This Pumpkin Spice Cheesecake (AIP/Paleo) is gluten free, dairy free, and contains no processed sugar. All the taste and texture without inflammatory ingredients!Jump to Recipe
I have been a cheesecake lover from a young age. In my teen years, I would always ask for a Sarah Lee cherry cheesecake for my birthday instead of a cake! Recently, I had been trying to just make some pumpkin collagen bars, but the more I worked with it, the more I realized that what I was actually making was pumpkin spice cheesecake, AIP style! 😀
And the angels sang.
I quickly set about making a crumbly crust, made a few tweaks, chilled it in the fridge, and voilà!
Make your treats count
For those of us eating in a Paleo style for healing, treats are meant to be just that – treats! They are not meant to be a big part of our diet. My thinking is that if we are going to treat, we can treat responsibly! Pumpkin is good for you, and I’ve included an optional addition of collagen for gut health. Why not make your treat count?
You know how I love to pretty things up… The garnish I used in this picture is a sprinkling of my Pumpkin Spice Granola, which is fully AIP. If you have made some successful reintroductions, you might try some chopped pecans, and maybe a drizzle of caramel… 🤤
You will need a couple of pieces of equipment to make this recipe. One is a food processor. You’ll need this to make both the crumble crust, and the filling itself.
The other thing you’ll need is a 9″ springform pan. That’s the special pan that allows you to lift off the ring that forms the sides, but leaves the bottom. They are awesome.
Enjoy, my friends. And remember, treat responsibly!
As always, I’m wishing you great love and deep healing.
P.S. There are some reeeaaaaallly exciting things coming, including my very first solo mini e-cookbook, and my monthly Wendi-zine! Keep an eye out for it! 👀
