Pumpkin Season is here, once again!
It’s Fall again but you won’t feel it if you step outside in NY. Instead of the usual crisp air and crunchy leaves, we’re experiencing temperatures in the high 80’s! Still, you can’t help but try to be seasonal when you walk into grocery stores and their festive squash displays greet you. Plus, when isn’t it the season for dessert?
We picked up a few cans of pumpkin puree and set out to create a few holiday recipes our readers are sure to love. First up, a simple recipe for low carb & sugar-free Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars with cream cheese frosting that’ll blow your friends and family away. They’re appropriate for school bake sales, Halloween, an after-dinner family treat or as a Thanksgiving dessert.
Our favorite part of most desserts is the crust. We don’t know what it is, but crustless pies just don’t do it for us. That’s why whenever we see a chance to add a crust to something – we do! For this dessert, we stick to our tried and true formula of nuts and an oil. We chose pecans (since they go so well with pumpkin) and coconut oil, since it was so unseasonably warm, it was still in its liquid state. Make sure to bake your low carb crusts a bit before pouring in any kind of batter to help it become crisp and, well, crusty!
You can also choose how you’d like to frost these bars. We spread a thin layer of our cream cheese frosting over the entire dessert once it cooled in the fridge. You can also opt to cut them into their 12 servings and then pipe on or add a dollop of frosting, followed by a sprinkle of cinnamon and more pecans.
Here’s to a classic Fall inspired dessert and to making more! We hope you enjoy. 🙂
