What You’ll Need:

Almonds: You will need almonds to make the pie crust. I used raw, unsalted almonds for this recipe.

Dates: Dates are the second ingredient used to make the pie crust. They help the pie crust stick together and also add a sweet flavor. I recommend soaking the dates before to help them blend easier.

Vegan Cream Cheese: You will need vegan cream cheese to make the cheesecake filling.

Pumpkin Puree: You will need pumpkin puree to make the pumpkin cheesecake filling. Be sure to use pumpkin puree and not pumpkin pie filling.

Coconut Sugar: Coconut sugar is the sweetener used in this recipe.

Spices: You will need cinnamon, nutmeg, and pumpkin pie spices to flavor the pumpkin cheesecake filling.

How to Make Pumpkin Cheesecakes:

  1. Remove pits from dates. To make the crust, place dates and almonds into a food processor. Blend until fully mixed and the mixture sticks together. You may need to add a tbsp of water and re-blend if the mixture is dry and not sticking together.
  2. Divide crust evenly between 12 muffin tins. Press the crust down into each muffin liner. I used muffin liners for this. It makes it easier to remove the cheesecakes once finished.
  3. To make the cheesecake filling, add cream cheese, pumpkin, coconut sugar, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, and nutmeg to the blender. Blend until smooth. Distribute the cheesecake filling evenly over the 12 muffin tins containing the crust.
  4. Place the cheesecakes in the freezer to set for about 1 hour. Enjoy cheesecake after 1 hour. Store the cheesecakes in the freezer and place in the fridge for about 1 hour to thaw before consuming. The pumpkin cheesecakes cannot be stored in the fridge. If they are stored in the fridge, the pumpkin pie filling will turn liquid.
