Now that we have gathered all the ingredients we need, it is time to get started on the delicious Vegan Gluten Free Sugar Free Pumpkin Cheesecake . Don your apron, fix yourself a cup of tea, and get ready for some delightful cooking in the kitchen!

Step 1: Preheat Your Oven

Before starting with the recipe, preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C).

Step 2: Prepare The Crust

In a food processor, process pecans until they are coarsely ground. Combine with sorghum flour, coconut oil, and 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt. Mix all ingredients until the pecans are fully coated.

Spread the crust mixture evenly into an 8-inch pie dish or springform pan.

Place it on a baking sheet then put it into the oven and bake for around 10 minutes or until lightly browned.

Remove from oven and let cool while you get started on your cheesecake filling.

Step 3: Make The Cheesecake Filling

In a blender or food processor, blend soaked cashews, pumpkin puree, maple syrup, water, fresh lemon juice, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt until it is smooth and creamy.

Pour the fillings into the cooled crust instead of the baked crust a smaller bowl lined with plastic wrap that overhangs on every side. Tap it lightly to let air bubbles escape from the fillings.

Place in refrigerator for at least 3 hours or overnight, giving it time to set.

Step 4: Assemble & Serve

Once cheesecake is chilled, prepare toppings like whipped cream or caramel sauce or leave plain; gently remove cheesecake from mold then transfer to a serving platter.

This pumpkin cheesecake is a perfect dessert that can be served all year round. It’s delicious on its own or with some additional toppings that can really make it shine.

When serving the pumpkin cheesecake, you might want to add a dollop of vegan whipped cream or coconut whipped cream to give it an extra layer of flavor and creaminess. Adding some pecans on top will also heighten the texture and taste.

Pairing this vegan gluten-free pumpkin cheesecake with a cup of hot tea or coffee is also a great choice. The warm and cozy flavor of the pumpkin spice enhances the spices in your drink, creating a perfect match.

For those bold enough to add complementary flavors to this rich treat, I recommend trying a fruity jam. A tangy raspberry jam drizzled over the pumpkin cheesecake adds an unexpected tartness that brilliantly complements its sweet pumpkin flavor.

This pie also pairs well with a vanilla or caramel ice cream, which balances out the richness of the cheesecake beautifully.

No matter how you choose to serve this pumpkin cheesecake, I am sure that it will be an instant hit among your family and friends. Designed to impress, it works both as a splendid finale for your festive dinner or as comfort food on an autumn night.

After I’ve made this delicious vegan gluten-free sugar-free pumpkin cheesecake recipe, I sometimes find myself with leftovers; especially when I’m cooking for a small crowd. To make the most of these great leftovers, I have some helpful tips on making ahead, storing, and reheating this fantastic dessert.

Firstly, if you’re looking to make-ahead your cheesecake, you can store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to three days or freeze it for up to one month. Before freezing, ensure that the cheesecake has cooled down completely. Additionally, wrap it around tightly using either plastic wrap or aluminum foil before storing it inside a freezer bag.

Secondly, when it comes to reheating your pumpkin cheesecake, move it from the freezer to the fridge and allow it to thaw overnight. Once defrosted completely, preheat your oven and place your cheesecake inside. Bake it for about 10-15 minutes at 325°F until its edges become slightly golden brown.

Lastly, when serving your leftover pumpkin cheesecake again after refrigerating it, there are several tips to consider. Make sure that you slice through evenly and avoid slicing it when completely cold since it tends to crack more easily. One of my personal favorite ways to serve leftover pumpkin cheesecake is by adding whipped cream or serving with berries on top.

Following these guidelines will give you tasty results every time with no wasted leftovers.

Ah, perfect results! I know we all want them when we are cooking. Sometimes they can be tricky to achieve though. Fear not, my lovelies! Here are some tips for perfecting the vegan gluten-free sugar-free pumpkin cheesecake recipe.

Firstly, ensure that you do not over-bake the cheesecake. Bake it for 45 minutes, then turn off the oven and let the cheesecake cool inside for another 10 minutes. This allows it to set perfectly without overcooking.

Secondly, use creamy and smooth coconut milk for the filling. The creamier the milk, the silkier the cake will be.

Thirdly, serve the cheesecake cold. The flavors stand out when chilled, and it has a better texture too.

Fourthly, soak your cashews overnight or at least for 6 hours before making the cheesecake. This is important as it helps blend them well to create a silky smooth consistency.

Fifthly, for a thicker cheesecake layer, use an 8-inch baking pan instead of a larger one.

Sixthly: add extra cinnamon and ginger. These spices give the cake an extra kick of flavor!

Seventhly, decorate with toasted pecans before serving. It adds a nice crunch, and pecans pair very well with pumpkins.

Lastly, ensure that your arrowroot powder is fresh as it can make a difference in texture if it’s old.

Calories 296.2 kcal



  • 1 cup superfine sorghum flour
  • 1/2 cup arrowroot
  • 1/2 cup pecans, finely ground
  • 1 -2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt (link)
  • 4 tablespoons coconut oil (room temp)
  • 5 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup


  • 1/2 cup millet
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup cooked mashed sugar pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup raw cashews
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup or 1/2 cup agave nectar
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg


  • Start by cooking the millet. Rinse millet in a fine mesh strainer under running water for a minute. Then place millet and the 2 cups of water into a small pot, cover, and bring to a boil. Turn heat to low and cook for about 45 minutes. Remove from heat.
  • To make the crust, preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line your spring form pan with parchment paper. (Trace the bottom of the pan onto the paper to form the size circle you need, then cut with a scissors).
  • In a medium mixing bowl whisk together the sorghum flour, arrowroot, ground pecans, cinnamon, and sea salt. Add coconut oil and cut in with your fingers or a pastry cutter. Then add water and maple syrup. Quickly mix dough with a fork. Form into a ball. Press dough evenly into bottom of spring form pan.
  • Bake for about 15 minutes. Let cool completely.
  • To make the filling, place the pumpkin, cashews, maple syrup, lemon juice, and spices into a high powered blender. I use my Vita-Mix. Blend until smooth and creamy. Then add the cooked millet and blend again, scraping sides down as needed. Blend until very smooth. Pour filling into cooled crust. Spread the top if needed.
  • Let cheesecake set at room temp for about an hour then cover and transfer to the fridge until completely set, at least 3 hours or overnight. Remove cheescake from spring form pan and slide off onto a platter for serving.
