Ingredients:

  • Crust
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup medjool dates, packed
  • 2 Tbsp. vanilla unsweetened almond milk
  • Cream Cheese Filling
  • 4 ounces Neufchatel cheese, softened to room temperature
  • 8-10 drop stevia or 1-2 packets non-caloric sweetener
  • 2 Tbsp. egg whites
  • ½ tsp. vanilla bean paste or extract
  • Pumpkin Filling
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 Tbsp. sugar-free maple syrup
  • 3 Tbsp. egg whites
  • 2 Tbsp. vanilla unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Spray a mini muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray. If desired, criss-cross 2 small strips of parchment paper (about 1 inch thick and 4 inches long) in the bottom of each muffin cup to assist with removal of the pies after baking.
  3. Combine crust ingredients in a food processor. Process until dough-like consistency is achieved (mixture should stick together when pressed). Evenly distribute crust into 16 mini muffin cups (~1 tbsp).
  4. To make the cream cheese filling, beat together cream cheese, sweetener, egg whites and vanilla in a small bowl. Spoon ~1 tablespoon of the cream cheese filling into each muffin cup.
  5. To make the pumpkin filling, beat together pumpkin puree, maple syrup, egg whites, almond milk and pumpkin pie spice in a small bowl. Spoon ~1 tablespoon of the pumpkin filling into each muffin cup, creating a second layer.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove and cool completely before removing from muffin cups.
