Ditch the store-bought candy this Halloween and enjoy these festive pumpkin cheesecakes instead, complete with a chewy brownie crust. They’re a treat that adults and kids will love – without any spooky artificial flavors or colors! 

It’s easy to be tempted by all of the candy in store aisles during the trick-or-treat season. But with these festive mini chocolate and pumpkin cheesecakes, you can indulge guilt-free! They are dairy-free with no processed sugar. Just the natural sweetness of pure maple syrup. 

Chocolate Fix 

The fudgy brownie layer is egg-free and made with just four ingredients. Almond flour provides the base while raw cacao powder adds rich dark chocolate flavor and antioxidants. Pure maple syrup sweetens, bringing the chocolate flavor to life and adding moisture. Coconut oil helps keep the brownie crust firm with the added bonus of healthy fats.

Dairy-Free Goodness

The pumpkin flavor in these cheesecakes creates a festive flavor and look that is perfect for Autumn parties. To create the pumpkin cheesecake layer without dairy, raw cashews are soaked overnight before blending until smooth with coconut milk. This helps to soften the cashews for easy blending. Pumpkin purée is then added along with pumpkin spice and a hint of maple syrup. Look for 100% pure pumpkin puree without any extra ingredients.

English Breakfast black tea is added to the pumpkin cheesecake layer for gut-support and antioxidants. While this tea is bold on its own, when paired with pumpkin spice it seamlessly blends with the notes of nutmeg, clove, and cinnamon.

Instead of baking, the cheesecakes are chilled until firm and drizzled with dark chocolate. The chocolate will harden quickly on the cheesecakes creating a candy-like shell.

Note: Because coconut oil will melt if it gets too warm, keep cheesecakes in the refrigerator until serving to keep them firm.
