Extra protein squash pie recipe (keto, paleo, gluten free)

I made my own version of one of my most favorite fall-time recipes, Squash pie!

Extra protein squash pie recipe!

I encountered this about a year or two ago during a paleo potluck and I instantly fell in love with it.

I decided to try a variation of it.

It’s very sweet tasting despite no added sugar or carbs.

That’s why I love pumpkins and squash: Natural sugars!

“Say hello to my little friend!”

Meet Ronaldo. He’s a mustachioed Pumpkin.

He’s going to help with my extra protein squash pie today.

Here’s our ingredients:

  • 2 medium butternut squash, cut in half, seeded
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil (or butter)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1-2 scoops of your favorite protien powder
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoon Pumpkin Pie spice
  • (If you don’t have PPS; 1 teaspoon cinnamon and ¼ teaspoon nutmeg)
  • ½ teaspoon salt

If you want to put it into a crust, that’s very doable. I’d just suggest not using anything store bought! (Unless you like transfats!)

Prepare your squash beforehand or buy pre-cut cubes if they’re available. (Costco has them in fall time.)

Throw everything into the food processor.

Mix it up until it’s nice and creamy and smooth. Like this:

Grease up a oven safe glass or metal container to bake it in. Ronaldo has already done this. Thank you, Ronaldo.

Bake in the oven at 350 Degrees F for about 40-50 minutes. It should begin to develop a skin, but it will still be creamy underneath.

My variation on Elana's Squash pie recipe with extra protein. This can be made with or without a crust, but I encourage you to make your own crust vs. the storebought junk.
Recipe type: Keto paleo gluten free low carb
Cuisine: dessert
Serves: 8
  • 2 medium butternut squash, cut in half, seeded
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil (Or butter)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 scoop of your favorite protein powder
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  1. Slice open the squash, de-seed and cook face-side down at 350f for 40-60 minutes, until soft
  2. Scoop out all flesh, discard skin
  3. (Alternatively, use precut squash cubes from Costco (seasonal))
  4. Put everything into the food processor and blend until nice and smooth. See pictures for details.
  5. Place in about a 9-inch greased tart pan or glass bowl
  6. Bake at 350f for about 40-50 minutes. See pictures.
You can use any protein powder you'd like, but try to match flavors and carbohydrate content for your diet. Don't use a fruity protein flavor with this, obviously.

This is a variation on the Elana’s Squash Pie recipe, which is based on Sally Fallon’s Nourishing Traditions Cookbook.

Both are delicious by themselves, of course!

If you make this, let me know what you think in the comments section!

I’d really appreciate it if you share this with your fellow Keto/Paleo/low carb friends!


Your friend,

Hey, I'm Yossif. I get angry about health and food. I think I know what I'm talking about, but I dunno. Most people can't drop 100 lbs by accident, right? I want to try and helps others get healthy and fit. There's a lot of lies and crappy info out there, I'm trying to shovel it out of the way. Sign up for my newsletter here!


  1. Sounds delicious! Food photography tip–include a picture of a slice of the food; it will look even more appetizing!
