Introduction

This recipe is perfect for autumn as it utilizes the most fall flavor of all: Pumpkin & Spice! No need for lengthy bake times, butter, or cream cheese – these cheesecake jars have 8g protein each and are the perfect dessert in these cooler months.

Ingredients

  • ¾ cup Graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 Tbsp. + 1 tsp. Coconut oil, melted
  • 2 containers of 5.3 oz. Pumpkin & Spice Muuna cottage cheese
  • ¼ cup Pumpkin puree
  • 1 Tbsp. Pure maple syrup
  • 1 cup Toasted pecans, chopped

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs with melted coconut oil and stir with a fork until consistency is that of damp sand.
  2. Add 1 Tbsp. of the graham cracker mixture into six 4 oz. glass jars (or other lidded containers) and press down to form a crust.
  3. Pour cottage cheese, pumpkin puree, and maple syrup into a food processor and pulse until smooth (about 3 minutes), scraping the sides of the bowl with a spatula after each minute.
  4. Spoon 3 Tbsp. of the cottage cheese mixture into each jar.
  5. Tap each jar on a countertop or table covered with a soft towel to allow cottage cheese mixture to settle.
  6. Screw lids on the jars and refrigerate for at least an hour.
  7. Top each with 1 tsp. chopped pecans and enjoy immediately.
