Have you ever had one of those days when you’re rummaging through your refrigerator and pantry lookin’ for a clean treat, but nothin’ seems to jump out at you? Maybe it’s just me, but that’s how these crazy creations of mine come to life. I saw a beautiful organic spaghetti squash, a can of full fat organic coconut milk, and Tru Vibe’s “Live your dreams- Maca Powder Miracle”, and thought.. “Why the heck not?!” Desperate dessert times call for desperate dessert measures, which is how “The Chipper Chipmunk Coconut-Spaghetti Squash-Maca Pie” was born. Necessity is the mother of invention, and I’m proud to say this recipe mama invented a tasty pie worth givin’ a try!!
First the health benefit highlights of my clean treat:
ORGANIC SPAGHETTI SQUASH:
ORGANIC COCONUT MILK:
ORGANIC MACA POWDER:
Now let’s set our eyes on the prize, which is a spaghetti-squash pie!!
Here’s what you’ll need:
-1 can of full fat coconut milk (I used Thai Kitchen Organic Unsweetened Coconut Milk.)
-2 organic eggs PLUS 6 tbsps of liquid egg whites
-1 cup of organic spaghetti squash (already cooked and shredded)
-1/2 cup of Stevia in the Raw (or you can use 1/4 cup of raw organic honey or maple syrup if you prefer)
-1/2 cup of organic coconut flour (I love Nutiva’s.)
-3 tbsps of organic chia seeds (I love Nutiva’s)
-2 tsps of organic maca (I love TruVibe’s Organic Maca)
-1 tsp of saigon cinnamon
-1 tsp of vanilla extract
-1 tsp baking powder
-1 tsp of baking soda
-1/8 tsp of sea salt
Here’s how to bake it:
Step 1- Preheat your oven to 350 Degrees Fahrenheit.
Step 2- Combine all of the ingredients in a food processor except for the chia seeds & spaghetti squash, and pulse until well combined.
Step 3- Move the mixture to a medium size bowl and stir in the spaghetti squash and chia seeds. Step 4- Spray a pie tin with extra virgin coconut oil (I love Kelapo’s) and pour the pie mix into the tin, spreading evenly.
Step 5- Bake for 40-45 minutes (depending on your oven) until a toothpick can be cleanly removed from the center of the pie.
Step 6- Let the pie cool and then get your grub on!! (I prefer my pie to be cold, so I eat it after an hour or two in the fridge.)
Optional: Add coconut whip cream, fresh fruit, or dark chocolate drizzle to your pie for added YUM!
This pie is delightfully moist, sweet, and a guilt-free treat!! If you’re in the mood for chocolate, don’t forget to checkout my Lower Glycemic Sweet Potato Brownies or Carkies (Carrot-Almond-Cacao Cookies)! 😉
