March 14 (3.14) is Pi Day, the annual celebration of the mathematical constant pi (π) — also known as the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter, or 3.14159265359.
For those of us who aren’t math wizards, it’s mainly just an excuse to eat lots of pie… and that’s where I come in! I’m sharing three pie recipes that are a little bit gentler on the blood sugar than ordinary treats. Even better, as single-serving mini pies, they’re already portioned and carb-counted for you. No slicing or fractions required. Because even on a day devoted to a math concept, it’s nice to not have to calculate your own carbs.
While these tasty morsels aren’t overloaded with carbohydrates, sometimes the more important factor in a treat for our family is to be able to accurately count the carbohydrates so that our bolus can be as accurate as possible. The bite-size servings and use of labeled ingredients for these little babies help a lot on that front. They’re also so delectable that you’d never imagine how quickly they come together.
This savory pie is another fun option that balances out its flaky, carb-y crust with a more nutritious protein and veggie filling. The fact that they’re prepared in individual carb-counted portions is just icing on the cake pie.
