Ingredients

Cake Slice

  • 1 large egg
  • ½ cup light brown sugar , packed
  • 1/3 cup natural sweetener/or sugar of choice
  • 1 cup pure pumpkin puree , canned or homemade (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 1/4 cup oil (cooking oil or melted coconut oil)
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • ½ tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups plain flour (I used light spelt flour, but plain or all purpose flour(s) are fine)
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt
  • ¼ cup white chocolate chips

Cheesecake

  • 1 x 250g | 8.8oz packet low fat/fat free cream cheese , at room temp
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 4 tablespoons natural sweetener/sugar of choice

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 180c | 350F. Grease a 9x11-inch baking pan with cooking spray; line with baking/parchment paper (to remove cake slices easier) and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk the egg, brown sugar, sweetener/sugar, pumpkin, oil, honey and vanilla until smooth and creamy.
  • Add the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt, and stir until just combined (don't over-beat.)
  • Fold through chocolate chips, set aside and make the cheesecake layer

Cheesecake

  • Combine cream cheese, flour, cinnamon and sweetener/sugar in a medium sized bowl, and beat until smooth.

Assemble:

  • Pour the cake batter into prepared pan and evenly smooth the top lightly with a spatula.
  • Pour the cheesecake mixture over the top, and using the back of a knife, swirl small amounts of the blondie batter gently into the cheesecake mix until a marble effect is created on the top (not too much because you still want both layers).
  • Bake for about 38 - 45 minutes (depending on your oven), or until done. A toothpick inserted in the center should come out mostly clean/slightly dirty, with a few moist crumbs BUT no batter. Allow cake to cool in pan for at least 30 minutes before slicing and serving.

Notes

Storage: Bars should be stored in an airtight container, or on a tray/plate covered with plastic wrap at room temperature for about 3 days, or in the freezer for up to 6 months.
