Pumpkin Pudding

So I am working on a longer post but in the meantime, with Thanksgiving a day away and pumpkins everywhere I turn, I just had to share one of my favourite dishes with you. I developed this recipe several years ago as a healthier replacement for pumpkin pie, but in reality it is great year round as a snack or as part of a healthy breakfast. It eliminates the trans fat from pastry while providing antioxidants, soluble fibre, and protein. It even freezes fairly well. I will be making it this weekend for sure. Hope you enjoy!!
