Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the answer to that question. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I find an decent answer. You should email the people at Dukan Diet as they probably could answer your Dukan Diet question..
Okay, so how does this "fit" into the Dukan Diet program? It seems very tempting.....
Red Alert! I would stay away from this as a newbie that's for sure!..
If you used Dukan Diet pancake mix of Fiber-One pancake mix in place of the biscuit mix then the stats would be close to a Dukan Diet dessert. You'd actually have to eat1 1/2 servings!!! I didn't run the #'sjust off the top of my head...
Those of us who follow N.S. on our own will use Heart Healthy Bisquick. The receipt says at the bottom that 1/8 is 112 calories which would fall under a N.S. desert but may not have enough protein. I wondered if it could be Doctored ie. take away 1 tblsp Bisquick and add 1 tblsp Any Whey instead.
Anyone know? Christina? Graylady? help!!..
Using just the protein in the egg, egg white, and milk it works out to just over 4g protein per serving...
Protien is one reason I'd use the Dukan Diet or the Fiber-One mixes. It'd raise the protien some but not quite enough. You could also add a couple Tbsp. of soy flour..
Editno, you'd have to use quite a bit of soy to make in work. Whey powder it would have to be. I don't think you'd have to sub the mix thoughjust add the whey powd...
I think Chris has a great Pumpkin Pie on her website if I;m not mistaken. I believe I made it last year. I'd give it to you if I had any idea where I had it stored. Sorry. Check Christina's site..
Thanks Debart..I did look up Christina's. I have put it below. However hers with a pie crust is 164.5 calories and the one I have posted shows 112 calories with a bottom crust from the Bisquick. If I changed mine using the splenda and egg beaters like Christina's then I think it would work..
Pumkin Pie or Custard.
3/4c Splenda(or 1/4 c Splenda Brown sugar & 1/2 c Splenda).
1/2 tsp salt.
2 tsp Cinnamon.
1/2 tsp ginger.
1/4 tsp ground cloves.
1/2 cup egg beaters.
1 can pumkin(15oz) NOT pumkin pie mix!!.
1 can FF evaporated milk.
Preheat oven to 425. Mix sugar and spices in a bowl. Add egg beaters and pumkin and mix well. Carefully add the milk. For a pie, pour into a prepared pie shell. For a custard, pour into a glass baking dish or you could use individual custard dishes.
Bake at 425 for 15 min. then lower the temp to 350 and bake for 40-50 min or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean..
For custard only:.
8 servings=74.5 calories.
With a pie crust at 90 cals a serving total would be= 164.5..
Thanks for posting this recipe! My mother used to make those "impossible" pies that Bisquick came out with. The impossible apple pie and cherry cobbler were awesome and soooo easy. And it always fascinated me how you could just mix everything together and it would come out like a pie or cobbler. Would you mind posting the rest of the nutritional info from the recipe? ie. cals, fat, protein, carbs. You said the cals was 112.
I allow myself up to 120 cals for dessert with dinner every night and I don't worry about protein because I get that from the rest of my diet. But I do keep an eye on the fat...
When I went to Calorie-count.com it shows the following:.

If using eggbeaters instead it would lower the calories a little more. If I added 1 tblsp of Any Whey or Soy flour it would boost the protein some. I figured that one slice at Thanksgiving would be fine but if it fits in pretty close to Dukan Diet deserts then maybe it could be eaten a little more often..
Any and all advice is appreciated. Thanks.....
Before somebody beats me to it, let me add that it's best to stay 100% on the program in the beginning. I did Dukan Diet 100% for over four months before I felt comfortable trying some stuff on my own. I've been on my own now for about three months and I continue to lose weight at the same pace. But I'm doing that only with the help of the re-training I got from NS. Before NS, I would have sat down and ate this whole pie! The greatest benefit I got from Dukan Diet was that it helped me to develope a new normal and a new mindset about food and it helped me to learn about proper portion sizes..
Having said that, I compared the stats you gave to a FEW of the Dukan Diet desserts and it is comparable or better in most ways. I'm sure someone will disagree with me on that, but that's my opinion, for what it's worth....keeping in mind that I'm not on Dukan Diet any more...
Thanks Jo Ann.. I too was on Dukan Diet but for only two months and then due to cost factors started doing it on my own. I am doing very well and read and re-read many of these posts. I thank Christina for some fantastic recipes that have made it so easy. Also I must give credit to Amy Smith and her delicious recipes and Graylady for keeping so many on file. I think it is so important that we are able to celebrate the holidays with guilt free and delicious recipes and Pumpkin Pie is a favourite. I think I will use this one and be very selective with the other dishes...
Exactly. I've also gotten some good recipes from a cookbook I ordered called "The 1200-Calorie-A-Day Menu Cookbook" You can pick any of the recipes on any given day and they always add up to 1200 cals a day. The only thing I don't like about it is that it doesn't give as much nurtritional info as I'd like to have. I think it only tells Cals and fat. But I still like some of the recipes and will keep trying more of them. I never cook any of the fancy breakfast stuff.
Jo Ann....this website has a nice selection of impossible pies. Maybe the ones your Mom made are listed here..
Wow! That's a great site. I saved it as a favorite. But how did you get the nutritional info?..
Go to calorie-count.com. You put in the number of servings and then the ingredients and it will calculate it for you. It must be in actual sizes ie. ounces, tblsp etc. not 1 can etc. It will tell you if there is something it doesn't recognize.
If there is a red flag then that is the item you need to change and then calculate the recipe again. Only put in the ingredients not the how to make it stuff. Hope this helps..
The zucchini and tomato pie looks yummy too...

I'm going to make one of these impossible pumpkin pies but thinking of the amount of Splenda and/or sugar makes my stomach hurt. I use splenda quite a lot but I measure it in tablespoons or just shake some in whatever I'm cooking. A half a cup or more sounds way, way too sweet...
This looks great! I'm the "pie person" at Thanksgiving and didn't want to give up that role..
So I'll make a 'regular' and this one to take to my inlaws!.
I'm 'new' to using eggbeaters. How would I sub that in for the egg and eggwhites?..
1 whole egg = 1/4 cup Egg Beaters.
1 egg white = 2 tbsp Egg Beaters.
So, since you need 1 egg & 2 egg whites, and 4 tbsp = 1/4 cup, that would mean 1/2 cup Egg Beaters. Save a piece for me!!!..
Has anyone else actually baked the Impossible pie yet? I'm still waiting on mine to firm up so that a knife will come out clean, and I've already baked it for about an hour-and-a-half at 360 F. It's still gloopy, though. If I have to wait much longer, I'll miss the pot luck..
Christina's recipe started out a 425 for the first 15 minutes and then moved to 350 for another 50 minutes. I'm wondering if that's what I should have also done with the Impossible pie...
I've made the crustless pumpkin pie...I've always baked at 375 for 1hr and it's always been fine. I'm hoping you didn't add too much of something.....
Hi...I did make it in October for the Canadian Thanksgiving. I followed the directions as I posted them and it was amazing! It took just the 50 minutes to bake. I have no idea why yours wasn't cooking properly..
I am sorry to hear that you had difficulty with it. Mine was delicious and the family loved it...
I double checked all of my quantities, and they all looked fine. I did use the Hodgkins Mill pancake mix instead of Bisquick, though. I'll try baking at 375 next time. Thanks...
Thanks, Judi! (((HUG))) I promised in-law family that I would do a "real".
Pumpkin pie, but I'm making this one, too...
That could be it. I used to make all the impossible pie recipes before Dukan Diet and they all turned out great. And I'm a terrible baker. Sometimes just changing one ingredient makes a difference...
Bisquick has shortening in it. Pancake mix doesn't..
BTW, I pulled mine out of the oven (350 for 45 min) and it's nice and firm. Another thing to take into account is altitude. Here in Belmont, CA we're approx. 700 ft...
I made pumpkin custard using 2% evap milk but it does have sugar & egg...but I am going to treat myself...
I made your recipe and DH and I both really liked it. Came out perfect..
Thanks for sharing the recipe...
You are welcome!.
It is nice to be able to have special desserts without the guilt. I'll be making it again at Christmas too. It is so easy and delicious!..
Wow! It turned out very well and I really loved it! And even some 'non-dieters' had it today and said it was good.
Thanks again for posting the recipe...
I have to say that without a doubt this is a winner. My girls and the man-beast are sold on it. Thank you so much for providing me with a "real" dessert that all of us can enjoy...
