  • 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup grated carrots
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • A pinch of ground nutmeg
  • A pinch of ground cloves

Optional Toppings:

  • Cream cheese frosting
  • Shredded carrots for garnish
  • Chopped walnuts for garnish


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs, granulated sugar, and melted butter. Mix until the crumbs are evenly coated with butter.
  2. Line a square or rectangular baking pan with parchment paper, leaving some overhang on the sides for easy removal later.
  3. Press the graham cracker mixture firmly into the bottom of the pan to form a crust layer. Place the pan in the refrigerator while you prepare the cheesecake filling.
  4. In another mixing bowl, beat the softened cream cheese until it becomes smooth and creamy.
  5. Add the powdered sugar and vanilla extract to the cream cheese, and beat until well combined.
  6. Fold in the grated carrots, chopped walnuts, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, and ground cloves, distributing them evenly.
  7. Remove the crust from the refrigerator and spread the cheesecake mixture evenly over the crust layer.
  8. Cover the pan with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or until the cheesecake bites have set.
  9. Once set, use the parchment paper overhangs to lift the cheesecake out of the pan. Place it on a cutting board and slice it into bite-sized squares.

Optional Toppings:

  • If desired, top each cheesecake bite with a dollop of cream cheese frosting, a sprinkle of shredded carrots, and chopped walnuts for a delightful finish.
