I seriously can’t even. My mouth is forever changed. I knew when I made my classic cheesecake bites that they were good, but these pumpkin spice cheesecake bites are AMAZING. I’m also a pumpkin spice lover at heart – #PSL #basic. Like literally, give me EVERYTHING pumpkin spice and I’m a happy girl. I do make pumpkin spice stuff all year around – I’m not about to wait for a couple months a year to have it!

When making this recipe, I used my immersion blender with the whisk attachment. I also used these silicon cupcake baking cups that are game changers as well! I actually use these baking cups inside my kiddo’s lunches too, if you follow me on Instagram!

This recipe creates a dozen cheesecake bites, so you have a dozen times to have a mouth-gasm. You’re welcome.

Pumpkin Spice Cheesecake Bites {Gluten Free + Dairy Free}

Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time25 mins
Total Time35 mins
Servings: 12 Bites

Ingredients

Crust

  • 1 1/4 Cup Almond Flour
  • 1/2 Cup Coconut Sugar
  • 1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/3 Cup Palm Shortening
  • 1/2 Tsp Cinnamon

Filling

  • 3 Eggs
  • 1 Tub Kite Hill Cream Cheese
  • 1/2 Cup Pumpkin
  • 1 Tsp Pumpkin Spice
  • 1/3 Cup Maple Syrup
  • 1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Tbsp Tapioca Flour

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • In a bowl, mix all of the ingredients for the crust. It won't form into a dough, but it should stick together when the mixture is squeezed together.
  • Grease a cupcake pan with coconut oil spray. Fill 1/4 of each cupcake holder with the crust mixture. Press it down hard and even into each cupcake pan, so the crust is compressed together.
  • In another bowl, mix all of the ingredients together for the filling. Once each cupcake holder has crust mixture in it, fill the remaining space with the filling.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes. The cheesecake will still be a little soft when you press in the middle of it when it's done.
  • Let it cool down completely on a cooling rack before indulging!
