Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15-25 minutes
Approximately 3 mini pies per serving


  • 2 packages (30 to 40 shells) premade mini phyllo or other pastry shells. If frozen, prepare according to package directions.

Pumpkin Filling

  • One-15-ounce can pure pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup egg whites or egg substitute*
  • 1/4 cup Truvia baking blend**
  • 1/3 cup coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 cup graham cracker crumbs, divided

Whipped Cream

  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Pinch sweetener to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk pumpkin with egg substitute, sweetener, coconut milk and spice until thoroughly combined.
  3. Place premade pastry shells onto lined baking sheet.
  4. Spoon mixture into pastry shells, filling each shell nearly to the top.
  5. Sprinkle with half of the graham cracker crumbs.
  6. Bake at 425°F for 15-25 minutes or until top of pie filling cracks.
