Pumpkin pie squares

October 6, 2018

It is Thanksgiving weekend here in Ontario, Canada and Pumpkin pies will be enjoyed by millions! Store bought pies are usually loaded with sugar and will not be very point friendly when it comes to WW. I wanted to create a lightened up pumpkin pie square, I thought the square would be better for portion control and these did not disappoint. I used greek yogurt and lowered the sugar to bring them in at just 3 smart points each on WW freestyle, they are simply delicious. They need some time to set in the fridge after baking and you can even leave them in overnight to set (I did). Happy Thanksgiving to all my fellow Canadians πŸ™‚ *Note- you will need to let these set in the fridge for at least a few hours.

Pumpkin pie squares
Recipe type: Baking
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 16
3SP blue, green & purple /2PP
  • 1.5 cups graham crumbs
  • 2 Tbsp light butter, melted (I used Gay Lea)
  • 1 Tbsp water
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1.5 cups canned pumpkin
  • 1 cup plain non fat greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 Tbsp flour
  • 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt
  1. Preheat oven to 350F, line a 9 inch dish with some parchment paper and lightly spray.
  2. In a dish mix your graham crumbs, melted butter and water together, pat down into your dish and pre-bake for 8 minutes. Remove from oven but leave the oven on.
  3. In a bowl mix together your eggs and brown sugar, stir in your pumpkin, yogurt and vanilla.
  4. Mix in the flour and spices/salt. Once it is well blended pour out into your dish on top of crumbs and bake for 45 minutes, make sure the middle is set and does not jiggle.
  5. Let cool completely then refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight.
  6. Cut into 16 squares and serve, best stored in the fridge until ready to serve.

    These look so good. Unfortunately I didn’t see them until today.,lol and Thanksgiving is already over.
    I wanted to ask about the canned pumpkin – is that the plain one or the one already spiced. I love pumpkin any time of the year.

    I made these. They were so delicious!! Regarding the crust: mine turned into mush. I used ‘I can’t believe it’s not butter’. What did I do wrong??

      Hi Linda, hmmm really? Was it mush pre-baking or afterward? And you used the right amount of butter/water? I’m not too sure, mine was rather dry

    I made these last week and they were good – but not great. I think my expectations were too high since everything I have made on your site is always a knockout!!!! For 3 WW smart points, they did the trick for a pumpkin fix. I think I will make them again and add a little more spices for extra flavor. My crust turned out fine.

    Hi Drizzle,

    I love your recipes and website! It’s helped me tremendously on my weight-loss journey. Almost 50 pounds gone! I was wondering, could this be made without the crust and how much points would it be without it?

      Hi Ashley, so glad to hear you are enjoying the recipes and congrats on the weight loss, that is fantastic! I think you can make these without the crust, most of the points are actually in the crust so they would only be 1 point without it however I’m not too sure how they would be served as it might be a little messy

      Did you use the numbers given? Please note as mentioned in my post that includes all ingredients (pumpkin as well which is a zero food) so the SP value will be higher
