What desserts are always present at your family’s gatherings?

In my family, there’s always both Apple Pie and Pumpkin Pie at Thanksgiving, and always, always chocolate pie at Christmas…several, actually. One with nuts, two without 😉

…With plenty of whipped cream for engulfing the whole slice.

I’ve mentioned in past recipe posts that I’m all about embracing traditional family dishes, but have slowly over the years made my way through each and every one of them, adapting the recipes to different dietary needs along the way.

There are multiple people in my family who have to watch their sugar, be mindful of their carb intake, etc. so taking a classic family favorite and turning it into a version everyone could eat was a major win.

And you guys…this pie…is an absolute pleasure!

Crunchy No-Bake Peanut Butter Cookies made with only 4 ingredients! This healthier no-bake cookie recipe is made with puffed rice for the most delectable crunch! Gluten-free, refined sugar-free, dairy-free, AND vegan, these treats are an amazing loveable treat by all!

Do you remember by 6-Ingredient No-Bake Cookies featuring oats, almond butter and cacao powder I posted a few weeks ago? Have you tried them yet??

Those cookies were such a hit that I wanted to revisit the no-bake cookie topic and take a different approach, using puffed rice for the ultimate crunch.

…and my complete adoration for crunchy puffed rice cereal had nothing to do with my decision to make these.

Okay, I fibbed. I’m obsessed. 

Sometimes I eat puffed rice for dinner with blueberries, pumpkin seeds, a scoop of nut butter and coconut milk. Coconut milk, people!  Like a straight-up teenager.

As I was saying…

Puffed rice cereal makes these no-bake peanut butter cookies nice and crunchy and addicting. You can consider them to be a healthier treat recipe, as they are refined sugar-free, gluten-free, and dairy-free – great for those with dietary restrictions and no dietary restrictions alike!

Name your favorite holiday dessert. Annnnnd GO!

I’ll tell you mine if you tell me yours.

Alright, okay, I’ll divulge…Pumpkin cheesecake has always been one of my favorite desserts for not just the holidays but all of fall and winter. I have a long-standing history of making it multiple times during the cold months.

This paleo pumpkin cheesecake essentially combines my No-Bake Vegan Cheesecake  with my Paleo Pumpkin Pie for that timeless creamy sweet cinnamony tangy treat.

Both the pie crust and the filling are prepared using a food processor or blender, and there’s no oven space necessary – a huge win when you’re preparing a big feast and oven real estate is in short supply.

Plus, you can make this recipe far in advance (up to 7 days) and store it in the freezer until your holiday gathering. Just note the cheesecake will take a few hours to thaw, so be sure to work thaw time into your planning process.

The pumpkin filling is made using soaked raw cashews (just like a vegan cheesecake), pureed pumpkin, coconut milk, coconut oil, pure maple syrup, fresh ginger, pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon. Blending all these ingredients together results in a silky-smooth, thick and creamy filling that tastes just like Thanksgiving should.

While I love using raw nuts (pecans and walnuts are my favorite) and dates for the crust, you can go with your favorite gluten-free or grain-free pie crust. I’m super into the nutty texture of the crust and think it lends amazing flavor to the pie.
