Yield: 8 slices
For crust:
  • ¼ cup almond meal or white whole wheat flour
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon pure pumpkin puree
  • 2 tablespoon sugar or erythritol OR 2 packets stevia
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pinch salt
For filling:
  • 3-4 tablespoons almond milk
  • 2 cups 0% Greek yogurt
  • 1 (15 ounce) can pure pumpkin puree (remaining from the tablespoon used in the crust)
  • ½ cup sugar or erythritol OR 8 packets stevia
  • 2 eggs OR 1 tablespoon Ener-g egg replacer mixed with ¼ cup water
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon corn or tapioca starch
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
For chocolate drizzle:
  • ½ ounce dark chocolate, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons almond milk
For crust:
  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Grease an 8-inch springform pan and set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine all the ingredients for the crust except the almond milk and stir until completely incorporated. Stir in the almond milk one tablespoon at a time until the consistency of the mixture resembles cake batter. Pour into the prepared springform pan and bake in the oven at 350ºF for 15-18 minutes, until firm and slightly golden. Set aside and let cool.
For filling:
  1. Meanwhile, combine all the ingredients for the filling in a food processor and process until smooth. Pour into the prepared crust and bake in the oven at 350ºF for 50-60 minutes. The cake will be a little jiggly in the middle, but should definitely have a "done" look to it. Let it chill in the fridge for at least 2-3 hours. After the cake has chilled, make sure to run a knife completely around the edge before releasing the springform.
For drizzle:
  1. In a small microwave-safe bowl, combine the dark chocolate and almond milk. Microwave for a minutes and 30 seconds, stir, and continue to microwave in 15 second intervals until thickened. Drizzle artfully over the chilled cake. Cut into slices and devour.
For a vegan version, use vegan-friendly yogurt.
