To make these little treats, simply preheat your oven to 350 degrees and line a dozen mini muffin tins with paper liners. In a bowl, combine some crushed gingersnap cookies with melted coconut oil and water to form a crumbly crust. Press one teaspoon of the crust mixture into each of the muffin tins, setting it aside while you prepare the pumpkin cheesecake filling.
To make the pumpkin cheesecake filling, add low-fat cream cheese, nonfat plain Greek yogurt, canned pumpkin, egg, vanilla extract, pumpkin pie spice, sea salt and liquid stevia to a blender or food processor. Puree until smooth, then evenly divide the pumpkin cheesecake mixture among the 12 lined muffin tins.
Finally, bake your mini pumpkin cheesecake bites for 15 minutes, until they are firm around the edges yet soft in the center. Let them cool at room temperature for about an hour before refrigerating them for at least two hours.
When you’re ready to serve these tasty fall treats, just pop them out of their muffin tins and enjoy. And there you have it – deliciously creamy and perfectly spiced mini pumpkin cheesecake bites that are perfect for fall!
