelatin in water for 5 minutes. Whisk into hot pudding. Cool. Serves 4-6.

Use the larger amount of gelatin for a firmer set.

I blend the pudding with my hand blender after I add the gelatin for an extra smooth creamy texture!

Maple Walnut Angel Food Cake THM-S

As a young girl I spent fall afternoons picking up English Walnuts with my grandma. They were a favorite  and much preferred by our family over the Black Walnuts which have a stronger taste. This Angel Food Cake combines the flavors of maple with walnuts for a very appealing taste in a light fluffy cake.  The frosting can be eliminated for a FP as there are very minimal amount of walnuts in a slice.

Maple Walnut Angel Food Cake

Cake:

Icing:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a mixing bowl, whip egg whites and frothy. Add cream of tartar and powdered erythitol. Whip until soft peaks form. Add Maple and Vanilla Flavoring. Whip until egg whites mound in soft mounds that hold their shape. Stir together Stevia, Collagen, and oat fiber. Carefully mix the dry ingredients into the egg whites until combined. Fold in walnuts. Spoon batter into an angel food cake pan. Swirl a knife through the batter to eliminate air pockets. Place on the lowest oven rack. Bake for 40 minutes***. Remove from oven and turn cake upside down to cool for 4 hours. Carefully remove cake from pan be running a sharp knife along the edges of the cake pan. Icing: Melt butter and allow it to simmer until browned. Cool slightly. In a mixer bowl combine butter, erythitol, cream cheese, cream, Maple Flavoring, and Stevia. whip until smooth and creamy. Spread over cooled cake and garnish with chopped walnuts.  Serves 12.

*I use a coffee grinder to powder the erythitol.

**There is a big difference in oat fiber, I will only use THM oat fiber. It is the best. I fluff it up with a spoon, than spoon it into my measuring cup. Do not scoop it as that will pack it into the cup.

**You can over-beat egg white which will cause the cake to collapse after it has been baked. You want soft-medium-stiff whites. They should be soft mounds. This recipe fills my 6 quart mixer bowl almost full when they are fully whipped.

***Oven temps do vary.

 

If you prefer you can use either English or Black walnuts or even Pecans.

Amish Macaroni Potato Salad THM-S

Amish Macaroni Potato salad has always been a favorite with our family and for carry-in dish dinners. I have often wished for a healthier version (without potatoes) and after numerous attempts  I have come up with this recipe using spaghetti squash. Our family loves it and the serving dish comes back to the kitchen completely empty.  Most people are surprised what is used to replace the potatoes but comment on how tasty it really is.

Amish Macaroni Potato Salad  THM-S

  • 1 box  Dreamfield Elbows 
  • 4 cups cooked spaghetti squash
  • 2 cups finely diced celery
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1/2 cup finely diced onion
  • 6 hard boiled eggs, chopped

Dressing:

Cook pasta following instructions on box. Drain and rinse well. Chop spaghetti squash so the strands are no longer than 3/4 inch. Toss together elbows, spaghetti squash, celery, carrots, onion, and eggs. Combine mayo, salt, apple cider vinegar, mustard, Gentle Sweet, and garlic powder together. Pour over salad and stir lightly. Refrigerate for 2-4 hours for flavors to combine. 12-14 servings.

**I often cook the spaghetti squash in the microwave, each half for 8 minutes.

Kefir Olive Garden Salad Dressing THM-S

Olive Garden Salad is an all time favorite in our family and what is not to like about crunchy sprouted bread croutons,  peperoncino peppers, grape tomatoes, red onions, and this dressing tossed with romaine and iceberg lettuce . This recipe uses double fermented Kefir as a base which gives you healthy probiotics. I used low-fat kefir which does lighten the calorie load just a bit but still give a flavorful dressing. Romano Cheese gives the best flavor but Parmesan cheese can be used as a substitute.

Kefir Olive Garden Salad Dressing THM-S

Combine all ingredient in blender. Blend until smooth. Refrigerate 4 hours for flavors to combine. Dressing will thicken as it sets. A serving is 2 tablespoons. 18 servings

Crust-less Pumpkin Cheesecake Pie THM-S

Browsing through a magazine this past week I saw a recipe for Pumpkin Cheesecake Pie but off course it was loaded with sugar. I decide to try a sugar-free one and for the lack of time made it without a crust. It was very well received by the taste-testers in my family and now I have a new favorite for the fall holidays. In this recipe I use my home canned pumpkin but bought canned pumpkin works just as well or you can substitute well-drained cooked butternut squash.

Crust-less Pumpkin Cheesecake Pie  THM-S

Cheesecake layer:

Pumpkin Layer:

  • 1 1/4 cups pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1/3 cup Greek Yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons THM Gentle Sweet or Brown Sugar Sweetener*
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Walnut Streusel Topping:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Grease the bottom of a 9 inch glass pie pan. Set aside. In a mixer bowl whip together cream cheese and sweetener until smooth. Add egg, vanilla, and salt. Mix until just combined. Spread evenly on the bottom of the pie pan. Set aside. Combine pumpkin layer ingredients in blender jar or in a bowl. Blend until smooth. Carefully pour over cream cheese mixture. For streusel topping combine baking blend, Brown Sugar Sweetener, and walnuts together. Mix in cold butter until just combined. Sprinkle over the pumpkin layer. Cover the pie plate with foil–folding up the center so it doesn’t touch the filling. Place in over for 25 minutes. Remove foil and bake 15-20 minutes longer or until center of the pie is just so set. Remove from oven and cool for 8 hours or until completely set. Serves 8

* I prefer using Brown Sugar Sweetener for the added flavor it gives.

  • 1/2 cup Sour Cream
  • 7 cups mixed berries, strawberries, blueberries, red raspberries, black berries

Garnishes:

Crust: In a mixer bowl combine baking blend, oat flour, salt, and baking powder. Mix together. Add butter or lard. Mix util crumbly. Add beaten egg. Mix until dough clings together. Shape into a ball. Roll between to pieces of Saran wrap. Remove the top piece of plastic wrap. Flip pie crust into a 9 inch deep dish pie pan. Flute edges. Bake at 350 degrees F. for 6-8 minutes. Cool completely.

Filling: Soften gelatin in 1/2 cup almond milk. Set aside  for 5 minutes. Blend remaining almond milk with cottage cheese, flavorings, Gentle Sweet, and Sour Cream in blender container until smooth. Heat gelatin/almond milk mixture until syrupy and gelatin is dissolved. Start the blender on low speed. Slowly pour the unflavored gelatin mixture into the blender with the blender is running. Blend until through combined. Pour over 8 cups mixed berries. Stir to coat fruit. Spoon into cooled baked pie crust. Refrigerate.

Garnishes: When ready to serve, combine cream, stevia, vanilla, and xanthan gum. Whip until stiff. Garnish pie with whipped cream and berries. Serves 8.

The filling as is listed above is a THM S. It can be served as a THM FP by using fat-free cottage cheese and replacing the Sour Cream with fat-free Greek Yogurt. Serve in individual parfait glasses without the pie crust.

Oat flour is used in the pie crust to give a flaky bite. It is still within the carb limits for a THM S.
