Mini No-Bake Pumpkin Cheesecakes

Make these healthy no-bake pumpkin cheesecakes for your next party or gathering. These mini cheesecakes can be made ahead of time and are already portioned out, so they're easy to serve. Look for graham cracker crumbs in the baking aisle of major supermarkets, or make your own by pulsing graham crackers in a food processor until fine.

Total Time:
3 hrs


  • ¾ cup graham cracker crumbs (about 5 sheets)

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

  • 1 tablespoon honey

  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted

  • ½ cup nonfat cottage cheese

  • 4 ounces reduced-fat cream cheese, at room temperature

  • ½ cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt

  • ½ cup unseasoned pumpkin puree

  • ¼ cup packed brown sugar

  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Line a 12-cup muffin tin with silicone liners (or use paper liners, then coat with cooking spray).

  2. Mix graham cracker crumbs, oil, honey and butter in a medium bowl. Fill each prepared cup with about 1 tablespoon of the mixture. Pat down with the back of a spoon or clean fingers. Refrigerate for 1 hour.

  3. Meanwhile, combine cottage cheese, cream cheese, yogurt, pumpkin, brown sugar, pumpkin pie spice and vanilla in a food processor; process until smooth, scraping down the sides as needed.

  4. Divide the filling evenly among the cups, about 2 tablespoons each, spreading with a spoon or offset spatula to smooth. Freeze for at least 2 hours and up to 2 days. Remove the cheesecakes from the muffin tin; remove the liners and transfer the cheesecakes to a plate or serving tray. Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes before serving.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
