INGREDIENTS
  • 6 sheets of cinnamon graham cracker crumbs or 2 cups of cinnamon cookies
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar or coconut sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup LIBBY'S® 100% Pure Pumpkin
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice

  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened not melted

MAKE IT
Step 1
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 8X8 baking pan with parchment paper (leave an overhang to be able to pull out these bars easily) and set aside.
Step 2
In the bowl of a food processor, combine the graham crackers or cookies and 1/4 cup brown sugar, along with the butter. Pulse until a super fine consistency appears. Press evenly into the bottom of the pan. Bake for 8 minutes, remove, and cool.
Step 3
In another bowl, combine the room temperature cream cheese, granulated sugar, salt, and vanilla. Beat with hand mixer until completely smooth and creamy. Add in the eggs one at a time, mixing between each one.
Step 4
Pour half of the mixture on top of the crust. Add pumpkin, cinnamon, and 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice to the remaining cheesecake mixture and stir until completely combined.
Step 5
Pour the pumpkin layer on top of the first layer. Bake for 30 minutes.
Step 6
Stir together the 1/2 cup brown sugar, flour, oats, and 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice. Cut the 2 tablespoons butter into small cubes. Add in the butter and mix together with a folk to get that “crumble” texture. Sprinkle this streusel topping evenly over the pumpkin cheesecake layer.
Step 7
Place in the oven and bake for another 25 minutes.
Step 8
Turn the oven off and let the bars cool in the oven for about an hour. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours more before cutting. Enjoy!
