Vegan Healthy Pumpkin Cheesecake

If I didn’t tell you the pumpkin cheesecake was vegan, you’d never believe me.  It’s creamy, sweet and tastes like fall itself with all the pumpkin and the cinnamon. The only reason why the cake is not considered raw is because pumpkin puree is a cooked ingredient. Here’s how to make your own pumpkin puree.

We had this cake at a family birthday party for my twins. The next day, was their “real” birthday party with tons of friends and other cake and tons of cupcakes. My goal with this particular cake was “fast, delicious, fall-like” and that goal was fully accomplished.

    In the above recipe you do not mention walnuts. Alas, in the directions it says to pour the pumpkin mixture over the walnuts. Should it be – pour the pumpkin ingredients over the almonds.
    Thanks.
