Low Fat Pumpkin Cheesecake

img_0915

Pumpkin is it’s own season am I right? Just because fall is over doesn’t mean you need to leave pumpkin behind. It’s an excellent flavor to mix with cinnamon, chocolate, caramel, or stand alone by itself! Here, I use it to add that extra bit of special to this cheesecake. Rich, dense, and absolutely delicious. This makes for a perfect macro cap, healthy dessert option, or with the macro nutrient split you could even use this as a pre or post workout snack! Who doesn’t want cheesecake gains!? I hope you enjoy! Now, let’s get baking!

  6. Mix till just incorporated. 
  7. Pour into a sprayed spring form pan. Tap on the counter a few times to get rid of excess air pockets. 
  8. Bake for roughly 50-60 minutes until cheesecake is set, and has just a small wiggle in it. 
  9. Remove from oven and place on a cooling rack for at least 1 hour. 
  10. Place cheesecake in the fridge to finish setting.
    Optional Crust – I wasnt extremely happy with this crust, yet the cheesecake turned out fantastic, so I would say save the extra cals and make it crust less! 
    -Crust:
    150g Cinnamon Frosted Flakes, 1oz @waldenfarmsinternational maple, 50g lite butter.
    Smash cereal, combine with melted butter/syrup. Line a prepared baking dish and bake at 350 for 8-10 min. Then pour your cheesecake on top. Then follow from Step 8 on.
