PUMPKIN SPICE CHEESECAKE (GF)


Yes, I know, it's not Thanksgiving anymore. :-) I was tardy in putting this recipe up on my blog. Squirrel it away for another day.

PUMPKIN SPICE CHEESECAKE
A sweetened whipped topping will probably be the “icing on the cake” so to speak. I sprinkled grated chocolate over the top.

1 ½ cups ground almonds or
Almond flour
¼ cup vanilla whey protein
2 tbsp vital wheat gluten, OR oat flour
4 Splenda packets
1/3 to ½ cup butter, melted

2 tbsp vital wheat gluten, OR oat flour
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp vanilla extract
½ tsp nutmeg
½ tsp pumpkin spice
½ oz grated unsweetened baker’s chocolate (optional)
