While many people look forward to Thanksgiving for the turkey and mashed potatoes, I wait all year for one thing: pie. With a family of six, my mom finds it crazy that year after year we still want both pumpkin and apple pie for Thanksgiving dessert (her apple pie recipe is still the best I’ve ever tasted, but I may also be biased). Regardless, we devour both pies every turkey day for several days after. Both pies have a fruit or vegetable base, so it’s healthy enough to eat for breakfast…right? At least that’s what I tell myself.
These 9 Healthy Homemade Thanksgiving Pie Recipes cover the classics–apple, pecan, and pumpkin–with healthier substitutions or twists. This means that you can enjoy more of your favorite holiday dishes guilt-free. That definitely sounds like a win to me!
