    Thanksgiving Recipe: Pumpkin Pie Bites

    These might be the most adorable pumpkin pies we’ve ever seen, and at only 16-20 calories and 3 grams of carbs (!) per bite, you can eat an entire plate full of them without burning through your macros. In order to keep the calories low, we swap traditional pie crust for wonton wrappers. Additionally, we use a combination of maple syrup and monk fruit sweetener to lower overall carbs. If you’re not into monk fruit, simply swap it out with an equal weight of white sugar or coconut sugar (just don’t forget that that will add calories!) Calories: 16-20, Protein: 1 g, Carbs: 3 g, Fat 0 g Ingredients: 48 Wonton Wrappers 1 15.5 Oz Can Of Pumpkin Puree (Not ....
