Craving carrot-cake? These muffins are out of this world...and shhhh, no one will even be able to tell that they are gluten-free too! Your mouth will thank you.Submitted by MRS_MORRIS
Enjoy this guilt- and gluten-free version of pumpkin pie. If you are craving a pie "crust," try spreading the pudding on graham crackers. This is also great stirred into a bowl of warm oatmeal.Submitted by JOEYMARIEP
As with my pecan pie and lemon pie; this pie is crustless. Those of you who have a penchant for pumpkinpumpkin pies with decadent crusts - my profound apologies. You could try pouring this blend into a prepared crust in order to satisfy your culinary sensibilities. Beyond that - my suggestion would be to look elsewhere at some of the other fantastic pumpkin piepumpkin pie recipes out there. But those of you who want to whip up a pumpkin pie that is ridiculously quick and easy, with a gorgeous creamy texture, and then move onto other things - give this a turn in your blender. I served this up to some of my most discerning pigs a few weeks ago, and everyone commented on how fantastic the texture was; as well as the delicious flavour. Submitted by THEBLENDERGIRL
While sugar may play a necessary role in some baked goods because of chemical reactions that result in the proper texture, rising, et cetera, quick breads are a wonderful category of sweets for which the complete substitution of a low-calorie sweetener such as Splenda is not only completely acceptable from a baking standpoint, but for taste as well.
Splenda is not truly calorie free; there are approximately 2 calories per teaspoon (compared to 15 calories per teaspoon of sugar!), so when utilizing in baked goods be sure to add 97 calories per cup of Splenda if you are concerned with accurate nutrition info. If you are not yet brave enough to try for a complete substitution, feel free to try the recipe with the Splenda Baking Blend (half sugar and half splenda), but it is worth trying the entire recipe with Splenda to see just how delicious "guiltless" baking can be!
This recipe is also included in the "guiltless" category because it is virtually fat free! The use of applesauce in quick breads in lieu of oil is not only heart healthy and MUCH lower in calorie (its use saves about 60 calories per half-inch slice!), but it results in a tender, sweet quickbread.
I've kept the whole eggs in this recipe instead of using an egg substitute or egg whites, as the caloric value difference is only about 5 calories per slice and I find that the yolks are a necessary binding ingredient. If you are concerned with cholesterol (and the recipe as written only has about 20 grams per slice) try it with egg whites or egg substitute (3/4 cup) and let us know how it goes!

I am a personal chef for a couple who try to stay away from gluten and refined sugar. I created this recipe to give them a tasty treat in the place of those old fashioned ones. ENJOY!Submitted by FLIPINFROGS
