Pumpkin Bites:

  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin puree
  • 1 egg room temperature
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar packed
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin 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

Cream Cheese Filling:


  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon milk


  • In a small mixing bowl, beat together the filling ingredients and set them aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together pumpkin puree, egg, brown sugar, milk, honey, vegetable oil, pumpkin spice, and vanilla.
  • Add baking powder, baking soda, salt, and flour. Stir just until combined.
  • Spray inside of silicone molds and the lids with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Add half of the pumpkin batter to the molds, filling them only halfway, then top with dollops of the cream cheese mixture. Top with the remaining pumpkin batter. Using a toothpick swirl the batter and filling.
  • Cover the molds with the lids and stack them on a trivet.
  • Add 1 cup of water to Instant Pot, then lower the trivet with the molds into the IP.
  • Lock lid into place and set Pressure Release Valve to sealing.
  • Pressure cook on High Pressure for 10 minutes, then let Natural Pressure Release for 10 minutes.
  • Release the remaining pressure and remove the molds by lifting the trivet out of the IP.
  • Cool for 10 minutes in the molds and after that turn the pumpkin bites out onto a plate for serving.
  • Mix the glaze ingredients in a bowl until smooth.
  • Once completely cooled cover with the glaze and serve.
