Pumpkin Protein Cheesecake

6 Slices214 cals

Satisfy those seasonal cravings this season with our delicious Pumpkin Protein Cheesecake! This low carb cheesecake recipe is quick, packed with pumpkin flavor, and easy to make with just a few ingredients!

All you need for this one? A mixing bowl, something to mix your ingredients with, and a cheesecake pan!

Add into your mixing bowl 12 ounces of vanilla Greek yogurt, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon, 1 1/2 teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, 16 ounces of fat free cream cheese, 1/2 cup of your choice sweetener, 2 scoops of a vanilla protein powder, 15 ounces of pumpkin puree, and 2 large whole eggs.

Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice

*Double or triple this recipe as needed and store whatever you have leftover for next time!

  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons Ground Cinnamon
  • 1 Teaspoon Ground Ginger & Nutmeg
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Ground Allspice & Cloves

Mix all of those ingredients together until your pumpkin protein cheesecake mix is smooth. I like using a hand mixer to speed this step up. If you don’t have a hand mixer, here’s a link to the one I’ve been using lately.

Take out your cheesecake pan, line it with some parchment paper, and pour your cheesecake mix into it. I used a 9” pan today and it filled it almost all of the way to the top.

Put pumpkin protein cheesecake into the oven on 325F/162C for around 30-35 minutes.

After 30-35 minutes turn your heat down to 200F/93C and bake it for an additional 50-60 minutes.

Remove your cheesecake from the oven and let it cool long enough for you to comfortably handle the pan.

Wrap your pumpkin protein cheesecake up inside the pan and put it into the fridge for at least a few hours. As it cools it’ll develop even more of a cheesecake texture.

Unwrap your cheesecake and optionally top with some whipped topping and nuts like we did today or anything else you want that’ll fit your macros. Let us know what creative and healthy ways you make this in the comments below!

    Think I could make this without the 1/2 cup sweetener? Or would this affect the thickness of the batter and therefore the end result (maybe it won’t thicken/harden up)?

    Thank you Protein chef! You da man xoxo

    Making mini cheesecakes with this recipe. (Large muffin tins). Would I have to adjust the baking time?

    • Derek Howes on December 1, 2015 at 12:00 am

      Yes, I would key an eye on them.

    I made this last night. The taste was on point, but it came out a soggy (not firm like other protein cheesecakes I’ve made). I even had to keep it in the oven for like 90 minutes at 200 degrees. Any idea what went wrong?

  5. Andrew on December 14, 2013 at 12:00 am

    Looks awesome. Would I be able to sub whole eggs for egg whites?

    • Derek Howes on December 15, 2013 at 12:00 am

      You should be fine doing that although I haven’t tried it so I can’t guarantee it. Let me know if you do!
