Ingredient Tips and Substitution
One of my favorite things about fall is all the delicious seasonal recipes that start making their rounds. These Caramel pumpkin marble cheesecake bars are one of my favorites. They can be healthy and absolutely delicious. And this year, I’m sharing my tips for making them even better.
For the healthy version, firstly, use whole wheat graham crackers in place of regular graham crackers, the whole wheat graham crackers will give the bars a slight nutty flavor that goes perfectly with the pumpkin and caramel. Secondly, use low-fat cream cheese and Greek yogurt when making the filling. Thirdly, for the pumpkin puree, you can either make your own or buy a healthy, organic variety. Lastly, if you’re looking for an extra boost of protein, you can also add a scoop of whey protein powder to the batter.
As far as substitutions go, you can use coconut milk, almond milk, oat milk, cashew milk, etc. in place of regular milk, and coconut oil instead of butter. For the caramel, use a healthy alternative like honey or agave nectar. I also like to add a teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice to really bring out the flavors of fall. And if you’re not a fan of pumpkin, you can always substitute another type of squash or even sweet potato.
So whatever your dietary preferences, there’s a way to make these caramel pumpkin marble cheesecake bars work for you. And trust me, they’re worth it. So go ahead and give them a try!
With these tips, you can enjoy Caramel Pumpkin Marbled Cheesecake Bars that are healthy and delicious!

- Serve and enjoy with family and friends!
PRO TIP!Bring the eggs and cream cheese to room temperature. Line the brownie pan with parchment paper. Cool completely before cutting. Clean the knife you cut these bars in between slicing for clean cuts. Omit cinnamon if using a spice cake mix. If you're not fond of frosting try using a dollop of whipped cream on top (the bars taste like pumpkin pie)
Easy cut-to-size wax paper cut into squares for stacking and no mess to clean. Store in a large covered rectangular storage container in the refrigerator for any leftovers. We prefer these cheesecake bars cold, but you can serve them at room temperature also, These do freeze for up to 3 months very well. To enjoy them, defrost them in the refrigerator overnight.
POSSIBLE ADDITIONSIf you love chocolate chips, coconut or nuts, add more to your batter. Additional drizzled frosting on top will make them look super special for the Holiday table, but it does add additional sweetness. You can decide how your family loves pumpkin cheesecake bars by just adding the additions to just one side and making half plain and half with those previous suggestions.
