Personal Pumpkin Pie



Who says pumpkin pie is for fall only, satisfy that craving all year long with this INSTANT delightful treat for one. I actually saw this recipe on pinterest and had an open can of pumpkin to use up, left over from some pumpkin overnight oats recipe and thought I would give it a  try. Well needless to say I thoroughly enjoyed every bite reminding me of my favorite pie that I can now enjoy all year round. It tastes very similar to the real thing although not as decadent. It is a rather healthy indulgence, as its low in calories & even packs in some protein.
