Updated October 5, 2017

Ingredients

Granola Crust

  • 5 packs (10 bars total) Nature Valley™ Crunchy Granola Bars Oats and Honey
  • 4 Nature Valley™ Soft-Baked Oatmeal Squares Cinnamon Brown Sugar
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 4 teaspoons honey

Pumpkin Cheesecake Filling

  • 12 oz (1 1/2 blocks) cream cheese, softened
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups canned pumpkin puree (NOT pumpkin pie filling)
  • 2/3 cup prepared vanilla pudding
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste or pure vanilla extract
  • 8 oz frozen whipped topping, thawed

Steps

  • 1
    To make the GRANOLA CRUST, line 18 muffin tin cavities with paper liners.
  • 2
    In the bowl of a food processor, combine 4 of the 2-bar packs (8 bars total) of the Oats ‘n Honey Granola Bars with the 4 Cinnamon Brown Sugar Nature Valley™ Soft-Baked Oatmeal Squares. Pulse to small crumbs, then pour into a mixing bowl.
  • 3
    Using a fork, stir in melted butter and honey until well blended. Equally divide the crumbs among the 18 muffin cups. Press into an even layer in the bottom of the muffin cups.
  • 4
    To make the PUMPKIN CHEESECAKE FILLING, beat cream cheese until light and fluffy. Beat in the sugar until well combined.
  • 5
    Add the pumpkin puree, pudding, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon and vanilla, and mix to combine. Add the whipped topping and beat just until incorporated.
  • 6
    Equally divide the cheesecake filling among the 18 muffin cups. Break the remaining 2 granola bars into very small pieces and sprinkle them over the tops of the cheesecakes. Freeze for at least 1 hour.
  • 7
    Use a thin plastic spatula or knife to lift the cheesecakes out of the muffin tins and peel off the papers. Allow the cheesecakes to thaw for 15-25 minutes before serving. Store, tightly sealed, in the refrigerator for up to 5 days or in the freezer for up to a month.
