I followed this recipe to make crustless pumpkin pie. Its taste is a combination between pumpkin pie and cheesecake.
Even though it is already low in calories and carbohydrates and therefore suitable for diabetics, you can still replace sugar with sugar substitute.

How did it turned out for you using oat flour?
I think I would use almond flour or gluten free bisquik to make it gluten free.

Take out every 10 min stir, evenly in pan ,back in and do… Read more »
