Pumpkin Protein Cheesecake Recipe

Ingredients: Pumpkin Protein Cheesecake Recipe

Pumpkin Cake

  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 2 scoops (48g) Ascent Vanilla Whey Protein Powder
  • 1/2 cup Truvia baking blend (Stevia + sugar mixture)*
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ¼ tbsp. baking powder
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup preferred milk
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1/2 tbsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp. dark molasses

Cream Cheese Filling

  • 8 oz. reduced fat cream cheese, softened
  • 1 tbsp. Truvia (or 2 tbsp. regular granulated sugar)
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract


*Can substitute for 3/4 cup regular granulated white sugar, or 1/4 cup Splenda/sugar free sweetener and 1/3 cup granulated white sugar.
**If you don’t have a jumbo muffin pan or the pumpkin cake pan like I had, you can use a standard 12 spot muffin tin. Just adjust amounts to evenly divide it into 12 instead of 6, and bake slightly less time since they are smaller.

Instructions: Pumpkin Protein Cheesecake Recipe

  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Add flour, protein powder, sweetener, cinnamon salt, and baking powder to a large bowl. Mix.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together pumpkin puree, milk, eggs, melted coconut oil, vanilla extract and molasses.
  • Combine wet and dry ingredients. Gently stir together until a smooth batter forms.
  • Mix all cream cheese filling ingredients in a bowl.
  • Spray either a jumbo muffin pan with nonstick spray. Spoon pumpkin cake batter into each spot until about 1/3 full.
  • Add about 1 1/2 to 2 tbsp. of cream cheese filling to each.
    • Cover with remaining batter.
  • Bake for 25 minutes, or until a knife comes out clean.
    • Check at 20 minutes to make sure you don’t over bake since cooking times can vary from oven to oven.
