Dave and I have been working so hard getting our new gym open. We are the construction company, and the demo and upfitting of the new space has been quite exhausting. So far we have removed 27 mirrors from the walls, patched all the holes from those mirrors, and have primed the about half the walls for paint. Did I mention that this space is about 7600 sq ft? Yeah, we have been busy the past 4 days!
Every night as we leave the gym, I look at Dave and say “I want something sweet”. And now that it’s September, those cravings are all things pumpkin! Yup, I have about 10 cans of organic pumpkin in the pantry and I will likely have to do a big order from Vitacaost again before October. I can’t help it! With recipes like these individual crustless chocolate chip pumpkin pies, it’s way to easy to eat all the pumpkin all the time.
I have been making that recipe for 4+ years and wanted to take it to the next level. I blame my constant craving for chocolate chips cookies for this recent version. Speaking of cookies, be sure to check out this pumpkin chocolate chip cookies recipe, oh my god!

I am not crazy about the crust in pumpkin pie, it’s so hard to get it right and who has time to fuss over crust in the middle of the week! Not me! So these crustless versions are perfect for my mid-week cravings!
Tips for making individual crustless pumpkin pie
What I’ve learned over the years is that this recipe comes out much better if you can refrigerate your can of pumpkin before making the recipe. For whatever reason this helps the texture of the pumpkin pies, so try it out! Also, if you notice that there is any water on the top of your can from the pumpkin puree, drain that off before you use the pumpkin in this recipe.
I wanted to up the protein content of this recipe so I used collagen peptides for added protein. Have you tried collagen peptides before? I love adding them to my coffee in the morning and I’ve began adding them to baked goods to increase the protein without adding any additional flavors or textures. The collagen peptides are tasteless and dissolve completely, and will be undetectable in the final product.
If you haven’t tried collagen peptides before, I recommend that you find a brand from pasture raised grass fed cows. Vital proteins (affiliate link) is a great brand! Collagen peptides are a great source of protein, and are also great for the skin, hair and nails.
These individual crustless chocolate chip pumpkin pies are perfect for a week night indulgence or and afternoon snack. They aren’t very calorie dense but have all the flavors I crave in the cool fall months. If you love the pumpkin part of pumpkin pie, you are going to go crazy for these little individual chocolate chip pumpkin pies! Modify the add in and toppings as you see fit. I keep them allergy friendly for Dave but pecans or walnuts would also be amazing on these!
