FOR THE CRUST
Preheat oven to 350℉.
Lightly spray a 7x3-inch springform pan with cooking spray.
In a medium bowl, mix the almond flour, melted butter, sweetener and vanilla extract together. It should be crumbly, resembling coarse graham crackers. Press the crust mixture into the prepared springform pan and bake for 10 minutes.
Remove from oven and let cool completely while you prepare the pumpkin cheesecake batter.
FOR THE PUMPKIN CHEESECAKE
In large bowl, beat cream cheese and sweetener until light and fluffy on medium-low speed using a hand mixer.
Add the rest of the cheesecake batter ingredients one by one while continuing to beat. If you have a stand mixer, it might be easier :) Beat until smooth.
Pour cheesecake batter mixture into the pan with the cooled crust.
IF BAKING IN OVEN
Bake at 350℉ for 50 - 60 minutes. The center may still be jiggly - this is ok as it will firm up. Remove from oven and let cool completely. Set in fridge for at least 6 hours until set.
Then carefully remove from pan and serve!
IF BAKING IN INSTANT POT
Place the metal trivet at the bottom of your Instant Pot and add 1 1/2 cups water.
Cover the springform pan with the uncooked cheesecake with aluminum foil and carefully place the springform pan with the cheesecake on the trivet.
Place the Instant Pot cover on and set to the pressure release valve to Sealing position.
Set to Manual and High pressure.
Set timer for 40 minutes.
When finished, shift the valve to release pressure and wait til all of the pressure is released - about 20 minutes.
Carefully open your Instant Pot and remove the cheesecake.
Place it on a cooling rack and remove the foil.
Let cool for 1 hour and then transfer to fridge for at least 6 hours until set.
