Vegan Pumpkin Cheesecake

If you you fall into the category of people who cannot eat everything they lay their eyes on, which seems to be the majority of people now, then the holiday season can be difficult. This is because this season is filled with all sorts of comfort food that is filled with gluten, meat, nuts, and eggs. Most of us can make it through dinner, but dessert can be the worst, especially if you are vegan. Because of this, we made sure to find a delicious dessert that will satisfy all your cravings. It is a vegan pumpkin cheesecake!

Now, imagine finishing your Thanksgiving dinner and having this pumpkin cheesecake just waiting for you to slice into it! It is creamy, rich, subtly spiced, and not too sweet. So, what are you waiting for? It is time to put on your apron and start baking this vegan pumpkin cheesecake!

In all of the cashew cheesecake experimentation I’ve done so far on the blog, I haven’t touched on pumpkin yet. Things had to change!

These pumpkin cheesecakes were the first thing that came to mind when I thought of creating a simple-yet-decadent fall dessert.

I mean, who doesn’t love cheesecake? And pumpkin? And coconut whipped cream?

(If you’re raising your hand at this point, you can just leave.)

This recipe is simple, requiring just 10 ingredients and no special springform pans or gadgets.

If you have a blender, parchment paper (or cupcake liners), and ramekins (or muffin tins), you can master these decadent vegan cheesecakes!

I think you all are going to love these gems. They’re:

Subtly spiced
Not too sweet
& Satisfying

These would make the perfect dessert for holiday parties and fall gatherings. They’re super versatile with the ability to be made in muffin tins for a single-serving size, ramekins for 3-4 small cheesecakes, or a round cake pan (or springform pan) for one large cheesecake to feed a crowd. Top with coconut whipped cream and brown sugar pecans (recipes below) for a finishing touch.

If you try this cheesecake, let us know! Leave a comment, rate it (once you’ve tried it), and take a picture and tag it #minimalistbaker on Instagram! We’d love to see what you come up with. Cheers, friends!
