Cream Cheese Filling

  • 4 oz cream cheese softened
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Pumpkin Bites

  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup golden brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour


  1. In a small mixing bowl, stir together cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla and set aside.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together pumpkin, egg, brown sugar, milk, honey, vegetable oil, cinnamon, and vanilla. Add baking powder, baking soda, salt, and flour and stir just until combined.

  3. Spray inside of silicone molds and lids generously with non stick cooking spray.

  4. Add half of pumpkin batter to molds, then top with cream cheese mixture. Top with remaining pumpkin batter. Use a toothpick or skewer to swirl batter and filling.

  6. Cook in Instant Pot on High Pressure for 10 minutes, then let Natural Pressure Release for additional 10 minutes.

  7. Release additional pressure and remove Pumpkin Bites by lifting trivet out of Instant Pot. Turn pumpkin bites out onto plate for serving.
