Velvety Pumpkin Cheesecake Balls with a Cookie Crunch

Pumpkin cheesecake balls are coated with white chocolate and strike the perfect balance between seasonal spice, sweet and salty flavors.

Prep: 15 minCook: 0 minTotal: 15 min
Servings: 30 balls 1x


  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 8 oz. room temperature cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup agave nectar, honey or maple syrup
  • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs (can use store-bought or make your own using gluten free graham crackers)
  • 1/4 cup oat flour
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6 gingersnap cookies, chopped in chunks
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons refined coconut oil
  • turbinado sugar and flakey salt for sprinkling on top


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine room temperature cream cheese, pumpkin puree and agave nectar until smooth.
  2. Mix in graham cracker crumbs, oat flour, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, and salt.
  3. Crush gingersnap cookies into small chunks. I like to make sure they are chunkier so that you get little bites of cookie throughout the balls. Fold the cookies into the cheesecake ball batter.
  4. Use a cookie scooper to take portions of the cheesecake mixture and place them on a cutting board or baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Chill in the fridge for about 15 minutes.
  5. Melt white chocolate and refined coconut oil together in a microwave or on a stovetop using a double boiler until smooth.
  6. With clean hands, roll the chilled balls between your hands to make smooth balls. Using a fork, dip each cheesecake ball into the melted white chocolate mixture, ensuring it’s evenly coated. Place them back onto the parchment paper lined cutting board or baking sheet.
  7. While the white chocolate coating is still wet, sprinkle turbinado sugar and flakey salt on top of each cheesecake ball to add extra sweet and salty flavor.
  8. Refrigerate until the white chocolate coating hardens, about 1 hours. Once the pumpkin cheesecake balls have set and the white chocolate is firm, they are ready to be served.
