What You'll Need
- 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
- 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/3 cup canola oil
- 2 tablespoons fat-free milk, cold
- 3/4 cup liquid egg substitute
- 2 tablespoons SPLENDA sugar substitute
- 1 cup sugar-free maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup margarine, light

What to Do
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a 9-inch pie plate, combine whole wheat, all-purpose flour, and salt. In a small bowl, whisk together the oil and milk and pour over the flour mixture. Using a fork, mix until completely moistened. Using your fingers, press the dough evenly over the bottom and up the sides of the plate.
