Are you one of those people who craves pumpkin spice all year long? Get your PSL fix whenever the craving hits with bite-sized Pumpkin Spice Latte Cheesecake Bites. These are great for Halloween parties, tailgates or even to take to the pumpkin patch!
Everyone gets so excited for the fall drinks to arrive at the local coffee shops, so I knew that I wanted to make a little cheesecake treat that had those flavors. I used this pumpkin Oreo cheesecake as my base for the bites, and then added a homemade coffee whipped cream and a coffee bean to make them look and taste cute. Greek yogurt also adds a little extra protein too, so don’t feel guilty about going in for seconds.
This batch makes 24 mini bites. And trust me, those will not last long at all. Something about the little size makes you think you can pop a few of them at a time!

Can you substitute items in the recipe for things that are gluten free?
Hi Brandi! To make the recipe gluten-free, you can substitute the flour for all-in-one gluten-free flour and use gluten-free graham crackers instead of vanilla wafers. We hope you enjoy this recipe!
