No Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake

Here's the Dish

This pumpkin cheesecake recipe is unique in quite a few ways! First off, it doesn’t require any baking, which means less prep time on an already busy ‘baking’ day! Secondly, it has an almond oat crust that is out of this world delicious! The crust is totally ‘clean’, gluten free, and has no butter, but you could also use a store bought graham cracker crust if you are in a pinch! Enjoy!

Method

The estimated total time to make this recipe is 4+ hours.

1

To Make the Pie Crust: Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine the dry ingredients. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir, (or use your hands) to incorporate the wet and dry ingredients. Spray an 8 inch springform pan (or 8 inch pie dish) with cooking spray. Press pie crust evenly into pie dish using hands to distribute evenly. Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and let cool to room temperature. (OR you could use a pre made graham cracker crust if you are in a pinch!)

2

To Make the Filling:In a medium bowl, beat the cream cheese and pumpkin together. Add in spices and sweetener and continue to mix until combined. Gently fold in whipped topping. Once crust is completely cooled, spread cheesecake mixture evenly over crust. Chill in the refrigerator at least 4 hours, or overnight to let it set.

3

If you used a springform pan, run a knife gently between the pan and the cheesecake, and remove outer pan just before serving. Top with additional whipped topping and pecans if desired!

Could you use fat free cream cheese or 1 fat free pack and 1 1/3 fat pack?

I would recommend trying canned sweet potato puree if you don’t like pumpkin — it’s very similar in color/texture/fiber/autumn taste.

What brand of baking stevia do you use. I have never used it and am not sure what to look for. Thanks!

When you say use 1 cup of sweetener that measures like sugar, does this mean you could use 1 cup of actual sugar? Thank you!

Is there anything i can add (maybe an egg) to help the filling stay together and be more firm?

I used this crust for a chocolate mousse pie (not the cheesecake here) and I think I am going to figure out a way to make the crust dough into mini almond cookies next time! So tasty and hearty with the almonds.

If I don’t have almond flour, would you suggest using whole wheat flour or more oat flour?

What does the #/# in the WWP+ mean? Is one the old points and the other the new points plus? Or does one count fruits/veggies and one doesn’t? I have seen it on a few recipes now and I cannot seem to figure out what it means when there are two different numbers.

Used mini graham cracker crusts from the store but instead used fat free cream cheese and fat free cool whip and they turned out delicious :) a little soft but would definitely make again!!!

Would honey or agave work as the sweetener?
