Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars
How did that happen? One minute I can’t get enough of the air conditioning and then next we are full on into the Fall season. Truth be told it’s still warm here, but these Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars needed to hit the page.
With just the right amount of pumpkin spice using my DIY Pumpkin Spice Mix I was able to marry the perfect blend of cream cheesecake with our beloved cinnamon pumpkin.
These two flavors go so well together, a delightful treat and pretty easy to make. Just using a 9×9 pan and some parchment paper I was able to whip these Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars together after work one day.
I cut these little guys into small bites to keep the carb count down. I also went crustless….if you can believe it they are zero carbs for just one. But don’t be fooled. If you eat more than one or three your carb count will go up. The nutrition calculator sets these bars at zero carbs due to rounding, so don’t think you can eat as many as you want.
DIY Pumpkin Pie Spice
At the holiday time you may find Pumpkin Pie Spice at your local super market, but don’t fret if you can not find it pre made. It’s easy to whip together with everything in your spice rack.
Muffin cups or Ramekins
don’t feel like you have to make these Pumpkin Cheesecake bars in a 9×9 pan. You are perfectly good if you want to line 24 mini muffin cups with parchment paper cups and bake that way. You will have to adjust your time…so just keep an eye on that.
Like wise if you want to bake these in 4oz ramekins you could probably make 12 small Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars in the individual ramekins. Again, I am not sure on the oven time, but they would definitely work as a great holiday dessert.

My Beautycounter Side Gig
I’m a Beautycounter devotee and I truly love this company and their products, hence my Beautycounter Side Gig. I love their mission, their products and their affordable pricing for high-quality, safer products.
I’m super careful about what I put into my body by selecting and eating healthy food, so it’s kind of silly I haven’t been more careful about what I put into my body through the skincare products I use. Not anymore.
