If you like cheesecake, you can always cook this delicious pumpkin dessert. For this simple recipe, you will need the following ingredients:

25 grams of oatmeal. In this recipe, be sure to use only whole grain long-cooked flakes.

15 grams of coconut. Here we are talking exclusively about low-fat chips.

20 grams of rice flour.

30 ml low-fat kefir

sweetener to taste.

This will be the basis of our cheesecake. We will need to chop oatmeal and coconut in a blender. Then mix the resulting mass with other ingredients and put everything into shape, pressing down with your hands. Use a small form (16 cm fits), as we still need a larger form.

Now let’s get into the top layer.

150 grams of low-fat cottage cheese.

200 grams of pumpkin puree.

2 eggs.

1 teaspoon of cornstarch.

200 grams of sour cream. We take low-fat sour cream with 10% fat.

Any natural sweetener to your liking.

We mix all the ingredients with a blender and pour them on our base. Now we put our form with the cheesecake into another larger form and pour ordinary water there (up to half of the first form). We send it to the preheated oven for 45 minutes, at a temperature of 180 degrees. Then turn off the oven and let the cheesecake stand for another 30 minutes. We get out of the oven and let cool. We put it in the refrigerator for the night.

Love sweets, but have to control yourself on the right diet? Why not make healthy pumpkin candy? The main secret to making this dessert is that we will use raw pumpkin, which means that you will get an excellent dose of vitamins and fiber. For this recipe you need the following ingredients:

250 grams of pumpkin. It will need to be grated on a coarse grater and squeezed juice. Do not pour the juice, it may still be useful to you during the preparation process.

150 grams of sunflower seeds. We use already peeled unroasted seeds. They need to be filled with water and let brew for a couple of hours.

100 grams of pitted dates. They can be soaked with seeds. We will use dates as a natural sweetener.

45 grams of oatmeal. You can use any cereal.

35 grams of coconut. Remember that regular chips contain a lot of calories, so low-fat chips are used in dietary recipes.

All you have to do is send all the ingredients to a blender and grind to a uniform state. If your mass is too dry, you can always add a little pumpkin juice. If it turns out to be liquid, add a little oatmeal.

From a homogeneous mass, we mold our sweets. Ready candies can be rolled in carob, coconut chips, or cocoa.

So, you have a pumpkin and there are seeds. In no case do not discard the seeds, because they can be dried. Pumpkin seeds are a storehouse of useful vitamins and minerals, so they can and should be included in your diet. But how to dry them?

First of all, you need to rinse them very thoroughly under running water. Rinse until the feeling of viscosity disappears.

Now you can spread the seeds on a baking sheet with a thin layer. We send it to the oven, heated to 70 degrees, for 20 minutes. Stir the seeds periodically.
