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!
