Easy Pumpkin Caramel:

  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • ¼ cup almond butter
  • ¼ cup pumpkin puree (you’ll use one 15 ounce can of pumpkin total for this and the filling)
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin spice
  • dash sea salt

Creamy Pumpkin Filling:

  • 1 ¾ cup pumpkin puree (you’ll use one 15 ounce can of pumpkin total for this and the caramel)
  • 1 ¾ cup vegan vanilla yogurt
  • ½ cup coconut sugar
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin spice
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt


  • Make the pumpkin caramel by putting everything into a bowl and whisking it hard until it’s smooth and caramel like.
  • Make the pumpkin filling by putting everything into a bowl and mixing until nice and smooth.

You can make this in individual 8 ounce jars or in a square baking dish. Layer the dessert as follows:

  • Crushed cookies.
  • 5 tablespoons pecans
  • 1/3 of the caramel
  • Pumpkin filling
  • 1/3 of the caramel
  • Whipped topping
  • The last of the pecans
  • 1/3 of the caramel


  • You can also use the pumpkin caramel on my site, it’s one you cook and takes a little longer but it is more of a real caramel.
  • The pumpkin caramel makes about 1 cup.
  • This makes a square baking dish or 9 individual 8 ounce jars.
  • Nutrition facts are based on the cookies I used (Simple Mills crunchy cinnamon cookies), yogurt I used (Silk vanilla almond milk yogurt) and the whipped topping I used (So Delicious cocowhip). The info will change depending on what you use.
