Everyone loves a delicious slice of pie in the fall, especially around the holidays. While there is nothing wrong with eating a regular slice of pie, sometimes you may want to avoid excess added sugar. This may especially be the case if you are eating pie all the time…and we are all guilty of that during the holiday season.
If you have found yourself in this scenario, there are plenty of amazing and tasty pie recipes you can make that have little to no added sugar! Just because a pie does not use lots of sugar like its traditional counterparts does not mean it is going to lack sweetness or flavor.
To get you started, we have complied a list of the best low-sugar pie recipes to help guide you in the direction of some healthier pie options! Let’s take a peek at these beauties below.
No Sugar Apple Pie
Let’s start with a classic – apple pie. Most people love a warm slice of apple pie, often with a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream. Hey, if you are saving sugar on the pie some ice cream won’t kill you. This apple pie simply uses ingredients like a pie shell, generally low in sugar, cinnamon, apple juice concentrate for sweetness (get a brand without added sugar), and fresh tart and tangy green apples. It is all baked together for a naturally sweet and slightly tart apple pie.
Low-Sugar Pumpkin Pie
With all of that amazing pumpkin flavor and none of the extra sugar, this pumpkin pie is the ideal solution to reducing your sugar intake around the holidays. Instead of regular cane sugar, this pie uses a small amount of vanilla stevia to give it sweetness. We know that using stevia is not for everyone, but if it is an option for you and your family, this is a great rich pie to indulge in guilt-free.
Healthy Peanut Butter Pie
Peanut butter and chocolate are a winning combination and there are no rules that pay you can only eat pumpkin and apple pie in the fall. This creamy pie only has two tablespoons of maple syrup in the pie crust and body of the pie is made and sweetened with only ripe and sweet bananas.
Goat Cheese, Honey, and Rye Crust Pie
Want to make one of the oldest pie recipes to date modeled after the ancient Romans? If so, you need to run to the kitchen to make this unique pie. Your guests will be in awe of the flavors and textures happening in this pie recipe. Although there is a bit more sugar in this pie, most of the sweetness comes from honey, a much healthier and more wholesome form of sugar. It is paired with tangy goat cheese, cream cheese, and rye flour to make for a special flavor profile.
To reduce the amount of sugar in the recipe, you can skip out on the apple topping or add only one or two tablespoons of honey to the apple topping mixture.
