You didn’t think I forgot about my Quest bars, did you? This Quest Double Chocolate Pumpkin Pie is as delicious as it is simple! And I had a feeling it would be. I couldn’t wait to finish the photo shoot so I could eat the two!

The recipe uses a Double Chocolate Chunk Quest Bar. And as I did with my Coconut Pineapple Protein Tartlets, I cut the bar in half and warmed it up in two large silicone muffin cups. Once warm, I pressed the bar into the cup to make a pie shell, and baked it some more. The pumpkin filling is a simple mix of pumpkin, vanilla whey, and some pumpkin spice. Easy!

Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 325F (163C).
  2. Cut the Quest bar in half, and place each piece in a large silicone muffin cup.
  3. Bake for about 6 minutes, until they puff up.
  4. Meanwhile, mix the pumpkin, whey, and spice to make the pumpkin filling.
  5. Remove muffin cups from the oven, and let cool a minute.
  6. Press the quest pieces into the cups, letting the sides come up higher than the centers.
  7. Bake for about 6 minutes more. They may puff up a bit; that's ok. Just press them down again.
  8. Let crusts cool a few minutes, then remove from silicone and fill with pumpkin filling.
  9. Drizzle with raw chocolate, if desired.
  10. Enjoy! And store in the refrigerator.
Notes
A note about substitutions: any vanilla protein powder would work in the filling, but whey or casein would probably be the most smooth.
