Just posted the recipe:
The Primal Junk Foodie: PJF Pilgrim Pumpkin Pie
I don't understand what you mean when you say "the sugar bakes off". If that were true, wouldn't the sugar bake off of anything cooked in the oven; cookies, cakes, etc?
Cuz it tastes super sweet before it goes into the oven, but the sugar bakes off and it comes out way more mellow. It bakes out. The sugar goes Poof! I don't know how to explain it. I picked it up from food network or something. I always add more sugar to puddings and stuff than I think they need, cuz then it will come out just right, rather than underwhelming.

Because it does not bake off. That's like saying when you bake garlic it bakes off because it tastes more mellow. When you boil syrup it concentrates, and eventually carmelizes, but that's just removing water - all of the stuff that is bad for you in sugar sources is still there.
Many of your recipes look delicious because they're full of sugar. A cup and a half of syrup and a tablespoon of molasses? A little is fine for flavor and a touch of sweetness but there's no way that's healthy. Everything in moderation, of course; no one's going to sit there and eat the whole thing. But. I wouldn't qualify it as a guilt-free alternative.

To be fair Dr. BB, some of us struggle with sweets right in front of us and could eat a whole pumpkin pie given the chance.
