Healthy Protein Sweet Potato Pie

6 Slices149 cals

Keep your seasonal cravings at bay with the help of our Healthy Protein Sweet Potato Pie! This high protein pie recipe is made with just a few simple ingredients, packed with holiday flavor, and guaranteed to fill you up!

The first thing you need to do for this one is to cook 1 pound worth of sweet potatoes. You can do this either in the oven or to keep it quick, in the microwave.

Microwave Sweet Potatoes

To microwave your sweet potatoes all you need to do is poke them with a fork so they can breathe and throw them in the microwave for around 12-15 minutes. If your microwave has a potato setting, just use that and flip them halfway through.

Sweet Potato Pie

Add into a large mixing bowl your cooked sweet potatoes (chop them up so they mix in easier), 2 scoops of a vanilla protein powder, 2 large whole eggs, 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract, 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon, 1/4 cup of unsweetened apple sauce, 1/2 cup of unsweetened milk substitute, 1 tablespoon of sugar free vanilla syrup, and 3/4 cup of your choice sweetener.

Mix all of those ingredients together until your mix is smooth.

Switch up the flavor of your healthy sweet potato pie by mixing and matching your flavors. Think chocolate protein powder with chocolate milk substitute for a chocolate flavored pie!

Take out a pie pan or dish, coat it with some non-stick cooking spray, and pour your mix in.

Top your pie with some crushed up nuts or anything else you want and put your pie into the oven on 350F/176C for around an hour.

Remove it from the oven, let it cool, and optionally top it. I topped mine with some fat free whipped cream and ground cinnamon! Let us know what you top your healthy protein sweet potato pie with in the comments below.

Add even more protein to the recipe by topping this with one of our Protein Frosting Recipes!

      What is a good substitute for vanilla syrup?

      • Derek Howes on May 27, 2020 at 5:57 pm

        You should be fine without it. Alternatively you could also use a sugar free (maple) syrup if you have that around you!

      Apple sauce you can cook easily yourself:
      Clean 1 kg apples. Cook them in little water (pay attention that they don’t burn, the fruit sugar caramelises fast). Cook til they are soft and fall apart. Blender until it is a saus. What you don’t use you can freeze or eat with some cinnamon as a healthy snack.
      That’s all and succes😁

    Oh, and what about xylitol as a sweetener substitute? Thanks!

  4. Carmen on November 19, 2013 at 12:00 am

    I’d like to use stevia as a sweetener. Rather than the 3/4 cups sweetener, how much should I use?

  5. Lucy on March 20, 2013 at 12:00 am

    Can you make this without the yolks?

    • Derek Howes on March 21, 2013 at 12:00 am

      You can. Use extra egg whites and applesauce as the substitute for the yolks!

      • Lucy on March 22, 2013 at 12:00 am

        Thank you. Your cornbread is in the oven as I type this! Can’t wait to try it! You’re a savior!

    You forgot the applesauce in your ingredient list. BTW, it comes out ok without it, but I am guessing it is better with it.

    • Derek Howes on January 24, 2013 at 12:00 am

      Good catch Jim! I appreciate that. Added it to the list – definitely a lot better with it. Sorry about that
